It seems that 2018 is proving to be a great year for our Indian poker players as they are making headlines of latest poker news India every other day with their outstanding accomplishments. Recently, Sahil Agarwal won Adda52’s Mega Suits and banked INR 10 Lac by defeating a record breaking volume of entries.
Winning The Mega Suits Title
The Mega Suits tournament was launched by Adda52 back in October 2017 with a guaranteed INR 30 Lac prize pool and INR 10 Lac for the winner. With the tourney proving super successful, the overall prize money for this monthly poker tournament was increased to GTD INR 40 Lac for the January 2018 edition. The buy-in for the 40 Lac GTD online tourney was INR 5500 and the event saw a record making entry of 742 players. However, it was Sahil Agarwal, who plays online with the name ‘Bhaijiii’, won the winning title and took home the top cash prize of INR 1000000.
A Tough Battle
The online tournament started at 8 PM on 14th January and the game continued for the next 8 hours. All players battled it out at the field but ‘Bhaijiii’ & ‘thegrinder’ eliminated the others to reach the heads up battle. The blinds running 30,000/60,000 came up at the final hand and thegrinder’ moved all-in for 729044 chips at the pre-flop. Bhaijiii held Ah-2s against his opponents 6h-Jh and made a call. The board ran 4d-8s-7h-Qs-10d and Sahil Agarwal shipped the Mega Suits title with his high cards. As ‘thegrinder’ finished in the runner-up position, he settled for a prize money of INR 620000. The top 45 players who made it in the money were also paid out with minimum cash prize being INR 14000.
Regarding his win Sahil Agarwal said, “It feels great. I have had a lot of final table finishes but closing one out is always special, that too one of such magnitude. I was short for the most part of the tournament. I was grinding my stack stealing some blinds here and there. Then, I decided to play solid and give up marginal spots because people seemed to be in some hurry of winning it. And it’s a long tournament you can’t win it with one hand. I sat there patiently waiting for good spots and it worked out for me.”
He added “The heads-up did last long as he was pretty short. But ‘thegrinder’ had a position on me and he took really good spots against me and played really well. Despite having a short stack, he gave me the toughest time on the FT.”
We congratulate Sahil “Bhaijiii” Agarwal on his remarkable win and wish to see him make more poker news daily headlines in future.
