All eyes on Day 10 of the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) were on 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 was for the Portuguese superstar. 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 amazing accomplishment.
If that wasn’t enough, Vieira also is 2/9 in chips when SCOOP-48-H: $5,200 NLHE [Midweek Freeze] will play down to a winner on Thursday, with $157K up for grabs for the overall winner of that event.
While the spotlight was on Vieira for most of the night, and rightfully so, there’s plenty more to talk about from Day 10 on the SCOOP 2021 including Chris “Moorman1” Moorman‘s first-ever SCOOP win. As unlikely as it may sound, one of the biggest online winners of all time had yet to cross this one off his list, but finally did so in SCOOP-45-H: $1,050 NLHE [6-Max] to win $78,539.

Joao “Naza114” Vieira Wins SCOOP-43-H: $25,000 NLHE [8-Max, Super High Roller], $1.5M Gtd ($469,987)
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.

SCOOP 2021 Day 10 Results
Apart from Vieira, plenty of other winners were crowned on Wednesday including online powerhouse Chris “Moorman1” Moorman. Perhaps surprisingly, a SCOOP victory has eluded the Brit until last night, where he got the proverbial monkey off his back by winning SCOOP-45-H: $1,050 NLHE [6-Max] for $78,539.
Moorman defeated Anton “Bomber&Granater” Wigg heads-up, with the latter taking home $56,391 for his efforts. Chris “ImDaNuts” Oliver, Pablo “pabritz” Brito, Sung Joo “Koreanmonkey” Hyun, and Bruno “great dant” Volkmann also made the final table in this event.
Joao “Xungazz” Oliveira (Croatia) reigned supreme in SCOOP-43-M: $2,100 NLHE [Super Tuesday SE] where he topped a field of 402 hopefuls, banking himself a massive $145,456 payday for the two-day effort. As mentioned earlier, Oliveira beat out Vieira for the title. Volkmann, who was also on Moorman’s final table, finished third for $84,243 and had a massive night of his own as well. Artur “marathur1” Martirosian and “Sintoras” also took a seat at this FT.
