Sanat Mehrotra wins INR 8 lakh in Adda52's Mega Suits
Adda52 is one of India's biggest poker companies and it only makes sense that they also host some of India's biggest online poker tournaments. Apart from their daily featured tournaments, they also have other flagship tournaments including the Adda52 Millions, Sunday Suits and others.
The Mega Suits is another popular tournament and the last edition of this tournaments was hosted a couple of nights back, as a part of their Sunday grind tournaments. It took place along with the Adda52 Millions where Akshay Nasa emerged victorious and took away the massive top prize of INR 6 lakh.
However, the Mega Suits was a bigger tournament on the night, with a buy-in of INR 5,500 and a massive prize pool that crossed INR 30 lakh. What began at 5pm on Sunday evening eventually ended at 2:16am the next morning, after a good long grind of over 9 hours.
Coming out on top of the field of 375 players was Sanat Mehrotra aka 'mehro2511' who took away a whopping cash prize of INR 8,00,300 for finishing first. 38 players shared the prize pool with a minimum cash prize of INR 13,590 but none won more than Mehrotra on the night. He beat 'turtle_trader' in heads-up, who had to settle for INR 4,59,040 for finishing second.
Gutshot caught up with the winner to ask him about the tournament experience. He said, "I'm primarily a cash player, but Mega Suits is my biggest single cash till date. Got the ticket through a satellite, played slightly loose-aggressive in the beginning before tightening up in the middle stages. I got lucky as I didn't suffer any major bad beat throughout. A couple of big bluffs, thin value betting and a KK over QQ gave me a big stack right at the end, which was crucial. Going ahead, will continue playing cash on Adda52 and in Goa along with a few occasional tournaments."
