PokerStars SCOOP update: Pros dominating

Posted by Steve Ruddock on May 14, 2012 Posted in Online Poker News, Tournament News | No Comments »

The 2012 running of the PokerStars SCOOP (Spring Championship of Online Poker) tournament series has been wild so far, with a number of online poker players dominating the early tournaments, including the impressive run by Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, where the Team PokerStars Pro won back-to-back SCOOP tournaments, capturing Event #2 and Event #3, and over $400k in the process.

Isildur1 isn’t the only big named who is making hey in the 2012 SCOOP, joining Blom in the two-win SCOOP club was Shaun Deeb, who picked up his second SCOOP win in 2012 and his third overall this weekend, after capturing the Triple Stud tournament title.

Other players ripping it up in the SCOOP series include Lock Poker pro Paul “PaulGees” Volpe, George “Jorj95” Lind, George Danzer, Mickey “Mement_Mori” Petersen, and Steve “Gboro780” Gross.

Here is a look at some of the recent results from the PokerStars 2012 SCOOP series:
