The headliner event for Day 10 of the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) was the SCOOP-43-H: $25,000 NLHE [8-Max, Super High Roller], where arguably one of the toughest final tables in SCOOP-history was played. Ultimately, Joao “Naza114” Vieira prevailed over his fellow stars to add a SCOOP title and $469,987 to his honors list.
And what a night it would become for the Portuguese superstar, who didn’t stop after the nearly half a mill windfall. Not only did he win the high version of the special Super Tuesday, in the medium version of the same event, Vieira nearly achieved one of the most improbable achievements in SCOOP history by finishing runner-up in the $2,100 version of this event.
Joao “Xungazz” Oliveira ultimately prevented that dream, but Vieira cashed an additional $110,697 to make it a night to remember. Oliveira received $145,456 for his big SCOOP win.
One of the most successful players in PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker history continued his excellent run of results in the series as Joao “Naza114” Vieira took down SCOOP-43-H: $25,000 NLHE [8-Max, Super High Roller], $1.5M Gtd, winning $469,987 in a field of 71 entries.
It’s the fifth title for Vieira in SCOOP and the second year in a row in which he’s snagged a six-figure win in the series. Last year, he won SCOOP 33-M: $1,050 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, Thursday Thrill], $1M Gtd for $186,422. Additionally, he was crowned Player of the Series in 2017.
This time around, he went from a short stack to winner after a topsy-turvy final table that saw some of the shorter stacks make it to the end while some who came in with bigger stacks fell early on.
