For over a month, the extended 2020 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) was at the forefront of the poker world's attention. Last night, the final twelve events reached their conclusion, ending a series that awarded over $185,000,000 in total prize money with a bang.
Among the winners on the final day was Brazil star Joao "IneedMassari Simao, who topped SCOOP 120-H: $2,100 NLHE [Sunday Warm-Up SE] for $150,547. It was Simao's second victory this SCOOP, following in the footsteps of plenty of earlier repeat winners this series.
Portugal's Rui "RuiNF" Ferreira claimed the overall honors as the SCOOP 2020 Player of the Series, capping off an incredible month for him. Throughout the SCOOP, Ferreira notched over 100 (!) cashes and nine final tables. Ferreira basically led the leaderboard from start to finish, and although 2019 champ Konstantin "krakukra" Maslak came back within striking distance, Ferreira closed it out for a bonus of $50,000 and the PoY trophy.
Check out below for a recap of the final day of the SCOOP 2020!

Simao Defeats O'Dwyer in SCOOP-120-H $2,100 NLHE [Sunday Warm-Up SE], $500K Gtd
When play resumed today in SCOOP-120-H $2,100 NLHE [Sunday Warm-Up SE], it looked to be Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer's title to lose, as he came into the day with a comfortable chip lead over the field.
On the opposite side, Brazilian pro Joao "IneedMassari" Simao came into the day as one of the shorter stacks, but was able to double up early and never looked back, defeating O''Dwyer heads up to take home over $150,000.
|1||Joao "IneedMassari" Simao||Brazil||$150,547|
|2||Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer||Ireland||$112,819|
|3||Job "DeadNylan" Greben||Netherlands||$84,546|
|5||Matt "OLD TIME GIN" Stone||Canada||$47,381|
|8||Andres "wisopekeño!" Gonzalez||Spain||$19,983|
Simao started the final table as the short stack, but he would double up on one of the first hands when he won a big coin flip against "m.a-0000." He would go on to double up again later with pocket queens against O'Dwyer, but without question, the biggest hand for Simao came when he cracked the pocket aces of Matt "OLD TIME GIN" Stone.
Simao and O'Dwyer were virtually even heads up, but Simao pulled away quickly, before eventually finishing O'Dwyer off in a hand where the Irishman flopped two pair, but his Brazilian foe made a full house on the river.
SCOOP-121-M: $109 NLHE [8-Max, PKO, Sunday Million SE], $2.5M Gtd
After more than 12 hours of play, a field of 502 players was whittled down to a winner on Day 2 of SCOOP 121-M: $109 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, Sunday Million SE]. At the end of the day, it was Clark "snake8484" Hamagami who emerged as the winner of the grand prize of $153,744 plus a nice amount of $43,073 in bounties. He defeated "TruePrayer" after a heads-up that lasted for over an hour.
It wasn't an unfamiliar spot for Hamagami who's been here before: back in 2013, he captured his first Sunday Million title and eclipsed that performance seven years later with an even bigger victory.
A total of 4,263 players took a slice of the $3,080,900 prize pool which was created by the 30,909 entries that were collected on Day 1. Start of day chip leader Rob "robc1978" Cowen managed to stay among the top stacks throughout the day but succumbed in 5th place after his pocket jacks lost the race against "TruePrayer"'s ace-queen, with thheb e latter hitting a queen on the turn.
Charlotte "Sjlot" Van Brabander, who started the day in fifth place, was eliminated in 87th place after shoving her last big blinds unsuccessfully with queen-jack suited versus "Elena20"'s pocket eights. More familiar faces made it to the money on Day 2 but didn't reach the final table, such as Patrick “pads1161” Leonard (320th), Fedor “GlitchSystem” Kruse (311th), and Aleksejs “APonakov” Ponakovs (171th).
|1||Clark "snake8484" Hamagami||Canada||$153,744||$43,073||$196,817|
|5||Rob "robc1978" Cowen||United Kingdom||$39,690||$11,125||$50,815|
