'VKarm267' claims SSS Event #21 title on Spartan
A massive prize pool of INR 4+ crore is being guaranteed by The Spartan Poker in their current edition of the Spartan Super Series (SSS). We're more than halfway through the series at the moment with yesterday being SSS Day 4 and a total of six tournaments being played out during the day.
SSS Event #21 INR 5 Lakh GTD was the final tournament of the day and it was a late kick-off, after two big tournaments took place in The Flash and the SSS Super HighRoller. 'robnoxious' claimed The Flash and after an extremely long grind that ended at 7:38am this morning, 'cosco11' shipped the Super HighRoller.
In Event #21, a massive field of 613 entries registered to the INR 990 buy-in tournament, and this took the prize pool up to INR 5,51,700. It was calculated to be shared among the top 45 places with a min-cash of INR 3,034, but the player to walk away with the biggest prize of all was 'VKarm267', who was paid out a prize of INR 1,04,823.
The tournament ended by Level #59, with the blinds at 35,000/70,000 - 7,000, where VKarm267 had a 2:1 chip lead over his heads-up opponent, 'guru'. VKarm267 took advantage of his superior chip stack and eventually won the tournament, with guru having to settle for the runner-up prize of INR 75,859.
In the final hand, both players betted on the flop while guru decided to go all-in on turn, with a pair of Sevens. VKarm267 made the call with Qs Kh and nothing but high-card King. However, he was lucky enough to see a queen open on the river which gave him a pair of Queens, winning him the pot and an SSS title.
