We are 3 weeks away from the 47th Annual World Series of Poker to be held at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Several Indian players have planned to play the biggest and the most prestigious poker tournament of the year. WSOP has added a lot of excitement by announcing several changes as well as some new events. After 33 years, WSOP will be hosting a team event of $1,000 buy-in. Event #61: $1,000 Tag Team No-Limit Hold’em (2-4 person teams) will be start on 6th July and will be played across 3 days. Each player of the winning team will be awarded WSOP gold bracelet.
OPN spoke to Indian poke players about whom will they pick as their team member for this event. Read below what they say and share with us whom will you pick your team member if play the WSOP Tag Team event.
Madan kumar – So, I teamed with Kunal Patni in WPT Manila team event and would like to team up with him for this event too. And, I would team with him because our playing styles complement each other and we seemed to share a good understanding on the approach and strategy in the team format.
Raghav Bansal – My first pick would be Aditya Agarwal I think. Reason being, he is the best and most experienced player from India and the WSOP is like his second home. He knows how to navigate those fields better than anyone else from our country !
But, there are so many other good players too. So, let’s see. I’m sure I’ll find someone good to team up with.
Aditya Sushant – I would pick bblack (Amit Jain). He and I would make a good team. We know how each other play fairly well.
Dhaval Mudgal – I’d say Akash Malik as we won the Teams Event at MPC and act as a perfect counterfoil to each other. But, as the WSOP event allows up to 4 players, my dream team would probably include Antilog (Sahil Agarwal) and Bblack (Amit Jain) as well.
Paawan Bansal – I would pick Raghav Bansal. So, we can call it the Bansal brotherhood J
Amit Jain – Ideally, I would love to partner Aditya Agarwal since he is the best in India and one of the best in the world and he has a lot of experience at the WSOP.
Kunal Patni – Bblacklegend (Amit Jain) or Dhaval Mudgal. Two of the players I respect the most in the Indian poker community after Adi of course. Both of them are aggressive whereas I am more tight solid. I think we will complement each other very well.
Sangeet Mohan – Ideally it would be intervention (Aditya Agarwal), because hey, if u have god by your side you know you’re good. But, realistically it will be KCdesi (Kunal Chandra) because we have won a Teams Event in the past and our styles complement each other.
Abhishek Rathod – I would go to the WSOP Teams Event with Sushi (Aditya Sushant). I think he is one of the best players right now live and online, always has deep runs. Very sound poker game.
Sabyasachi Chakraborty – Sushi (Aditya Sushant) of course..! We both are crazy.
Kavish Kukreja – I will be teaming up Amit Jain. As, we have played lots together and he knows my style of play and vice-versa more than anyone else. And we go back a long way too..!
