Abhishek Goindi Chips Up big time on Adda52
The Chip Up Series is one of the newer offerings from Adda52, where players can buy-in small and win big, similar to Spartan's Little Big Series and PokerBaazi's Grinders Series. Hundreds of players battled it out through this series, with a number of small tournaments lined up between 3-10th December 2018.
However, the company decided to save the best for last with the Chip Up Series Main Event INR 10 lakh GTD being played on the final day of the series - yesterday. The INR 10 lakh GTD Main Event saw a buy-in of just INR 1,100 and this led to a huge field of 794 entries joining the competition, which kicked off at 7pm last night.
It was one of the many Sunday grind high-value poker offerings in India and some really good players were a part of the action. However, only one walks away with all the fame and glory and last night, that player was chief poker scientist Abhishek Goindi, who plays under the name 'pomfret1989' on Adda52.
Going by his username, Goindi is nearing 30-years of age and this player made a handy bankroll addition of INR 2,50,000 last night for powering through the field and shipping the Main Event which came to an end after a very long grind. The final pot was collected by him at 3:07am this morning when he beat a similar aged 'amarjeet1989' in heads-up, who won INR 1,34,500 for finishing second.
In all, 82 places were paid out a minimum cash of INR 2,200 which was double their original investment. Some Adda52 regulars who cashed out included Pranav Bang (78th), Anujkumar Kodam (60th), Goonjan Mall (52nd), Sumit Sapra (50th), and others. However, the Final Table included many lesser known players.
Gutshot caught up Goindi after he shipped this tournament. He was pretty happy about his victory on Adda52, saying, "I was back to the online felts after a break. It's always great to get a W! I was chip leading with about 40 players left and it's always a great feeling to close out a tournament!"
