Last night, one of our very own was able to triumph in this year's edition of the Spring Championship of Online Poker at PokerStars.

English SpinLegends coach 'Epistokrat', also a member of our German community, came out on top in the $215 NLHE Heads-up Shootout for a first prize of $18,567.

On his way to the win, Epistokrat was able to push through against 512 other entries in the two-day event which guaranteed a prize pool of at least $102,400. After getting in a good night's sleep, he commented in a brief chat with us:

"Generally, I don't play a lot of standard MTTs, only with minor exceptions like the Sunday Million, but I'm always trying to get in on as many heads-up events as possible. I believe they are the most profitable ones for me due to my experience in that format. I'm still going to dive in on some of the 3-max and 4-max events coming up in SCOOP, still I wish there were more heads-up tournaments available. Nonetheless, it's great that things worked out and I was able to win this event!"

Congratulations from everyone at and SpinLegends to Karcist alias Epistokrat on this great success!

Ole Schemion makes it two

In other news, someone else caught quite a heater in this year's spring tournament series by PokerStars.

At the start of the week, Ole "wizowizo" Schemion was able to outlast a field of 126 entries in the $10,300 PLO High Roller (SCOOP-32-H), defeating a stacked Final Table including Jens Kyllöne, Joao Simao, and Jorryt van Hoof for a massive win of $283,000.

Two days later he went on to also top the $530 NLHE Deep Stacks (SCOOP-36-H), adding another title as well as $85,000 to his SCOOP yield this year and joining five other double SCOOP 2018 winners so far.
