Ujjwal Narwal wins Adda52 National Poker Championship
After a slew of satellites, state qualifiers and 3 starting flights, Adda52’s National Poker Championship or the NPC came to a successful end with the champion being declared yesterday. The total number of entries from all the flights came to a staggering 4,241 entries (1,353 from 1A, 1,261 from 1B and 1,627 from 1C).
The last day of the NPC happened yesterday, where a total of 383 players played tooth and nail for the kill-shot first-place cash prize. However, Ujjwal Narwal aka ‘fourteenk’ denied them all the title and earned a staggering INR 16,00,000 out of the guaranteed INR 1 Crore prize money. A total of 382 were paid out of the prize pool, with a min-cash of INR 8,280.
He beat ‘tenfiveftw’ in heads-up to secure the victory. The latter won INR 10,50,000 as runner-up prize money. Rounding up the top 3 places was Kanishka Samant aka ‘kanishka27’ for INR 7,50,000. Samant also shipped the INR 10 Lakhs Europe package playing the Destiny 8.0 SNG Finale on Spartan last night.
The 6-figure pay-outs started flowing after ‘againstodds’ busted at 9th place for INR 95k. Finishing in the top 8 last night was also Siddhanth Kapoor aka ‘bullzeyepower’ (5th – INR 3,88,280). Kapoor won Spartan’s TGIF last Friday. Arjanveer Chadha finished after him at 4th for INR 5 Lakhs.
Coming to the winner, Narwal is a regular online grinder. Some of his recent achievements include PokerBaazi Endeavour and Add52 Whale, both titles earned last year. Him winning the NPC for that amount surely must mean a lot for him and some would even say that it is a life-changing win.
