Vaibhav Temani, A Disguised Poker Maestro


COVID-19 has made everyone dream, and quite often, of being on a tropical island, sipping Pina Coladas, and unearthing cookie jars! How about adding badges, scrolls, and a treasure chest to your dream! Some may say it is an extravagant dream bonus! But India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) made it all come true with their July 2021 edition of IOPC. The IOPC July 2021 edition theme was #MissionKhazana, and the event saw many industry insiders going, ‘really?’. With jinxes broken and the newbies taking the limelight, IOPC July 2021 was full of surprises and jaw-dropping moments! 

The most significant jaw-dropping moment was when our own ‘PavBhaji’ clinched the crown! A ‘newbie’ they would call him; but this ‘newbie’ warrior fought the biggest poker tournament, went head on head with the biggest names of the Indian poker fraternity, crushed the chip leader, and emerged victorious with flying colours, quite literally, to ship the IOPC July 2021 Main Event

Make sure you remember the name Vaibhav Temani aka ‘AllinPavBhaji’. We are pretty sure many people will! The ‘AllinPavBhaji’ started with just 55 big blinds against poker beast Aditya Agarwal aka ‘Yennefer’, who had a chip lead of 10:1. While all eyes were glued to the screen, clearly expecting ‘Yennefer’ to win, ‘AllinPavBhaji’ meteorically played his superlative ‘A’ game, beating the ‘Sachin Tendulkar of poker’. With a win of whopping ₹57,26,064, gold badge, a diamond badge, and a coveted diamond-studded 18K gold crown, Vaibhav Temani, from being our favourite ‘PavBhaji’ went on to become the ultimate treasure hunter!

 Temani’s gameplay began with the commentators exclaiming, ‘Oh! He opened,’ with discussions about his username, which were afloat until he spread his wings and took it all in his stride. 

As we caught up with Temani on a Zoom Call, the one thing that struck a chord was his humbleness! It was quite insightful to watch the ‘Golden Man of the Hour’ speak about his achievements, the final moment on the Final Table, and how he is taking it all in one at a time

A big congratulations on shipping the IOPC Main Event. How is the feeling of shipping the biggest marquee tournament in India? 

The initial week was extremely exciting, but I am now trying to get back to the routine as the excitement is waning. I have taken a break from the game. I am in my hometown, Jaipur, until the month-end, after which I will get back to the grind. 

What were you gunning for? The title, The crown, or the prize money? 

It was the prize money owing to its enormous value. Of course, it is terrific to have everything, but honestly, I went for the huge prize money. 

As the IOPC July 2021 Main Event winner, has your perspective towards the game in any way? 

No! The perspective has not at all changed. This is mainly because there is a very strong feeling at the back of my mind that this is just one tournament, though big. My skill level remains the same before and after the tournament. Read the full article on read.gutshotmagazine.com
