Online poker platforms are screaming with high value tournaments attracting prominent names in the industry as well as newcomers. With festivals like WPT, WSOP Online Super Circuit, and of course another prestigious Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) on PokerStars, there’s plenty of options for the enthusiasts! Another day of SCOOP saw two names Dominik Nitsche and Patrick Leonard claiming titles.

Event #87 of SCOOP attracted a field of 956 entries, creating a prize pool of $500K. Dominik Nitsche playing under the username ‘Bounatirou’ outlasted ‘Geokarak’ in heads-up and added $82K in prize money while his opponent settled in the second place for $58K. The champion had never won a SCOOP title until last night. The 29-year old German reigned supreme and added a valuable title to his illustrious poker CV.
