Feels like yesterday when I was so pumped up playing my first complete tournament poker series during the inaugural PokerBaazi Premier League last December. With a guaranteed prize pool of 12 Lacs and a 20k bankroll, it was something I had been eagerly anticipating for a while. Honestly, having been primarily a cash player online I saw it as an opportunity to brush up my tournament skills for the upcoming Aussie Millions more than anything else.
Fast-forward a year, four PPL’s and we have a whopping guaranteed prize pool of 80 Lacs (shattered into smithereens). 6 Lacs up for grabs at the Leaderboard along with an iPhone7 and 50k bankroll for the Leaderboard winner, the stakes sure have risen exponentially since the first edition, which goes to show the love and support you guys have showered upon us despite some technical and software glitches along the way.
With the staggering numbers in each event and the quality of players, I was sure I had to be at the top of my game to have a shot at that coveted Baazigar of the series. Kicked off PPL5 rather slowly on day 1 with just one min-cash and to see Sunit Warraiah, season 1 Leaderboard topper with a commanding lead was rather deflating but I vowed to do better the following days.
Day 2 was beyond amazing as I cashed in all events, finishing runner-up in two, third in the 5 Lac freeze out for 95k and 15th in the PLO. Achieving that kind of consistency through a long tournament session motivated me to repeat it the following days, which I managed with reasonable success cashing in 10 out of the 24 events and finishing at the top of the Leaderboard whilst facing some crazy competition from a number of amazing players.
As a player first and foremost, seeing the long hours put in during the PPL week being rewarded so well by Pokerbaazi was the reason I got drawn into playing all events during the first season and it has only improved with time. With TDS refunds as Real cash bonus chips, the amazing Leaderboard prizes, the special goodies for Baazigar of the series and the PPL After Party, which carries on for another 10 days, PPL time is party time for Professional and Recreational players alike.
Hope to see you guys next season that I’m sure will be even bigger and a better experience with the new software.
