Stacks Almost Even

The Main Event heads-up is turning out to be an intense and nail-biting one. Although Prasit Chowdhury started the heads-up with a hefty lead, Amit Tejura has managed to put up a good fight and steal chips from his opponent. So much that the stacks are almost even now on the table, thanks to a couple of double-ups by Tejura. 

Heads-up Begins

Heads-upThe heads-up battle was set with the elimination of Kiran Bondu. The players went on a short break and have returned to lock horns and #UnflodGlory by winning the prestigious WPT Prime India 2023 Main Event title. Prasit Chowdhury is currently leading the heads-up with 16.2 M, while Amit Tejura has 9.4 Million at his disposal. 

Kiran Departs At The Third Spot

After losing a considerable pot in the previous hand, Kiran Bondu was left with just 1000K, which he pushed from the big blind. He was called by Amit Tejura, who had Tc 8h . Bondu flipped Ts 4d and the board brought 4s 8d 7d Td Jc . Bondu ended his deep run by taking the second runner-up place and setting the heads-up between Tejura and Prasit Chowdhury. Bondu cashed ₹42,50,000 for his finish.

  • Bondu: Ts 4d
  • Tejura: Tc 8h
  • Board: 4s 8d 7d Td Jc

  • Tejura: A 6
  • Board: A 6 K 2 9

Abhinav Out At The Fifth Place

Soon after the players returned from the break, it was Abhinav Iyer’s time to bid adieu to the WPT Prime India 2023 Main Event dream.  After losing a considerable pot before the break, Iyer returned to the table as the shortest stack. Kiran Bondu (A 8 ) raised the blinds to 500K from the small blind.

Iyer tanked for a while and made the gutsy call with T 9 . Bondu revealed As 8h. The board of 2 4 3 3 5 brought no relief to Iyer and he ended his run taking the fifth spot for a pay cheque of ₹24,00,000.

  • Iyer: T 9
  • Bondu: A 8

  • Chowdhury: 7 7
  • Dawer: A Q
  • Board: K 5 3 T 6  

 

Soham Pal First Player To Leave The FT

This was followed by Pal’s jams for 950,000 from the hijack. Kiran Bondu used one of the time bank extension chips and decided to call with just 750,000 left with him. Tejura utilises two of his time banks to finally fold in the end.

The board fanned to T 9 K Q giving Bondu a top straight and sending Pal away at the ninth spot.

The all-in action saw Dawer pair his Jack on the board of K   J   5 9 T and Rout’s pocket sevens were rendered useless as the board made no difference to the hand he held.

Kunal Patni Faces Early Bustout

Siddharth Jain opened with a bet of 800 on the flop of 4 Q 3. Patni called from the small blind and found a raiser in Rahul Marva who raised to 10,000. Well action was expected on a dreamy flop like that, and we saw Patni push his entire stack on to the table having flopped a flush with two hearts in hand (J 7 ). Jain folded here, but Marva made the call. The turn and river of Q 2 made no difference. 

Little did Patni know that Karva had flopped a higher flush with A2 in hand. Patni faced an early elimination, but hey, a single bust out is not stopping KP. He has fired a second bullet already!

  • Patni: J 7 
  • Marva: A 2
