The first tournament of IOPC Day 4 on The Spartan Poker was won by popular poker player Loveleen Singh aka ‘sridevi123’. That tournament was followed by IOPC Event #18 INR 1.75 Lac GTD (770 FO), which was a freezeout tournament that began at 4pm IST yesterday.
268 entries registered to this afternoon tournament and the guarantee was beaten, with a new prize pool of INR 1,87,600 being created and this was the lowest guarantee tournament so far in this cash-rich tournament that has over INR 7 crore in guaranteed prizes. The prize pool allowed the top 39 players to be paid out a minimum cash of INR 1,294.
The freezeout tournament ended with ‘pratik4pp’ outlasting these 268 players and walking away with a pay-check of INR 37,614 for top place. He beat ‘karizmaticka’ in the heads-up battle, who also went home much richer, bagging INR 25,007 for finishing second in this tournament.
The tournament was over in Level #42, with the blinds running at 16,000/32,000 – 4,000. They were neck to neck in chips just before the tournament came to an end. pratik4pp had 1,788,520 in chips and karizmaticka had 1,561,480 in chips before what became the final hand.
pratik4pp held Q-10 and karizmaticka held 6-7 as the flop opened 2-10-6, with the former hitting a pair of tens immediately. The turn then opened 10 and pratik4pp went all-in having completed three of a kind Tens. karizmaticka made a surprising call and as the river card opened 4, the player lost with two pairs – Tens and Sixes.
