‘It’s a tournament I’ve been trying to win for a while’: Sahil Mahboobani, Godfather 6.0 Winner

Last night, Adda52 hosted its high-value weekly tournament – Godfather 6.0 that began at the usual 8 pm and came to an end at 4:15 pm in morning today. The INR 5,500 buy-in event drew a total of 448 entries and generated INR 22,40,000 in prizepool to easily crush the specified guarantee.

After a long grind of over 8 hours, the tournament finally crowned a winner in none other than Sahil Mahboobani aka ‘ImHighIshove’ who recently finished runner-up in the 2018 WPT India Main Event for INR 46,53,000. Maboobani, who had finished 4th in the same tournament last month, reached heads-up with Rishab Jain aka ‘Ris0915’ who fought well but couldn’t go all the way, eventually finishing runner-up for INR 3,24,800. Mahboobani took home INR 5,48,800 for his win.

To build his victory in this online tournament, Mahboobani beat a tough field and a strong final table that had some good regs in ‘Peacelover’ (3rd for INR 2,24,000), ‘riverking021’ (4th for INR 1,68,000), Arjun Agrawal aka ‘arjunagrawal05’ (6th for INR 78,400), Aditya Kulkarni aka ‘Adit11’ (7th for INR 61600), Akshay Dhingra aka ‘NoFuchsGiven’ (8th for INR 50,400). High-rollers specialist – Sriharsha Doddapaneni aka ‘Ivey2’ was the final table bubble. He finished 10th for INR 28,000.

We caught-up with Mahboobani to know about his 2018 run and this Godfather win and he said,“I had many close finishes. 2nd in Adda52 Millions & Whale twice. 4th in Godfather twice. So, definitely it feels good to run well and finally win this one. It’s a tournament I’ve been trying to win for a while.”

This is the 6th edition of Godfather series on Adda52, and the winners of 9 Godfather tournaments will play the Godfather 6.0 Finale SNG on 30th December. A total of 49 players were paid out in this last night’s event with a min-cash of INR 12,320. Some notables who made money were ‘Oshoswami’ (17th place), ‘checkshove’ (21st place), ‘Bhaijiii’ (26th place) and ‘A_Sushant’ (28th place).
