Speaking about the tournament win, ‘BolAuntyAuKya’ said, “I was chip leading throughout the tournament when 15 were left, I tried to keep it that way. I picked up the spots which I thought would go through and kept my focus on the gold. About my key hands or crucial hands; most important were the two flips which I won putting my tournament life at stake. There was a spot where I had Queens vs Ace-King and the next I had Ace-King vs Queens.”
Commenting about TheSpartanPoker, ‘BolAuntyAuKya’ said, “TheSpartanPoker is a good platform and of great value to any tournament player of India and their promotions keep getting better.” Sharing an encouraging message for the upcoming players, “Just sharing my bit to those aspiring players that never stop believing in yourself and failure can never overtake you if our determination to succeed is strong enough. There is no substitute for hard work. People think poker is easy and it’s the best way to make a quick buck, but it never is. Lastly, I’d like to thank all those people again who supported me and wished well for me.”
