The Celebrations Club also hosted a rummy tournament called ‘Celebration Card Carnival,’ last month. Check out how the event went:
The tournament has kick-started with the organisers making the Shuffle-up and deal announcement. The players have taken their seats and have started playing.
The tournament has registered 41 players so far. The rebuy option is available to the players for the first one hour of the tournament.
The poker fever is at an all-time high, here, at The Celebration Club. With 44 unique entries, and just a few more minutes left for the end of registrations, players are flooding to the registration desk to rebuy into the event and take at shot at the ₹50,000 prize pool.
The late registrations have ended with a total of 44 unique entries and 46 rebuys. The players are out on a 10-minute break, post which they will resume at Level 7.
With a total of 91 entries, the top 12% will be paid. The organisers have decided to pay the top 12 players from the prize pool of ₹50,000. The top-place finisher gets ₹15,000. The min-cash will be ₹1,000.
The field is down to the final five tables of five players each. The game continues to get intense as the players are now eyeing the top spot.
A player named Dhruv Khanna bubbled the event by busting at the 13th place. Although Vicky Talwar busted at the same time on another table, his higher stack made sure he cashed. Talwar took the 12th place for the min-cash of ₹1,000.
The final table of the Celebration Poker Carnival is all set. The final nine players will now battle it out for the top spot. Here are the chip counts:
The second-highest stack, Aneel Asrani has become the first casualty on the FT in a classic AK vs AQ battle. Asrani was all-in with AK against chip leader Kedar Pradhan’s AQ. The board fanned out to 83JQ6, giving Pradhan a Q-pair for the win. Asrani walks away with ₹1,000.
The lowest stack on the FT, Jimit Pandya has taken the 8th place cashing ₹1,000 for his finish.
Mohit Wadia and Dwimidh Agarwal have bowed out of the tournament at the 7th and 6th place, respectively. While Wadia took home ₹1,500 for his seventh-place finish, Agarwal enjoyed a pay jump to walk away with ₹2,500.
William Tocher and Prashant Gopalkrishnan have taken the 5th and 4th place for ₹3,500 and ₹5,000, respectively.
The last lady standing, Kashish Mangtani, has gracefully walked out at the third place after her Snowmen couldn’t survive against Sarthak Goyal’s T8 on the T445Q board. The lady in black bowed out gracefully at the third place for ₹7,500.
With Kashish Mangtani’s bustout, the heads-up is set between Kedar Pradhan and Sarthak Goyal. Both the players seem to be in their poker element as they put their best foot forward.
After a brief swingy heads-up, Sarthak Goyal has taken the runner-up spot after battling out hard at the event. Goyal managed to chip up a few times; however, he lost a major portion of his stack in the second last hand. In the last hand, he was left with just the blinds as was all-in. He had Q3, while Kedar Pradhan had 45. The board brought K5827, crowning Pradhan the champion.
The chip leader continued to dominate the table and walked away victorious with the title and the top prize of ₹15,000 to his account. He outlasted a field of 90 entries to emerge victorious and claim victory among his peers. Congratulations, Pradhan!
