SCOOP: Bryn Kenney and Ami Barer Emerge Victorious, Galfond 2nd in Event #20-H

Phil Galfond runner-up in event #20-High.
Another great score for Ami Barer.

Day 7 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker was a exciting one, with players like Bryn Kenney and Aussie Millions 2014 Main Event winner Ami "UhhMee" Barer taking down titles. Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond on the other hand just missed his first title in event #20-High.

Bryn Kenney won event #21-High ($2,100 buy-in, ZOOM NL Hold'em). A total of  530 players registered for the event and it only took three and a half hours to play down to the winner.

Kenney received $159,556.70 for his second SCOOP title, as he had already won SCOOP NLHE event earlier back in 2010.

2014 Aussie Millions Main Event winner Ami "UhhMe" Barer was also able to win his second SCOOP title during day 7 of the 2014 SCOOP. After 16 hours of playing, Barer won event #19-High ($2,100 NLHE, 6-Max Shootout) and the Aussie Millions champ went to sleep $95,040 richer.

Another event, that took 16 hours to finish, was event #20-High ($2,100 PLO, 6-Max Re-Entry). The event attracted a total of 291 unique entries and 61 re-entries, and saw eventually Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond fight for his first SCOOP title in a epic heads-up battle against "dagunman" from Ireland.

However, it was not meant to be and Galfond had to settle with $107,712, while "dagunman" took down the title and $147,840.
