Fedor Holz became a runner-up of the high roller tournament at SCOOP 2021
A major high roller tournament worth $10 300 has taken place as part of the SCOOP 2021 at PokerStars.
The SCOOP-06-H event was expected to have a $1 000 000 guarantee but thanks to 116 entries (including 27 re-entries), it was possible to form a prize pool that exceeded the claimed guarantee by $160 000.
A few eminent poker players made it to the final table of the tournament, including the most successful German player Fedor Holz, who eventually became a runner-up of that event, pocketing an impressive $196 990.
The tournament winner was a poker player from Hungary – Laszlo Bujtas, who earned $254 250 for his victory. This prize money is the biggest tournament win of his career to date.
The fourth place and $118 250 went to one of the most successful online MTT players – the famous Swedish poker pro Simon "C. Darwin2" Mattsson.
