BPT ME 2022: Rugal Advani Turns Chip Leader


The Baazi Poker Tour (BPT) March 2022 reached its final day today. The series will wrap up once the highly-anticipated ₹35,000 buy-in Main Event (ME) concludes. Currently, the final table (FT) has Rugal Advani in the chip lead (5,880,000). After multiple starting flights and the Day 2 action, the ME was a massive success and registered 900 total entries! 

The prize pool reached a grand total of ₹2.96 Crore. This is by far the biggest prize pool recorded for a ₹35,000 buy-in ME in live poker. It even surpassed the previo us record held by India Poker Championship (IPC) 2019 ME which generated ₹2.65 Crore with a total of 777 entries. 

There were 179 survivors who made it to Day 2. After 13 hours of play, the FT was set with the nine players standing. With Advani entering the FT with a sizable lead, the odds seem to fall in his favour. For those who may not be familiar with Advani, he’s an online reg and has shipped many prestigious events like the NPS#9 Megastack in June 2021 and APT #27 Monster Stack in August 2021. He also had an FT finish in the 2018 DPT Main Event and the APL Angeles City Road Series ₱ 8,800 No-Limit Hold’em.

Leading in second position is Nitin Arora with 5,580,000. He’s one of the few players who have managed to ship Spartan Poker’s Destiny multiple times. While his live experience may not be as much, his skills won’t disappoint!

WSOP bracelet winner Aditya Sushant is the heavy-duty name to watch out for. He’s right behind Arora in the third spot with a chip stack of 4,190,000. With a WSOP bracelet already in the bag and tonnes of live experience in hand, he’s on the favourites for the ME title.
