Sam Anand continues red hot run; wins Sunday Stacks
There is no such word as ‘stopping’ in Sam Anand’s dictionary. After winning the 9stacks’ Tuesday Stacks a couple weeks ago, he went on to win the Tuesday Stacks again the following week and a couple days ago on Sunday, he won the biggest 9stacks tournament in a week – Sunday Stacks INR 15 Lakhs GTD.
The tournament began at the usual 8 pm on 9stacks and was in the books by 1.35 am on Monday morning. A total of 174 entries (including 50 re-buys) were made for a buy-in of INR 5,500, which saw some knowns in the mix too. Sam Anand aka ‘Lokimon’ took home the 1st place cash prize of INR 3,30,000 and the title, beating ‘Faceless’ in heads-up.
The latter had to settle for INR 2,10,000 for his runner-up finish. Anand will also be looking to make a hat-trick tonight by winning the Tuesday Stacks again. He is a well-known community player and has shipped many titles previously, all from well-established platforms. He even shipped Spartan Big Daddy back in July 2018, for a package trip to Goa.
With the back-to-back Tuesday Stacks wins on 9stacks and this significant Sunday Stacks win, the player has added some big cashes in a short period of time and will be hoping to convert it into a few bigger wins along his way, as the year progresses.
The tournament on Sunday saw top 27 places being paid and there were a few regs in the mix too. Neel Joshi aka ‘Worm33’ finished 11th in the money for INR 3,750. Rubin Labroo was also playing and finished just before Joshi at 12th for INR 30k. Adda52 Millions winner Sahil Mahboobani aka ‘ImHighIshove’ finished 16th for INR 22.5k.
A couple more regulars were in the mix. Arsh Grover aka ‘BigggTymeR’ finished 25th for INR 18,750 and Anirban Das aka ‘Pokernoob’ finished 26th for INR 18,750 as well. Keep reading GutshotMagazine.com for more similar news and general poker news from around the world.
