PPL #35 HighRoller 6-Max (70 LAC GTD)

PPL HighRoller WInner

While the game began with the BPT 16 Main Event Winner – Puneet “neo1” Dua as the chip lead, the ones who steadily played to build healthy stacks throughout the game were Shashank Jain a.k.a. “Westworld” and Anish “Illusionist” Patra. 

Adding an interesting twist to the event was missing player, Karan “mslpmfrt” Kapoor - he didn’t show up for the tournament but still finished fourth for ₹5.16 LAC.

The game went on for more than six hours, but it was only 90 minutes or so into the game that it boiled down to  two players - “Westworld” and Anish Patra. The fact that both played the heads-up game for 5 hours is a testament to their grit and determination. Kudos to both of them.

As the pros battled it out for the title, the game witnessed several twists and turns. Eventually, the board ran with 9h-10d-9-s-7h-Kc with Patra holding Ah-7s against Jain’s 9d-Jd. It was clear then that Jain won the title with three-of-a-kind nines. He went on to seize the first-place prize of ₹15.56 LAC!
