’24beez’ Wins The Mega Stack Title With The Biggest Prize Money Of SSS Day 2 At Event #9

Every Tuesday evenings, the daily featured tournament Mega Stack is organized at Spartan. The tournament typically comes with a guaranteed prize pool of 10 Lakhs. However, for the current Spartan Super Series (SSS), this guaranteed amount is increased by 50%, reaching to INR 15 Lakhs. The SSS Event #9 on Day 2 lasted for 7 hours and finally, ’24beez’ was announced as the winner. He bagged the biggest prize money of the Day 2 action.

Many poker fans may wonder why the prize money is the biggest; the reason is the prize pool prevailed the hiked guarantee amount. Total 308 participants put together INR 18 Lakhs in this tournament that presented a buy-in of INR 4,400. Out of them, 39 players would be rewarded with min-cash of INR 12,420.

The names of popular pros who cashed out from the tournament are Kanishka ‘Wildflower’ Samant (exited at the 25th place) and Chiraag Patel (IOPC title winner from July’s edition). There were several deep runs for Team India, but Patel outlasted the participating players and won his first international title at the APPT in Manila, recently.

The field transformed into the final table and from that to heads-up, due to this, it was down to 24beez and ‘U_R_MY_BANK’ contending for this tournament title and also for the biggest amount of the prize pool. The winner continued the lead with 5.7 million chips while that of U_R_MY_BANK was 3.9 million. The corresponding lead instantly flipped in support of U_R_MY_BANK, a few hands before the heads-up.

This was when a gigantic 2.3 million pot reached U_R_MY_BANK while he mounted an all-in move during his turn and the same was folded by 24beez. It’s not much time that the lead lasted long because, after a few hands, these two players hit two pairs. However, as the game unfolded, the hands of 24beez were the better out of the two and he bagged a pot valued 4.8 million chips. This was essentially not the last phase of the swing fest.

It was revealed that the heads-up play continued for over 50 hands and there were different pots with value in the range of 1 to 2 million. These pots were dealt between the two challengers. Many hands came into the favor of 24beez’s and when the final hand took place, he completed with more than 7 million chips as compared to 1.2 million chips of U_R_MY_BANK. The latter with Jh Th moved all his chips into the pot and 24beez who held an enormous lead made the call with Td 7d. The river was in favor of 24beez on a board of 5s 4d 9s 9c 7c and through the help of his two pairs of Nines and Sevens, the tournament declared him as a winner with a prize money of INR 3,60,900 and the title of SSS Mega Stack. Eventually, U_R_MY_BANK was declared as the runner-up and won a prize money of INR 2,39,940.

The occasion of winning the biggest prize money of SSS Day 2 will support ’24beez’ in his future poker endeavors!

Cooking dinner has always been something that takes a lot of time out of my busy and crazy schedule. Cooking can be time consuming and if you are like me and hate it; would rather be playing online poker, then it is horrible. I have 6 people to organise dinner for every day and thought I would write up some quick meals for poker moms to dish up through the week and on weekends which take little to no time and are crowd pleasers.

This recipe is a simple yet delicious CHICKEN ROAST! Sound complicated? Time consuming? Think again! A roast dinner is by far the quickest meal to prepare and dish up.


  • Chicken / Pork / Beef/ Lamb roast (one of these)
  • Potatoes
  • Pumpkin
  • Carrots
  • Frozen Beans / Peas
  • Frozen Corn Cobs
  • 2 Onions
  • Broccoli / Cauliflower

Directions to cook:

  1. Put the Chicken in a Roasting pan. Add a little oil and put it in the oven.
  2. Peel potatoes and cut them into 4 pieces.
  3. Cut the pumpkin into large pieces and leave the skin on.
  4. Cut the carrots into 3 big pieces. Again, leave the skin on.
  5. Cut the ends off the onions and peel. Cut them in half
  6. Run the broccoli or cauliflower under water and cut into pieces. You can just cut it into quarters.
  7. Put all the vegetables except the pumpkin, carrots and onion into pots, and place the pots on the stove. The onions and carrots go into the roasting pan. Place the pumpkin skin-down on the rack.
  8. When potatoes are almost ready, drop them into the deep fryer.
  9. Place a cup of gravy powder and water in the microwave when everything is cooked and stir every 20 seconds until thick.

The roast is ready. I spend maximum15 minutes preparing my roast dinners. They are really the easiest thing that I can think to make! In fact I can play online poker as I do them. I don’t know the person who said roasts were hard. They got it wrong!
