First up was Blom, the highstakes crusher coming out ahead of 121 other entries in the SCOOP-41-H: $2,100 HORSE, $200K GTD tournament, winning $59,780 ahead of England’s Matthew ‘MUSTAFABET’ Ashton.

Next up in the Swedish winner’s circle was Niklas ‘Lena900’ Astedt, a four-time number one in the online MTT standings and currently involved in a $100k prop bet alongside fellow ‘Team Sweden’ highroller Simon "C Darwin2" Mattsson, up against  Patrick ‘pads1161’ Leonard and German crusher ‘bencb789’.

Astedt’s ‘lena900’ online alter-ego took down SCOOP-41-H: $530+R NLHE overpowering a field of 263 other hopefuls to secure the $50,391 first prize having won the SCOOP-25-H for $102,115 on Monday.

Even more impressive than his double SCOOP was Astedt passing the $10million in online MTT cashes, joining a select band of players headed by Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman.

With three days left of the SCOOP series, there’s still time for one or both men to add yet another title to their already impressive resumes, and there’s still the result of that $100k bet to look forward to, Patrick leonard going quiet over the last couple of days which seems to bode well for Astedt’s Team Sweden – the most recent update looking like this…
