Manash Kumar victorious in Spartan Flash
How did you start playing poker?
I started playing casual house games with friends.
When did you start playing poker for real money?
It's been 3 years mostly casual games with friends.
How was your tournament experience playing The Flash tournament?
My experience was good. I got an early double up which helped me stay ahead in the tourney
Key hands from the tournament?
Tx Jx vs my opponent's Ax Qx when we were the chip leaders. The flop opened Q T J and then a King on the turn got me a complete double up and then just stayed on top right through. Another hand was when I had Kx Jx suited while my opponent had Aces and I lost a big chunk there as I had an open-ended draw on the flop . Of course the final hand of 3-way action where my Ah 5h which defeated my opponent's Fours allowed me to get ahead and then win the title.
Any future plans in poker?
I'm a casual player no serious thoughts right now.
