After finishing runner-up and making several final table finishes in Adda52’s Godfather, Goonjan Mall aka ‘gmtesting’ finally broke the jinx of not closing another final table. He won last night’s Godfather 8.0 for an impressive INR 5,08,400 after beating a good reg – Laksh Pal Singh aka ‘BoomTilt23’ in heads-up. Laksh took home INR 3,07,500 for his runner-up finish. In addition to the top prize, Mall also earned a seat into the 9 Lac Vegas Package SNG to be played on 5th May 2019.
Godfather is one of Adda52’s biggest featured tournaments with a buy-in of INR 5,500 and a massive guaranteed prize pool of INR 20 Lac. Yesterday’s tournament saw an impressive participation of 410 entries in total, easily crushing the guarantee and generating INR 20,50,000 in total prizepool, which was distributed among the top 43 players with minimum cash prizes starting from INR 11,275.
On his way to the win, Mall beat a tough field that included Ramandeep Gujral (5th for INR 1,06,600), Abhishek Garg (6th for INR 71,750), Pranav Khandalkar (9th for INR 32,800), Adda52 Team Pro Tarun Goyal (10th for INR 25,625), ‘King0fMerge’ (14th for INR 20,,500), Gaurav Sood (23rd for 15,375), Vinay B (25th for INR 15,375), Adda52 Team Pro Kunal Patni (28th for INR 13,325), Kunal Vohra (31st for INR 13,325), ‘zxcvuiop’ (37th for INR 11,275), Sahil Mahboobani (42nd) and Jaydeep Dawer (43rd).
Post his grand win, we got in touch with Mall and he said, “It feels good to break the jinx of not closing another FT. I play tournaments to win, and once in a while you need those victories”.
Talking about the field, he said, “The field was on expected lines – softer than Adda52 Millions but tougher than most fields of Adda52. We had really good players like ‘BoomTilt23’, ‘aggtarun’, ‘King0fMerge’ and some really tough aggressive players – ‘thuscame’,’anuj25395’ in the final 15.”
When asked about the turning point, he said,“The winning moment was really when we were 4-handed. I was chip leader. ‘thuscame’ decided to 4-bet shove AJ when I had JJ. JJs held up giving me 70% chips in play.”
