Near Miss for Veldhuis in SCOOP 31-H: $1,050 NLHE [6-Max, Turbo, Mystery Bounty]

The SCOOP saga continued with Lex Veldhuis securing a commendable third-place finish in the SCOOP 31-H: $1,050 NLHE 6-Max Mystery Bounty, falling just short of clinching the title against the formidable Niklas "Lena900" Astedt and the eventual winner "aminolast" who pocketed $68,427.

PokerStars Ambassadors proved their mettle once again in SCOOP 24-H, with Fintan "easywithaces" Hand and Ben "Spraggy" Spragg making significant strides. The duo led the chip count at one stage, stirring excitement for a potential showdown. Although Hand exited before the final table, Spraggy secured a sixth-place finish. The event was ultimately won by "aferrao147" from Brazil, denying Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos another SCOOP victory this year.

As the SCOOP takes a brief pause, the spotlight turns to Fintan Hand, who, after his notable performance in SCOOP 24-H, is set to continue his quest for glory in SCOOP 28-M: $215 NLHE [Progressive KO, Thursday Thrill]. Alongside PokerNews Ambassador Lukas Robinson, both players are well-positioned to make significant impacts with 107 contenders remaining.
