Carrel Leads SCOOP Event-24-H: $10,300 NLHE High Roller

Charlie Carrel

The money bubble has burst to determine the 15 finalists in Event SCOOP Event-24-H: $10,300 NLHE High Roller. They are all guaranteed a portion of the $1,240,000 prize pool after beating the majority of the 124-entry strong field and have $22,662.11 locked up for the efforts.

Two-time SCOOP champion Charlie "Epiphany77" Carrel will lead the charge for the top prize of $271,790.44 with a stack of 5,630,571 when the action resumes the following day at 1 p.m. Eastern Standard time and the Brit was also responsible for the money bubble to burst. However, especially early on, things didn't look as good as Carrel was on the verge of re-entry but managed to spin up a shorter stack before turning on the heat in the late stages.

Second in chips is Russian player "Futti18" with 4,727,954 and third-placed Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos (3,191,654) also already has a SCOOP title under his belt. The remaining field is not shy of big names and High Roller regulars either. Wiktor "limitless" Malinowski sits in fourth with 2,777,856 followed by Luke "Bit2Easy" Reeves (2,505,299), Mustapha "lasagnaaammm" Kanit advanced with 1,816,852 and seeks a third SCOOP title.

Mike "goleafsgoeh" Leah Lead SCOOP-24-M: $1,050 Super Tuesday SE

Mike Leah

After Day 1 of the PokerStars 2020 SCOOP-24-M: $1,050 Super Tuesday SE 72 players out of 1,105 entries have made it through to the final day. The tournament originally had a guaranteed prize pool of $1,000,000 but earlier today PokerStars announced that they would increase the guarantee of several tournaments to total $95,000,000 over the whole series. And the Super Tuesday was one of them as the guarantee was increased to a whopping $1,250,000.

Taking the chip lead honors for Day 1 is a familiar name and face in the poker world: Mike "goleafsgoeh" Leah has collected 4,933,992 in chips for Day 2. The Canadian has won millions of dollars playing poker live and online already and probably won't mind another title to his already lengthy resumé with two SCOOP wins in 2019 and four in total over the years. Leah is followed in the chip counts by "Neanderthal4" (3,709,616), "sangnv" (3,551,245), Ariel "ArielBahia" Celestino (3,246,246), and "olle1FIN" with 3,200,727.
