Abhinav Iyer Wins The Ballers; Vikas Shah Tops 1 Crore GTD Full House Day 1A

Fridays are always a good time to play poker on adda52.com and yesterday was action-packed with several high-value tourneys taking place on India’s no.1 poker site. The biggest tourney to crown a winner was the 17 Lac GTD The Ballers that enjoyed an eventful run, pulling in 403 entries (214 unique and 189 re-entries) and taking the prizepool to a hefty INR 27.60 Lac, which got distributed among the top 43 finishers. After several hours of intense fights, the final showdown took place between the two well-known players – WSOP bracelet winner Abhinav ‘checkshove’ Iyer and Vivek ‘vivek94540’ Singh. Both players entered a heads-up deal with Iyer eventually taking down the title for INR 5.88 Lac, while Singh finished runner-up and settled for an impressive INR 5.09 Lac prize.

Currently ranked 5th in ‘India ALL Time Money List’ with $870,437 in live earnings, Iyer is a big name on the Indian circuit. The APT Vietnam Main Event champion is as good online as he is at the live felts and has already won several big money events on adda52.com, including Adda52 Millions, PayCheck, Godfather, Big Slick AF and AOPS Millions. After missing out on a title in a marquee tourney last night, the talented pro eventually shipped The Ballers and added one more win to his name.
