Jorryt "TheCleaner11" van Hoof

The $85 million guaranteed 2020 Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) witnessed nine new SCOOP champions crowned on Day 2 on May 1.

PokerNews’s live reporting team is bringing you coverage of 30 SCOOP events throughout the series, so let’s start with a couple of these featured events first.

SCOOP-02-H: $2,100 NLHE 8-Max PKO Thursday Thrill SE

A first-time champion has been crowned in the 2020 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) Event #02-H: $2,100 NLHE and it was Jorryt "TheCleaner11" van Hoof, arguably the biggest name at the final table, that prevailed in a topsy-turvy affair to beat a field of 575 entries and claim the biggest slice of the $1,150,000 prize pool with a total cash of $176,104 ($88,834 in prizes + $87,721 in bounties).

By the time the heads-up stage was reached in the early morning hours in Europe, a Dutch victory was already locked up as Van Hoof battled with “0m3rta” for the title. The history of the late stages of this Special Edition of the Thursday Thrill showed as the progressive bounty of van Hoof was nearly five times as much as the one of “0m3rta”.

"Not much to do nowadays with quarantine going on," Van Hoof said to directly after his victory. "I feel so lucky as a poker player being able to stay at home and have a lot of fun playing these tournaments. I wish everyone who is in a tougher situation all the best."

The final table also featured Markku "markovitsus" Koplimaa (eighth - $24,262) and Jareth "jareth3542" East (ninth - $14,297), while Bertie "bigstealer" Bayley narrowly missed out and had to settle for 10th place.

SCOOP-03-M: $215 PLO Ends in Heads-up Deal

The SCOOP-03-M: $215 PLO attracted 1,697 entrants to create a $339,400 prize pool to eclipse the $200,000 guarantee.

After two days of play, the action was down to just two players when Poland's "magiet12" and Russia's Aleksandr "EvnomiYa" Mordvinov agreed to a heads-up deal.

Mordvinov was guaranteed to win the biggest prize thanks to the deal but it could have been even bigger if he managed to close out the tournament. Instead, it was "magiet12" that won the event for $43,363 and Mordinov had to settle for $44,186.

Notable players at the seven-max final table included Denmark's Jonas "Tulkaz" Klausen (fourth - $17,454) and Hungary's Andras "probirs" Nemeth (seventh - $5,904).

The final table was full of big names as one might expect for a four-figure buy-in online tournament with Manu "manuverd0n" Bardon, Pedro "pvigar" Garagnani, and former PokerStars ambassador Leo "LeoFernandez" Fernandez all on the podium.

Bardon was the last man standing and took home the top prize of $95,364, while Garagnani took silver for $71,582 and Fernandez claimed bronze for $53,731.

SCOOP-08-M: $109 NLHE 8-Max Turbo Ends in a Heads-up Deal

The tournament took less than 5 1/2 hours from start to finish. Germany's "PokerHoney91" claimed the title and the $38,779 top prize after agreeing to a deal with United Kingdom's "disquesi!" (second - $35,954) after agreeing to a heads-up deal.
