What a start to the New Year! Chetan Oswal won the very first Godfather of 2019 to take home a hefty INR 6,28,800 and an entry into a 9 Lac Vegas Package SNG to be played on 3rd March 2019.
Playing under ‘oswalchetan’, Oswal is a lesser-known player who registered on Adda52 just a few months ago. Like most of us, the player started with small buy-in tournaments and after faring well across these tournaments, he decided to play some major tournaments. Yesterday, he took part in the INR 5,500 buy-in Godfather 7.0 and finally ended up winning it after a long grind of over 8 hours.
The 1st Godfather of 2019, which was also the first of its 7th edition, went on to become a huge success with a record field of 524 entries, which took the total prize pool to a whopping INR 26,40,000. The prize pool was shared by top 55 finishers with min-cashes starting from INR 11,790.
On his way to the victory in this most successful Godfather tournament, Oswal beat a strong field and a tough final table that featured our WSOP bracelet winner Aditya Sushant aka ‘A_Sushant’ (runner-up for INR 3,66,800), Adda52 Team Pro – Tarun Goyal aka ‘aggtarun’ (2nd runner-up for INR 2,48,900) and Hitesh Batra aka ‘buntai’, who exited the tournament in 9th place for INR 39,300.
The tournament saw several regs and pros battling it out for the 1st place. Some notables who finished in the money among them were Shravan Chhabria aka ‘sweatmyass13’- 14th for INR 26,200, Siddharth Karia aka ‘skaria1’ – 17th for INR 22,270, Sumit Sapra aka ‘Hammer_Head’ – 25th for INR 17,030, Gokul Raj aka ‘gokoolered’ – 38th for INR 14,410, Manesh Rathod aka ‘TEAMfromHELL’ – 47th for INR 11,790 and ‘badtameez_donk’ – 53rd for INR 11,790 in prize.
While the winner Oswal was not available for the comment, he must be happy with his terrific start to 2019. This major win must be a huge boost to his online poker bankroll and his overall motivation.
