Rachit Parihar ships Sunday SuperStack on Spartan
Every Sunday, Spartan Poker hosts their biggest featured online poker tournament since Sunday is the day that gets maximum participation from players. Sunday SuperStack INR 30 Lakh GTD got a bump in its promised guarantee because of the continuous success of this tournament and yesterday too, we saw a total of 523 entries joining the competition.
Every entry paid the buy-in of INR 5,500 and as the tournament progressed, the top 47 players received cash prizes, each a minimum of INR 17,100. However, there was one player who cashed way bigger than the rest of the competition and that was Rachit Parihar aka 'd9L' who bagged the massive top prize of INR 5,84,700 for his effort.
Parihar has won on Spartan Poker in the past but he would be particularly proud of this victory because it attracts some of the top pros from across the country. Here, he had to outlast them all and Harshad Barve aka 'omglukbox' in heads-up, the latter having also won the IOPC edition of Elite a few weeks back on Spartan. Here, he settled for the runner-up prize of INR 3,71,400.
Some of the know names to finish in the money last night were Arsh Grover (44th), Sandeep Varma (43rd), Gaurav Sood (41st), Rubin Labroo (36th), Anant Purohit (32nd), Zarvan Tumboli (16th), Sajjan Barnwal (15th), Sajal Gupta (9th), Faiz Alam (7th), Ashish Munot (4th), and others. This gives you an idea of the kind of competition on display last night.
The tournament began at 8pm last night and went on for more than 9 hours, eventually ending at 5:18am this morning, when most of us are deep in sleep. Barve shoved pre-flop with As 4s and Parihar made the call with pocket Nines. The board rolled out Kh 7d 8h Qh Qd and Parihar went on to win with Queens and Nines.
