2021 PASCOOP Day 15: Overlays Aplenty, 'ChrundleTheGr8' Gets Third Win
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 15 days of the series, 105 events have run their course, catering to 39,428 combined entrants and awarding $2,100,916 in prize money in the process.
The biggest prize by far on Saturday was up for grabs in 33-H: $500 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, High Roller], $50K GTD. There, a field of 95 turned up to leave some free money in play thanks to the hefty guarantee. That would be a theme throughout the day.
In any case, "NervyPudendal" would emerge atop the heap to win $13,503, the only five-figure prize awarded on the day. Other notable finishers included Matt "Thewhitesmith" McNeil, a two-time PASCOOP champ who wound up in third for $3,169 in bounties and prizes.

Prizes include bounties
The $200 Medium had the second-largest guarantee of the day at $35K and it also fell a bit shy with 163 entries leaving some $2,400 in extra meat on the bone. PokerStars PA Ambassador Keith "whoopsboom" Becker made a deep run but fell just shy of the title as "irishbeer1701" managed to get him heads up.
It was a tough three-handed match as the third-place finisher was two-time PASCOOP winner "jbrink22."
Meanwhile, it didn't take long for someone to follow up "waltsnotdeadyet" as a three-time champion. It would be the grinder extraordinaire "ChrundleTheGr8" shipping the Low event for $3,197 to go with two other wins worth about $2,400 combined.
While that Low event did cover the guarantee, it was one of just two events to do so on the day, the other being 32-L: $10 NLHE [6-Max, Win the Button], $4K GTD. Aside from the two events already mentioned another $9,000 or so in overlay was spread across five other tournaments.
Details of the winners and prize pools in those events can be found below.
The final jam-packed Sunday of the schedule sees four events play out for 12 tournaments total, including the 36-H: $300 NLHE Main Event that's being live reported right here on PokerNews. Other highlights include a $100 Marathon and a $200 PLO, and PokerNews will return to coverage Monday with relevant info on all of these events.
