Indian Poker Wins

After a fantastic start to 2015 with two five-figure scores by Arsh Grover and Arvindhan L in online poker, the young guns of Indian poker are taking the online felt by storm on PokerStars. The weekend witnesses two huge wins of 5-figure cash prizes taken down by Sahil ‘antilog’ Agarwal and r.shetty. Sahil shipped the PS The Big $11, $65K Gtd tourney bagging $14,527.67 while r.shetty grabbed $13,846 for his 7th place finish in PS $215 Sunday Warm up event.

In a marathon grind which ran for over 9 hours, Sahil walloped a field of 9,872 players to clinch his first big win at the online felt this year. r.shetty too was sailing furiously in the Sunday Warm up tourney with sizeable chip stack but was busted in 7th place when his pocket Jacks couldn’t withstand Villain’s AK.

In the other tourneys on PokerStars this weekend, kingpaulie pocketed $1,025.59 winning down the $33 NL Hold’em, $4K Gtd event on Sunday. Few other Indian contingents finished in money in different Sunday tourneys on PokerStars. funsukwangdu bagged $498 for 410th spot finish in PS Sunday Million. ARCS07 too cashed in $1,260 for his 103rd finish in the $215 Sunday Million. luckyshibu drew$460 in The Big $44 before falling in 12th position.

While most of the Indian poker players exhibited the major action in PokerStars tourneys on Sunday, few of them battled out to win good cash on Friday and Saturday too. felter1989 played aggressively in the The Hot $44 [Turbo], $40K Gtd to grab $2,136.16 for his 6th place finish on Friday. In the Saturday events, funsukwangdu ran deep in $82 NL Hold’em [6-Max, Hyper-Turbo], $15K Gtd but fell in 4th place pocketing $1,665.88 while anuppalod bagged $1,238.62 for his 7th place finish in The Hot $11 [Turbo], $35K Gtd.

In the weekend events finished today, felter1989 finished 56th in the PS $530 Sunday 500 event bagging $1,123.75 and danish7 won $2403 before falling in the 9th position.
