Posted On 21 Dec, 2018 1

Adda52 saw yet another one of their high-stakes feature tournaments INR 20 Lakhs GTD Godfather 6.0 come to a successful end yesterday. Along with having such a staggering guarantee, it also gives players a chance to earn a whopping INR 7 Lakhs package trip to play in the upcoming 2019 Aussie Millions, which will begin on 15th January. The nine consecutive Godfather 6.0 winners will play a Godfather 6.0 Finale SnG on 30th December and the winner from that will be the lucky one to go to Australia.

Yesterday’s tournament attracted a total of 448 entries (186 re-entries). For a buy-in of INR 5,500, the guarantee was surpassed, creating a fresh prize pool of INR 22,40,000. The tournament began at 8 pm in the evening and after a long haul of over 8 hours, it ended at 4:15 am today morning.

The winner to emerge from this gruesome grind was the well-known Sahil Mahboobani aka ‘ImHighIshove’, taking home an enormous amount of INR 5,48,800 as 1st place cash prize. He defeated ‘Ris0915’ in the heads-up battle, who had to settle for the runner-up prize of INR 3,24,800.

Just recently, Mahboobani earned his career best live cash for finishing 2nd in the World Poker Tour (WPT) India Main Event, winning INR 46,53,000 as runner-up cash prize. Mahboobani has also cashed out in a lot of online tournaments in the past, on Adda52 as well as other platforms. Gutshot congratulated Mahboobani on his win and he was elated to win this tournament finally, heading to his first major SnG of any kind, and will have his eyes fixed on the 2019 Aussie Millions package. He surely knows his poker and will be hopeful to continue this trend in the SnG Finale.
