Lefrancois Assumes Control Early On
The final table started with a bang when Pavel silentm0de" Plesuv doubled through Andrey "Anjeyyy" Novak with aces versus tens and it would be the start of the misery for Novak. Pascal "Pass_72" Lefrancois took over the lead after 15 minutes and pulled further ahead when his ace-high flush draw got there to crack the turned set of tens of Silvio "silskyer" Costa. In the blink of an eye, they were down to seven as Artem "veeea" Vezhenkov failed to get there with ace-deuce suited against the pocket sevens of Will "hellzito" Arruda.
"temka99" bowed out in 7th when they got it in with aces against the eights of Novak who flopped a set. However, Novak was the next player to go. After bet-folding a huge chunk of his stack to a jam of Lefrancois, Novak sent the remainder of his short stack to the French-Canadian shortly after.
Timothy "Tim0thee" Adams was the next victim of Lefrancois when he three-bet tens and called the shove of Lefrancois to get shown ace-nine. Lefrancois flopped a gutshot, turned a straight and rivered a flush to take a commanding lead with more chips at his disposal than all remaining contenders had combined.
Almost an hour passed and Plesuv eventually got short. He picked up kings and three-bet for most of his stack, Lefrancois jammed with ace-ten and Plesuv called. If any all-in showdown summarized the run of Lefrancois, it was this one as he rivered a flush and the same card gave Plesuv only a set.
Roller Coaster Final Stage
Down to the final three players, Arruda and Karlsson put up a fight and doubled through each other and through Lefrancois multiple times. After Arruda had gotten short once more, Lefrancois called his jam and bowed out to the reshove of Karlsson. Ace-jack for Arruda was not enough as Karlsson prevailed with ace-king to enter heads-up just two big blinds shy of Lefrancois.
The three-bet pots kept on coming and Karlsson even took over the lead for a mere two hands, but Lefrancois was back in the driver's seat soon enough. It took around 45 minutes of heads-up action to crown a champion when Lefrancois three-bet preflop, then bet all streets on a paired king-high board. Karlsson could not find a fold on the river after depleting his time bank and his aces were no good as Lefrancois had flopped trips kings.
That wrap's up the PokerNews reporting for this event and the extended SCOOP schedule is on the home stretch. Several other tournaments are still running, however, and the live updates will be provided until the end of the festival on June 1st, 2020.
The 3 things SCOOP winners do well (and how you can start doing them too)
The great Phil Galfond once said: “The biggest misconception in poker is that poker is its own innate skill, like saying ‘I’m good at dancing’.”
In other words, good players aren’t simply “good at poker”. There isn’t one thing that great poker players all do well.
The truth is that the best poker players possess a vast array of skills and traits which have led them to success. So when family members at the dinner table ask you “what makes a good poker player?” it can be tricky to pin down an answer without listing more than 20 different attributes.
Instead, we’re going to focus on what online tournament winners do well in order to achieve their success in the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) 2020.
Thankfully, a bunch of SCOOP champs were on hand to help us find out.
