Manuel “BigFudge95” Fritz Wins the SCOOP 85-H: $1,050 PKO Thursday Thrill Final Table Results

After more than eight hours on Day 2 of the PokerStars 2020 SCOOP 85-H: $1,050 PKO Thursday Thrill Special Edition, one player came out victorious out of 1,047 entries. Manuel “BigFudge95” Fritz from Austria defeated “xMOOMOx” heads-up for $73,597 and $63,900 in for a combined total of $137,497 which is the lionshare of the $1,047,000 prize pool which was created by all those entries on Day 1.

This score easily beats the previously biggest online score Fritz earned in a four-way deal he did back in April for $116,384 in the Sunday Million. The 2020 Platinum Pass winner didn’t win that tournament as he finished in second but the assumption is that he is a lot happier with this result as it is a new personal best and comes with a pretty SCOOP title. Fritz was joined on the final table by “G A W”, Jamie “Ship It 2010” O’Connor, Evan “PURPLE”K”99” Parkes, Peter “pitaoufmg” Patrício, Victor “VICTOR TXR1” Teixeira, Rui “sousinha23” Sousa, and “Cramos88” besides “xMOOMOx” off course.
