The 2014 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) is underway on PokerStars. The tournament series kicked off three days ago (May 4th) and already two of poker's big names have come close to a title each.
Canada's Sorel Mizzi received an incredible $278,980 for his runner-up finish in Event 2 (High - $2,100 NLH - 1,073 entrants ) and Team PokerStars Pro Nacho Barbero, from Argentina, finished second in Event 5 (Medium - $215 FL Badugi - 311 entrants) for $9,019!
The 2014 SCOOP (TOTAL PRIZE POOL $40,000,000) takes place from May 4-18 and features 45 events, including the massive $10,300 Main Event. However, there's something for every type of player as all events are available in Low, Medium and High buy-in, with the cheapest tourneys starting from just $5.50!
Also, there are satellites to all events running around the clock, so it does not have to cost more than a few dollars/VIP points to play in the Main Event or any other expensive tourney for that matter. Good luck, mobsters!
