Through three days of play and 30 completed events, the 2021 MISCOOP has catered to 13,197 entrants and awarded $489,316.05 in prize money.

On Tuesday, David "steadymobbin420" Poppenfuse topped a 593-entry field to win the 2021 MISCOOP 10-M: $50 NLHE [Mini Super Tuesday SE], $25K GTD, good for $4,260.38.

Poppenfuse, 33, is from Otisville, Michigan but currently resides in the Burton/Flint area. He's self-employed but plays poker on the side after first learning the game at the age of 15 while playing in a garage and on golf tees.

"As I got older, I started to take it more seriously and started playing at different places including online prior to 2011," he told PokerNews.

Poppenfuse is well-versed in all games, but he plays primarily no-limit hold'em, pot-limit Omaha, and Omaha Hi/Lo.

"On PokerStars, I mainly play tournaments and play cash live," he revealed. "When I do play live it's $1-$2 or $2-$5 hold'em or PLO for the most part."

Right now, Poppenfuse finds himself among the Michigan poker community taking their game online.
