Monday Roundup: Siddharth Bebarta wins ReCharge on Spartan!
After a thunderous Sunday, Monday was relatively slower with less lucrative tournaments on the leading platforms of the country. The biggest guaranteed event was Spartan Poker’s ReCharge promising INR 12 Lakhs in prize pool. Other than that, PokerBaazi’s Bout and Inception on Adda52 did pretty well guaranteeing 10 Lakhs each. Here is a complete summary of Monday majors…
Monday on Spartan Poker is reserved for ReCharge INR 12 Lakhs GTD and yesterday garnered 624 entries with each one paying the INR 2,200 buy-in. This number proved to be enough in order to cross the advertised guarantee and generate a slightly bigger prize pool of INR 12.48 Lakhs. After 7+ hours of an intense grinding session, it was online reg Siddharth Bebarta aka ‘Schrodinger’s Cat’ who defeated ‘honey339’ in heads-up.
The tournament reached level 50, and Bebarta (A♣ T♦) with 6 million chips was up against 'honey339' (9♠ T♠) with 1 million chips in what became the final hand. Pre-flop saw the latter putting his entire stack in the middle to get a call from the former. The board immediately opened 7♦ K♠ 3♦ 8♦ 7♣ and both players drew a pair of Sevens from the board, with Bebarta winning with Ace kicker, and taking away the title of the night eliminating ‘honey339’ in the runner-up position.
