Although Viktor Blom had what many thought was an unbeatable start to PokerStars’ Spring Championship Of Online Poker, Shaun Deeb decided to prove otherwise. Not only did Deeb win his 2nd SCOOP title of the series, but he also final tabled three other events and is fifth after the first day of SCOOP 20-H NLHE with 53 players remaining in the field. This places him easily at the top of both the High Stakes Leaderboard and the Overall Leaderboard, with a staggering 155 points ahead of the closest competitor, ‘joacowalter.’
