After 14 days of power-packed tournaments on the virtual felts, National Poker Series 2022 (NPS) concluded its events earlier this week. This year’s edition received an overwhelming response and even crushed some previous years records. However, the organizers decided to save the best for the last and host the final tables (FT) of three marquee events live in Goa. The Super Highroller, Main Event and Golden Rush are the three events whose final tables would be held live at PokerBaazi LIVE in Goa.
The FT of Super Highroller concluded yesterday with WSOP bracelet winner Kartik Ved nailing the title. The Main Event FT will take place today and will crown one winner out of the eight finalists. Similarly, the FT of Golden Rush will be streamed live from Goa tomorrow. Eight players have made it to the FT of the Golden Rush event and will battle it out to win a share from the humongous prize pool of ₹1 crore and the Golden Rush title. Let’s see who these final eight are.
Sankesh Jain aka ‘Sanky92’ will resume the FT with the highest stack of 4.9 Crore chips. Jain has a total of 20 titles to his credit, and interestingly, all of them are on PokerBaazi. Will he be able to follow Kartik Ved’s footsteps and continue the legacy of the chip leader shipping the tournament?
Nitin Tomar aka ‘Ladone’ sits with the second highest stack on the FT. He has eight titles on Spartan Poker. Not much of his playing history is available on PokerBaazi, will the NPS Golden Rush title mark his first ever PokerBaazi victory? Only time will tell.
