With the lockdown getting extended till May 3, Indian poker sites continue to enjoy the surge in traffic. India’s no. 1 poker site – adda52.com hosted several high-value poker tournaments yesterday and the most prominent among them was the 7.5 Lac GTD Hitman that once again wrapped up with a grand success, drawing 389 entries (186 unique and 203 re-entries) and resulting in a hefty INR 12.44 Lac prizepool, which got paid to the top 43 finishers with a min-cash being INR 6,846. In the end, the lion’s share went to notable online reg Devrat ‘vickypune’ Singh who outlasted the lawyer-turned poker pro Ashish ‘rocky3705’ Ahuja (2nd for INR 2.07 Lac) in HU to bank INR 3.36 Lac. Ahuja has been on a winning spree of late and had enjoyed a phenomenal run in the recent AOPS on Adda52.
Other notables ending their run on FT were Guneet Kwatra (5th for INR 64,730), Ritesh Tripathi (6th for INR 43,568) and Romit Advani (8th for INR 28,008). Some other well-known players to finish deep in the tournament included the likes of Bhavye Mittal (11th), Kavish Kukreja (12th), Deepak Raina (13th), Mihir Thakkar (16th), Meherzad Munsaf (17th), Sagar Choudhury (19th), etc.
Devrat is one of the very consistent players on adda52.com and has plenty of wins and FT finishes to his name. He has already won so many tournaments on the site, including several Beast tourneys, Blaze, multiple wins in Go Goa, Mega Suits, CrackJack, Berlin, and several Hexagram tourneys. Last night, he added one more victory to his fast-growing online poker resume by winning the Hitman.
Talking about his grand win and the field in the tournament, the Hitman winner Devrat Singh, who also finished ITM in Adda52’s Hexagram tourney last night, said, “Shipping a tourney is always special. The field was tough, especially the players on the final table were really good players.”
