Day 2 Completed

Level 31 : 40,000/80,000, 0 ante
Connor Drinan

It almost counts as an upset that Connor "blanconegro" Drinan has failed to bring home a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title in 2021 after he rampaged to a record five crowns in 2020.

That could change after Day 2 of SCOOP-93-M: $1,050 PLO [6-Max, PLO Main Event], $750K Gtd.

With 18 of 935 entries left in the hunt, Drinan is among them, and he has secured a pretty big stack with 8,758,358, ranking third behind Ramon "ZéDoBlefe11" Sorgatto (15,437,916) and Tyler "Juicy_J_93" Jardine (9,952,887).

In addition to the notables above, others making it through included former EPT Prague champ Julian "jutrack" Track, Thiago "KKremate" Crema, Jan "Tagult" Collado and Espen "locomi" Myrmo. The latter two have the shortest stacks and will be under 20 big blinds when play resumes at 50,000/100,000 for Day 3.

Some of those cashing among the 119 paid places but missing out on Day 3 included Eelis "EEE27" Parssinen, Francisco "Tomatee" Benitez, Ole "wizowizo" Schemion, Daniel "Oxota" Dvoress, Yuri "theNERDguy" Dzivielevski, and Patrick "pads1161" Leonard.

Day 3 will see play resume at 1:05 p.m. EDT and action continue until a winner has emerged to lay claim to $153,356 in first-place prize money. Come back to PokerNews then to follow this event once more.

Tr!pleeeee Eliminated on Day 3 Bubble

Level 31 : 40,000/80,000, 0 ante

Ramon "ZéDoBlefe11" Sorgatto opened for 240,000 under the gun and "Tr!pleeeee" potted to 840,000 on the button. Sorgatto called and checked the {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{5-Spades} flop. Tr!pleeeee stuck in the last 752,334 and was quickly called.

Tr!pleeeee: {q-Spades}{7-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}
Sorgatto: {a-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{10-Spades}{6-Spades}

Sorgatto had an enormous hand with the nuts plus two redraw but still had to fade some cards. The {4-Hearts} and {7-Diamonds} were just fine for him.

That means the final 18 players have secured spots in Day 3.

Sorgatto Inches Day Closer to End

Level 31 : 40,000/80,000, 0 ante

Gaston "g-man/obell" Belluscio opened for 160,000 in the cutoff, Ramon "ZéDoBlefe11" Sorgatto called on the button and "d.apollo777" shoved for 320,748 in the small blind. It went three ways to {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Spades} for that price and a {5-Diamonds} turned after two checks. Belluscio check-called 625,800.

Check-check again on the {6-Diamonds} river and Sorgatto showed {10-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Spades} for trips, winning against {6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}.

d.apollo777's hand wasn't shown.

As STraZer has also busted, the tournament is one eliminated shy of the day's end.

Two KOs for Drinan

Level 31 : 40,000/80,000, 0 ante
Connor Drinan
Connor Drinan

Jonah "RaiseUpBlind" Silverstein opened for pot on the button and called off for 740K total when Connor "blanconegro" Drinan repotted in the big blind.

Drinan: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Silverstein: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

Drinan had slightly the best of it and Silverstein failed to improve on the community cards.

Then, Drinan was the under-the-gun opener calling the shove of "Ticiz" in the small blind for about 671K.

Ticiz: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Drinan: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Hearts}

Drinan paired his six on the {j-Clubs}{j-Spades}{6-Spades} flop and his ten on the {10-Hearts}. Ticiz was left with zero pairs and a bustout on the {3-Hearts} river.

"Liqqa" Doubles Through "STraZer"

Level 31 : 40,000/80,000, 0 ante

Three players saw a coordinated {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{7-Spades} flop for 176K and big blind "STraZer" led for 440,000. Opener "Zuzu.MT" called and "Liqqa" jammed in the cutoff for 965,696. STraZer isolated.

STraZer: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}
Liqqa: {q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{9-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

Nuts versus second-nuts and STraZer had basically no way out. The {5-Clubs} did give a shot with boat outs but the {2-Spades} meant Liqqa still had the nuts.

"KissMyAcePlz" Busted

Level 30 : 35,000/70,000, 0 ante

"chorizo72" opened for 140,000 under the gun and "wnbgambler" potted on the button. "KissMyAcePlz" called for about 177K in the small blind and chorizo72 called as well.

On the {6-Spades}{9-Spades}{k-Clubs}, chorizo72 potted and earned the side pot.

chorizo72: {a-Spades}{5-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
KissMyAcePlz: {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

A pair of sixes was good for the moment for KissMyAcePlz and the {9-Diamonds} didn't change that. The {10-Clubs} did, though.
