SCOOP event 21-L can easily be cataloged as a who’s who in online HU play. 1550 of the very best players online duked it out in this HU shootout tournament. The field was large, but this was definitely not an indication of an easy ride for tough players within. Instead, wherever they turned there was another tough player licking his/her chops for a chance at decapitating (poker-wise) the opponent, executioner style.

Every single player in this event had some sort of accolades to show for; there were almost no fish at all in such a huge turnout, which is pretty much unprecedented.

Among the more recognized names that had deep runs we have PokerStars Pro JC Alvarado (209), All_in_at420 (212), Chris ‘Moorman1′ Moorman (175), Jon ‘Pearljammer’ Turner (154), ftr’s own ‘DaPokerGun’ (145), 4pils&1pizza 먹튀검증 (117, you will see this name later too) and Chancew (29).

Detailed coverage continues from the 8th spot onward.

HU: The stage was set for the final table. Of the huge 1500-strong field, only two gladiators remained. Because this was a shootout event, both players would start out the final table with exactly the same amount of chips, so it was basically all for grabs. The players briefly discussed a chop, but no agreement was reached and both players therefore simply went for the win.

The match lasted for approximately 25 minutes, and then this gem happened:
