Sugen Singh Triumphs as Champion of the 2024 Sunbet Poker Tour Time Square Main Event

In a thrilling finale at the Time Square Casino in Pretoria, the 2024 SunBet Poker Tour Time Square Main Event crowned its champions, marking an exciting culmination to the tournament. Sugen Singh emerged victorious amidst a three-way deal, claiming a lion’s share of the ZAR5,266,800 ($281,989) prize pool alongside SM and MAJ, both esteemed contenders who showcased their skills at the highly anticipated live-streamed final table.

With a total of 418 entries spanning four starting days, the event soared beyond its ZAR5,000,000 guarantee, drawing seasoned players from South Africa’s vibrant poker community. The allure of the ZAR15,000 (~$ $790) buy-in attracted notable figures, setting the stage for an electrifying showdown.

Sugen Singh, renowned for his prowess and adorned with numerous rings, commanded attention with his strategic play. Securing the second-largest stack during the deal negotiations, Singh clinched the championship title along with ZAR707,675 ($38,214). SM’s commanding performance earned a handsome ZAR1,000,000 ($54,000), while MAJ secured third place with a notable payday of ZAR600,000 ($32,400).

Jarred Solomon’s departure marked a pivotal moment in the tournament, as he succumbed to SM in a decisive flip, ultimately finishing in fourth place. Notably absent from the final table were early favorites Keegan Pillay and Roy Bitton, despite their strong positions heading into the final day.

The final day witnessed intense action as twelve hopefuls vied for victory. Bitton’s early exit paved the way for a series of compelling confrontations, with Gavin Sardini and Singh emerging as formidable contenders. SM’s strategic maneuvers propelled him to the chip lead, a position he maintained until the pivotal three-way deal.

As the final day unfolded, Gareth Kalil’s meteoric rise and subsequent fall mirrored the unpredictable nature of the game. Norman Cherry and David Ng’s departures further narrowed the field, setting the stage for a dramatic conclusion. With the final trio opting for a deal, the tournament concluded after a whirlwind four-hour finale.

The collaboration between the Monster Jam Poker Tour (MJPT) and Sun International Group continues to thrive, epitomizing the success of the SunBet Poker Tour. Anticipation mounts for the upcoming series, with five exciting stops scheduled for 2024, including the prestigious SunBet Poker Tour Sun City at The Palace of the Lost City. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Pilanesberg National Park, this event promises to captivate players and enthusiasts alike from April 24 to May 5, 2024.
