Over the weekend, pandemic poker series were in full swing. 2-time WSOP bracelet winner, Elio Fox, won a 25K WPT Online Super High Roller for $565K and outlasted a tough final table that also included Tim Adams and Chris Hunichen. British pro Charlie Carrel, who won the 2017 SCOOP Main Event, binked his third SCOOP title with a victory in Event #70 Hight $530 NLHE PKO. Meanwhile over at GGPoker, a player under the screenname '800-522-4700' faded a field of 505 hopefuls to ship the WSOP Super Circuit $25K High Roller Championship for nearly $2.2 million and a coveted WSOP Circuit ring.

Three online sites and three big scores went down over the last couple of days. Of course, GGPoker hosted the biggest and richest high roller during their special online series in conjunction with the WSOP. Known as the WSOP Super Circuit, GGPoker has been hosting tournaments (with 18 bona fide WSOP Circuit rings to the winner).

800-522-4700, a player holed up in Costa Rica, outlasted a treacherous field on GGPoker to take down the WSOP Super Circuit High Roller Championship. The $25K buy-in event had 505 players that created a prize pool worth over $12 million. According to PocketFives, the 25K High Roller Championship clocked in as the fifth richest online tournament in history behind PokerStars Sunday Million anniversary events (2010 and 2014), and the last two installments of the partypoker's MILLIONS (2018 and 2019).

The final nine in the 25K High Roller Championship included Sub_Zero, gaufreancienne, AlwaysWithNuts, mm1993, M0therLover, BlackPhillip, HotPot44, Babu$hka, and 800-522-4700. Patrick Leonard made the final table playing under Babu$hka.

The final three spots earned a seven-figure payout. HotPot44 busted in third place, but still banked $1.18 million. Not too shabby, eh?

Leonard lost heads-up to 800-522-4700. For a second place finished Leonard aka Babu$hka earned $1.6 million for a runner-up's share. Sweet, sick, but so close.

When the virtual dust settled, 800-522-4700 won the GGPoker WSOP Super Circuit $25K High Roller Championship for nearly $2.2 million and a coveted WSOP Circuit ring.

The 2020 SCOOP is still running on PokerStars and if you haven't been paying attention, the folks at PokerStars HQ decided to extend SCOOP until the end of May. Why? Since everyone is still in quarantine and hunkered down, why not give online poker players more chances to ship a SCOOP crown?

Charlie 'Epiphany77' Carrel is one of those players that got a huge profile boost when he shipped the SCOOP Main Event three years ago. At the 2017 SCOOP, Carrel emerged as a double winner with a PLO title and the Main Event crown (which paid out $1.2 million).

It took a couple more years, but Carrel finally won his third SCOOP title to add to his growing collection of tournament victories.

Carrel outlasted everyone in SCOOP Event #70 Hight $530 NLHE PKO and picked off Owain 'sngwonder' Carey heads-up to win the title. Carey was seeking his second SCOOP title this spring, but got stopped dead in his tracks in second place. Carrel banked $111,380 for the victory plus nearly $44K in PKO bounties.

Last Friday, WPT Online Event #32 played down to a champion. The $25K Super High Roller had a $2 million guaranteed prize pool. A total of 87 players took a shot and the prize pool ballooned to $2.1 million.

The final table of eight included Elio Fox, Juan Pardo Dominguez, Pauli Ayras, Samuel Vousden, Mark Davis, Tim Adams, Chris Hunichen, and Andrii Novak.

Fox defeated Juan Pardo Dominguez heads up to win the title. JPD banked $402K for a runner-up finish. Fox, an American online poker exile, earned a first-place payday worth $565,500.
