The Indian poker industry is all hooked onto one major series at this point of time, launched by PokerStars India a couple of days ago. The India Summer Championship of Online Poker (INSCOOP) has a total of 92 tournaments scheduled to go with a total series guarantee of INR 4+ Crore. On Day 1, Rajat Sharma bagged top honours with his Battle Royale victory.
Yesterday was Day 2 of the series and while there were a number of side events, there was also one featured tournament called INSCOOP #10: Super Tuesday Special Edition which was the highlight of the day on PokerStars. The winner of this event turned out to be Rachit Parihar who plays as ‘hack_R27’ on Stars.
With a buy-in of INR 3,300, a total field of 373 entries took part last night and from these, the top 71 received pay-checks with the minimum prize given out being INR 5,286. As for Parihar, he powered his way through the entire field, bagging nothing less than the top prize of INR 2,07,554!
No doubt, it would’ve been a tough journey having to beat quite a few known names including Utsav Taneja (9th), Parikshit Dhall (7th), Shravan Chhabria (5th), Ankit Wadhawan (4th) and others. In heads-up, he outlasted ‘k1369’, a player who fired as many as 6 bullets to reach the eventual runner-up spot. For this victory, Parihar bagged the top prize while k1369 won INR 1,47,444 for finishing second.
Talking about the tournament, Parihar told Gutshot, “I was feeling confident when the Final Table arrived. I had a good chip lead and experience along with that. Last month, I shipped Sunday Stars PKO, so I knew the FT dynamics. Finally shipping a big tournament this month has boosted my confidence. I also made it to Day 2 of INSCOOP ME with a decent stack. Looking forward to make it big there as well.”
