This Sunday began the much awaited Winter Kings League from PokerMet.com. This is their second major tournament series after the successful completion of War of ZEHN, which promised a culminated GTD of 1 crore. This time it is promising the same amount, but the Winter Kings League is going to be slightly different as it is not a ‘depositors’ freeroll series’. Each tourney within the WKL will be individual tournaments, independent in its ranking or hierarchy with a stand-alone GTD amount.
Moreover, the Winter Kings League will host both Pot Limit Omaha as well as No Limit Texas Hold ‘em poker, which is a welcome change from tournaments that most online poker sites host. The first tournament Coronation began this Sunday, 7th January, 2018 and registered over 170+ entrants to the game. The GTD promised was INR 20K with a buy-in of INR 115/- (R + A).
But the players met with a great surprise mid-game, wherein the GTD was increased to INR 32K from pre-determined 20K. The tourney successfully went on for 4 hours starting from 10:00 PM sharp. There were a total of 53 players who made it “in the money”. The top 5 of which, includes – ‘Zokomo’ i.e. Nimesh Patel, ‘Meshuggas45’ i.e. Lalit Kumar, ‘Lobo’ i.e. Bhaskar Sharma, ‘Dedpul’ i.e. Ganesh Vishwanath and ‘Tom’ i.e. Vetri Vel, went on to make the highest cut out of the massive GTD amount. Apart from the buy-in amount, the tourney also allowed Re-buy and Add-ons for the players.
The next tournament of the league will be held this Sunday, 14th January, 2018 and promises INR 30K GTD (for now) for a buy-in of INR 230/- only (RE). This is a Pot Limit Omaha tournament, named Knighthood. Late registrations into the game will be allowed for 88 minutes after the game has begun. Let’s see if the organizers increase the GTD amount once again for this game…
