Shivam Shukla Ships PLO Hyper Turbo At WPT Cambodia 2024


The World Poker Tour (WPT) Cambodia Championship 2024 is taking place at Phnom Penh’s NagaWorld Integrated Resort, which consisted of over 750 entries and created a record-breaking prize pool worth over $2.4 Million! 

Shivam Shukla, an Indian poker pro, grinding hard at the tournament series has brought glory to the nation after the poker player secured India’s second title. He went on to clinch his maiden live title against an outfield of 55 competitors by shipping the PLO Hyper Turbo and earned $3,455 (₹2.87 Lakh) in winnings.

Shukla had impressive performances in several tournaments before this accomplishment. He had reached the final tables at multiple events like the 2019 Deltin Poker Tournament, the 2023 APT Hanoi Billions, and the 2024 HSOP Grinder Series.

Before Shukla, it was Aayush Arya who won his first WPT trophy at WPT Cambodia against a field of 51 players to win Event #18: Deepstack and claim a prize of $9,152 (₹7.61 Lakh).

Other Indian players have also fared well in the premier event, with seven Indians powering through Day 1B of the WPT Cambodia Championship. Poker players Apoorva Goel, Kaushal Vasa, Ritwik Khanna, Aditya Agarwal, Dhaval Mudgal Vikaash Shah and Raju Jaruplavath did well. 

It is also worth noting that Amit Kaushik (8th place finish ₹1.26 Lakh) and Maulik Bharatkumar Shukla (9th place for ₹1.14 Lakh) fared well in the Superstack Turbo with strong finishes.

Kaushik is no stranger to Asian live circuit glory, recording five titles in the recent past, including the WPT Prime Vietnam Main Event Warm Up. The 28-year-old from Kurukshetra has reached the final table and will grind for the top prize of $441,546 (~₹3.67 Crore). 

Mudgal, a Pocket52 Team Pro, has started 2024 on a bright note with a 19th-place finish in the Mystery Bounty event for $2,765 while also cashing $6,054 on Day 2 of the WPT Cambodia Championship 2024. We wish the participating Indian players all the best and hope to see them bring glory to the nation.
