Michigan man wins three MISCOOP titles
The special comes shortly after the completion of the SCOOP series, including the MISCOOP, which wrapped up on April 11.
It was a record-breaking SCOOP for PokerStars, as nearly $6.4 million in prizes were available between Michigan, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including more than $1 million on Main Event Sunday.
A total of 111,863 online poker players participated, with 345 Champions of Online Poker crowned and 90 Spring Championship Trophies awarded.
One Michigan player was responsible for three of those. Jason Welsch of Gowen won a trio of MISCOOP titles on the series’ final day. His winnings totaled more than $5,300.
Welsch told US Poker that he joined PokerStars and began playing with money he had won from fantasy football.
