Ahuja, who has claimed the fourth spot in India’s All Time Money List is currently chasing the top spot and ME winner prize money worth $362,365. This pro with his $1.8 Million in live poker earnings will look to stifle competition as he grinds in Day 3 of the event.
Former EPT Main Event winners Ian Hamilton and Simon Wiciak were also in the house on Day 2 to ship the title, but for both these players, the day ended with their eliminations. Hamilton and Wiciak exited at the 34th and 105th positions for $6,800 and $3,875.

Now, the most important question remains. Will Ahuja ship this prestigious title and be crowned the Main Event champion? Only time will tell.
