After more than 12 hours of play, a field of 502 players was whittled down to a winner on Day 2 of SCOOP 121-M: $109 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, Sunday Million SE]. At the end of the day, it was Clark "snake8484" Hamagami who emerged as the winner of the grand prize of $153,744 plus a nice amount of $43,073 in bounties. He defeated "TruePrayer" after a heads-up that lasted for over an hour.

A total of 4,263 players took a slice of the $3,080,900 prize pool which was created by the 30,909 entries that were collected on Day 1. Start of day chip leader Rob "robc1978" Cowen managed to stay among the top stacks throughout the day but succumbed in 5th place after his pocket jacks lost the race against "TruePrayer"'s ace-queen, with the latter hitting a queen on the turn.

Charlotte "Sjlot" Van Brabander, who started the day in fifth place, was eliminated in 87th place after shoving her last big blinds unsuccessfully with queen-jack suited versus "Elena20"'s pocket eights. More familiar faces made it to the money on Day 2 but didn't reach the final table, such as Patrick “pads1161” Leonard (320th), Fedor “GlitchSystem” Kruse (311th), and Aleksejs “APonakov” Ponakovs (171th).

Final Table Action

"A.Cruz8" was the first casualty of the final table when he shoved ace-jack on the button into "Pyha Karu"'s ace-king in the big blind and couldn't find any help.

He was followed to the exit by "Raabinator93" in eighth place after he jammed with pocket tens and got called by Hamagami with ace-king who found a king on the river.

Shortly after, "RUNRANRUNIT" was eliminated in seventh place after he pushed for around 20 big blinds under the gun with pocket sevens and got called by "TruePrayer" with ace-five who hit two pair on the board. "Pyha Karu" was "TruePrayer"''s next victim. He needed to find a spot to double up but failed to do so after jamming ace-eight to find a call by "TruePrayer" who had nines.

After the elimination of Cowen, the next on the list was "addionutz" who shoved with queen-jack offsuit and got called by "TruePrayer"'s king-nine suited. The board gave a pair of nines to "TruePrayer" to end "addionutz"'s run in fourth place.
