Aussies Impress During Opening SCOOP Events

Posted at 09:25 2013-05-15 by Matthew Pitt

The 2013 Spring Championship Of Online Poker is in full swing and it has not taken long for Australian’s to put in some impressive results. If they can continue in this rich vein of form then PokerNetwork would expect big things by the time the SCOOP ends.

SCOOP Event #1: No Limit Hold’em 6-Max

The $215 buy-in Medium Event #1 saw 5,528 buy in and created a $1,105,600 prize pool, the largest slice of which is now in Australia’s “12ziz12” account after they went all the way to become Event #1’s champion.

There was a six-handed deal that saw each player lock up no less than $53,580.08 with “12ziz12” securing the largest payday, namely $120,114.57. That already impressive score had $12,000 added to it when “12ziz12” secured the victory in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Other shoutouts must go to “prot0” of New Zealand for their second place finish and Michael “PapaGreggio” Hawkins for his 11th place finish.

The $2,100 High buy-in event was not as kind to Australian’s although "Money_1985" – a World Championship Of Online Poker winner – finished 18th for a score of $15,094.40.

SCOOP Event #5: No Limit Hold’em Rebuy Turbo

The $1,050 High buy-in attracted some of the very best poker players in the world and a number of Aussie more than held their own among the prodigious talents on show. “bluesky30” navigated his way to 22nd place for a $9,303.00 score while two other Aussies helped themselves to five-figure scores.

MON3Y$HOT” burst the final table bubble and crashed out in 10th place. Although disappointed not to reach the final table, we are sure the $17,277.000 he won will more than help to numb the pain. One man who did reach the final table was Brendon “brendon1717” Rubie, but his fantastic run ended in 8th place, a finish worth $43,192.50.
