As always, Sundays are action-packed on India’s No. 1 Poker Site – Adda52.com. Yesterday was no different as it saw several high-value online poker tournaments taking place on the platform. The biggest guaranteed event among them all was the 25 Lac GTD Mega Suits, which attracted an impressive field of 521 entries to comfortably crush its specified guarantee and generate a hefty 26.05 Lac in prizepool, which was finally shared by top 55 places with a min-cash of INR 11,723.
Coming out on top of the field was the young talent Neel Joshi aka who defeated ‘thepokerfaceblr’ in heads-up to win the flagship event for INR 5.02 Lac. It was not an easy victory for Joshi last night as the final table featured some solid regs in Jitendra Chordia (3rd for INR 2,47,475),Vishwanath Borhade (6th for INR 91,175), Rubin Labroo (8th for INR 52,100) and Gokul Raj (9th for INR 39,075).
A tournament regular, Joshi has already won several events on adda52.com, including Godfather 5.0. Last night, he added one more win to his poker resume by taking down his first Mega Suits on the poker site. Post his win, we got in touch with Joshi and he said, “I’d taken a couple of weeks off at the end of last year to travel to Germany. It feels good to get back into the grind on a positive note.”
Sharing his journey to the win, he said, “I had a lot of tables and my start wasn’t noteworthy, just hung around till well past the money. I got my hands on chips after winning a couple flips and was aggressive afterwards, finding good spots here and there. There wasn’t much looking back after that.”
The event saw many notables and some of them to finish ITM were Ayush Garg (10th), Rajat Sharma (12th), Deepak Bothra (13th), Sreekanth Narayan (16th), Abhishek Goindi (21st),Narendra Purohit (23rd), Jaydeep Dawer (24th), Ujjwal Narwal (26th), Ritam Bhattacharya (28th), Anil Adiani (32nd), Vaibhav Sharma (33rd), Raghav Bansal (34th), Yohan Patel (40th), Faiz Alam (43rd), Raman Gujral (47th), Guneet Kwatra (50th), Nishant Sharma (51st), Sumit Sapra (52nd), and Gaurav Sood (53rd).
