It was Patni’s third Adda52 Millions win. His last victory in this particular tournament had come in January 2018. Post his latest Millions win, we got in touch with Patni and he said, “It was my 3rd Adda52 Millions win and it feels great to ship it a third time. I think, only Sushi and Shravan have done this thrice or more. So, it’s great to be in esteemed company. My last Adda52 Millions win was back in January 2018. So, it has taken a long time and I had been itching to win it. This was one of the those very few tournaments where I became the chip leader very early and maintained it right throughout. It doesn’t normally happen. The final table went on for a very long time. With 5 people left, I was 3/5 and all of them wanted a deal and I kept rejecting it. Finally, when 1 more busted, I was too tired and agreed to the deal.”
