Our Very Own Baazigar Makes Us All Proud!
WSOP 2019 is in its full swing and as a result, Vegas is all lit and filled poker enthusiasts. Alongside WSOP, the poker capital of the world is hosting several other events in different poker rooms. One of the most-talked-about event is the Venetian DeepStack Championship, a flagship series of the Venetian Poker Room.
It was none other than PokerBaazi Founder & CEO, Mr. Navkiran Singh who outlasted a huge field of 183 players to win the title for $11,517 (~₹7.88 Lakhs). He also collected a spectacular 20 bounties worth $2,000 (~₹1.36 Lakhs) taking his total earning to approximately ₹9.3 Lakhs.
It was his love for poker that drove him to become a poker operator in the country and his international winnings prove the same. He has been a regular attendee at various events in Vegas. Last year, he posted three scores at the WSOP where he secured the 32nd position in the $3K PLO 6-Handed for ₹7.55 Lakhs. In 2019, he already started his winning streak as he finished securing the 985th place in Event #64: $888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold ’em for $1,729 (~₹1.19 Lakhs).
Final Hand Recap
While Singh held 2h-5s-6c-7h, his opponent had Ax-2c-Ax-Qx. The flop rolled out like this: Qx-3x-4x which meant Singh had an open-ended straight draw. The turn rolled out 5x and the river came out to be 9x, which declared Singh’s clear victory!
As he recalled the last few minutes at the final table, Singh shared that it was a “smooth ride”. He also added: “I think they couldn’t understand most of the time what I was doing. I could really take down a lot of pots without a showdown.”
Being the chip leader, he said “Once I had built a stack then it was just bullying them around on the table! I had so much coffee by the start of the final table that I couldn’t stop being in the game every hand. My VVIP would have been 90 plus!!”
Congratulations on winning the title. We wish you all the luck at the WSOP 2019.
