Chapter 9 of the India Poker Series was the followup tournament to the Asian Poker Tour's inaugural Goa series and as expected by the organizers, there was a slight dip in the usual number due to the week long APT. However there was action aplenty for those players who did make it.
There were a total of 5 tournaments held at IPS 9 from 17 - 20 November 2011 at the Casino Royale card room. The organizers who had adopted an earlier start time for their previous 2 events had now reverted to an evening start time to accommodate player requests.
Here a quick summary of the results from IPS 9:-
|17 Nov||7.5K Re-Entry with Entry to Main Event||7500||50||Anastasia Murzina|
|18 Nov||5K Re-Buy||5000||52||Vaneet Grewal|
|19 Nov||25K Champ of Champs Main Event||25000||42||YJ Kim|
|20 Nov||10k Re-Entry||10000||30||Anto Pereira|

The next event planned by the IPS is a highrollers event which will be hosted in conjunction with the India Poker Pros. There are only 3 featured tournaments over a 4 day period with higher than usual buy-ins.
