EPT London 2022: Santhosh Suvarna Finishes 2nd At Mystery Bounty Event


Dubai-based Indian poker pro Santhosh Suvarna has finished second at the ongoing 2022 PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) London £3,000 Platinum Pass Mystery Bounty event. Pavel Plesuv won the game after being reduced to just two big blinds. On the other hand, Suvarna fell just short of claiming the shiny PokerStars trophy despite having the chips on various occasions during heads-up.

The event was a £3,000 (over ₹2,80,000) buy-in event, with a prize pool of £791,076 (₹7,54,18,892). 461 players fought hard across three days, of which only the top 16 had made it to Day 3. Suvarna entered Day 3 with the second shortest stack of just 37 big blinds. However, the Indian player managed to revive himself and enter heads-up as a chip lead against Plesuv. A swingy heads-up led to Plesuv taking away the chip lead from Suvarna multiple times and the latter getting it back. 

In the final hand of the tournament, the Moldovan player raised to 700,000 from the button and Suvarna pushed all in with around 3,600,000 from the big blind. Plesuv snap-called and revealed Dimes. Suvarna with his Kh 6h found a gutshot straight draw on the flop of Ah Jd Tc, although Plesuv had flopped a set, the 9s turn was of no help and the Jc on the river gave Plesuv his full-house and eliminated Suvarna in the second place.

The event also had a PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship (PSPC) Platinum Pass to PSPC January 2023 in Bahamas, awaiting to be claimed in a mystery envelope. However, it was claimed early on by Hannes Jeschka, the first elimination of Day 3. 

Earlier last month, Suvarna became the only Indian player to reach the final table of the prestigious Triton Poker Series. He finished eighth at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Event #5: $75K NLHE 8–Handed event. The Indian player cashed $245,000 (₹2,02,01,965) at this $75,000 buy-in event, which is till date his best live cash.
