Gokul Raj is final Destiny 10.0 champion on Spartan!

Posted On 22 Aug, 2019 0

Arguably the most popular featured tournament on Spartan Poker, Destiny has grown as a tournament series from its first run a couple of years back to Destiny 10.0 which just crowned it final champion last night. Destiny INR 20 Lakh GTD usually attracts a massive field, but last night was even better than the usual on Spartan!

With a buy-in of INR 5,500, this Wednesday night tournament attracted a huge field of 546 entries yesterday, absolutely smashing the guarantee to create a new prize pool of INR 27.3 Lakh. The tournament kicked off at its usual time of 8pm and as the tournament progressed, the money was distributed among the top 50 players with a min-cash of INR 13,650.

Among those who took away smaller prizes on the night were Dhawal Lachhwani (47th), Sumit Sapra (43rd), Kanishka Samant (34th), recent IOPC Main Event winner Srihari Bang (30th), Bibek Karki (22nd), Apratim Sharma (9th) and Nishant Sharma (6th). After Nishant Sharma got busted, it would've been a relatively easier ride for our eventual winner.

This winner was Gokul Raj who plays under the screen name 'Super Kings' on Spartan Poker and a pro who has taken down many major titles on this platform in recent months. Here however, he was the biggest benefactor of the increased prize pool, taking home a healthy bankroll addition of INR 7,09,800 for first place.

In heads-up, he was up against female player Ashumi Parekh who plays by the name of 'ASH1578'. She has also been a regular on Spartan Poker and won an IOPC event last year too. She won INR 4,36,800 for finishing second while Raj added to his list of online poker titles last night. Next stop is the Destiny 10.0 Finale SnG for him!
