Shaun Deeb, Viktor Blom Have Both Won Two SCOOP Bracelets This YearPublished on May 14th, 2012 6:09 am EST
The 2012 SCOOP (Spring Championship of Online Poker) has already produced two multiple bracelet winners despite the fact that the series is only about halfway to completion.
Viktor "Isildur1" Blom got the multiple bracelet party started early on after taking down Event 2-M ($247,200) and Event 3-H ($160,000). Blom, who has achieved a phenomenal amount of success (and exposure, which he helped to parlay into a lucrative "Team Pokerstars Pro" sponsorship deal) in cash games, was able to add a major "live" tournament win (PCA High Roller event) and two major online tournament wins to his resume in 2012, and the year is just 4 1/2 months old.
Shaun Deeb became the second winner of multiple 2012 SCOOP bracelets after taking down Event 19-H (Triple Stud) for $44,200 and Event 10-H (Stud) for $41,000.
Deeb, who was forced to move to Mexico in order to continue his online poker career after "Black Friday", now has three SCOOP bracelets to his credit. In addition to the two bracelets he took down this year, Deeb also took down a SCOOP bracelet in 2010 in the $162 PLO Six-Max Rebuy event.
Many people recognize Shaun Deeb as a hardcore tournament grinder, but these people are also starting to realize just how talented of a poker player Deeb is. Deeb is comfortable playing a number of different games, which will serve him well throughout the course of his career.
