Twenty-one players went to bed with chips after Day 1 of the 2021 PokerStars SCOOP-93-H: $10,300 PLO [6-Max, PLO Main Event], $1.25M Gtd, but by the time play began on Day 2, twenty-four more names joined those ranks, building an overall prize pool of $1,350,000 between 134 entrants. After a roller coaster six-hour day, the final table of seven is set, with Joao "vovo_leo" Studart and a stack of 7,039,639 leading the pack.
Studart spent the majority of the day wiping players from the tournament, including the elimination of "pkr_falk" on the bubble. Studart also was able to dispatch "Johan5390", Alexey "LuckyGump" Makarov and "rObetOblancO" once the money was reached, and used those chips to fuel his way to the overnight chip lead.
"LamassuShedu" sits in second, while Canadian pro and two-time WSOP Bracelet winner Mark "AceSpades11" Radoja, who was one of the twenty-four max late registrants, is in third. "TheBrodie5", Andreas "Skjervoy" Torbergsen, Ka Kwan "kaju85" Lau and "terror777727" round out the final table of seven.
