"TrashNinja00" Wins NJSCOOP Event 51-M: NLHE Main Event
After over ten hours of play, spread out over two days, "TrashNinja00" has emerged victorious over a field of 391 players in the NJSCOOP Event 51-M: NLHE [8-Max, Main Event] to take home $19,938.52.
They had to defeat two notables in the final three, as Steven "FadeOrHoldz" Madara was the runner up, while Sridhar "sri100k" Sangannagari earned third place. All three players earned over $10,000 for their showings.

When the final table started, it was Madara who held the chip lead, but by heads-up it was “TrashNinja00” who held the lead.
This lead would slowly grow until the final hand, where five bets from each player went into the middle preflop. Madara was in a dream spot, holding pocket aces to the tens of “TrashNinja00", but a ten came right on the flop to give “TrashNinja00” top set. No miracle ace came after that, and a disappointed Madara would have to settle for nearly $15,000 in cash.

"Stozypokes" Wins MISCOOP Event #36-H: NLHE Main Event
It only took three and a half hours on the final day of MISCOOP $300 NLHE $200K GTD Main Event to whittle down the 36 survivors out of a field of 871 entries to a winner.
Thirty-six hopefuls entered play Monday night set to pick up where they left off on Sunday's Day 1. "Orlimar17" started the day as the chip leader and stayed atop the leader board after the field was cut in half but their tournament ended on the final table bubble.
From there, it was "Stozypokes" who went on an absolute tear at the final table to claim the lion's share of the $243,880 prize pool and earned the inaugural MISCOOP title, which came with a payday of $41,074.16.

It was eventual champ "Stozypokes" who not only ended the tournament on fire, but also started the final day with a bang by sending "NiceSoftButter" out in the very first hand with pocket aces. Players continued to shove their stacks around the virtual felt and bodies were dropping fast.
When action reached Level 32, seventeen players remained and "Polarithm" started to go on a hot streak of their own. They eliminated five of eight to reach the final table and sat first in chips with whopping 28 million while "Stozypokes" sat second with 16 million.
"BishPlz94" started the final table with less then five big blinds so it was no surprise to see them depart in ninth place while "crazydave1234" and "wldcrd2121" fell shortly after in the same level.
When six players remined, "Stozypokes" went on an elimination spree sending home four of their final five opponents en route to victory.
