Sushant, Ahuja, Joshi claim huge prizes on Adda52
Adda52 is undoubtedly one of the companies to have been in the top of the online poker scenario in India since a long time. Holding and maintaining that position, they have gone on to host some of the most popular tournaments and series for every poker aficionado’s pleasure. Yesterday too, the platform hosted three such big tournaments, which are as follows:
Aditya Sushant wins Mega Suits
The tournament began at 5 pm early evening and gathered a field of 298 unique players to the felt. It Iasted a little over 9 hours, ending at 2.06 am today morning and paying out top 55 players for a minimum cash of INR 13,500.
Emerging as the winner of Mega Suits last night was none other than Aditya Sushant who took home an awesome first-place cash prize of INR 7,20,000 after beating Aditya Choudhary ‘cash9hai’ in heads-up. The runner-up took home INR 4,20,000 cash prize, which looks like a first-place cash prize in itself.
Sushant has been playing poker since a long time now and is a well-respected entity in the community. He was the first Indian to bag a WSOP bracelet back in 2017. Among his recent achievements, he became the 5th entrant into Destiny 8.0 SnG Finale on Spartan last month. He has won almost all titles from all leading platforms like Spartan, PokerBaazi and Adda52 as well.

He earned his best cash of $75k for winning 2017 WSOP NLH Tag Team Event where he earned the bracelet too. Now, yesterday’s Mega Suits win is a significant amount and he’ll be looking to use it to further his impressive record and add a few more feathers to his cap.
