Almost 25,000 players formed combined prize pools of nearly $2,000,000 in the 2010 SCOOP Event 8.

Over 1,100 players entered SCOOP 8 High, a $1050 NLHE event. It took nearly a day to decide the winner, but in the end, poker force BrynKenney came out on top. BrynKenney defeated runner-up gabe2323 when he bet all three streets for value with a pair of kings, queen kicker. gabe2323 raised all-in on the river with a pair of queens, jack kicker and BrynKenney snap called for the victory. BrynKenney accumulated the majority of chips in play by coolering SFisch4 3-handed when he was dealt pocket queens and SFisch4 was dealt pocket tens. There was no deal made at the final table.
