Adda52’s Colossus 2022 series which kick-started with the 50K Warm-up bounty event yesterday, has concluded its inaugural event of the series. The event ended later last night with pro player Shravan Chhabria gloriously lifting the title.
The event had record-breaking 98 entries as compared to the event at the last series in 2019. It had a prize pool of ₹31,36,000, as the top 14 players finished in the money.
Chhabria beat Pratik Kumar in a short heads-up that lasted just a few hands. In the process, Chhabria clinched his first ever Colossus title along with a top prize of ₹8.96 Lakh and the shiny golden Colossus trophy. When the final table of the top nine began, Chhabria had the third lowest stack but gradually managed to crawl his way to the top.
The event being a bounty tournament, the actor cum model cum poker player also cashed ₹1.5 Lakh by scoring a total of 10 bounties. On the final table, he first knocked out 2019 Colossus Main Event champion Aditya Agarwal at the ninth place, he then went on to bust Sreeram Immadi at the 6th place. He claimed his next victim in Rajesh Jagannadham at the third spot, to enter into a heads-up with Kumar holding a hefty chip lead. While Kumar had 565k at his disposal, Chhabria had a handsome 1.395k going into the heads-up. The two players discussed a deal, however, they couldn’t come to a mutual agreement and hence played the heads-up.
Since Chhabria had a commanding lead in the heads-up, the match between the two lasted just a few hands. Kumar pushed all his 3.5 Lakh chips all-in from the button holding 5 ♠ 4 ♣. Chhabria, who had Q ♦ 7 ♦ , called his opponent to see the board of 7 ♠ Q ♠ 7 ❤ 10 ♠ 3x. Chhabria got his winning full boat that helped him sail away the title.
Kumar finished at the runner-up spot for ₹5.68 Lakh and ₹60,000 for the four bounties he scored.
