SCOOP 2012: Record-breakers, leaderboard winners, and champions - Via @pokerstarsblog | Hit by the deck | Scoop.it

There is no overstating it. The 2012 Spring Championship of Online Poker was simply amazing. It was history's biggest online poker festival. It hosted more players than any PokerStars festival ever. It awarded more money than PokerStars has ever given out in a poker tournament series. Meanwhile, one player stood above them all as the clear and undeniable Player of the Series.

Saw something kind of interesting I’m not sure I’d noticed before while following some of the SCOOP stuff over the weekend. Incidentally, thanks to the turnouts for the final events on Saturday and Sunday, PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker ended up exceeding pretty much all expectations regarding total prize pools to push past the $65 million mark, bettering the 2010 SCOOP and in fact becoming the biggest online poker tournament series ever.

He'll have another, if you don't mind. The three-year old colt that made a late surge to win this afternoon's running of the Preakness has nothing on Shaun Deeb. Sure, I'll Have Another can run 45 mph and has a shot at becoming the first Triple Crown winner in 34 years. But Shaun Deeb isn't one to stop at three titles. He didn't even stop at four.

After 21 rather successful events on the Season 10 World Poker Tour schedule, all eyes focused on the poker tournament scene turned to Las Vegas on Saturday for the historic, iconic, annual celebration of the tour known as the WPT Championship. The $25,500 buy-in is the biggest main event on the schedule, and since the debut of the tour, this one single tournament has been proclaimed by many as the event outside of the WSOP main event whose winner demands immediate respect, recognition and international notoriety for their accomplishment. It often awards one of the largest first-place prizes on the calendar and features one of the toughest fields you'll find anywhere. It's the event a pro wants to win … well, maybe it was … Via Andrew Feldman @ESPN_Poker
