The Mumbai-based pro qualified for Day via flight Day 1G. Day 2 of the Main Event was a rollercoaster ride but Tumboli managed to spin the game event to bag the chip lead heading into the final table.
Tumboli has a stack of 18,020,000 chips. In his Instagram Stories, the high stakes pro also mentioned that the ‘Poker dream is alive’ and how he couldn’t take his eyes off the beautiful Main Event trophy.
Apart from the Poker Dream 8 Malaysia Main Event, Tumboli shipped the RM 1,500 NLH event. He fought through a competitive entry field to emerge victorious in this tournament. This title was Tumboli’s first live title win of 2024. The poker pro was seen all smiles while posing for the winner image. This Asian series also saw Pocket52 Team Pro Dhaval Mudgal grinding in various tourneys.
Coming back to Tumboli, before he made his way to Poker Dream 8 Malaysia, he was seen grinding at the World Poker Tour (WPT) Cambodia 2024. While Tumboli did not make much noise at the WPT’s Cambodia stop, he’s been making heads turn at the Poker Dream event in Malaysia with his solid play.
Only time will tell if this poker pro ships the Main Event and registers his name in poker history. We hope to see Tumboli bring home glory by nailing the Poker Dream 8 Malaysia Main Event trophy.
