As is always the case on a Sunday, all platforms host their biggest signature tournaments on the day, given that it’s a holiday for everyone. Something like that happened on one of the biggest Indian platforms, PokerBaazi, when it hosted the BSS SuperStack INR 25 Lakhs GTD yesterday.
The tournament saw a total of 490 entries (181 re-entries). The buy-in was set at INR 5,500 and top 83 places were paid for a min-cash of INR 9,250. The player to ship the tournament which began at 7 pm yesterday and ended at 3.02 am today morning was well-known grinder Vinay B aka ‘Vinstill’. He took home INR 4,44,500 as the 1st place cash prize, beating ‘fish_calling’ in heads-up, who earned INR 3,09,750 as runner-up cash prize.
The champion, Vinay, has seen a lot of wins and deep runs online. Last month, he took down Adda52 Whale for a good earning of INR 4.71 Lakhs out of 222 entries. He has won Summit on PokerBaazi too before, in Nov. 2018 for INR 2.58 Lakhs. Last year saw him also win a leaderboard on Spartan, the Hot Tournament Leaderboard. Winning a leaderboard like this shows how consistent he is in his performances.
He has done good on live felts too. He finished 4th in 2018 Macau Poker Cup Baby Dragon Event for INR 27.1 Lakhs in February. The SuperStack win last night will see him add another wholesome amount to his bankroll, and he’ll be hoping to convert it into some great wins in coming time.
Among the well-known players and regulars on PokerBaazi yesterday and who also ranked in the money were IOPC Main Event winner Ashish Munot (8th – INR 45.5k), Abhishek Garg (9th – INR 45.5k), Rubin Labroo (11th – INR 37.25k), Gaurav Sood (16th – INR 25k) and Rohit Mishra (17th – INR 25k).
