The most anticipated tournament in India, 5 Crore GTD EndBoss, has crowned its newest champion in none other than the Adda52 Game Ambassador Arun Sriram. The live and online reg was at his best last night as he went on a tear, securing not one but two titles from his epic Sunday grind.
Sriram became the sixth EndBoss champion after besting a massive field of 9,147 contestants (10 Qualifier flights) in a spectacular display of skill and tenacity. The 38-year-old from Bangalore, who is no stranger to spectacular triumphs, notched this career-defining victory in less than eight hours. He not only won the coveted title, but also a whopping INR 1 Crore prize money – his career-best score.
The runner-up spot was claimed by Thiyam Dannish aka ‘thiyam’ (INR 55 Lac), while Nitin Rawat aka ‘Gambler42’ rounded out podium finishes, claiming a hefty INR 30 Lac for his remarkable run.
Talking about his historic victory, the 2021 ACL champion said, “With such a large field of players vying for the biggest score in India, it was an exhilarating journey to be honest. It ended up being a test of patience and perseverance. The feeling I have is a blend of joy, accomplishment and a deep sense of gratitude. This win sort of reaffirms my personal belief that positive expectations trump all. I have visualised winning so many of these tournaments so often that when I eventually won it felt normal. I’m incredibly thankful to be able to play this game that we all love and able to make my time worthy. While this remains my biggest score till date, I can’t help but believe that this is just another milestone in my poker journey. Waiting to embrace the new challenges that lies ahead.”
The two-time Adda52 Big Game champion also shipped Adda52’s Nano Highroller less than an hour before his EndBoss win, taking home the top prize of 2.55 Lac after a heads-up deal. He raced past a strong field of 452 entries, securing the coveted Nano Highroller title. In addition to winning two titles, Sriram cashed three other tournaments, amassing a whopping INR 1.04 crore in total earnings.
While this is his highest score and has significantly boosted his bankroll, Arun Sriram has greater aspirations for the future and will be looking for the new challenges in order to place himself among the finest players. We congratulate him and wish him the best of luck in his poker journey ahead!
