The young grinder shows great results in being a part of a major online poker room. However, he does it playing on the rival poker room. The Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) started on PokerStars on May 12, and Matt tried his hand in the $215 Sunday Million Special Edition (NLHE, 8 max) with a $1 000 000 guarantee.
There were 6 632 entries and the guy managed to reach the final table and beaten almost all his rivals. Matt left the tournament two steps away from winning it. The prize money he got for finishing third is impressive – $92 812. It’s the biggest win in his poker career. This is what he wrote on his Twitter page:

Poker professionals like Jeff Gross, Randy Lew, Joey Ingram, ElkY and usual regulars congratulated the player with such a great score.
