Just yesterday we reported that Team PokerStars Pro Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom defeated an 8,240 player field to take down Scoop Event #2-M for $247,200.
The PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) continued today with Event #3 - 6-max NLHE with rebuys. The high buy-in tournament ($530+R) was amazingly won by Viktor Blom.
For his accomplishment, Blom pocketed $160,000. In addition to yesterday's $247,200 score, his 2-day total is $407,200. Not too bad for a couple of days spent playing online poker.
With the SCOOP just 3 days in, Blom's 2 victories make him an enormous frontrunner on the SCOOP leaderboards. He's currently tied for 1st place in the medium leaderboard, tied for 2nd on the high leaderboard, and a far-and-away 1st place on the overall leaderboard.
With 31 3-tiered events left to be played, there's plenty of time left for Blom to make a run at a 3rd victory as well (there's also plenty of time for players like you to get in on the action!). With the way he's playing, we won't be the least bit surprised if he pulls it off.
