Previously, Agarwal finished in the runner-up position at the 2021 WSOP. This pro who is known in the Indian poker fraternity as the God of poker, finished second in the Event #76: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold’em behind winner Romain Lewis. For the bracelet winner it was his maiden one, but for folks back home in India, it was a bittersweet moment as Agarwal came so close to grabbing the coveted WSOP bracelet.  

Coming back to Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em, 113 players battled it out on Day 2 of the tournament despite a delayed start owing to technical glitches. Day 1 of this event had 752 total entries locking horns. The impressive number of entries generated a prize pool of $1,673,000.

Carlos Chang had shipped the Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em event at the 2021 WSOP for $364,589 and grabbed the prestigious bracelet. Chang fought a player field of 896 entries to grab the winning title and gold bracelet. One can only imagine how fierce the 2022 WSOP Event #3 will be for the final 10 survivors given that every surviving player from the final 10 is aiming for the gold bracelet and the lucrative prize money.
