The PokerBaazi Premier League is back for the third time this year with a prize pool of over 4.5 Crores on offer. PPL Autumn’18 will feature an action packed week-long poker marathon comprising of 34 events including some massive Events with life-changing sums of money! Highlighting these is the 1 Crore GTD Main Event, which has been merged with The MoneyMaker. In addition to the whopping 1 Crore on offer, this event now features a reduced buy-in of INR 10,000. The previous edition of The MoneyMaker saw the prize pool climb to a whopping 1.39 Crores!
While winning the big ones is always something to hope to do, the true sign of a good poker player is consistency– be it big events or small. Constantly making the right decisions, managing to maintain a calm and thus productive state of mind, and knowing when to call it a day are a few qualities that define such a player. Every PPL Edition features a Leaderboard to reward the most consistent player, and remarkably, the first two PPL editions in 2018 saw the same player – Ramlakhan “Hitler” Meena – top the PPL Leaderboard!
The pride and satisfaction that comes along with this title is surely undeniable, and while others may have made plenty of deep runs in multiple big events, everyone’s got their eyes on Meena and his incredible consistency on the felts! With the PPL Autumn’18 Edition only weeks away (Oct 15-21), team IPN decided to catch up with the youngster and find out just what it is that he does differently!
“For me there is only one strategy: Focus Focus Focus! Being in a good state of mind so that I can keep making the right decisions it extremely important, and I am fortunate that I have a great set of friends who help me stay calm throughout my sessions and give me strength to keep at it.
Plus, winning the Yearly Leaderboard and a Harley Davidson would be absolutely incredible and an added incentive! It’s my dream bike and I really hope I can win this beauty! I’m definitely excited about the PPL and hope to do well in the Leaderboard race too!”
PPL Autumn’18 will feature a Leaderboard worth INR 10 LAC. The Overall Yearly Leaderboard, which rewards the winner with the all-new Harley Davidson Motorcycle, is currently led by “Hitler” with 6162 points. Not too far behind are tournament regulars “abhishek081190” and “kornkid” with 5393 and 4667 points respectively.
Satellites for various events including a complete package to the PPL Autumn’18 Edition are underway on the all-new PokerBaazi.com gaming client and app. Tickets to some of the major tournaments of the PPL can also be claimed at the premium levels of their revolutionary Baazi Rewards Loyalty Program.
Judging by the numbers from the previous two Editions this year, this Edition is sure to create quite a stir, and along with crowning a new champion of The MoneyMaker, we’re going to see one player inch even closer to that Harley!
