2021 PASCOOP Day 7: 4-Maxes Draw Well, Rebuys Overlay Small
Table Of Contents
The 2021 PokerStars Pennsylvania Spring Championship of Online Poker (PASCOOP) kicked off on April 17 and will run through May 3, offering more than $2 million in guaranteed prize pools with buy-ins as low as $5 up to $1,000. The highlight of the series is the two-day $300 buy-in Main Event on May 2 featuring a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Each of the 40 events is comprised of three different tournaments – a High, Medium, and Low buy-in – meaning there’s a total of 120 tournaments. Through the first seven days of the series, 45 events have run their course, catering to 19,773 combined entrants and awarding $941,820 in prize money in the process. The million-dollar mark is within reach and will be hit any day now.
PokerNews will be live reporting various events throughout the series, including the upcoming $200, $100K guaranteed event on Sunday.
4-Max Awards Biggest Prize of the Day
Day 7 of the 2021 PASCOOP would see a bit of overlay for the first time in several events as the Event #14 series — rebuys at $50, $15 and $5 — would see either small overlay or reduced rake throughout the three tournaments. That certainly hasn't been a theme in the series as most of the tournaments have covered their numbers with some room to spare.
In the High event, when all the rebuys and add-ons were tallied up, it wound up just two entries shy of making the number for a whopping $100 of free money added by PokerStars PA. It would be "jbrink22" topping the 195-entry field for $3,970.
Then, there was the Medium event, which saw enough entries to meet the $10,000 guarantee but only if some of the rake was shifted over. Therefore, it wound up being a reduced-rake event with a four-way chop ending things. Assuming the minimum $200 was left over, it was "ActuallLy" who locked up slightly the biggest prize with $1,316 while "jessedoczzz" got $1,305 and "WWCD 187" $1,176. The prolific "ChrundleTheGr8" managed to get the win and $1,376.
The Low event had the biggest overlay with $1,125 and "proletariat55" and "Goosehunter14" enjoyed the biggest slices of that, chopping for $728 and $616, respectively.
The biggest prize of the day, meanwhile, was actually awarded in Event #15-H: $100 NLHE [4-Max], $15K GTD which actually produced a prize pool of nearly $22,000. One-bullet wonder "4TH3K1D$" managed to get the best of the short-handed action and scoop it for $4,211.
It was a three-way chop ending the Medium four-max with "waltsnotdeadyet" grabbing the lion's share at $1,806 as "blackbear326" and "Pkid8658" secured $1,291 and $1,430, respectively. It was the second bink for "waltsnotdeadyet" as they also shipped 09-L: $5 NLHE [Escalating Antes] for $444.
Finally, another solo winner emerged in the Low with "markholmes27" winning for $801.
Event #15-H: $100 NLHE [4-Max], $15K GTD Final Table Results
Some interesting tournaments are on tap for Saturday. To kick things off, there's a progressive knockout (PKO) at price points of $200, $50 and $20 with some sizable guarantees of $25K, $15K and $7.5K. Then, it gets a bit more niche with 5-card pot-limit Omaha for $100, $30 and $10. Those have guarantees of $10K, $5K and $2K. Finally, PASCOOP-18 will be the only heads-up events of the series, dealt in the zoom format and with all of the prize money going to the bounty pool. The unique event has buy-ins of $50, $15 and $5 with guarantees of $15K, $7.5K and $2.5K.
