'tuomez' takes healthy lead after NPC Day 1B on Adda52
Adda52 recently launched one of their biggest online poker tournaments called the National Poker Championship (NPC) which guaranteed a total prize pool of INR 1 Crore, where players would have to play three starting flights before playing the final day on 7th April 2019.
A couple of nights back, Day 1A kicked off in this tournament which has a buy-in of just INR 2,500. A total of 1,353 entries participated on Day 1A and yesterday, another healthy field of 1,261 entries participated in Day 1B, taking the total tournament field past 2,600 entries.
Yesterday's flight saw quite a few lesser known players finishing on top of the chip stacks, with 'tuomez' emerging as the largest stack of all. From the original field, a total of 109 players managed to survive all the 29 scheduled levels and bag their chips to return on Day 2. tuomez bagged 783,592 chips, way ahead of ‘sateeshaken’ who has a stack of 519,836.
A majority of the top 10 chip stacks belonged to anonymous players who haven't been heard of much on Adda52 in the past. However, there are quite a few other top names in contention. Siddhanth Kapoor aka 'bullzeyepower' is one of them, currently ranked 11th in chips after also chopping the TGIF tournament on Spartan last night.
Others who qualified include Akshay Nasa aka 'vibaks' (18th), Raag Fernandes aka 'fernz666' (20th), Avadh Shah aka 'cateyes' (22nd), Goonjan Mall aka 'gmtesting' (23rd), Tarun Goyal aka 'aggtarun' (44th), Chandan Arora aka 'darkfish15' (55th), Romit Advani aka 'ft83' (57th), Srihari Bang aka 'zombieballs' (62nd), Eka Vedantham aka 'Squashgod' (63rd) and many others.
Later today, Day 1C of the NPC will kick off on Adda52 at 8pm and the guarantee will come close to being crushed if we see another 1,300-1,400 entries. For all updates on the same and updates on Day 2 which will be played tomorrow, keep following GutshotMagazine.com.
