The third edition of 1 CRORE Guaranteed The MoneyMaker comes to an end, declaring Priyadarshi Rajnish as the winner, who walked away with the winner's prize money of 30 LAC. After him, it is Manish Jain, who has secured the position of the first runner-up, bagging prize money amounting to 20 LAC.

The MoneyMaker is India's first 1 CRORE prize money online poker tournament! Poker is not a very favoured game in India up till now (things are visibly changing with time though), unveiling an online tournament of this high value was really a big move on the part of But, Indian poker enthusiasts have shown their utmost support through their extremely high participation from every corner of India.

The excitement of this huge tourney was in the air long before the D-Day., which always prioritizes the Baazigars above all, had rolled out regular satellites and promotions to make the ticket to the MoneyMaker easily available for all, especially the Baazigars. The initial buy-in for this mammoth event was INR 11000.

The felt wasn’t very easy. All the entrants gave a tough fight to each other to bag the winner’s title. One of the most memorable hands was right before the heads-up battle between Rajnish and Manish. “PaperBoat” and “pottysingh” were dealt with 10d, As; and 6h,5h, respectively. The hand was a significant one and “pottysingh” lost almost all his chips to the eventual Rank 1, “paperboat”. The board flipped 3h Js 9h 3d 9c. “PaperBoat” called a massive bet with an A-high on the river and destroyed what would otherwise have proved to be a brilliant bluff!!
In all, the players securing the first 82 positions came in the money.

Here’s the top 5 results:

Place Players Prize Money
1 Priyadarshi ‘PaperBoat’ Rajnish 30 LAC
2 Manish ‘youngistan’ Jain 20 LAC
3 Anirban ‘pottysingh’ Das 10.76 LAC
4 Wilson ‘kalingkaling’ Yomso 7.85 LAC
5 Shashwat ‘shash26’ Agarwal 5.23 LAC
