Viktor Blom wins PokerStars SCOOP $10K Main Event

Viktor Blom 2013 SCOOP ME
Share this

The 2013 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) finished with a bang when champions were crowned in the three Main Events on Monday. The events began on Sunday with three different buy-in levels — low ($109); medium ($1,050); and high ($10,300) — scheduled as two-day events, each featured a guaranteed prize pool of at least $1 million.

More than one top pro made deep runs as the hunt for the first place prize of $1 million and bragging rights waited at the final table. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was right there, charging through the field of runners, looking for his third SCOOP title and, obviously, the prize money. Notables Noah "Exclusive" Boeken, Mike "munchenHB" Telker, Ravi "govshark2" Raghavan, and Sergio "zcedrick" Aido were right there, trying to outrun each other. Blom started behind Boeken in heads-up play and played his way up to win the event.

Regulars in High-stakes tournaments, Thiago “XTheDecanoX” Nishijima, Konstantin "BongBob" Bücherl, and Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo, were eliminated when it went to two tables, but the fire power was out in full force when the final nine players made it to the SCOOP High Main Event final table. Along with the seven-figure payday and the SCOOP champions watch, Blom joins notable former champions, like Nick "GripDsNutz" Grippo, Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro, Ryan "toetagU" Fair and Jude "j.thaddeus" Ainsworth in the SCOOP history books.

Along with the $10,300 Main Event on Sunday, the medium and low buy-in variants were shooting out poker hands and preparing to crown champtions too. Team PokerStars Online member Randy "nanonoko" Lew was at the final table of the medium event, but after agreeing to a four-way deal, he busted in 4th place. The results from the medium and low SCOOP Main Events:
