Day 2 of the Baazi Poker Tour (BPT) Big Bounty has finally ended. Ujjwal Narwal has become the new BPT winner after nailing this ₹15,000 buy-in event. He laughed his way home with ₹8,46,500 in prize money. Narwal made his way to the top among 468 entries and took home a lion’s share from the total ₹42,58,800 prize pool.
Towards the end of Day 1, only the top 28 players survived and secured their spots on Day 2. Shashank Shekhar entered Day 2 as the chip leader with a stack of 6,66,000, however, he succumbed at the 15th spot for ₹55,100. Day 2 began at 2 PM at the PokerBaazi LIVE poker room aboard the Majestic Pride casino in Goa. Finally, after hours of head-hunting, the final table of the top nine was set, when Kunal Patni bubbled the FT at the 10th place for ₹70,000. The final table was live-streamed, and trust us, it was a dramatic, entertaining and a super action-packed one.
The first player to depart the FT was Gautam Sachdeva who departed at the ninth spot for ₹85,000. Sachdeva went all-in with pocket sevens from the big blind position and was faced with Unnikrishnan Nair’s pocket aces on the board of 6sKhQs6h2h which did no good.
Next in line was Bharat Vasan whose KsQc bowed down to Akshat Sharma’s AsQd on the board of Ac4cJh4d4h. Vasan departed at the eighth spot taking home a pay cheque of ₹1,11,900.
The next casualty on the table was pro player Ratul Steves who took a chance with his remaining three and a half blinds holding As5h against Ankit Bhansali’s Ah10c. The board opened to 10s8s9c2c ending Steve’s run on the FT. He walked away with ₹1,40,000 at the seventh spot.
Soon after the final break, Bhansali had to depart. Bhansali’s Qs9s fell short against Mohak Kapoor’s Js8h on the board of 8d4c2dKhKc. He had a decent run on the FT by stacking up a couple of times, however, he set off at the sixth spot for ₹1,66,600.
The FT chip leader Nair’s run ended when he shoved all-in from the big blind position with 10s5c and Ujjwal Narwal called from the UTG position with Js10h. The board of 4cQdAc8sJc sent Nair away at the fifth position for a payday of ₹2,00,100.
Sharma was the next casualty as his As4s succumbed to Narwal’s Kd7d on the board of 5dQs10sQd2d. Narwal hit a flush on the board and sent off Sharma at the fourth spot for ₹2,60,300.
Mohak Kapoor was next to exit leaving Narwal and Romit Advani for a heads-up. Kapoor went all-in with his Kh9s against Narwal’s As10d. The board of 6c7h8sAhKc was unfortunate for Kapoor as he departed at the third place for ₹3,80,700.
Narwal was leading the heads-up with 69% of the stack at his disposal, while Advani sat with a stack of 15BB. After a long break, the two players assembled for what can be called a one-hand heads-up. Advani went all-in in the first hand of the heads-up itself with QhJc and Narwal called with 8s8h. The board of 6h9cAh4h6s worked no magic for Advani as he finished at the runner-up spot for ₹5,92,500. Narwal also took home an impressive cash of ₹70,000 with 14 bounties to his credit.
