Okay guys, here I am presenting you a tournament recap for all 3 SCOOP Event 5s, both in the low buy-in spectrum, medium buy-in spectrum, and high buy-in spectrum.
Event 5 is special, because it was a shootout event. A shootout event is just like a SNG, where the winner of a SNG advances to the next SNG and so forth. The only difference is that upon reaching the next table, you always start out with 100BB, and the next blind round kicks in, then the antes are also added to the mix. So, if the next round should have an ante, this is omitted upon reaching the final table. The next round will feature antes as normal though.
As we all know by now, every event for PokerStars’ first ever SCOOP is played out three times; once in a low buy-in format, next in medium buy-in format, and then in large buy-in format.
Scoop Event 05 – L – $16,50 Buy-in
Tons of new faces in this one, but in the end, a familiar face took it all down. The SCOOP event 5 $16,50 NLHE 4x shootout was unique in several ways. Not only did it have 9K entrants, but its prize pool got divided only among the top 먹튀검증 100 players, which not only meant a steep prize structure, but also that the main prizes would be staggering amounts of buy-in for the game. For instance, the winner had about a 150,000% ROI!!! The event also lasted very long, and was grueling and exhausting. All the players who won big did so deservedly. Congrats!
Without further ado, allow me to summarize some of the final table action:
thedylan1 was the first casualty of the final table, taking home $1902.19 for a measly $17 investments. ParaMarc followed shortly after, and was eliminated in 9th place with a cool $2581.54 padding his pockets in return for his efforts. pgppgp also followed shortly thereafter, and he earned $3396.76 for finishing in 8th. Keep in mind that this was only on a $17 buy-in!!!
BPV3′s tournament was also over shortly thereafter. $4279.91 was coming his way for finishing in 7th. jonny2jabs would not believe liberace’s bet on a [4h Ks Kc 9c] and shoved all-in holding [8s 8c]. Liberace almost insta-called with [Qc Kd], and a meaningless river meant jonny2jabs would leave in 6th, about $5434.81 richer. Chip Lohnson (cool username btw) was next to go in 5th. Standard preflop raise of overcards vs. under pair, his [Ah Js] would not improve vs liberace’s [6h 6c] as the board bricked 5 times, sending him home with just over $6725.57 for his efforts tonight. Foutight was next to bid farewell, as his [4c 4h] got smoked by noxqsez’s [Ac 5h] on a [3c Qd As 9d 3h] board. Foutight earned $9578.84 for his participation in tonight’s event. PokerThun dodged mine after mine after mine, but eventually could not dodge a silver bullet. He thought noxqsez was bluffing on a [3c 4h 6d], when noxqsez massively overbet-shoved for almost 17M chips. PokerThun called and tabled [As Qh], while noxqsez showed [6c 7s] for I HAZ PURRR. No help on either turn or river, and PokerThun was out in 3rd place, earning him a cool $12839.72 for his efforts.
The very next hand noxqsez said, “chip count chop and play for the 2k??” liberace said, “play.” noxqsez said, “ok.”
liberace meant business. At the start of HU, both guys were approximately even in chips. liberace grinded the lead to about 6:1 in his favor. The last hand went down like this:
