The first India Poker Championship (IPC) event of the new year is over and done with and it was Russia's Zopunyan Artem who walked away with top honours winning the 25k Big Game (Main Event). The race for the India Player of the Year (IPOY) continues with the next IPC slated to take place from 01-04 March onboard Casino Royale in Panjim, Goa.
This time's IPC is back to a 4 day event structure with the Main Event being held across 2 days instead od 3. The organisers have decided to revert to their earlier USP of conducting Freezeouts, except for the 12k Headhunters tournament on Sunday night. The structures have been modified a bit to allow for more time and/or chips in the smaller buy-in events.
And here's a look at the schedule for the March event of the IPC:-
|Date||Time||Tournament||Buy-in (INR)||Starting Stack|
|01 Mar||8:30pm||5k Freezeout||5000||5000|
|02 Mar||8:30pm||10k Weekend Kickoff||10000||8500|
|03 Mar||8:30pm||25k Main Event Day 1||25000||15000|
|04 Mar||6:00pm||25k Main Event Day 2||—||—|
|04 Mar||8:30pm||12k Headhunters||12000||6500|
All tournaments are Freezeouts (no re-entry/rebuy) except for the 12k Headhunter.
