The 2015 edition of PokerStars' Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) ended on Sunday with three Main Events in Low, Medium and High buy-ins. Despite the latter having a buy-in of $10,300, 694 entries were made and generated a prize pool of $6,940,000 (the orginal guarantee was $4 million)!

No deal was made on chopping the prize money on the final table so the winner, Mustapha "lasagnaaammm" Kanit, ended up waking away with a whopping $1.3 million! Kanit, born in Italy but located in England, won his first SCOOP last year, a $2,100 buy-in tournament for $376,920. He won the €50,000 Super High Roller at the EPT11 Grand Final in Monaco last month, a score worth €936,500. Add to that his latest cash worth $1.3 million!

Mustapha Kanit must now be based in the UK as on Hendon he is listed as from Italy.Before this win he had won close to a million playing live,only a couple of weeks ago,so he is on a nice streak.

I believe this will be a good news for my degenerated friend pochui when he will learn that his fellow buddy Mustapha won big once again...

Many congratulations to Mustapha Kanit on yet another big win and what a tremendous heater this guy is on. It was also nice to see Viktor Blom go so deep in the tournament

I am sorry but cut this bias already. The guy who leaves the tourey in the 12th place is by definition far away from winning the title. I don't care if he is Isildur or Frodo or Sauron himself, he was not even close to get this one in the bag. Wasn't even on the final table.
