Shravan Chhabria takes down Saturday Shuffle on Uma Poker

Posted On 04 Mar, 2019 0

While it's growing at a rapid pace, the poker industry is still a very niche one in India. Now in this small industry, there are a few players who have continuously being proving their mettle, winning everywhere, regardless of whether the platform is live or online. One such player is Shravan Chhabria.

The guy is an absolute all-rounder. An actor, a cricketer and now, among the country's best poker players. Because of players like Chhabria, we know that the game of poker is not one of chance but of skill. He manages to get victories every now and then, the latest being the Saturday Shuffle on UmaPoker (Sign-up using code "GUTSHOT100").

As the name suggests, this tournament was played on Saturday on their platform, with a buy-in of INR 3,300 and a guaranteed prize pool of INR 7 Lakh. Kicking off at 7pm IST, the tournament went on for 4 hours and 53 minutes, and this wouldn't have been too long a grind for someone like Chhabria, who has played long, long online tournaments in the past.

Here, he outlasted a tough field on UmaPoker to take down the title as well as the first-place prize of INR 1,47,000. Playing as 'acesup44' on this platform, Chhabria made a healthy bankroll addition here and he could've gone out and had himself a happy Saturday night after this victory.

Chhabria has recorded a number of online victories in the recent past, shipping the very popular Adda52 Millions last month, and once before in December 2018 as well. Adda52 seems to be a happy hunting ground for him, having won a Godfather trip to Europe on their platform in September 2018.

Since UmaPoker is an up and coming online poker company, we may soon see increased guarantees and bigger winnings being given away. Who knows? Chhabria could be at the top when that happens as well. Until we hear more from Chhabria or Uma Poker, keep following for all things poker.
