The most-prestigious event of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) has kicked off today with the SCOOP-74-H: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max, Main Event] and the initial guarantee has already been surpassed thanks to 401 unique players who purchased an additional 160 re-entries to create a prize pool of $5,610,000 so far.

A very familiar face of the SCOOP series sits atop the leaderboard after 15 levels of 30 minutes each as Calvin "cal42688" Anderson, Mexico-based mixed game specialist from the United States, already had 10 titles under his belt heading into the 2020 edition. A late surge vaulted Anderson into the top spot as he accumulated 2,732,146, some of which came in a pot against Ilya "Leqenden" Anatsky in the final level of the night when the Belorussian was bluffing with queen-high into a jack-high flush.

Second in chips is Canada's "AverageGreg" with 1,963,234 followed by Tomi "elmerixx" Brouk in third with 1,788,170. Other big names in the overnight top 10 are Pavel "MountainRo$e" Veksler (1,767,303), Jack "Swaggersorus" Sinclair (1,663,720), Samuel "€urop€an" Vousden (1,654,576), as well as SCOOP / WCOOP-Champion and three-time Sunday Million champion Artem "veeea" Vezhenkov (1,502,258).

Four former SCOOP Main Event champions made it through Day 1: Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro (769,206) and Mustapha "lasagnaaammm" Kanit (190,895) advanced on their second bullet whereas Talal "raidalot" Shakerchi (524,117) and defending champion Gianluca "Tankanza" Speranza (220,675) required the third and final bullet to bag and tag the virtual chips. In fact, Shakerchi was the first player to bust in the tournament after his bottom end of the straight was no good against a flopped nut straight.

Two of the three PokerStars ambassadors that entered the field on Day 1 advanced. Ben "Spraggy" Spragg (501,088) and Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis (415,834) even started on the same table before parting ways for the remainder of the night. Unfortunately, Fintan "easywithaces" Hand was not as fortunate and was sent to the rail.

A glimpse of the poker talent still in the mix reveals above-average stacks for the likes of Daniel "Oxota" Dvoress (1,418,696), Julien "KroolhearT-1803" Martini (1,273,739), Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz (1,176,195), Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker (1,039,204), Jens "jeans89" Kyllönen (966,190), Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo (947,526), Mikita "fish2013" Badziakouski (883,714), and Niklas "Lena900" Astedt (850,547).

Dozens of notables in the online and live poker circuit have retained their chances at a possible seven-figure payday while some came and left without anything to show for. Mark "AceSpades11" Radoja, Matthias "iambest2" Eibinger, 2019 WSOPE Main Event champion Alexandros "mexican222" Kolonias, Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger, Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos, Henrik "hhecklen" Hecklen, Joao "Naza114" Vieira and Christian "WATnlos" Rudolph" already fired three shells and cannot jump in at the last minute anymore.

While the total field size is not set yet, it will be when the cards get in the air on Monday, May 18th, 2020, as of 1.05 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. All late entries will receive just shy of 21 big blinds in level 16 at blinds of 6,000/12,000 with a running ante of 1,500. The late registration closes five minutes prior at 1 p.m. EST and the payout information will be provided once it becomes available in the PokerStars client.

Day 2 will play down to the final 40 players and five eight-handed tables, and the PokerNews live reporting team will be back then to provide all the action from the tables.

Day 1 Completed

[user38873] • Nível 15: 5,000-10,000, 1,250 ante

All players have finished their final hand and the tournament lobby shows 199 players out of 561 entries remaining. They will return the following day at 1.05 p.m. Eastern Standard Time to play down to the final 40 contenders. Assorted chip counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.

Odeen Busts Late On

[user38873] • Nível 15: 5,000-10,000, 1,250 ante

Jerry "Perrymejsen" Odeen was one of the late re-entries and three-bet jammed for 281,400 out of the small blind. Initial raiser Simon "simon1471" Higgins called and both players tabled an ace with decent kicker.

Jerry "Perrymejsen" Odeen: {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Simon "simon1471" Higgins: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}

The {8-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{k-Hearts} board changed nothing whatsoever and Odeen busted just before the end of Day 1.

Novak No More

[user38873] • Nível 15: 5,000-10,000, 1,250 ante

Among those to fire their third and final bullet in the event without any success were "zas91", Matthias "iambest2" Eibinger and Andrey "Anjeyyy" Novak.

For Novak it was a flip with for just shy of 20 big blinds with the {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and he was called by "Wildace_hun" with the {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. On a board of {a-Spades}{10-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{4-Hearts}, the ace was nog enough as "Wildace_hun" flopped a set and dodged the gutshot.

"Wildace_hun" didn't make it through the same table much longer as he got short and then ran with {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} into the {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} of "cartoon2387". The {j-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{7-Hearts} board changed nothing and that sent the Hungarian to the rail, too.

Anderson Takes the Lead

[user38873] • Nível 15: 5,000-10,000, 1,250 ante

Calvin "cal42688" Anderson min-raised to 20,000 and was called by Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker in the small blind and Ilya "Leqenden" Anatsky in the big blind. The {8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop brought a check-call of Anatsky for 40,000 while Muehloecker got out of the way.

Anatsky then bet the {9-Hearts} turn for 100,000 and Anderson came along to see the {a-Hearts} on the river. Another bet of 250,000 by Anatsky followed and Anderson made the call to claim a big pot with {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for the third nuts, Anatsky had been bluffing with {q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}.

Addamo Caught Bluffing; Higgins Takes From Greben

[user38873] • Nível 15: 5,000-10,000, 1,250 ante

Michael "imluckbox" Addamo defended his big blind against a raise to 22,000 by "serggorelyi7" and they checked the {5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop. Addamo overbet the {a-Spades} turn for 80,000 into 59,000 and picked up a call to then shove the {3-Diamonds} river for 406,486 into a pot of just 219,000.

Addamo was caught with the fingers in the cookie jar as he had a complete airball with {9-Clubs}{6-Hearts}, while "serggorelyi7" tabled {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs} for the nut full house. Addamo re-entered and jumped right back into the same seat.

Another big pot was played right before the break in three-way action to the {6-Clubs}{5-Spades}{5-Hearts} flop, on which Simon "simon1471" Higgins raised to 60,000 and was called only by Job "DeadNylan" Greben. It was then Greben out of the big blind who led the {j-Clubs} turn for 80,000 and Higgins called on the button .

Greben also bet the {3-Clubs} river for 100,000 and called a raise to 280,939 by Higgins, who showed {k-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for trips fives as the winning hand.
