Anirban Das’ WSOP 2023 Main Event Journey: Best Ever Run By An Indian


Anirban Das has ensured his name goes down in the history of Indian poker. The pro achieved what no Indian had before. He surpassed an entry-field of over 10,000 at the most coveted title in the world, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event World Championship.

The closest that any Indian had gone to the WSOP Main Event title was Nishant Sharma, who finished at the 34th spot at the 2018 WSOP Main Event. Das, however, went on to surpass Sharma in this regard and finished 16th at the WSOP 2023 Main Event on Day 7 of the event. He pocketed a handsome $430,200 for his efforts.
