PokerBaazi.com’s “The MoneyMaker 4.0” concluded last night and found a champion in Guruprasad “fish_calling” Gupta, a regular in the tournament circuit who has made quite an impression in recent times. Ecstatic after the win, this is what he had to say fresh off a score of INR 30LAC:
“ MONEYMAKER 4.0… amazing day of my life……… thanks everyone…….”
The MoneyMaker 4.0 marked the 4th Edition of the recently launched 1 Crore Guaranteed Event and attracted a field of 659. An additional 497 Re-entries took the overall Prize pool to a smashing INR 1.16 Crore! Second place was taken by “PokerKeeda11” for INR 16.7 Lac.
Some of the notables who enjoyed a deep run in the event include Madhur “fishfry” Khosla (4th), Zarvan “Momsaid5bet” Tumboli (10th), Akshay “sherlock52” Nasa (11th), Pranay “Murderer90” Kapoor (12th) and Nishaanth “Shanni” Shanmughasundaram (15th).
The event saw one of the largest fields in the country and included a large range of players in addition to the ‘usual crowd’. These numbers stand proof to the fact that the sport is currently enjoying a rapid growth nationally, and its steady increase over the past few years means that the coming years will only be bigger.
Stay tuned as Team IPN catches up with the champ for an in-depth interview on the win!
