MTT savant Dan “djk123” Kelly got one step closer to Shaun Deeb territory by winning his sixth COOP title yesterday.

The U.S. pro outlasted 97 players in Event 30-H to win $45,377. It was his second PokerStars SCOOP title but he already has a record four WCOOP wins.

As a sharp contrast fellow MTT grinder Randal “RandAllin” Flowers finally got his due by winning his first SCOOP in the $2,100 PLO ZOOM tournament.

Some of the other notable players to make decent scores last night included Justin Bonomo and upstart online high-stakes player jama-dharma.

Jude Ainsworth also final tabled the $1,050 NLHE event that also included Giuseppe “Ansgar2000” Pantaleo.

Here’s a look at two of the most significant tables last night:

Kelly Outlasts Bonomo to Win $2,100 Razz

Justin Bonomo
Dan Kelly busted ZeeJustin in sixth.

Dan Kelly proved his diversity by picking up a win in Event 30-H $2,100 Razz yesterday.

It was Kelly’s second SCOOP but once you add his four WCOOP titles he’s up to six overall COOP victories. That’s second only to Shaun Deeb who has a total of seven COOP titles, with five in SCOOP.

The final table in Event 30-H was no cakewalk, as Kelly had to deal with noted high-stakes pro Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo. Kelly came to play, however, and he eventually busted Bonomo in sixth.

Here’s a look at the final-table results:

  • 1. Daniel "djk123" Kelly (Australia) - $45,377.50*
  • 2. SebbyGl (Germany) - $43,377.50*
  • 3. ShellyCalls (Australia) - $27,160.00
  • 4. redeste (Russia) - $18,430.00
  • 5. AceQuad (Mexico) - $13,580.00
  • 6. Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo (Canada) - $10,185.00
  • 7. villepn (Finland) - $8,245.00
  • 8. blanconegro (Mexico) - $6,305.00

The North Carolina native outlasted 312 players and a final table that included recent high-stakes upstart jama-dharma.

Flowers then out-dueled heads-up opponent zwacke to claim the title. The German zwacke picked up $93,600 for his second-place finish.
