SVS Event #11 INR 30k GTD

Topping the field was 'Ultra Nationalist' and he bagged the biggest prize of INR 8,473 in this tournament which is a decent amount for those starting out in poker. He shoved with A3 in the final hand and got a call from 'ZORIN5' who had QT. The board ran dry, Ultra Nationalist won with A-high and the runner-up won INR 5,725 in prize money, playing from the FTRpoker platform.

As for the runner-up, it was 'RENPEN' who lost in heads-up, taking home INR 7,120 for his finish. Pairing an Ace on the flop of the final hand was enough for zackhardy to win the pot and emerge champion here!
SVS Event #14 Prime Time INR 1.5 Lakh GTD
INR 550 was what each entry paid up to play in the Prime Time tournament which has become a daily feature in this SVS series on Spartan Poker. 253 entries registered last evening and from them, the top 23 players received payouts of a minimum of INR 1,740 each. 'TrainedToShip' was good on the night and was well rewarded for it as well, winning the tournament and adding INR 34,875 to his poker bankroll. In heads-up, he got past 'Novus' after making the PFAI call with As4s and completing an Ace-high flush on the board in the final hand. Novus had to settle for INR 23,625 for second place.
SVS Event #15 Hi-Fi INR 4 Lakh GTD
Again, this was been a regular feature of the SVS series so far. Hi-Fi has been the final tournament on each day so far and here, 532 entries each paid the entry fee of INR 1,100 to take the prize pool all the way up to INR 5.32 Lakh. Arjun Agrawal aka 'SirMucksAlot' is a regular on Spartan Poker and he outlasted the complete field to bag the top prize of INR 1,01,080. Agrawal beat 'InMyShadow' in heads-up and the latter ended up settling for INR 73,150 for his runner-up finish.
