Ankit Ahuja’s bust out hand

It was a small blind vs button scenario when Ahuja (A 6 ) pushed most of his remaining chips in the middle when he bet 11,500,000. Lucien Cohen (pocket sevens) also known as ‘Ratman’ called from small blind position. The dealer fanned out K J Q . This kept the French player ahead. The turn and river of 2 and J did not help the Indian and his rival sailed through with his two pairs. Cohen did make a getsure of shooting a gun a Ahuja when the river card was revealed. Both the players hugged and Ahuja walked away. Ankit Ahuja and Lucien Cohen

Coming to Ahuja’s journey in the €1,100 Estrellas Poker Tour Main Event 2023, he qualified to Day 2 via starting flight Day 1D. Apart from Ahuja, Apoorva Goel grinding in this event. But this player busted on Day 1C. The European Poker Tour (EPT) 2023 also has other players like Paawan Bansal, Jagdeep Singh, Apoorva Goel grinding in the event. It would be interesting to see how these pros spin the games in their favour to make a splash at the prestigious live poker series. 

So far, Ahuja has managed to grab headlines with his incredible gameplay. Previously, it was Nikita Luther who had made heads turn with her gameplay. The female poker pro finished 16th for a payday of €27,930 (approximately ₹22,82,458) at the €1,100 Estrellas Poker Tour Main Event in August 2022. 

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner had also made it to Day 2 of the EPT Barcelona Main Event. But she was eliminated on Level 13 and couldn’t progress further. 

When it comes to Ahuja we hope this poker player ships the €1,100 Estrellas Poker Tour Main Event 2023 to bring home glory.
