Posted On 08 Mar, 2018 0

26-year old Kranthi Kiran who plays under the moniker ‘Milds’ emerged victorious in the Destiny tournament last night outlasting 417 entries. These entries crushed the 20L GTD prizepool making it into INR 25,85,000. Kiran is graduate from IIT Kharagpur and has worked as a software developer for a couple of years, before dedicating most of the time to poker. 

He is playing poker full time from last two years. He started playing poker in his final year of college with a group of friends and after graduation, he came across online poker, where he mostly plays cash games and few high-value tourneys.

Speaking about the Destiny tournament, he said, “I got myself into lot of good spots, Most of my preflop allins were good on the showdown. I was a chip lead for the most part of the tournament in the final table and never was at risk. Final hand is 99>Ace-King after a 4-bet call, hit my set on the flop.”

Parting words, “I will continue to work on my game and play mostly online, with many high-value tourneys and GTD's getting higher and higher every month. It's a good time to play online.”
