2010 SCOOP Player of the Series, George Lind

by Poker Team

Making the money in a poker tournament, be it online or live is a strong accomplishment. Outlasting a large field of players takes the right mix of luck and skill. When the player pool consists of some of the best and brightest the poker world has to offer, this makes it an even more impressive achievement. For team PokerStars pro, George Lind to do what he did at the recently completed Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), is one of the more incredible feats in recent poker tournament history.

What did Lind do exactly? Well, the American player who goes by the handle “Jorj95” was named 2010’s SCOOP Player of the Year. He accomplished this by cashing in an astounding 27 events during the course of the two week tournament bonanza. Yes, you read that correctly. Lind cashed in 27 out of the 38 events offered by the world’s largest online poker site. His winnings over the series was $105,127.12, which undoubtedly will do wonders for his ROI stats.

In addition to the instant notoriety he receives with his impressive showing, Lind also will be the recipient of several perks courtesy of PokerStars. He will receive the coveted Player of the Series trophy, a free entry into the 2010 WCOOP Main Event valued at $10,000, an entry into the 2010 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and 2011 EPT Grand Final, and a Special Edition PokerStars chip set.

Naturally, someone else will win the prestigious title next year. Whomever it is, will be hard pressed to duplicate Lind’s gargantuan effort this year.
