The three tournaments that comprise the SCOOP (Spring Championship of Online Poker) 2-day main event on Pokerstars are currently paused, with Day 2 action scheduled to get under way in less than two hours.
All three of the tournaments had strong turnouts and easily surpassed their guarantees. Here are the numbers:
SCOOP: $109 Main Event-L ($1 million Guaranteed) - 19,188 players, $1,918,800 prize pool
SCOOP: $1,050 Main Event-M ($3 million Guaranteed) - 3,675 players, $3,675,000 prize pool
SCOOP: $10,300 Main Event-H ($5 million Guaranteed) - 615 players, $6,150,000 prize pool
"DuckU" is currently leading the $10,300 main event. When Day 1 came to a close, "DuckU" was sitting with around 607k in chips, which is about 70k more than his next closet competitor ("AJinOK").
We have talked about "DuckU" on this site multiple times before, as he has a number of very big online titles under his belt. You would have to think that he will be extremely comfortable on Day 2 of the event, given his chip lead and past victories in large online tournaments.
There are currently 27 players left in this event, including "RaiseOnce", "cpfactor" and "USCphildo".
The winner of this event will walk away with $1.16 million, while the runner-up will take home $851,775.00.
"cashclctor" is currently leading the $1,050 main event. 24 players are still alive in this event, including chip leader "cashclctor", who will take a stack of over 4.5 million chips with him into Day 2.

The winner of this event will take home almost $577k, while the runner-up will receive $430k.
There are currently 17 players left in the $109 main event.
