Who Is Santosh Suvarna? The Player Who Made A Splash At Triton Poker Series


The poker community in India is filled with many prominent names that have taken the game to another level. Among these are pro players like Abhinav Iyer, Nikita Luther, Kunal Patni, Aditya Agarwal, and Aditya Sushant, along with countless others who have represented India on the international stage. Recently, Indian player Santosh Suvarna made headlines when he reached the final table of the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Event #5: $75K NLHE 8–Handed and finished in 8th place.

Now, Suvarna may not have shipped the event, but even getting to 8th place in a $75,000 buy-in Triton Poker series is not a small feat. The Triton Poker Super High Roller series is one of the most popular high-stakes events in the world, with many of the top pro poker players in the world grinding in the live poker series. While being among the small pool of Indian players at the series, Survarna’s success cannot be ignored.

Who is Santosh Suvarna?

Santosh Suvarna is a Dubai-based Indian entrepreneur and a former Rockets Poker Room (Bengaluru) operator. He is currently in Cyprus for the Coin Rivet Invitational and is a well-known figure in the poker operators’ circuit in India. Earlier this year, Suvarna partnered with poker veteran Vikram Kumar to begin operations in the Cadillac Casino located at DoubleTree by Hilton in Goa.

In the past, Suvarna has played live poker events in India. In April 2017, he played at the Deltin Poker Tournament in Goa and finished 7th in the No-Limit Hold’em High Roller for $6,973. He also finished in 6th place for $8,839 at the Baazi Poker Tour No-Limit High Roller in January 2020.

The Incredible Feat

The ongoing Triton Poker Super High Roller Series hosted Event #5: $75K NLHE 8–Handed which welcomed a total of 88 entries. The $75,000 buy-in event was brimming with action and as the game progressed, players started exiting the table one by one. Soon the money bubble was reached after Sean Perry was eliminated in 14th place.

The final table was set with eight players making it. Leading the final eight was Seth Davies with a stack of 3,580,000 chips and India’s Santosh Suvarna had the shortest stack of 785,000 chips. At this point, Suvarna had battled through a field of 79 runners and was playing for the prestigious title. Now on the final table, Suvarna had his friends and family railing him on. However, the high-stakes pro saw his deep run come to an end after his A 8 was defeated by K Q .

Despite his early exit from the final table, the support of his rail continued. He walked away with a career-best of $245,000 (~₹1.95 Crore) in eighth place. Previously, Suvarna had only played live poker in India, so this is a huge step up from his previous endeavours.

On His Deep Run

Commenting on his success, Suvarna told PokerGuru, “It’s really a great and an amazing experience playing with top poker players and super high rollers. I am really enjoying high roller poker tournaments here and along the way, made all very good friends with people around the world.” (sic)

Suvarna also invited seasoned pro and Triton Poker title holder Patrik Antonius to play in the Coin Rivet Invitational. The $200,000 Coin Rivet Invitational is an event held in the Triton Super High Roller Series, which pits high-stakes poker pros against high-rolling VIP businesspeople. Each VIP is allowed to invite one poker pro to play in the tournament. However, out of the 90 entries in the tournament, only 17 players made the money, and unfortunately, neither of the two players finished ITM.

However, we can expect to see more of Suvarna in upcoming high-stakes poker events. With his notable success at Triton Poker Super High Roller series, many will be on the lookout for more incredible results from Suvarna.
