Lex Veldhuis

Over 21,500 players entered the SCOOP-L Main Event, with fewer than 6,000 remaining. Players were allowed up to five re-entries in the tournament, with the prize pool broken with over 18 hours left of late registration!

First prize looks set to pay over $200,000, with overnight chip leader “manhhungctn” bagging over 22 starting stacks to lead the field.

Also bagging big? Lex “L. Veldhuis” Veldhuis who sits 162nd in chips with 261,285 in chips. The Dutchman is also still in contention in both the Medium and High buy-in Main Events — which one will he go deepest in?

Colillas Leads SCOOP 115-M $1,050 Main Event

Ramon Colillas

If Veldhuis could manage 162nd in chips, then how about first? That’s where Ramon Colillas finds himself after 17 levels on Day 1 of the SCOOP-M $1,050 Main Event.

Colillas bagged over 1.1 million in chips to lead the 1,254 survivors from a field of 3,674. Late registration is also still available, so there’s still plenty of time to join the field ahead of Day 2. The field includes the likes of Christian “WATnlos” Rudolph, Tom “hitthehole” Middleton and Paul “_pauL€FauL_” Höfer who have all bagged top-50 stacks.

A whole host of PokerStars Ambassadors are still in contention, including Nicholas Walsh, Laurie Tournier, Alejandro “Papo MC” Lococo, Rafael Moraes, Sam Grafton and Marle Spragg.

However, there was less good news for Parker Talbot and Ben Spragg who both fell short of Day 2.
