Akshay Nasa’s 2018 Journey
With this win in Mega Suits, Nasa, who plays under his online name ‘vibaks’ on Adda52, has added yet another score to his already impressive resume. While he has won several tournaments on other major sites, Adda52 has been the biggest hunting ground for him. He started the year in style by notching up a couple of runner-up finishes in Whale and Adda52 Millions in February. He then followed up these scores with FT finishes in Whale, Adda52 Millions, Roar and Godfather.
In May this year, Nasa cashed out in PayCheck and then went on to make a couple of FT finishes in Whale along with the final table finishes in Godfather and Judwaa. These scores were followed by his Juice, Whale and Judwaa wins, plus his runner-up finishes in Hitman and Judwaa in June.
The month of July saw Nasa winning Adda52’s Crazy Leaderboard VI, Adda52 Millions, Sunday Masters, plus a couple of wins in Night Riders & Beast. He also finished 3rd in Whale 6-Max.
Continuing his momentum, he made a couple of FT finishes in Godfather. That is not all, he also made it to the FT in other key tournaments – Hitman and Whale 6-Max. Then, came September and the player started it by winning Beast and making FT finishes in Judwaa, beast and Adda52 Millions. The player ended the month in style by winning Whale 6-Max and Adda52 Millions.
October saw Nasa finishing runner-up in Adda52 Millions and winning Maverick. The crazy run continued through November and December ahead as the player notched up some more notable scores.
