2017 PokerStars SCOOP Day 10: Viktor Blom and Calvin Anderson Hunting


Day 10 of the 2017 SCOOP (PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker) was quite a tame day. Due to issues suffered on the previous day (connection problem), not a single person was crowned on day 10 of the championship.

Notable Players to the Virtual Felt

With no Day 2s to collect a huge cash win, some notable participants took to the virtual felt to progress to stage 2 of the SCOOP-01. A total of 424 participants survived the 2 phase 1 flight for SCOOP-01-L, keeping their hopes of collecting a share of the amazing $1,000,000 for just $11 or even less.

Additionally, there were 2 flights for SCOOP-01-M, raising the buy-in up to $109 and boosting the guaranteed price to $1,500,000. It will be interesting to note that just 139 players took the seats for the second phase including our main man Calvin “Cal42688” Anderson, Ami “uhhMee” Barer, and Christian “eisenhower1” Jeppsson.

The SCOOP-01-H was a monster. The buy-in was set at $1,050 and the guarantee was set at $5,000,000. Here, a million dollar is guaranteed to the winner or the first place.
