Team PokerStars Ambassador Fintan “easywithaces” Hand has joined the ranks as a three-time SCOOP champion after defeating a field of 283 entries in the SCOOP 34-H: $2,100 NLHE PKO Warm-Up for $119,046 including a whopping $71,820 in bounties.

Hand streamed his victory to his fans and friends on his Twitch channel, who witnessed his heads-up opponent “PepaPig88” come back from just a single big blind.

Swedish online poker sensation Niklas “lena900” Astedt has done it yet again as on Monday evening he won his sixth SCOOP title by winning the SCOOP 36-H: $1,050 PLO8 6-Max for $34,456.

Astedt is one of the most successful online poker players of all time with nearly $24 million in online tournament cashes as tracked by PocketFives, where he has been ranked the top dog in the world on several occasions throughout the years. 

One might think he is a one-trick pony, but Astedt has proven he can be successful outside the popular no-limit hold’em tournament arena with SCOOP victories also in PLO8, LO8, and Stud Hi/Lo.

Everyone dreams of winning a SCOOP title. Winning two in one festival has been done often enough but is still something special.

Ami “UhhMee” Barer recently had the honor of doing just that. Earlier in the festival, Barer navigated through a field of 360 entries in the SCOOP 16-M: $109 6+ Hold’em Turbo for $6,612. A few days later, he won a much bigger prize of $57,161 including bounties after shipping his second SCOOP title of the year in the SCOOP 32-H: $1,050 NLHE 7-Max Hyper PKO.

With these two victories, Barer has doubled his career SCOOP titles to four and counting. He somewhat broke a rut with his first two SCOOP titles coming years ago in 2012 and 2014.

Ole “wizowizo” Schemion is another old-school grinder that has experienced early success in the 2022 SCOOP. In fact, he has won the biggest prize to date this festival after defeating Laszlo “omaha4rollz” Bujtas heads-up to win the SCOOP 13-H: $10,300 NLHE Super Tuesday High Roller for $202,432 and his fifth SCOOP title.

Remarkably, this isn’t the biggest SCOOP win for Schemion as he has managed two bigger SCOOP victories including the 2018 SCOOP 32-H: $10,300 PLO for $283,260 and the 2022 SCOOP 102-H: $10,300 NLHE High Roller for $258,639.

Perhaps there is still more SCOOP victory left to come if one believes in patterns as he had two victories in 2018 along with another two in 2020.

Benny “RunGodLike” Glaser is just the gift that keeps giving as he has one a SCOOP title each year since 2018.

Glaser’s seven SCOOP victories ties him in second place with Jussi “calvin7v” Nevanlinna and Mike “SirWatts” Watson with his titles coming in many different formats including HORSE, 8-Game, FLHE, Stud Hi/Lo, PLO, and 2-7 Triple Draw. There is still work to be done for Glaser to become the all-time SCOOP victory leader as he is still three titles behind the ten SCOOP titles won by Calvin “cal42688” Anderson.
