Martin Finger scoops a Sunday title

In today's Sunday Round-Up we celebrate SCOOP success with two of's top players.


Finger's SCOOP success

Fantastic Finger
SCOOP's latest 6-max Pot Limit Omaha event attracted some of the game's best last night and when the betting was over it was Martin Finger that finished on top.

Indeed, while the Event #24's Low and Medium incarnations saw a slew of grinders take to the felt, it was the High event that proved the most successful for two of's best known players.

Having made their way past a tough crowd in the early stages of the $1,050 event, Martin '0piggybank' Finger and Ole 'olekonjole' Schemion found themselves just a few eliminations away from a SCOOP title.

On the final table the first player to fall was Swedish veteran Christer 'lennart' Johansson and he was followed by Canada's 'jpro89'.

With four players left Mayu 'marroca55' Roca eliminated German wonder kid Schemion and Dani Stern to earn himself a heads-up showdown with Mr. Finger.

Despite Roca being on a roll it took a series of well-timed moves by Finger soon brought the action to a close when his flopped pair scooped the final pot and the $195,360 top prize.

Sunday Million left hanging

With PokerStars' Spring Championship of Online Poker playing havoc with the site's regular Sunday schedule, yesterday's Million was left without a winner.

After being incorporated into this year's SCOOP roster the Sunday Million was given two-days to crown a winner.

Instead of being the usual one-day affair, the latest Million will come to a conclusion later today as the final 95 players chase the $251,014 top prize.

In total 8,357 hopefuls anted-up to $215 to play for a SCOOP watch and the most recognisable name left in the mix on Day 2 is Dylan 'ImaLucSac' Linde.

However, he'll have his work cut out if he wants his 378,137 stack to threaten the 3,663,732 haul the current chip leader 'Dylxi0n' banked on Day 1.

Brit bags a Sunday title

Thanks to a plethora of action taking place yesterday, the Sunday 500 benefited from an impressive number of entrants.

Indeed, by the time the registration desks closed the $300,000 prizepool had been shattered thanks to 986 players anteing up $530 to play.

As the lion's share of the $493,000 prizepool moved closer it was the UK's 'Zimmy86' that began to take charge.

After seeing off the advances of such luminaries as Kyle Julius, 'Zimmy86' eventually ousted Germany's 'Fresh_oO_D' to bank a Sunday Major title and $86,176.
