India Poker Series (IPS 9) Event Roundup

Champ of Champs - YJ Kim

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:-

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.
Here's what the schedule looks like:-

Day 2 - 16th Dec 2011 – 9 pm - Friday Fusion - 10K Re-Buy

This year-ending event will be the final one for the IPS leaderboard so last chance for players to make points in order to win an INR 100,000 sponsorship from the organizers.
