He managed to take forward a massive stack of 439,000 which not only makes him the chip leader for Day 1B but also the overall second chip leader going to Day 2, only behind Alok Birewar (460k).

16 Levels of play were scheduled on Day 1B and quite a few known names progressed including Laksh Pal Singh (429k) and Rohit Mishra (414k) who round up the top 3 stacks of the night. Remember, the prize pool was of INR 3.36 Crore which is being distrobuted to the top 86 players and INR 60+L is being reserved for the winner!
