The final table (FT) of the feature tournament Saturday Special was a ferocious battle. The game was paused when the final table was set. Arsh Grover was sitting happily on the numero uno spot. Being a chip leader must have definitely brought a smile to Grover’s face. Other players who made it to the Saturday Special FT included names like— Sahil Chutani, Mohammad Azhar, Akshay Kapoor (twice in a row on FT), Rahul Kumar, Mithun Mahesh, Karan Radia and Manas Kalita. Let’s take a look at the nail-biting action that unfolded on Saturday Special’s FT.
Mohammad Azhar aka ‘Cupid stunt’ resumed the game with the second-lowest chip stack (12 BB). This pro busted at the 8th position with ₹97,600 in his pocket. Azhar who nailed the NPS Main Event on PokerBaazi for a massive ₹50.13 Lakh in June 2021 sadly bowed out as he could not work his magic this time around.
Sahil Chutani aka ‘$lim$hady19’ had the sixth-highest chip stack of 15 BB. This pro is an online reg, who came third in Spartan Poker’s Millionaire for an impressive ₹6.61 Lakh, and second in Elite for ₹4.48 Lakh. Chutani also nailed WPT Tuesday for a cool ₹5.4 Lakh. This poker pro fought hard but could not sustain as he left the table at the 7th spot for ₹1,32,800.
Akshay Kapoor aka ‘AustralianAccountant’ made his debut on the final table with Friday Special and now again on Saturday Special. This pro had the third-highest chip stack (45 BB) but that did not help Kapoor as he busted at the 6th spot for ₹1,80,800.
Rahul Kumar aka ‘sttoned’ with the smallest chip stack of 11 BB made the right moves to survive beyond what was expected. But the game was fierce and Kumar busted at the 5th spot for ₹2,36,800. Karan Radia was in the fourth position when the final table was set with 41 BB. But the game got intense, and Radia had to leave the table at the 4th spot for ₹3,00,400.
Arsh Grover who resumed the game as the chip lead fell short and ultimately busted at the 3rd spot for ₹3,71,200. Grover was a player who everyone had their eyes on. But nothing is defined in poker and the game changes with every hand.
In the second place, we have Mithun Mahesh aka ‘Zima Blue’ who cashed ₹4,95,200. This runner-up win of Mahesh is surely noteworthy. The heads-up game between Mahesh and Kalita kept everyone on the edge.
Finally, we have a winner in Manas Kalita aka ‘Silver555’ who grabbed an impressive sum of ₹7,79,600 in prize money. If final tables have taught us anything, then we know that the game is unpredictable, and every player gets a chance at victory.
