The player beat Vivek Rughani aka 'Pokerbatman27' in heads-up. Now we all know how good Rughani is, having recently finished 88th in the 2018 WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas. omgrachelgreen took away the massive top prize of INR 8,43,600, while Rughani won the runners-up prize of INR 5,47,600.
PLO may not be as popular as Texas Holdem, but this tournament surely did well on Spartan, with 148 registered entries to the INR 22,000 buy-in tournament and the guarantee being smashed. The new prize pool of INR 29.6 lakh was shared among the top 12 finishers, with a minimum cash of INR 66,600.
This was one of the highlight tournaments of the SSS series and omgrachelgreen will be extremely delighted with this win. The final hand took place in Level #38, with the blinds at 9,000/18,000 and the player having a lead of nearly 3:1 over Rughani. Finally, the player's Aces and Nines was better than Rughani's Aces and Eights.
omgrachelgreen also made a 7th place finish in the Destiny tournament which was shipped by Anant Purohit. Updated Day 3 SSS Leaderboard:
Gutshot caught up with the winner after this tournament ended. "Winning the PLO Highroller was quite an experience for me, because I don't play much PLO and my game is basically some very basic knowledge and a super aggressive approach which I feel generally works a lot. The tourney itself was very well structured and even short-stacks had a lot of time to pick their spots, so I didn't feel under pressure even when I was 22/22, and once I picked up a big stack I just applied pressure and it worked. I wish I could say more, but I really don't know PLO as well as NL, so I'll just chalk this one up to positive variance."
