Aditya Sushant wins PokerStars Highroller 12 Lakhs GTD
Aditya Sushant is one of the veteran players of the Indian poker community. He was already a top-notch poker professional but came into the spotlight following his bagging the first WSOP bracelet for India back in 2017. He has plenty of online wins too, which include feature tournament titles like Spartan Destiny, PokerBaazi Summit etc.
Last night saw Sushant win another significant event in the scene, PokerStars India Highroller INR 12 Lakhs GTD. The tournament began at exactly 8 pm on the platform and attracted a decently-sized playing field of 162 entries (including 71 re-entries) for INR 7.7k buy-in.

Sushant has an impressive record to back himself. The current month of March saw Sushant win a significant online title, Adda52 Mega Suits for a wholesome INR 7.2 Lakhs, having also won a seat to Spartan Destiny 8.0 SnG Finale last month. In the live scenario, he finished in the money in the 2019 Aussie Millions Main Event. He extended his stay in Australia following the Aussie Millions and played one of the regular tournament offerings at the Star, Sydney and shipped it too.
Coming to the platform, PokerStars India started in April 2018 and has since then made major headlines. Recently, they signed up Nawazuddin Siddiqui as their brand ambassador and paved way for mainstream poker advertising by televising ads featuring the Bollywood actor on public channels.
