It was one of the most awesome rails ever in online poker in India. Two Indian poker players making a deep run in one of the most prestigious online poker tournaments. Aditya ‘d0nkabomer’ Sushant and Abhishek ‘alwaysdegen‘ carried Team India through in the finals of the $215 Sunday Millions, $5 M GTD at Pokerstars to finish 9th and 7th respectively. While Sushant, the only ever Indian poker player to have made two Sunday Million final tables took $52,754, Abhishek of Delhi won $96,014. This is the first time that two Indians made it to the final table but also ironic that one of them had to take down the other. It was the pocket 8’s of Sushant that went down to Abhishek’s AK. It may be recalled here that OPN had highlighted Aditya Sushant as one of the players to watch out for in 2015. It is now evident that he will be starting the new year on a huge high.
