Alok Birewar Wins The 100K High Roller
The 100K High Roller at India Poker Championship (IPC) Megastacsk May 2022 has finally come to an end with chip leader Alok Birewar clinching the title for ₹40,71,000. Both players shoved all-in and Birewar flipped a Q ❤ J ♦ , and Arsh Grover showed suited connectors (T ♣, 9 ♣). The board opened to 5 ♣ Q ♠ A ♠ 7 ♦ J ❤ . On seeing the turn, both players came forward to wish each other ‘GG!’ as Birewar already flopped a Q-pair, and nothing on the river could save Grover. Grover was all smiles as he finished at the runner up spot for ₹31,00,000.
The two players went on a short 10-minute break before the heads-up and discussed a deal. The two pros would share the top two prizes and Birewar would grab a lion’s share of ₹38.4 Lakh since he had a greater stack while Grover would take home ₹31 Lakh guaranteed. The two then continued playing for an additional ₹2.31 Lakh, the trophy and IPC 100K High Roller title, of course!
