Anirban Das wins third PPL Autumn title on PokerBaazi
The PokerBaazi Premier League (PPL) Autumn edition kicked off on 15th October and players all over the country were excited to be a part of this online poker series, which has completed five days so far, and it's fair to say that this has turned out to be one of their most successful series so far.
On Day 1, one player in particular did extremely well and that was Anirban Das aka 'pottysingh' who was the only player to win two titles out of the five tournaments contested on PokerBaazi that day. After a few more cashes during the series, Das was back with another victory last night, winning an impressive third title in the ongoing PPL!
It's difficult to win one or two, but Das has proved to be extremely consistent, bringing up his third title of the series, winning PPL Event #24: INR 5 Lakh GTD PLO, which was the last of yesterday's four scheduled tournaments. 287 entries including 140 re-entries took the prize pool up to INR 7.17 lakh and Das was the most profitable in the tournament, beating the field to take home the top prize of INR 1,50,675.
Gutshot caught up with the player who has been having a dream run on PokerBaazi at the moment. He said, "It was slow going after the first day where I shipped 2 tourneys. This one was special because PLO is a game that I am only starting to learn. Great structure and congratulations to the other players especially 'durrr' and 'aryanstark'."
With this victory, he also came up to #2 on the PPL Autumn Leaderboard standings, behind 'WhySoSerious', who shipped the HighRoller a couple of nights back. It's going to be a tough fight on the PPL Autumn edition leaderboard. Who do you think will end up victorious? Let's also look at some of the other results from PPL Day 5:
