"iConvert13" spent his Tuesday making a statement in the PokerStars Michigan Spring Championship of Online Poker, as they took down the title of SCOOP champion in Event #26: $300 NLHE (Super Tuesday SE), $40K Gtd for $11,630.98 after besting a field of 213 entrants.

It took three bullets to get one that stuck for "iConvert13", and they didn't really make their presence felt until just before the bubble burst. They managed to burst the final table bubble with the elimination of "Exponent1" in tenth, and took a strong chip lead to the final table.

From there, they stayed near or at the top of the counts at the final table, ultimately denying a chop from "Blunce" and taking the SCOOP title outright.

Action of the Day

"GrndChalengChmp" got off to a strong start of the day as one of the early chip leaders, but that momentum left them one spot shy of a cash as they finished in 32nd place, busting at the same time as "CitizenPker". With a smaller chip stack, "GrndChalengChmp" left empty-handed, while "CitizenPker" took home a $625.49 payday for finishing in 31st.

From there, the final table came swiftly, and some of those who took some cash with them include "Corgasm231" (11th - $976.98), "Joe-E-guns" (15th - $842.03), and Henry "xlzou1990" Zou (24th - $725.73).

"flopping air" was the first to fall at the final table, running ace-jack into aces in two separate hands a short time apart to bust. After "Owens18853" and "Po$ter Nutbag" fell in eighth and seventh, "PLAYIN_4_STAXX", who already holds one 2021 MISCOOP title in Event 14-H: $50 NLHE [Rebuy], $15K Gtd, lost a flip to "Hail-6404" to bust in sixth.

"SVSU2021" and the aforementioned "Hail-6404" were next to go, and "Blunce" began discussing a deal with the remaining two players. The deal never went through, and "barry20sanders" bowed out in third. One more small discussion of a deal took place, but never came to fruition, and "Blunce" ran into the aces of "iConvert13" to fall in second.

PokerNews returns tomorrow for coverage of MISCOOP-27-H: $1,000 NLHE (6-Max, High Roller), $50k Gtd, so be sure to tune in for all the action kicking off at 8 p.m. EST!

Level 31 (40,000/80,000 ante 10,000)

"Blunce" raised to 161,600 from the button, and "iConvert13" three-bet to 504,800 in the big blind. "Blunce" called.

"iConvert13" bet 1,029,600 on the {6-Clubs}{4-Spades}{7-Spades} flop, then called when "Blunce" jammed for 364,779 more.

"Blunce": {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
"iConvert13": {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}

"Blunce" was left looking for running cards to survive, and said "gg" in chat once the {3-Spades} fell on the turn. "Blunce" could survive if a non-spade five hit the river for a chop, but the {10-Spades} river gave "iConvert13" a flush and the victory.

Level 30 (30,000/60,000 ante 7,500)

Shortly after losing most of their stack to "iConvert13", "barry20sanders" was all in for 292,978 from the button and at risk against "Blunce" in the small blind.

"barry20sanders": {7-Spades}{6-Spades}
"Blunce": {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

"Blunce" would hit a pair on the {3-Spades}{a-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop to take the lead, but the {4-Spades} turn gave "barry20sanders" plenty of outs with a flush draw and gutshot. The {8-Hearts} river was a brick, however, and "Blunce" earned the knockout.

"Blunce": {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
"Hail-6404": {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

No king came for "Hail-6404" on the {5-Clubs} turn or {6-Spades} river, and "Blunce" took over the chip lead by a fair margin.

Action checked all the way through a {a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} board, and "Hail-6404" showed {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts} for the stone nuts. "iConvert13" mucked.
