Wiktor "limitless" Malinowski

On Day 4 of the 2021 Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP), one of the game's biggest players Wiktor "limitless" Malinowski showed who's boss by conquering a star-studded final table in SCOOP-13-H: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max] to bank $241,957. Malinowski defeated luminaries such as Simon "C. Darwin2" Mattsson and Christoph "26071985" Vogelsang on his way to victory.

Eight other champions were crowned on Wednesday including Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos who once again showcased why he's considered among the elite on the green felt. While Malinowski won the high roller, Mateos steamrolled the medium version of the same event, a $1,050 special edition of the Super Tuesday. The Spaniard received $146,741 for what's already the third SCOOP victory of his career, in addition to his two WCOOP-titles.

Let's take a comprehensive look at everything that transpired on Wednesday during SCOOP 2021.

After just under four hours of play, one of the biggest names in the online poker world, Wiktor "limitless" Malinowski has taken down SCOOP-13-H: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max] for $241,957 by defeating Simon "C. Darwin2" Mattsson heads-up in three hands. Despite his countless accolades, a SCOOP victory has eluded the Polish powerhouse until today.

Malinowski is well known as he can frequently be found on the high-stakes cash games tables and even put out a challenge to play anyone in the world heads-up. He even offered to stream things and play drunk by downing a bottle of wine with the camera on, which Fedor Holz eagerly accepted. It ended with Malinowski dropping over $90k to the German juggernaut, an amount he easily made up for today.

Besides Mattsson, Christoph "26071985" Vogelsang, Pablo "pabritz" Brito, Timothy "Tim0thee" Adams, "psihodelik31", Ryan "Piggysnipz" Pignatelli, Pedro "pvigar" Garagnani, and Joni "bustoville" Jouhkimainen all took a seat at the start of the final table.
