Adda52 is always searching for unique ways to reward its players and yesterday the poker site hosted its flagship tourney ‘Gayle Storm 3.0’ – a super-value online poker event launched by the Universe Boss – Chris Gayle after joining India’s largest poker site ‘Adda52’ as its brand ambassador.
The first Gayle Storm featuring 50 Lac GTD prizepool took place in August 2018 and found a winner in Dinesh Kumar aka ‘danny_durr’, while the second Storm happening in October 2018 had a winner in Rahul Melwani. After roaring success of the first and second editions, Adda52 came up with the 3rd edition – Gayle Storm 3.0, which took place yesterday and guaranteed a hefty prizepool of INR 50 Lac for just INR 2500 buy-in. Coming on top this time was Sanish Chhabra aka ‘sanish21’.
Hailing from New Delhi, Chhabra outlasted 1847 (1017 unique +830 re-entries) in this event to claim his biggest online cash of INR 6,89,742. He beat Nuren Purohit aka ‘IMUNAGI’ in heads-up and a strong final table that featured the young gun Akshay Nasa aka ‘vibaks’ (8th for INR 78,509) and Aditya Chaudhary aka ‘cash9hai’ (9th for INR 56,449), who finished runner-up in Gayle Storm 2.0.
In heads-up, both players made a deal according to which the eventual winner Chhabra took home INR 6,89,742 for his 1st place finish, while Purohit walked away with INR 6,69,391 for his 2nd place finish. With his runner-up finish, Purohit added one more score to his already impressive online poker resume. He notched up his biggest score in April this year when he won Adda52’s Mega Suits.

While Chhabra has notched up several scores on adda52.com, including his several ITM finishes in ‘Beast’, ‘Sunday Suits’ and other tourneys, this Gayle Storm 3.0 win was his biggest score till date.
Talking about his grand win, Chhabra said, “It’s probably the best feeling winning such a big tournament and it surely gave a boost to my bankroll.The tourney had a great structure and the field was massive. I hope Adda52 keep on bringing such flagship tournaments.#keepgrinding.”
Talking about the field in this particular tournament, the eventual winner said, “The field was massive and quite competitive players. Beating such big field was quite an experience and biggest motivator for my game. And definitely I will be taking poker as a professional career thing in future.”
We also caught-up with Naren Purohit who chopped this tourney with Chhabra and he said, “It always feels good when you score well in a poker tournament. And when we are talking about Gayle Storm with that massive field and the kind of value we are getting, it was an amazing experience for me. I would definitely recommend everyone to play Gayle storm for the insane value it offers.”
Talking about the heads-up play, Purohit said, “The heads up battle didn’t last long because we both had almost the same chip stack and it was a long grind for both of us, so we decided to chop.”
