Spartan regular Wilson Yomso wins the Mega Stack Tournament of this week taking home a paycheck of INR2,67,066. Mega Stack Tournament is one of the most sought after weekly featured online tournaments hosted by the Spartan Poker. The tournament guarantees a prize pool of INR 10 lakh and some of the top poker players across the country make their presence count at the felts.
The Tournament This Week
The tournament welcomed 444 entries this week, crushing guarantees to generate a prize pool of INR13.32 lakh. As a result, 39 places got paid a minimum cash of INR9,190. Many regular faces demonstrated their skill to finish in the money list.
After 6 hours and 12 minutes of gruelling action at the tables, the tournament ended at level number 57. Wilson Yomso playing by the moniker ‘Bikinse’ has displayed his finesse at the Spartan final tables on several occasions. And this time it was no different. In the heads-up round, Yomso clashed with Vinay B aka ‘Minimalist’ who is also a favourite at the Spartan tables.
Both Yomso and Vinay B have been showing spectacular run at several tournaments for some time now. In a Destiny tournament last year, Yomso pocketed a big win. Vinay B, on the other hand, has grabbed plenty of online titles this year in addition to a 4th place finish in the Baby Dragon Event in Macau.
The Final Hand
The final hand took off with the blinds at 30,000/60,000-6,000. Yomso was in the lead with a very narrow margin though of 1.2:1 over Vinay. As the latter raised all-in pre-flop with Jh Ah, Yomso made the call with Qh, Ac. The community cards revealed 9h Qc Kc 6s 2c and pocket Queens on the flop had Yomso take down the Mega Stack title. A handsome pay-check of INR2,67,066 came along. Vinay, finishing runner-up, also made a decent contribution to his bankroll adding an amount of INR1,77,555.
Other Spartan patrons who succeeded in making it in the money included ‘pokerbill’ who finished third bagging over a lakh rupees. The Mega Freeze title winner ‘Stirfry’ finished 10th here.
