TIPS 2020: Garcia wins Spanish Cup; Dewan finished 15th
The Indian Poker Series (TIPS) began its season 3 at King’s Resort in the Czech city of Rozvadov. TIPS which is scheduled between 3-10 February 2020 concluded the final day of the Spanish Cup €50,000 GTD yesterday. And it was Spain’s Miki Vea Garcia who claimed the day pocketing an impressive €12,300 (~INR 9.63 Lakhs) after a 3-way deal.
Yesterday’s turbo pulled out 222 entrants which recorded a total of 874 entries, enough to cross the advertised guarantee and generate a final prize pool of €83,030 (~INR 65.03 Lakhs). Money reached the top 95 places who walked out with a min-cash of €245. Around half of the field consisted of Spanish nationals who also dominated the results list. The top prize money of €15,852 was reduced as the three-remaining players on the final table settled for a deal. Garcia, ahead in chip lead lifted the trophy while El Patron fell in the second position for €11,264 and Bulgaria’s Martin Stoev finished third for €9,060.
The Indian contingent also made a few money finishes in the Spanish Cup, Himanshu Dewan busted in 15th position in flush versus a full house situation securing a payday of €796 (~INR 62,355), prior to him Manish Goenka ended in 71st position and acquired €278 (~INR 21,779), Kanishka Samant in 94th place with €245 (~INR 19,191). Unfortunately, Jaydeep Dawer was unable to finish ITM as he busted quite early in the competition.
