Siddhanth Kapoor: Hitting The Bullzeye In Poker


Some of us know him as a techno disk jockey. Some of us know him as an assistant director. Even more know him as an actor, having played vital roles in films like Shootout At Wadala, Haseena Parkar and more. However, he’s best known as one of the most enthusiastic, caring and fun-loving members of our growing Indian poker community!

We’re talking about Siddhanth Kapoor aka ‘Bullzeye’ who is a frequent at live poker events and almost a daily online grinder, with several deep runs to his name. If there’s a High Roller taking place in Goa, you’re sure to see this person buying himself into the tournament. But in recent months he’s been restricted like millions of others, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kapoor is a good friend of Gutshot and he decided to speak to us about his poker play, his time during the pandemic and of course, a major online title he won recently. When asked about how he manages to fit poker into his daily schedule, he said, “I actually manage to find time for poker solely because I love the game so much. I just find the time somehow. I need 5-6 hours and that’s enough to get in a couple of tournaments on a daily basis. I’m not a cash games person; I like my tournaments only.”

Talking about tournaments, he’s recently been grinding across platforms including on Adda52 where the World Poker Tour (WPT) India Online recently ended. He waded through a field of 307 players in WPT India Classic ₹5 Lakh GTD to take home his maiden WPT title and ₹1.25 Lakh in prize money. Impressive, yeah?

“It feels amazing to be a WPT title holder and I honestly feel it’s just the beginning of a lot more to come,” he said about the win. Playing as ‘bullzeyepower’ on Adda52, he beat a number of known pros in that tournament to emerge victorious in the 6+ hour grind.

“Poker has just boomed for me ever since the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a good time and actually still is. Yes, a lot of online training and playing took place ever since the pandemic happened, and that’s probably some of the reasons I now own a WPT title.”

Prior to this tournament win, Kapoor won a few previous online poker titles and plenty of deep runs in daily features as well. However, he admits that nothing beats the excitement of being at the mecca of poker—World Series of Poker (WSOP) in Las Vegas. He recounted making Day 2 of the WSOP Main Event as his favourite moment in poker till date!

You would see this friendly face in live events in Goa (pre-COVID-19) and I remember last bumping into him at the India Poker Championship (IPC) in January 2020, where he came in to play the High Roller and if I’m not wrong, the Main Event as well. He bricked that series but is waiting to get back to the physical felts once again, especially after claiming to have improved his game since the start of the pandemic.

“I’m itching, literally itching to get back. Can’t wait. I just hope everyone takes the required safety measures and we can get back out there. Yeah, poker’s amazing,” he said about wanting to be at yet another live series in Goa and maybe even abroad, as he was even spotted at the European Poker Tour (EPT) stop in Barcelona once.

His love for the game is evident and we hope to see much more of ‘Bullzeye’ in online and live tournaments to come. Don’t forget to stay tuned to Gutshot because he may feature in one of our exclusive tournaments in the near future where we’re sure to place a special bounty on his head!
