As the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 continues in full swing, the Indian contingent is putting their best foot forward. An Indian player has cashed in Event #21: $1,500 Monster Stack No-Limit Hold’em. It is none other than Aditya Agarwal. The pro player has cashed $38,231 (~ ₹29,84,027) for his 18th place finish at the event.
He was the only Indian who made it to Day 4 of the $1,500 buy-in event. The tournament saw a total entry field of 6,501 players who battled across three days. The top 39 places had progressed onto Day 4, which is currently underway at the Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas. Agarwal resumed Day 4 with a stack of 4,300,000 chips i.e. 14 big blinds.
Agarwal shoved all-in with his 6,300,000 while the other players folded. Francis Anderson called it from the big blind. Agarwal showed Sailboats, and Anderson showed AQ. The board fanned out A, K, 3, 7, and 9, giving Anderson an Ace-pair to scoop the pot and eliminate Agarwal in the 18th place.
Agarwal’s elimination brings an end to the Indian presence in the event. However, the Indian contingent is surely making headlines by grinding in other events of WSOP. Indian-origin player Ankit Ahuja had also qualified for Day 4 of this event with a stack of 9,125,000 chips (30 BB). However, he also busted early in the day. Ahuja took home a pay cheque of $31,033 for finishing at the 31st position at this event.
Currently, three players are left at the event: Francis Anderson, Mike Jukich, and Mateusz Moolhuizen. These three players don’t have a bracelet yet and will look to claim their first WSOP title in this event.
