Akshay Kapoor takes down SSS Electra on Spartan

by GS Admin Posted on 11 Oct, 2018

Yesterday was the third day of play at the Spartan Super Series (SSS) on The Spartan Poker. A total of five events were scheduled for the day and the first was none other than the Electra tournament, one with a buy-in of INR 800 and a guaranteed prize pool of INR 2.5 lakh.

SSS Event #11 Electra INR 2.5 Lakh GTD kicked off in the afternoon and the guarantee was passed thanks to the 396 entries that registered to the tournament, increasing the prize pool to INR 2,89,080. This was then shared among the top 27 finishers, taking away a minimum of INR 2,602 each.

Eventually, the player to come out on top of the field was Akshay Capoor aka ‘TheShowdown’, who took home a pay-check of INR 63,598. He beat another good player Suraj Rathi aka ‘Bugsbunny08’ in heads-up, who settled for INR 43,073 for finishing second. While Capoor is a relatively new winner, Rathi recently took down the Big Daddy tournament on Spartan.

Gutshot caught up with the 27-year old Capoor after this victory. The Lucknow based player is a B.Tech in Petroleum Engineering, currently working in Accenture Bangalore. He told us that his poker journey started with school friends around 8 years ago. He has been playing poker tournaments on The Spartan Poker for around 2 years now.

Talking about last night’s tournament, Capoor said, “The journey through the event was with a lot of ups and downs. In heads-up action with the blinds at 15.5k-31k, I was left with 4.5bb and the opponent holding 80bb stack which in a matter of 33 hands was shipped by ‘TheShowdown’.

Talking about his future in poker, Capoor said, “I want to keep learning and playing better poker with every passing day.” Keep reading GutshotMagazine.com for more updates on the top Indian poker tournaments and series.
