The PokerStars SCOOP 2010 Event #3 is in the books! Many dreams came true, and others got shattered, in what was an awesome display of tournament magnificence.
As we know, each 카지노사이트 event is broken down into 3 tourneys, with each one catering to a different audience in terms of buy-in. Today’s events had the following buy-ins: $5.50 for the Low Buy-in tournament, $55 for the Medium Buy-in tournament, and $530 for the Highest Buy-n tournament. The game in question today was 6-Max NL Hold’em R/A.
Let us begin with the Low Buy-in tournament. At just $5.50, it was a lock to attract a huge tournament field. That is just what it did, when the tournament attracted 24,162 participants. And because of this (and the fact that it was a rebuy event), the prize pool ballooned to a staggering $403,885, which is probably a record setting amount for a $5.50+R tournament. This field was as wide and varied as possible, including poker players with all sorts of distinctions. Several PokerStars Pros were also in this tournament, including Anh Van Nguyen, Emad Tahtouh, Thierry van den Berg, Chad Brown, Sebastian Ruthenberg and the always intense Hevad Kahn.
Because of the size of the field, the amount of players who cashed was equally amazing: a total of 4,200 players made the money in SCOOP 2010 E3-L, which is a lot more than 99% of “large field” tournaments get in number of entrants!
The final table of this tournament was comprised entirely of unknowns, each with their eye on the incredible prize worth $45.026.72, and not to mention the endless bragging rights that come for having defeated such a large field and conquer a SCOOP title.At the end of the day, it was DJ_PissedOFF from Moscow, Russia, that took down the top prize. He participated in an excruciating heads-up battle with Jundawomg whom in turn put all his or her efforts into it, but fell just short despite having entered the final table with the dominant chip lead.
The final hand of this epic tournament went down as follows:
PokerStars No-Limit Hold’em, 5.5 Tournament, 1000000/2000000 Blinds 250000 Ante (2 handed) – Poker-Stars Replayer from Poker Hands Replayer
DJ_PissedOFF bets t10000000, Jundawomg calls t8000000
Flop: (t20500000) K, 8, J (2 players)
Jundawomg checks, DJ_PissedOFF bets t10000000, Jundawomg raises to t38000000, DJ_PissedOFF raises to t70000000, Jundawomg raises to t123355176 (All-In), DJ_PissedOFF calls t53355176
Turn: (t267210352) 9 (2 players, 1 all-in)
River: (t267210352) J (2 players, 1 all-in)
Total pot: t267210352
DJ_PissedOFF had K, Q (two pair, Kings and Jacks).
Jundawomg had 8, K (two pair, Kings and Jacks).
Outcome: DJ_PissedOFF won t267210352
A totally routine but disheartening bad beat sent Jundawomg home in second place with $32,310.80, which is definitely not bad at all for a $5.50 tourney no matter how you look at it. DJ_PissedOFF we suspect is not as pissed off anymore as he collected $45,026.72 in cold hard cash for his efforts that night. Congratulations!
A big round of applause to everybody who participated, and we wish you the best of luck for the
The medium buy-in tournament highlights what we mentioned about the size of the SCOOP 2010 #3-L tournament. There were exactly 4444 (a nice number for the superstitious among you) hopefuls who put their money where their collective mouths were to participate in SCOOP 2010 #3-M. This is of course a very impressive turnout on its own accord, but was just 244 more players than the amount who cashed in the lower buy-in tourney.
The medium buy-in event attracted a rather tough crowd. Skilled tournament and SNG players, HU players, cash game players, and players with even more varied backgrounds and skills, populated the tournament and could be found on each and every table all the way to the final table.
heavenwalker was the first to exit the final table, earning $10,716.80 in the process. Sometime after his exit, the players started discussing a potential deal. An agreement was struck, with 4 of the remaining 5 players to get exactly $50K, and with Renaud (who was the overwhelming chipleader at the time) to receive $58K. There was $25K left to fight for after this deal.
Norris9911, Renaud (aren’t you glad you made that deal) and jigga_wigga1 were next to go in order. The final battle was between Mokers and Norm427, and this lasted a very short amount of time compared with the rest of the final table, taking just 10 hands total to finish.
