Thus far Australian players have made seven final tables and jotothejo took home the bacon in the Medium Event 7. In this article, we will recap the performance of our boys and girls through events 9 to 15. Remember the SCOOP series has something for everyone with three levels of buy-ins in each event low, medium and high.

Event 9 was the No-Limit Hold’em SuperKnockout event were half the buy-in is held as a bounty on each players head and the one who ends their tournament will claim that cash. In the low $27, delaney_kid racked up the eighth Australian final table of the festival and $10,972 for coming 4th. AgroEsco was best of the Aussies in the medium $215 event getting a $1,027 cash for his 25th place showing in addition to any bounties that were undoubtedly claimed on route to the deep run. Proving his skills at this format delaney_kid was the top Aussie in the $2,100 high event coming in 52nd for $2,726.

Event 10 was the Limit Stud and in the $27 low event, Australia’s 32nd highest ranking online player, TurnRiva extracted a small result by coming 121st for $69. The medium $215 event drew small numbers but djk123 was yet again the top finishing Aussie resident as his SCOOP rumbled on well with a 23rd for $741. In the $2,100 high, James “Andy MCLEOD” Obst, one of the most well-known members of the Adelaide online mafia, made it final table number nine for Australia with 3rd place for $19,200.

Event 11 saw the continuation of the mixed games with Omaha Hi/Lo 6 Max. The low event was a $7.50 buy-in and loaded69 multiplied his money with a 41st place for $111. Pokerstars Team Online Pro Rohit ‘GodlikeRoy’ Bhasin a master of high stakes PLO was top of the Aussies in the medium $82 coming 39th for $387. The high saw players spend $700 for their entry and again it was loaded69 showing his skills at this format as he topped the local entrants for 12th place and $3,333.

Event 12 was back to one on one action with the Pot Limit Omaha Heads Up. dribbs#13 went the deepest finishing 66th for a $149 payout in the low event. The medium was a $215 event and ACforKP brought $860 back into his online coffers for finishing in 36th. The high was notable for yet again another deep Isildur1 run who finished 5th. While the Swede is having a great SCOOP so is djk123 and he yet again finished top of the Aussies for $5,192.

Event 13 was the No-Limit Hold’em Knockout this time a smaller proportion of the buy-in was reserved for the bounty portion as compared to the SuperKnockout Event 9. ENOSUS was the top Wallaby and came 11th for $1,424 in the low event. The medium was a $265 buy-in with $50 heading towards bounties but 224th was the best an Aussie could make as Semesa1 cashed for $565. The high was $2,100 entry but no Aussie could take a piece of the pie.

Event 14 was the No-Limit Hold’em Ante-Up where the blinds stay the same for the whole tournament but the antes increase. CarltonRulz broke the three event break without an Aussie final table as he brought the tenth as he chopped up the low event (officially finishing 3rd) for $8,539 and very sweet return for his $7.50 entry fee. The medium event had 1997 runners forking out $82 and it was Noiberman who finished top Aussie for the second time of series, this time claiming another Aussie final table finishing 5th for $7,114. The $700 event was the damage for entering the high and skyhookers hooked 36th for $1,620.

Event 15 brought back the mixed games with the Fixed Limit Omaha Hi/Lo. The low was $27 in and 1willcallu claimed 27th for $222. The medium event was another big moment for Australian poker as none other than TurnRiva claimed the second bracelet of the series for the locals. He battled through 575 players to win it all and $21,735! In the high, it was a Kiwi who showed how it’s done Lyndon360 just missed the bracelet but took 2nd and $38,850.
