BPT'19 Day 1 Sum Up

What a spectacular beginning to our marquee live poker event – the Baazi Poker Tour! As our poker room, PokerBaazi LIVE was bustling with all the who’s who of the Indian poker community, our six-day-long tournament series kicked off at 6 PM with the ₹15K buy-in event, BPT Kick-Off. The tourney attracted a massive field of 257 entries, collecting a gigantic prize pool of ₹36.23 LAC!

The game went on for more than 3 hours, witnessing more than 20 players hitting the rails in the last 90 minutes of play. Eventually, the field has shrunk down to a total of 13 players who will come down today (October 10) at 3 PM to compete for the first title of the series.

Sitting at the top of the chip counts is poker pro, Avadh Shah with an above-average stack of 6,16,000 chips. Shah relegated the others on his way to the top as he performed consistently well. However, it became clear when he managed to convene the double elimination of Shravan Chhabria and Ashit Sharma with his pocket queens against their pocket nines and pocket sixes.

The one with a difference of a few chips behind Shah is Charush Bhatia with a stack of 6,09,000 chips. They are the only two players boasting a stack above the 600K mark!

Other familiar faces of the Indian poker circuit were also in attendance such as Anant Purohit (1,30,000), Manas Kalita (1,85,000), Sahil Chuttani (1,88,000) and Yohan Patel (3,82,000).

The last player who couldn’t make it to Day 2 was poker pro, Laksh Pal Singh who bagged the 14th place prize worth ₹51,100.

The tournament has promised at least ₹51,100 to all the surviving players who made it to Day 2 but the top-heavy structure ensures that the winner will take home ₹8.52 LAC along with the elusive BPT crown!
