It was the Thursday flagship tourney on Spartan Poker SSS #54 Ultron INR 35 Lakhs GTD which stopped mid-way on 16 April and resumed yesterday at 8 pm. Topping a field of 879 entries was Siddartha Khandelwal aka ‘siddyk20’ who took down the tournament adding the winner’s title while his opponent ‘kabira speaking’ secured the second place payout. After cashing a number of events so far, undoubtedly, Khandelwal was thrilled to ship his first feature.
Gutshot caught up with the latest champion who expressed, “It feels great, no doubt about it! I usually grind at the lower stakes and have shipped a few of those. But this is my first feature tournament win and it is a completely different feeling,” he further added, “I’ve been playing MTTs for a year now and recently shifted to higher stake after I did a few courses like Upswings Winning poker tournaments and Bencb’s masterclass. Also, a lot of the credit of this win goes to Ankit Jajodia who has taught me everything I know about poker today.”
“At the final table, when 5 people were remaining, I rejected the deal twice as I was in a serious mood of shipping it outright. Eventually, I decided to take the deal as I was getting more than just 2nd place and it made sense given the variance the final table has.”
