Yesterday saw the first tournament of the 11th edition of Adda52’s Godfather, a flagship tournament that features a hefty INR 20 Lac in prize pool guarantee along with an opportunity to win a 7 Lac Aussie Package. The popular online event began at 8 PM last night and ended at 3.35 AM this morning with Chirag Bhardwaj aka ‘mahikk’ winning it after outlasting a strong field of 388 entries.
Bhardwaj reached heads-up with ‘Rishabh90’ who fought well but couldn’t go all the way eventually finishing runner-up to Bhardwaj who took home an impressive INR 4,96,000 in top prize. It was not an easy win for the recent Whale winner as he had to face a strong FT that had some tough players in Sahil Mahboobani (3rd for INR 2.10 Lac) and Adda52 Team Pro Tarun Goyal (9th for INR 32k).
A regular on adda52.com, Bhardwaj is a very consistent online poker player with plenty of cashes and a few major wins on the poker site. Last night’s Godfather was his fourth major victory this year as the rising talent has already won Adda52 Millions, Beast (won 2 times) and Whale 6-Max, apart from making multiple FT finishes across various events. Among his most recent scores include a 3rd place finish in CrackJack and a couple of deep runs across other popular online tournaments.
Combing back to Godfather, the tournament paid to top 43 with a min-cash of INR 11K. As usual, it saw many notables in contention and some of them to finish deep were Sandeep Verma (4th for INR 1.60 Lac), Sajal Gupta (13th for INR 25k), Naren Purohit (17th for INR 20K), Devang Yadav (18th for INR 17K), Mukesh Surana (19th for INR 17k), and Manish Lakhotia (21st for INR 17K).
