Yesterday marked the start of a new week and India’s largest poker site – adda52.com hosted its weekly tourney – The Roar that features 7 Lac GTD prizepool and takes place every Monday at 8PM.
The tournament has a buy-in of INR 4,400 and players from all over the country compete in it every Monday. Yesterday, a total of 133 entries (71 unique+ 62 re-entries) registered to the tournament.
Outlasting the 133-entry field in this tournament yesterday was Delhi’s Arjunn Agrawal, who got his hands on the top prize of INR 1,87,789. The player has been enjoying a good form in online poker. This past Sunday night, he took down the Chip-Up Series Main Event on adda52.com beating ‘chirandh’ in heads-up to win the top prize of INR 2.5 Lac and then he followed up that by winning Roar on Monday night. The player cashed out in Sunday night’s Mega Suits tourney as well.
Ultimately, only the top 8 players were paid out in The Roar, with a minimum prize of INR 21k. Arjunn took the lion’s share of the prizepool after beating ‘Nalasooparain’ in heads-up, who took away the runner-up prize of INR 1,86,711. Some notables who made it to the final table in the event included Manish Lakhotia aka ‘newkidpoker’( 4th for INR 77K), Akash Malik aka ‘profishnal’ (5th for INR 58K), and the WSOP bracelet winner – Aditya Sushant aka A_Sushant (6th for INR 42K).
This year has been crazy for Arjunn as he has won several tournaments on adda52.com. Apart from his back-to-back wins in the Chip-Up Main Event & The Roar, the player has also won The Whale and Sunday Suits this year, plus he has final-tabled in several events such as Godfather and Judwaa.
We caught up with Arjunn Agrawal after his win in The Roar tourney and this is what he had to say:
Talking about his victory, the field and his journey, he said, “Winning always feels good. Quite a few entries in The Roar but the field was tough. I got very lucky at the most crucial stages of the tournament. I ran into Aces twice, once against ‘A_sushant’ on the Final table blind against blind. I shoved K10s from the small bind and ran into Aces with BB but got lucky to hit 10 on the floor and then on the river.”
Sharing his plans in live and online poker, the player said, “Online grind keeps going. It is a part of life. And yeah for sure, I will be attending the WPT India 2018 ( from 13-19 November at Deltin Royale, Goa).
