Post his win, we spoke to the winner Chandan Arora, who seemed very happy about his win and said, “Hands down, Adda52 Millions is the best tournament on the Indian felts. I have always loved its structure – 6-max and deep. This was my 7th FT and 3rd Chop. Kudos to Adda52 for such a great tourney”.
Talking about his journey, he said, “I think, the hand which catapulted me to FT was during last two tables. Alok opened from CO (I guess) and I 3-bet him with KK followed by a 4-bet shove from him with JJ for 50 bigs and boom I knew I got this. Standard hand but you need to get lucky in these spots.”
Talking about his run over last one year, he said, “I took one year break from work last year. And I have been fortunate enough to make it count. Hopefully, the hard work I put in everyday will take me to much greater heights. And the way Poker scene is booming in India, I think, we are all in for a treat.”
