APF Day 8: Bagai Denies Lakhotia APF Mega Holdem Title; Nasa Tops APF Full House Day 1B Survivors!

With the 5.8 Crore GTD Adda52 Poker Fest (APF) nearing its end, the competition is heating up. Yesterday was yet another day of intense poker action with as many as 8 tournaments playing down to a winner. While hundreds of elite grinders took to the virtual felt, stealing the spotlight was none other than PSL Co-Founder Pranav Bagai who shipped the 30 Lac GTD APF Mega Holdem for INR 8.24 Lac. Yesterday also saw Day 1B of the showstopper tourney of the series – the 1 Crore GTD APF Full House. The second flight of the event that saw 283 entries ended with Akshay Nasa leading 30 survivors.  

30 Lac GTD APF Mega Holdem

The biggest APF tourney to crown a winner on APF Day 8 yesterday was the 30 Lac GTD APF Mega Holdem sporting a buy-in of INR 15K. The tournament attracted an impressive 224-entry field to generate INR 30.24 Lac prizepool that was shared by top 24 players with a min-cash of INR 22,680.

After more than 7 hours of play, the 2012 Casino Royale Cup 50K Main Event champion Pranav Bagai aka ‘macchi123’ came out on top of the field to bank an impressive INR 8.24 Lac in top prize. Bagai locked horns with online MTT specialist Manish Lakhotia aka ‘newkidpoker’ in heads-up who played well but could not go all the way, ultimately finishing runner-up for INR 4.84 Lac prizemoney.

Last night’s Mega Holdem win is by far Bagai’s biggest score on adda52.com. Some of his other notable scores include as many as six final table finishes in Adda52 Millions and one FT finish in Whale 6-Max, apart from plenty of deep runs across several marquee tournaments on the site.  

The final table was star-studded as it had the likes of AOPS Holdem High Roller winner ‘yud1006’ (3rd for INR 3.70 Lac), Muskan Sethi (4th for INR 2.65 Lac), and Raghav Bansal (6th for INR 1.28 Lac).
