Prashob PJ claims SSS Event #24 title
The excitement continues at the virtual felts of The Spartan Poker, where the ongoing Spartan Super Series (SSS) is being hosted between 13-19 August. After a couple of tournaments earlier in the day yesterday, SSS Event #24 INR 2 Lakh GTD kicked off in the evening at 6pm IST.
The freezeout tournament attracted a total of 170 players and the INR 2 lakh prize pool was shared among the top 23 of those players, with a minimum cash of INR 2,320. Coming out on top of this field was Prashob PJ aka 'WalterWhiteJr', who became richer by INR 46,500 last night.
The tournament came to an end in Level #40, with the blinds at 6,300/12,600 - 1,260. WalterWhiteJr had a chip lead of nearly 7:1 against heads-up opponent 'DragGEReR', and it was just a matter of time before the winner could be crowned. Ultimately, DragGEReR walked away with INR 31,500 for finishing second.
In what became the final hand of the tournament, DragGEReR went all-in before seeing the flop, with Qd Tc, and WalterWhiteJr made the call with Ac 5c. The flop then opened 8s 4c 3h and WalterWhiteJr was ahead with High Card, Ace. As on the turn gave him a pair of Aces and the 2s on the river improved that hand to an Ace to Five straight, which was much better than his opponent's High Card, Ace.
He will have his eyes on other tournaments during the day today, with an aim to finish on the SSS Leaderboard, where INR 10 lakh is being given away. 5 more SSS tournaments are scheduled for today and we at GutshotMagazine.com will bring you updates of those events tomorrow, so stay tuned.
