For Sharma, this win is the biggest score on adda52.com, so it is a huge boost to his bankroll. Talking about his victory in this tournament, Sharma said, “It feels great to win this tourney. It was a fun experience. This was one of the bigger prize pooled tourneys on Adda52, so it’s quite good that I won it.”
Talking about the field and his journey in this tournament, the winner Sharma said, “Field was quite soft in my opinion. I played quite aggressive at the start and was able to build a big chip stack. Then, I played solid once I had big stack to reach to the final table. I made the final table 7th out of 8 in chips. Then, I got doubled up in a cooler situation to become a mid stack. Later, one important hand happened, where I got rewarded by chip leader’s aggression. I limped qq from utg, chip leader on the bb raised, I wanted to disguise my hand and just called. Flop was 843cc and he 3x pot jammed on the flop with nothing jd9d, and I called . This gave me a chip lead, and then I held on to it to take down this tourney.”
