PokerStars SCOOP 2014 – Big Names Scoop Titles


The PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker has been running almost a week now and it has brought us the big winners we have come to expect each year. We will take you through of the events in which some household names when it comes to poker have secured titles in the most popular online poker series around.

Event 13 –H $2,100 Single Draw 2-7 – Seiver Wins Title

Scott Seiver has achieved a lot in his poker career but a SCOOP title was one thing he did not have, until now of course. He overcame a tough field of big names including Phil Galfond and Mike Watson to claim victory in this one worth a cool $37k.

How It FInished

1st) Scott “gunning4you” Seiver – $37,000.00

2nd) Tobias “H.Oussale” Wenker – $25,000.00

4th) Vincent “Vingtcent” van der Fluit – $10,000.00

5th) Mike “SirWatts” Watson – $7,500.00

6th) Alex “BiatchPeople” Luneau – $5,500.00

Event 17-H $2,100 Omaha Hi/Lo Danzer Comes Close

Unlike Seiver, PokerStars Team Pro George Danzer has won a SCOOP before, three of them infact and he came close to winning his fourth here. He made it to the final table and then heads-up but just could not quite get past the final hurdle in “aless_84” to claim the title. He still took home $44,540 for his runner up finish so will certainly not be too upset.
