Glaser was one of 42 participants in the SCOOP 09-H: $ 2,100 HORSE event and helped create a $ 84,000 prize pool. The compact field meant that only the top six finishers won a share of the pie, that is Andres “chokitin” Korn he reached the final table at eight, but still went home empty-handed.
As he did Dzmitry “Colisea” Urbanovichthe former partypoker ambassador was defeated in seventh place and earned the unwanted bubble boy title.
Brazilian feeling Guilherme “guilherme12” Decourt was the first finalist to see how some prizes came to his PokerStars account. Decourt left with $ 4,620. that of Germany “dolmren” and Armenia “FONBET_RULIT” joined Decourt as a spectator, doing so with $ 6,300 and $ 8,400 in prizes, respectively.

The magnificent seven for Glaser

Winning his seventh SCOOP title links Glaser with a bit of poker royalty. Mike “SirWatts” Watson and the Finnish superstar Jussi “calvin7v” Nevanlinna they both have seven SCOOP victories each.
All three of these elite mills have something to catch up on if they want to be known as the most successful SCOOP player in history. Currently, that is Calvin “cal42688” Anderson which is in double digit with ten SCOOP in its name. However, Anderson has not won first place in a SCOOP event since winning event no. 26 in 2018.
It would take a brave or foolish person to bet on Glaser catching and then overtaking Anderson, mostly because Glaser’s recovery has taken him only six years, while Anderson SCOOP’s first win came back in 2010.
