Andras "probirs" Nemeth Leads the Final 99 in the SCOOP $1,050 Super Tuesday SE
Day 1 of the SCOOP-72-M: $1,050 NLHE Super Tuesday SE was a huge success with 1,258 entries generating a huge $1,258,000 prize pool to smash the $1,000,000 guarantee slapped onto this event.
Hungarian poker phenom Andras "probirs" Nemeth went on a run during the latter part of the opening day to find himself in a familiar spot with the overnight chip lead with 99 players remaining in the field after ending the day with a stack of 3,978,894.
Nemeth has won three SCOOP titles and is looking to add a fourth tomorrow when the action resumes at 6:05 p.m. BST (1:05 p.m. EDT).
Four other players virtually bagged more than 3 million in chips including Joao "Xungazz" Oliveira, Eder "edercampana" Campana, "M.Flush.N", and Tom "7tHEcROw7" MacDonald.

Rough Day for Team PokerStars
It wasn't the best day for the five PokerStars Ambassadors that entered the Super Tuesday as they combined for 10 bullets and had nothing to show for it.
Fintan "easywithaces" Hand, Ramon "RamonColillas" Colillas, and Ben "Spraggy" Spragg didn't make it until late registration closed while Parker "tonkaaaa" Talbot and Sam "SamSquid" Grafton made past that point but still failed to be among the 159 players to cash for at least $2,268.
Grafton made it the farthest of the bunch and nearly cashed but instead hit the rail when his queens didn't get there against an opponent's rockets.
Action Resumes Tomorrow
The 99 remaining players are each guaranteed a $2,802 payout whether they return or not for tomorrow's action. The event resumes tomorrow at 6:05 p.m. GMT (1:05 p.m. EDT) and will play down to a winner.
Will Andreas "probirs" Nemeth manage to parlay his chip lead into a fourth SCOOP title? Or will it be someone else that ships the bacon?
