Indian players have been enjoying some good poker at the international poker series. Several players are currently grinding at the World Poker Tour (WPT) Prime Cambodia 2022 held at the NagaWorld Integrated Resorts in Phnom Penh. Recently the No-Limit Hold’em (NLH) Mini High Roller event at the series concluded with two Indians Shardul Parthasarathi and Ankit Jajodia, finishing 8th and 5th, respectively. South Africa’s Anand Kumar shipped the event.
The two-day long event had 60 entries that generated a final prize pool of $116,400. The $2,200 buy-in paid out the top eight places, a min-cash of $4,190. Day 1 of the event had many famous players like Punnat Punsri, Florent Remi, and Indians like World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner Abhinav Iyer, WPT champions Zarvan Tumboli, Dhaval Mudgal, and Ashish Munot. The top 16 places made their way to Day 2 of the event, which saw the bubble bursting with the elimination of Taiwanese vlogger Yu Chung Chang aka ‘Nevan.’
All the eight players on the final table (FT) had ensured themselves a min-cash. The first casualty on the FT was Asia Poker Tour (APT) Vietnam Main Event winner Parthasarathi, who took home a pay cheque of $4,190. The last Indian standing, Jajodia finally busted at fifth spot and pocketed $8,148.
Jajodia shared about his progress on his Instagram stories along with a picture of the FT saying, “Another day, another FT! Busto 5th! Still hunting the glory but I’ll take it.” (sic). He tagged Parthasarthi in the story who later reposted the story on his Instagram account.
After Jajodia’s elimination, the remaining four players struck a deal, with Kumar, who had the largest stack, taking home the title and trophy.
