It was an exciting end to the 2010-11 poker season with the crowning of the India Poker Champion, Sameer Rattonsey at the 30k Main Event of the India Poker Championship (IPC). December might have been the end of the calendar year, but it also signals the start of the IPC's new 2011-12 season and their next event will take place from 01-05 February 2012 onboard Casino Royale in Goa's state capital Panaji (Panjim).
The IPC is sticking with its 5 day event structure although they have added a new Highrollers event along with tweaking the schedule of their 25k Big Game which is the Main Event of this edition. The Main Event is a 3-day affair with 2 starting days allowing players who bust from Day 1a another chance of entering the tournament on Day 1b.
There are also two 3k Superturbo tournaments this time allowing the smaller stakes players a value-for-money shot at not only scoring a healthy payday but also playing for a chance to win a seat into the 25k Main Event.
Here's what the schedule for the Feb event of the IPC looks like:-
|Date||Time||Tournament||Buy-in (INR)||Starting Stack|
|01 Feb||9:00pm||6.5k Double Bubble||6500||5000|
