In what seems like a very promising outcome for an Indian at the 2022 WSOP, could very well become a reality. Yes folks, poker pro Aditya Agarwal has progressed onto Day 3 of the Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em at the 2022 WSOP. The final 10 is led by Scott Seiver and Agarwal is on the seventh spot with 1,870,000 chips at his disposal to battle it out on Day 3 of the event.
The play for Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em at Bally’s and Paris has now concluded and will resume tomorrow with the final 10 players locking horns for the top prize. The winner and runner-up payouts are set at $320,059 and $197,806 respectively in the $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em tournament. What’s more interesting is that India’s Aditya Agarwal is in the final 10 and all eyes will be on this poker pro to see if he can win a bracelet for his home country.
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.
