Super Poker Sunday: Alexander Roumeliotis Rules SCOOP $21K High Roller

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

Sweden's Alexander "Sussie Smith" Roumeliotis won the $21,000 buy-in Heads-Up High Roller at the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). The high-stakes heads-up specialist outlasted a field of 41 that was filled with major competition, like Phil Ivey, Ike Haxton, Philipp Gruissem, Phil Galfond, Viktor Blom and Jason Mercier.

Canada's "carrycakes" was the only player standing between Roumeliotis and the title and Roumeliotis took it down to claim the $294,175 top prize. Ole "wizowizo" Schemion, Rachid Ben "SkaiWalkurrr" Cherif, Talal "raidalot" Shakerchi, and "Trueteller," a regular in the nosebleed cash games, also finished in the money

Roumeliotis adhered to the old saying, "Never holler whoa in a horse race!" and took his victory run right into Event 45: NL Hold'em Wrap-Up Turbo Re-Entry to continue the race. He reached the final table where he picked up another $173,636 after a five-way deal was made. He busted in fifth place but his combined wins in less than 24 hours at the tables produced a massive $470,000 payday.

Other notables that took home cash on Sunday were Connor "blanconegro" Drinnan, Konstantin “BongBob” Bücherl, Steven "Zugwat" Silverman, Toby "810ofclubs" Lewis, and Lukas "Lukethafluke" Berglund.

A field of 657 runners kicked of the $10,300 SCOOP-High Main Event on Sunday and built a prize pool of $6,570,000, where a monster payday of $1,235,160 is waiting for the winner on Monday — sixty survivors are still in the competition. At 2 p.m. ET those remaining will play down to a champion. Of those remaining and ready to fire up the felt for the final showdown are some of online poker's finest: Calvin Anderson, Mike McDonald, Shannon Shorr, Taylor Paur, Eugene Katchalov, Phil Ivey, Keven Stammen, Ben Lamb, and Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier.
