A recent big score by PokerNews online poker blogger Matt "plattsburgh" Vengrin in the ongoing PokerStars All-Stakes Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) demonstrated again that poker players and fans of all bankroll levels can participate – via staking opportunities at ChipMeUp – in some of the biggest poker events around.
Vengrin's deep run in SCOOP Event #8-Hi, $3,150 No-Limit Hold'em, resulted in an eventual 24th-place finish worth $15,000. After accounting for the buy-in, the six shares purchased by four different CMU members each enjoyed a 168% return on investment, in addition to the excitement of participating in one of the biggest tourneys on the entire SCOOP schedule.
Vengrin (who can be found at ChipMeUp under the handle "MattVengrin") isn't alone in participating in both past and upcoming events… and offering shares of themselves on ChipMeUp. Here's just a sampling of some of the big-name players who have shares of themselves in upcoming events (ChipMeUp handles in parentheses):
