This past Independence Day, India’s largest poker site – adda52.com hosted several tournaments and promotions. One super-value offering was the Freedom Fullhouse, which featured an incredible value with INR 10 Lac GTD prizepool for just INR 500. The event that kicked off at 7 PM on 15th August and lasted for over 8 hours went on to become a historic one with a record-breaking 2500+ entries, the highest turnout in an online poker events history in India for such a low buy-in.
After several hours of tough battles with some of India’s top pros, regulars and the past winners of the Adda52 tourneys, it was the small-stack player Prabhav Sanganeria aka ‘Prabhav22’ who managed to beat the record-field to win an impressive INR 2,81,174 for his first-place finish. He faced Sanjay B S aka ‘s4pp4s’ in heads-up, who didn’t let it go easily and battled it hard but could not go all the way. Eventually, Sanjay had to settle for a cool INR 1,51,876 for his second-place finish.
The last hand of the tournament came with blinds running 125000 – 250000 where the eventual winner and the chip leader ‘Prabhav22’ holding Jc 7h shoved his monstrous stack and his heads-up mate ‘s4pp4s’ holding 3c 3h snapped with his remaining stack of 3071138. The board ran out Jh 2d As 4d 4s where ‘Prabhav22’ made two pairs to notch up his first major victory for INR 2,81,174.
The Winner’s Poker Journey!

He was looking for the big prizepool events at low buy-ins and Adda52 fulfilled his long-cherished dream by bringing Freedom Fullhouse where he battled it with the top pros of India and eventually emerged the winner. While he had already notched up some cashes, this win gave him his best online score.
A total of 162 players were paid out with the lion’s share going to the eventual winner. Some notable players who finished in the money included the likes of Zonas, IMUNAGI, buntai, narcoss, bothras, DKM1977, Mayankp0985, johnnygovil, Redbull89, ImHighIshove, and A_Sushant.
