Aditya Chaudhary wins The Bout on PokerBaazi

Posted On 04 Dec, 2018 0

PokerBaazi is a well-known brand in the Indian online poker industry. The company hosts a variety of exciting tournaments all over the year with lots of cash prizes up for grabs. Some tournaments are a regular feature on PokerBaazi and are hosted on a certain day of every week.

One such feature tournament is The Bout, which happens every Monday on PokerBaazi’s platform. It attracts a decent turn-out for an online tournament. The guaranteed prize pool of the Bout is INR 10 Lakhs GTD. But yesterday’s total 278 entries (143 re-entries) created a new prize pool of INR 11,12,000 for a buy-in of INR 4,400.

The player to emerge victorious in The Bout yesterday was Aditya Chaudhary aka ‘macchi1089’. The long 5-hour grind finally paid off for him and he cashed out INR 2,22,400 as 1st place prize among the top 30 who were paid, with the minimum pay-off being INR 11,676. Chaudhary also finished at 1st place a couple weeks ago in the Endeavour tournament on PokerBaazi, cashing out a similar 6-figure amount.

Gutshot got in touch with Chaudhary after his spectacular win. About the final hand, Chaudhary elaborated saying, “In the final hand I opened KQ and my opponent shoved. I called and he had a 33. I flopped a Q and eventually a runner runner nut flush for the win”.

Chaudhary commented “Just a general thank you to PokerBaazi. I don’t remember most of the tournament as I was multi-tabling and some of my friends were playing FIFA in the same room too. So, I was pretty distracted but managed to run good in crucial spots.

We at Gutshot sure hope this win adds a welcome amount to Chaudhary’s bankroll and enables him to play in more tournaments in the future and with a performance like this, it doesn’t strain the imagination to see him shipping a few more.

Other notables to withdraw cash in the Bout yesterday were Rajat Mahajan aka ‘happyfish’at 6th with INR 51,152 and Neeraj Kumar at 27th.

Chaudhary had also shipped a Destiny 5.0 tournament, an INR 20 Lakhs GTD tournament hosted by The Spartan Poker, in July this year, under the handle ‘S1ckB3at’. He overcame a field of 442 entries at the Destiny and took home a massive INR 5,85,650 in cash prize.
