Expressing his joy Suvarna said, “I’m so happy. Finally, I won this tournament,” according to the official blog.
“This tournament, big pros are playing. I’m easily learning, actually. I am watching Triton videos. Triton is the best,” he further added.
Suvarna previously operated the Rockets Poker Room in Bangalore but later shifted to Dubai, where he is working in real estate while also operating an online casino business.
The poker player has been trying to get the championship title for the past few years, reaching the final table back in September 2022 during the TSHR Series Event #5: $75K NLHE 8–Handed, where he secured eight positions.
Earlier this year, in March, Suvarna placed fourth at the TSHR Vietnam Event #7: $75K NLHE before finally winning the championship title on 11 May.
Even prior to these international events, Suvarna has taken part in popular Indian poker tournaments. In April 2017, he played the No-Limit Hold’em High Roller at the Deltin Poker Tournament in Goa and secured seventh position and a prize of $6,973.
Suvarna also took part in No-Limit High Roller at the Baazi Poker Tour, securing sixth place with $8,839 back in January 2020.
