Stephen Chidwick and David Bach are the latest poker pros to claim gold in the 2013 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker.

Bach took down Event 28-H for $51,775 while Chidwick earned $52,320 for topping the Event 27-H field.

The big names have been doing just fine at SCOOP this year and yesterday Jordan Morgan, Thor Hansen, Calvin Anderson and Rory “Mafews” Mathews all made final tables.

At this point it doesn’t even seem to be a surprise that Shaun Deeb is first on the SCOOP leaderboard with 84 events played and a staggering 465 points.

Here’s a look at a couple of the highlight-reel final tables:

Chidwick Outlasts cal42688, Mafews to Win $52k

Stephen "Stevie444" Chidwick

Stephen “stevie444” Chidwick came out on top of a field of 96 players to win Event 27-H $2,100 FL Triple Draw 2-7 for $52,320.

Chidwick, who once won over 100 WSOP Main Event packages before he was even old enough to play the series in Las Vegas, beat a final table that included Cal “cal42688” Anderson and Rory Mathews.

Anderson, who won his fourth SCOOP title earlier this week, made a serious run at the title but was finally derailed in third place for $26,880.

Chidwick went on to beat Dutch pro Bryan “Brryan” Ruiter heads-up to officially take down his second SCOOP title.

Here are the complete final-table results:

  • 1. Stephen "stevie444" Chidwick (United Kingdom) $52,320
  • 2. Bryan "Brryann" Ruiter (Netherlands) $35,040
  • 3. Calvin "cal42688" Anderson (Mexico) $26,880

David “Gunslinger” Bach Smokes Competition to Earn $51k

Thor Hansen
Thor Hansen made another final table.

David Bach once again proved his Stud dominance by outlasting 95 players to win $51,775 in Event 28-H $2,100 Stud Hi-Lo.

Bach actually won this same event in the 2010 SCOOP. Of course Bach’s most memorable win is the $50k H.O.R.S.E. event at the WSOP in 2009.

The Gunslinger had some competition at the final table from another very good Stud player – Thor “Osten” Hansen.

Hansen already has a SCOOP title this year as he beat Shawn Buchanan heads-up to win Event 11-H $2,100 Stud.

It wasn’t to be for Hansen in this event as he soon found his way to the rail in seventh place for $8,075.

It eventually came down to Bach vs. Scott "gunning4you" Seiver for the title and it was Bach who got the last shot in.

Here are the results of the final table:

  • 1. David "Gunslinger3" Bach (Panama) $51,775.00
  • 2. Scott "gunning4you" Seiver (Canada) $35,150.00
  • 3. WhooooKidd (Mexico) $26,600.00
  • 4. buzzard1881 (Canada) $18,050.00
  • 5. BUMM73 (Russia) $13,300.00
