Posted On 07 Apr, 2018 0

IN SHORT: Aditya Sushant wins the opening event at April 2018's Baadshah Gaming Live.

The Baadshah Gaming Live tournament series began in Goa last night and is scheduled to be held between 5th and 9th April 2018. After the inaugural Baadshah Gaming Live series that took place in December last year, they came back to the Casino Pride in Goa for a second run.

A lot of India's top poker pros caught their flights to Goa and action began yesterday with the INR 10k buy-in warm up event. 37 survivors went through to Day 2 of the event, with Baadshah Gaming Pro Rajnish Kumar holding the chip lead. He came out early on Day 2 and was on a rampage, knocking out players for fun.

The top 15 players were paid out, with a minimum cash of INR 16,680. Although Rajnish was on a roll early on, he lost a couple of big pots and it was WSOP bracelet winner Aditya Sushant who took a massive chip lead going into the final table. Remember, Sushant won the inaugural BGL Main Event as well, for INR 7.65 lakh.

Final table chip count:

  1. Aditya Sushant - 646,500
  2. Phachara Wongwichit - 424,000
  3. Raushan Kumar Singh - 405,500
  4. Jasven Saigal - 315,000
  5. Ashish Naik - 299,000
  6. Vishal Bajaj - 290,000
  7. Rajnish Kumar - 181,500
  8. Madhav Gupta - 77,500
  9. Jaydeep Dawer - 41,500

Sushant increased his chip lead by eliminating quite a few players from the final table. He ultimately reached heads up with a 3:1 chip lead against Raushan Kumar Singh, and all it took was a few hands for him to claim the title. Sushant took home INR 3.89 lakh for the top prize, while Singh claimed INR 2.5 lakh for second place.

Final payouts:

  1. Aditya Sushant – INR 3,89,200
  2. Raushan Kumar Singh – INR 2,50,200
  3. Ashish Naik – INR 1,66,000
  4. Jaydeep Dawer – INR 1,21,000
  5. Vishal Bajaj – INR 1,04,000
  6. Phachara Wongwichit – INR 79,925
  7. Jasven Saigal – INR 66,025
  8. Rajnish Kumar - INR 52,125
