The Indian online poker scene has gradually developed into a full-fledged industry and has many reputed companies helming it, one of them being the ever popular Adda52. It regularly hosts events with staggering guarantees, along with tournaments with relatively low buy-ins to suit all kinds of pockets.
Yesterdays’ feature tournament on Adda52 was the Maverick INR 6 Lakhs GTD and this one has a buy-in of INR 1,100. The tournament started at 8 pm last night. It was a mid-stakes one but saw many well-known players from across the country in the field, each paying the buy-in of INR 1,100. The eventual prize pool came to INR 6,09,003, crossing the guarantee.
The winner to emerge from the grind was the very well-known and experienced player Dhaval Mudgal aka ‘dirtyzoso’. He took home the 1st place cash prize of INR 1,02,593 after beating ‘vineetj2004’ who had to settle for the runner-up cash prize of INR 70,224.
Mudgal is a highly accomplished player in the poker circuit of this country, live as well as online. He started his live career many years ago and has cashes from a lot of tournaments in the poker capital of India, Goa. Steadily building up his bankroll, he graduated to playing live in Southeast Asian tournaments in Macau, Manila, and other poker hubs.
He has also played at the WSOP in Vegas. His biggest live win came recently – the awesome 1st place finish in the Main Event of World Poker Tour (WPT) Vietnam in October last year for $109k (~INR 73 Lakh). He also has plenty of other live titles, as well as online on various platforms like Adda52.
Gutshot got in touch with Mudgal to congratulate him on his win. He said, “It’s always nice to get the first win of the year in the bag. I’ve recently increased my volume on Adda52 and it has luckily been rewarded with results, so that’s always great!”
The new year is anticipated to be packed with plenty of exciting news and surprises for the poker fans of this country. The first month itself has such a jaw-dropping line-up of events that is the stuff of dreams for poker players. Mudgal will see a welcome addition to his already fat bankroll and he’ll be hoping to sustain this winning trend in the future.
