The 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is on the home stretch and entered the final seven days of the competition. Among the latest tournaments to determine a winner will be SCOOP-77-H: $5,200 NLHE [High Roller]. The tournament came up just short of covering the $1 million guarantee as 193 entries emerged, consisting of 126 unique players and 67 re-entries.
Day 1 wrapped up last night once the nine-handed final table was reached and several well-known faces of the international poker circuit made the cut. Uruguay's Mario "MB TREMENDO" Bonanata enters the final table as the chip leader with a stack of 4,126,110 but Laszlo "omaha4rollz" Bujtas is not far behind with 3,605,055.
Estonian regular "DingeBrinker", who has deep runs in several COOP events to their name, is third in chips with 3,477,309. And there will also be plenty of tough competition by the likes of Bert "girafganger7" Stevens, David "dpeters7" Peters, and Simon "C. Darwin2" Mattsson.
