Weekend Majors: Sagar Choudhury, ‘autobot93’, Abhishek Gubba & Sam Anand Win Majors

It turned out to be a super weekend on adda52.com with several high-value online events taking place on the platform. Headlining them all was the 25 Lac GTD Mega Suits that proved to be a grand success, attracting a field of total 557 entries to easily crush its specified guarantee and take the prizepool to a whopping INR 27.45 Lac, which was eventually shared by the top 63 finishers.

Topping the field was Sagar Choudhury aka ‘alwaysnutz’ who took home INR 5.27 Lac after a heads-up deal with ‘riverbet1’ who settled for INR 5.08 Lac. Online regs like ‘Aarchit’ (4th for INR 1,94,950), ‘Karl11’ (6th for INR 97,475), and Aniket Waghmare (7th for INR 76,588) final-tabled the event.

A consistent player on adda52.com, Sagar Choudhury has scored plenty of victories on the poker site, including his win in Godfather 2.0, Godfather Vegas SnG, Blaze, Whale 6-Max, Adda52 Millions, Big Slick, and Crackjack to name a few. Mega Suits was the only featured tourney that he had never won adda52.com, but last night he eventually shipped it too after beating a field of 557 entries.

Post his yet another major win on adda52.com, we caught-up with Sagar Choudhury and he said, “It feels great as Mega Suits was the only regular featured tourney left on Adda52 which I had never won in the past. The grind was one of the longest ones as the event ended at 6.00 am in the morning, that too when we decided to do a heads-up deal. The last two tables had some very good regs but fortunately the final table had only 2 or 3 regs. So, it was kind of easy to put pressure after the regs got busted.”

Top 63 got paid with a min-cash of INR 11,836. Some notable regs who finished deep included the likes of Shagun Jain (9th for INR 41,775), kanchan sharma (10th for INR 30635), Eka Vedantham (15th for INR 25,065), Gaurav Sood (16th for INR 22280), and Shravan Chhabria (18th for INR 22280).

Post his second Big Slick win, we caught-up with Gubba and he said, “It’s a stuff fairy tales are made of especially for a mid-stakes grinder like me. Shipping a major twice in such a short span of time.”

Talking about the field and his journey in the tournament, Gubba said, “The field was softish again. This time, it was pretty much straight forward as I was a massive CL for pretty much time on the FT. However, the heads-up was very tough against an aggressive opponent, so I had to dig deep.”
