Yesterday was a smashing Sunday on India’s No. 1 Poker Site – Adda52.com, with two marquee events – Big Slick and Mega Suits – taking place on the platform. Poker players from across the country turned up and participated in big numbers as there were big prizes up for grabs.
The showstopper event on the Sunday schedule – the 25 Lac GTD Mega Suits – drew an impressive field of 512 entries in total to comfortably crush its specified guarantee and generate a hefty INR 25 +Lac in the total prizepool, the lion’s share of which eventually went to the well-known online grinder Rajat Mahajan aka ‘Happyfish’ who walked away with the top prize of INR 4,22,649 after making a three-way deal with ‘Lemonade’ (2nd for INR 4,19,323) and ‘monaash1402’ (3rd for INR 3,74,028).
Mahajan is no stranger to winning big ticket tournaments. He has plenty of major titles and final table finishes to his name. He has won big on almost all major sites. Playing on Adda52 for more than two years, the online poker phenom has shipped several major online events, including Adda52 Millions, Maverick and Judwaa. Last night, he added one more win to his growing online resume by taking down his first Mega Suits for INR 4.22 Lac, which is by far his second best score on the site.
Post his win in the Mega Suits, we caught-up with the online crusher Mahajan and he said, “It certainly feels great to ship this event on Adda52. The last Sunday session I played (around 3 weeks back), I shipped Pokerbaazi SuperStack, so to ship major titles in back-to-back sessions is certainly surreal for me.”
“Throughout the tournament, I was just trying to hang in there and play solid preflop ranges, as I mostly never had a big stack until the final 2 tables where I came back from 10BBs to chip up to 70BBs. I made a few Ace high and King high calls on the river along the way. I did try to pick my spots to 3-bet pre-flop throughout and got lucky in one or two spots where I felt I personally played bad but was fortunate to be on the right side of the variance. When it came down to 3-handed, I started feeling a bit sleepy and my concentration levels were dropping, so when a deal was proposed by other players, I agreed for the same.”
Top 55 places were paid in last night’s Mega Suits with a min-cash of INR 11,520. The final table included some solid players in Abhineet Jain (4th for INR 192000), Kishor Kumar (5th for INR 1,28,000), and Sanat Mehrotra (6th for INRN 89600). Goonjan Mall ‘ (20th), Sumit Sapra (21st), Vaibhav Sharma (25th), Karan Radia (34th), Sahil Chutani (39th), King0fMerge (44th), Neel Joshi (47th), ‘IMUNAGI’ (48th), who finished 2nd in the Big Slick, and Sagar Choudhur (49th) were other notables who finished ITM.
