Vinod Megalmani and Vivek Rughani record massive scores on Day 3 of PPL Autumn’18


PPL Autumn’18 Edition: Day 3

Day 3 of the PokerBaazi Premier League Autumn’18 Edition featured two huge events – both taken down by well-known pros. First up was the PLO Highroller Event which boasted INR 25 LAC in guaranteed prize pool. Popular high-stakes cash game regular Vinod “figureitout” Megalmani managed to get his hands on the title, along with a beefy payday of INR 5,93,325. Megalmani survived a field of 157 players and an additional 136 re-entries to record his first PLO Highroller title of the popular series.

Next up it was Vivek “Ishoveonyou” Rughani’s turn to make some noise, as he emerged victorious in The Vegas event which offered a whopping guarantee of INR 30 LAC. Rughani came out on top of a massive field of 401 entrants, along with an additional 263 re-entries to earn himself a jaw-dropping INR 6,05,900 payday.

Team IPN managed to have a quick chat with Rughani as he gears up for Day 4 of the series:

“It feels great to ship such an event it was a marathon grind as there were lot of entries due to popularity of PPL and the new software which is really top notch. I had a decent stack throughout apart from last 2 tables when I became short at one point made a comeback and was 2nd in chips at the ft. Cracked Rathod’s AA(nit) and then had to just apply ICM pressure as people were handcuffed due to the short stacks. Cheers and good luck to everyone for future events keep grinding the results will come!”
