The World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2023 edition is turning out to be a blockbuster one. Indian pro Kunal Patni, the only Indian to make it to Day 3 of Event #59: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout, managed to make it to the final table and finally took the eighth spot at the event.
The event saw a total of 1,598 entries chipping in to generate a final prize pool of $4,266,660. Day 2 of the event saw 240 entries out of which the top 19 bagged and tagged and returned to lock horns on Day 3.
Patni was among the top 19 stacks who progressed to Day 3, with the 15th highest stack of 1,470,000 chips. He ran pretty deep and made it to the final table of the event. The APT Hanoi Hyper Turbo 8-Max winner eventually succumbed at the eighth place on the FT and pocketed a handsome $73,225 (~₹60,09,758) for his finish.
Patni was short-stacked when the action folded to him in the cut-off. He shoved all in and found a caller in Day 3 chip leader Barak Wisbrod on the button. Patni flipped J ♠ 7 ♠, while Wisbrod showed A ♣ 8 ♦ . The flop fanned out to 8 ♣ Q ♣ 9 ♦ , giving Patni a gutshot straight draw. However, the turn and river of K ♠ 6 ♦ did not favour him as he bowed out at the eighth spot.
The event has concluded after crowning Germany’s Robert Schulz as its champion. Schulz takes home his first-ever WSOP gold bracelet along with the top prize of $675,275. France’s Julien Sitbon was runner-up, who cashed $417,338 for his efforts.
