To know how was his experience in the tournament we took some of his time to pose few questions.
Q: How do you feel after winning PPL 15 LAC GTD?
Pranav Bang: Since I couldn’t ship the HR(came 3rd there), I felt the need to take one down. And hence shipping this one felt really good.
Q: How tough was the field?
PB: Pretty interesting field. A good mix of pros, regs, and recs. Had a decent amount of reads on them.
Q: How was your experience in the tournament?
PB: Loved the structure. Great interface. And lovely emoticons. Great experience over all.
Q: Any special moment/hand in the tourney?
PB: There was this one hand which happened when I was literally bullying the table and that is when I misclicked and called 42o on the BU to an early position open and flopped two pairs and got to stack the villain who had an over a pair. The bullying earlier only made this easy.
Q: The MoneyMaker 1 Crore GTD event is coming soon, what are your thoughts for that? Will you be playing that?
PB: Of course. Waiting for it. Have two tickets already from LMS. Will definitely take a shot at it.
Q: Any tips or suggestions for fellow Baazigars?
PB: Never EVER give up. I was on a roll where I hadn’t cashed a single tourney in 20 days but I didn’t give up because I was confident about how I was always working on my game and kept learning.
