After a furious finish, Spring Championship of Online Poker 62-H $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, PKO, High Roller] has wrapped up, and a dominating performance by Preben "prebz" Stokkan left no doubt who would be scooping all the monies in the 235-entry field.
Stokkan eliminated six of his final table opponents, including the last five consecutively, to lap the field in prize money by both winning the $101,026 for first and snagging a staggering $174,929 in bounties. Stokkan's aggressive shoving strategy late worked amazingly well because not only did he show up with numerous huge hands, but the times he didn't, he often made winners anyway.
The Norwegian playing from the U.K., who has $2.2 million in live cashes, topped a final table that included Joao "Naza114" Vieira, Conor "1_conor_b_1" Beresford and David "MissOracle" Yan.
