On level 30, Khurana posted the small blind of ₹4,500 and Ajay Negi aka ‘ajaynegi688’ posted the big blind of ₹9,000. Khurana was playing with [Q♦ Q♣] and Negi was fighting with [Q♠ K♥].

We quizzed the winner about shipping Gutshot’s exclusive freeroll. Khurana said, “It feels great to win the Gutshot exclusive 10K freeroll on Spartan Poker as this was my first tournament win in online poker.” We also grilled Khurana about his strategy in this freeroll. The freeroll winner said, “My strategy was quite simple. I kept my patience and played calmly throughout. The idea was to play some aggressive poker by building a large stack in the early stages; make good decisions as this was an add-on tournament where extra chips or stack would prove beneficial.”
On tackling his rivals, Khurana said, “I kept the pressure on throughout the gameplay on my opponents. In the final table, when there were only six players left, I became the chip leader. Before the break got over, I was on rank 3/4 and thought that shipping this tourney is not impossible. During the break, I planned on one thing—take a risk of going all-in to double my stack and to fold the worst hands. In the last hand, I went all-in with QQ and my rival called with KQ. There was a possibility of making a flush on the river for him, but that did not happen and I won my first freeroll tournament.”
