SCOOP success for BBZ coaches ‘Pwndidi’ and ‘Senkel92’

SCOOP success for BBZ coaches ‘Pwndidi’ and ‘Senkel92’

What a week it’s been for Team BBZ in the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) on PokerStars.

Multiple BBZ coaches and Bundle creators have captured titles, while others have come incredibly – excruciatingly – close.

Here’s a recap of the week so far.


Alex “Pwndidi” Theologis captured the third SCOOP title of his illustrious career on May 15, taking down the $530 buy-in Sunday Kickoff for $52,676, following a heads-up deal with “Denman98”.

The tournament received 726 total entries, building a prize pool of $363,000.

Theologis has now won three titles in four years!

Not that’s he bothered about having a cabinet full of silverware.

“Winning trophies and things, I don’t really care about that,” he told us. “It’s a welcome addition, sure, but it’s not something I concern myself with.”

Read our full interview with Theologis here.

Pwndidi’s SCOOP titles:

  • 2020: $1,050 NLHE, Afternoon Deep Stack – $85,430
  • 2021: $530 NLHE 8-Max, PKO – $100,686
  • 2023: $530 Sunday Kickoff – $52,676

We all knew Tobias “Senkel92” Leknes was an absolute behemoth in poker’s mixed games.

It’s why he had four SCOOPs and nine WCOOPs heading into the series. And it’s why Mason “pyefacepoker” Pye teamed up with him to create the Mixed Games Beginner’s Bundle for BBZ Poker.

But Leknes has somehow managed to surpass lofty expectations once again, winning two more titles over the past week.

Leknes first took down a $1,050 5-Card Draw 6-Max PKO for $13,702, then won a $2,100 2-7 Triple Draw tournament for $31,500.

Since then he’s come agonisingly close to winning a third, too. Just last night (May 18) he finished runner-up to Matthew “MUSTAFABET” Ashton in the $1,050 Razz.

If he keeps this up, Leknes is bound to win his 2023 hat trick sooner or later.

Mixed Games Beginner's Bundle

Learn the little known secrets to mixed game success.



It was just last week that we told you how Lex Veldhuis narrowly missed out on his maiden SCOOP title, finishing second in the $3K High Roller for $72,185.

But since then, he’s had a third-place finish AND another runner-up.

Lex finished third in a $3K SCOOP side event:

Then, on the complete opposite end of the buy-in spectrum, he battled his way through more than 4,000 players to reach heads-up in the $5.50 6+.

Alas, it wasn’t to be.

Keep your chin up, Lex.

It’s only a matter of time.
