Amit Gehani Beats Top Pros As IOPC Legends Ends In A Deal


India Online Poker Championship’s (IOPC) 11th edition has been a spectacular success so far with four of the seven marquee tournaments already being brought to a solid conclusion. Joining the ranks of IOPC feature event winners like Harshad Barve, Piyush Jain, and Mohit Bhati is Amit Gehani who shipped the IOPC Legends tournament. This finally proves that the chip lead-final table jinx has been crushed in every way (twice now).

The high-intensity action kept many on the edge as the final table (FT) drama was live-streamed on Gutshot’s Facebook page. As Gutshot’s Director, Peter Abraham hosted the live-stream, commentators like Goonjan Mall and Zarvan Tumboli stepped in to catch the FT action unfold and share their thoughts about the same. The Legends FT was a bloodbath nonetheless and everyone was waiting for the winner to emerge. Let’s take a look at what went down.

The game began at a steady pace with all the six players: Arsh Grover, Sumit Sapra, WSOP bracelet winner, Abhinav Iyer, Rajeev Kumar, Armaan Kochhar, and Amit Gehani. First to bow out was Abhinav Iyer aka ‘hightr0ller’ who entered the FT with a chip stack of 22,35,988. However, while Iyer was able to hold his own for sometime, it soon ended when Arsh Grover defeated him. Iyer walked away with ₹6,65,122 in prize money.

Next in line to bust was Mall’s pick of the evening, Armaan Kochhar aka ‘space ace’ who busted in the fifth position for ₹8,79,6320. Kocchar had the second highest chip lead when the FT started, however, he was unable to keep up his momentum and busted right after Iyer.

Rajeev Kumar aka ‘AthenaVolt’ at 64 was the oldest player on the FT and also host’s Peter Abraham pick of the night. He, unfortunately, busted in the fourth position but still proved that poker is not just a young man’s game, something rightly pointed out by Peter Abraham on the live-stream. Kumar pocketed ₹11,10,340 in prize money.

Former Asia Poker League ambassador and IOPC veteran, Sumit Sapra aka ‘AAdicted’ had the second-lowest chip stack when the game resumed. This did not deter Sapra as he managed to build his stack to play further than expected. Sapra eventually busted in the third position for ₹14,70,840.

Holding on to his chip lead status was Amit Gehani aka ‘Kavipri,’ who went into a heads up battle with online pro Arsh Grover aka ‘BigggTymeR.’ After an intense match between the two, the event eventually ended in a deal with Gehani coming out on top and grabbing the biggest share from the prize pool. Gehani laughed his way to the bank with ₹30,00,510. While Grover took a pay cheque of ₹24,79,089.

Gehani was surely ecstatic about winning the prestigious title; this pro had mentioned how winning the Legends title would be his biggest achievement to date. He was also the favourite pick of guest commentator and IOPC January 2021 Main Event winner Laksh Pal Singh, who called him an extremely balanced and intelligent player. 

Final Table Recap:

  1. Amit Gehani aka ‘Kavipri’ – ₹30,00,510
