PokerStars’ Spring Championship of Online Poker continues in full force and with the end in site many players are even more desperate to try and grab a SCOOP title as well as that PokerStars wristwatch. Event # 33 was a 1rebuy 1addon tournament that was jam packed full of action and, with a total prize pool of nearly two million dollars combined, it made for a great set of tournaments.
SCOOP 2012 Event # 33 L $27
The lowest buy in tournament fielded nearly nine thousand players, thirteen away to be exact, and saw 5,873 rebuys as well as 3,972 add-ons. The total prize pool was nearly $500,000 nearly doubling the guarantee. After many grueling hours from this deep stacked tournament with an amazing structure for lots of play, the final table shaped up looking like this.
Seat 1: bloby (10,078,352 in chips)
Seat 2: zenonmika (2,387,790 in chips)
Seat 3: wasole (5,130,570 in chips)
Seat 4: jaco921 (4,205,594 in chips)
Seat 5: nikol1999 (7,343,489 in chips)
Seat 6: PaDiLhA SP (9,850,371 in chips)
Seat 7: Squishee_Bob (2,475,717 in chips)
Seat 8: TummerDK (5,340,406 in chips)
Seat 9: salamandryko (9,683,711 in chips)
The chips stacks were ptretty even for the top 4 and pretty close to even for the bottom 5 so it was anyone’s game to win. Unfortunately for Squishee_Bob it was not his day and he went out in 9th place when he shoved KcJs against chip leader Bloby’s pocket tens. Bloby took out another player in when his flush took out Zenonmika in 7th place. Unfortunately for bloby despite knocking out two players at the final table and coming in as chip leader, bloby went out in 3rd when he was knocked out by PaDiLhA and he collected $35k for his efforts.
In a rather short conclusion PaDiLhA ended the tournament by hitting a 9 with his A9o against nikol1999′s AJ when the money was put all in preflop. Congrats to all who made the final table.
