Deepinder Singh is a familiar face to most Los Angeles poker regulars. He has been on the tournament circuit for quite some time now, and is usually throwing his hat into the ring in just about any tournament in Southern California. Despite this, Singh just earned his first victory of over $10,000 earlier this week when he took down the $1,100 event for over $34,000.
“I feel great to beat someone heads up. Yeah I’ve been getting close the last eight months but could never close it. So this feels great.”
Singh came into the Day 2 finals in the middle of a pack, but after scoring a big double up early on, Singh was a fixture at the top of the chip counts the rest of the day.
“I got a double up early with two pair cracking aces, so that made me even more comfortable gave me alot of room to play.”
The final table was extremely deep thanks to the usual slow structures that Matt Savage and Justin Hammer create for this series. The big blind ante was used in this event, a wrinkle that Singh said he is a huge fan of.
“The big blind ante is one of the best things that could happen to poker honestly. It’s really good we play so many more hands because of that.”
Singh said that he is way up there in the Mega Satellite Player of the Series list, and for that reason, he will be playing the $10,000 Main Event this weekend.
“I think I’m up there in the mega satellites series. I’m going to play the main for sure. I’ve already secured two seats,” Singh said with a laugh.
Congratulations again to Singh on his impressive outright victory in this event.
