The 2018 World Series of Poker (WSOP) has entered its final week, and Indians have an impact in the ongoing tournament.
Just a day after 9Stacks qualifier Nishant Sharma created history by becoming first Indian to crack top 50 in the main event, Aditya Sushant has made a deep run in Event #68: The Little One for One Drop- $1,000 +111 No-Limit Hold’em.
India’s bracelet winner of last year bagged the second largest stack with 125 players remaining.
Sushant now features top stacks at the end of Event #68: The Little One for One Drop- $1,00 +111 No-Limit Hold’em.
Sushant (1,341,000) was fielded among 4,732 total entries who registered themselves across three starting flights and now he is all set to move to Day 3 with the field whittling down to the 125 players.
Another Indian who is accompanying him in the event is 9stacks qualifier Sanjay Taneja (203,000) who has also proceeded to Day 3.
Sushant had won the WSOP bracelet in the 2017 WSOP $1,000 Tag Team NLHE along with Nipun Java and their duo became the first Indians to win the World Series of Poker bracelet.
This year as well he is having a successful WSOP campaign headlined by his ninth-place finish in the $1,000 WSOP.com Online NLHE Championship, where he pocketed $20,969 (~INR 14.40 Lakhs).
Sushant also followed up in $1,500 NLHE event where he finished at 161st place finish and banked $2,343 (~INR1.60 Lakhs).
Now, as the week heads to the finale in the Main Event, Sushant’s performance in The Little One for One Drop – $1,000 +111 No-Limit Hold’em may bring accolades for India and give us one more reason to rejoice.
Mayank Jaggi (82,500) has also qualified to Day 2 in Event #72: $1,500 Mixed NLHE/PLO 8-Handed.
A total of 4,732 players entered Event #68: The Little One for One Drop – $1,000 +111 No-Limit Hold’em across three starting flights and the second day of play later, only 125 have bagged their chips for the third day of play.
Aditya Sushant (1,341,000) is currently holding the baton high for India and is currently placed second in chips.
