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!
