Home / SCOOP / Which poker players have the most SCOOP titles?

There were lots of movers and shakers throughout the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) 2023 — the 15th edition of the prestigious series which ran from May 7 through Thursday, June 1, 2023.

Here you’ll find an up-to-date list of the players who have won the most SCOOP titles throughout their careers.

Last updated: 5 June, 2023

BENNY ‘RUNGODLIKE’ GLASER – 10 TITLES

Glaser is the most decorated COOP player in history

Incredibly, the UK’s Benny “RunGodlike” Glaser has won at least one title in every COOP series dating back to 2018.

Following his incredible performance throughout SCOOP 2023 in which he won three more trophies, Glaser now ties for the top spot with 10 career titles and stands alone as the most decorated COOP player in PokerStars history with 18 wins overall across SCOOP and WCOOP.

What’s remarkable about Glaser is his proficiency across all poker variants and tournament formats. Scan his SCOOP successes below and you’ll find wins in no limit hold’em (he won his first NLHE title in 2023), PLO8, NLO8, HORSE, PLO, 8-game, 2-7 triple draw, fixed limit hold’em, and stud hi/lo.

Glaser also has four World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets, more than any other Briton.

CALVIN ‘CAL42688’ ANDERSON – 10 TITLES

For five years Anderson stood alone at the top spot

We don’t see Calvin “cal42688” Anderson on the PokerStars tables much these days, but the legendary online crusher still boasts a record-tying 10 career titles, his last wins coming in 2018. For five years he stood alone in the top spot on this list.

Anderson, from Yukon, Oklahoma, has focused on live poker in recent years, where he has more than $3 million in cashes. But his impressive SCOOP record demonstrates a striking consistency of results. Aside from 2012, he won at least one title every year from 2010 to 2018.

Note the variation too. Anderson has a title for nearly every type of poker in existence.

ANDERSON’S 10 SCOOP TITLES

2018 – 26H: $1,050 FLO8 (8-Max) – $26,305
2018 – 19H: $2,100 NLHE (6-Max) – $126,659

2010 – 17L: $16.50 Pot Limit Omaha (6-Max, rebuys) – $26,940

ANDRE ‘PREMOVE’ SKVORTSOV – 9 TITLES

By far the most mysterious player on this list, Russia’s Andre “Premove” Skvortsov is the only one we don’t have a photo of. He rarely plays live poker, instead opting to crush online.

And crush he does. Skvortsov — who now plays from Montenegro — was one of only five players in 2023 to win three titles (Glaser being one of them) during SCOOP 2023. He also won two in 2022 and 2021.

Like Glaser and Anderson, his trophies come in a range of poker disciplines, proving he’s one of the best all-around online tournament players out there.

SKVORTSOV’S 9 SCOOP TITLES

2023 — 66-M: $33 NLHE 8-max Weekend Starter – $7,750
2023 — 76-H: $2,100 NLO8 6-max PKO – $61,970*

OLE ‘WIZOWIZO’ SCHEMION – 8 TITLES

Schemion added one more title in 2023

It’s hard to believe that German wunderkind Ole “wizowizo” Schemion is only 30 years old. It feels like he’s been crushing both live and online tournaments forever.

Since 2018, Schemion has captured eight SCOOP victories. He won three in 2022 and added one more in the most recent series: a 5-card PLO title.

He now lives and plays in Austria and is always a threat, particularly in High Rollers where he has an impressive three wins in $10K buy-in events.

Astedt is considered one of the GOATs of online poker

Considered by many to be the greatest online tournament player of all time, Sweden’s Niklas “Lena900” Astedt has amassed an incredible $25.5 million in online cashes — second of all time — and won just about everything there is to win along the way.

Astedt entered the 2023 SCOOP with six titles and added two more, both in Progressive Knockout events (one NLHE, the other NLO8).

He plays all of the games excellently and you’d be a fool to bet against him from winning events in any series.

Two in 2023 for Ashton

The UK’s Matthew “MUSTAFABET” Ashton picked up two shiny new trophies in the 2023 SCOOP series, taking his total tally up to eight. His first came back in 2016.

Ashton is one of the most feared mixed games players, not only online but also in the biggest live cash games in the world.

All of Leknes’ SCOOP titles are in different poker variants

Norwegian mixed games master Tobias “senkel92” Leknes was one of the five hat-trick winners throughout SCOOP 2023. But it could have been so many more as he had multiple runner-up and third-place finishes too.

Leknes also boasts a record-tying 9 WCOOP titles, making him Glaser’s closest competitor on the all-time COOP list. He won three WCOOP titles in 2022 and continued that trend in SCOOP 2023.

His victories across all series come in every form of poker.

Two-time EPT winner Mike Watson has seven SCOOP titles

Despite being a successful poker pro for 15+ years, Mike “SirWatts” Watson always seems like he’s just getting started.

Watson — who took down the EPT Monte Carlo 2023 Main Event to become one of only three people to have two EPT live titles — had seven SCOOP victories heading into the 2023 series, winning three in 2020 alone.

He didn’t manage to add any silverware in 2023 but enjoyed several deep runs, notably finishing third in the $25K Super High Roller.

Watson has always shown tremendous versatility in SCOOP, with seven titles coming from six different variations of poker.

Finnish pro Jussi “calvin7v” Nevanlinna had an epic year in 2021, securing two SCOOP titles to make it seven in total.

You’ll notice that Nevanlinna, like many of the players mentioned here, targets not only Hold’em, but all formats of poker. He also plays at all stakes, with titles in $5.50 games as well as $1K events.

Nevanlinna’s 2021 double was a story in itself – two titles on the same night, in the same event. One in the low-stakes version and one in the high-stakes version of the FLO8.

He’s also got six WCOOP wins.

Leonard captured his seventh trophy by winning the $5,200 Titans PKO for a massive $197. But while Leonard is an NLHE wizard, he’s also an incredible player in every game.

He’s come close to winning the Player of the Series title every year since and in 2023 he picked up two more trophies, one in NL 5-card draw and the other in NLHE.

Ferreira now plays from Brazil and is one of the most accomplished players across all buy-in tiers.
