One of their popular online tournaments is Godfather, an INR 5,500 buy-in tourney that takes place every Thursday at 8 PM and promises a guaranteed prize pool of INR 20 Lac and an entry Ticket to INR 7 Lac Aussie SNG.
Currently, Adda52 is hosting Godfather 5.0, where the winner also gets an entry ticket to an SNG Finale where eight eventual winners will battle it out for INR 7 Lac package trip to play in the prestigious Aussie series in Australia. Yesterday’s Godfather wrapped-up successfully drawing a total of 368 entries. Outlasting the field this time was the young gun Chiraag Patel aka ‘vipervenom’.
Chiraag beat a strong field to take down the tournament for INR 5,20,000. He got past through a tough final table that included the likes India’s first female WSOP bracelet winner – Nikita Luther aka ‘nikitaluther’, DPT February 2018 Bounty Winner – Ashish Ahujua aka ‘rocky3705’, the recent Whale 6-Max winner – Siddarth Singhvi aka ‘badtameez_donk’, the recent Adda52 Millions winner – Abhishek Garg aka ‘thegrinder’, and the well-known pro – Sumit Sapra aka ‘Hammer_Head’.
“I had actually just busted (near the bubble) the Turbo Superstack event here in Vietnam and went back to my room to watch a movie. I decided to play only Godfather and registered with like 20BB. I got off to a really good start with a couple of double-ups. I kind of cruised for a while and then went completely card dead with 30 remaining players. I got really lucky then as I jammed to crack KK with A4s for a small double-up and then just kind of maneuvered from there. Another key hand before the FT was a double-up against Sumit Sapra 88 VS a10 where I hit Quads,”Chiraag said after his win in Godfather 5.0.
Talking about the final table and heads-up, Chiraag said, “The final table comprised of several tough players. I think, I played reasonably solid poker to make it to heads up against Nikita Luther.”
“The heads up was a lot of fun. Both our stacks yo-yo’d for the longest time (in fact I was down to 8BB at one point) and I definitely ran quite good to eventually ship it. Looking forward to the SNG now!”
Chiraag is not new to winning poker tournaments online, as the player has also won several online tournaments on adda52.com. Recently, he finished runner-up in Adda52’s popular tourney Mega Suits.
