BPT Jan’20: Baazi Poker Tour-Online Kicks off in Style!


Day 1

The 7 Crore guaranteed Baazi Poker Tour January’20 Edition is finally underway! Last night we saw the series kick off its online leg on PokerBaazi.com with the 20 LAC GTD Kick Off event and the 35 LAC GTD Summit. The two events marked the first day of the BPT-Online Edition, which will run from Jan 2-5th. After a two-day gap, the series continues in its live format in Goa at the PokerBaazi LIVE room aboard Casino Pride 2 from the 8th-14th of January.


Kick Off (20 LAC GTD)

Event 1 of the much awaited series was the 20 LAC guaranteed Kick Off event which roped in a total of 281 players along with 228 re-entries. After a little over 8 hours, it was WSOP bracelet winner Abhinav “griezmann” Iyer who took home the title after defeating seasoned professional Sahil “ImHighIshove” Mahboobani heads up. The two players took home hefty paydays of INR 3,88,600 and INR 2,72, 400 respectively.

The final table of the event was filled with plenty of familiar faces in Rohit “rohit22rm” Mishra (3rd– 1,75,200), Gaurav “gaug17” Sood (4th– 1,29,600), Sanish “Sanish21”Chhabra (5th– 97,200), Sahil “bluffme19” Chutani (6th– 78,000) and Sandy “Ziigmund” Lamba (7th– 65,000).


Summit (35 LAC GTD)

Next up was the featured event of the day, the 35 LAC guaranteed Summit. INR 8250 was the price for a seat in the popular event, which attracted a field of 227 players along with an additional 214 entries. Much like the kick-off, this event went on for a little over 8 hours, comprised of a star-studded final table and saw two veterans of the game battling it out heads up. The eventual star of the evening was Arsh “Button_Hai_Bro” Grover, who came out on top of the heads up battle with Ashish “OMG_spew” Munot. The two players have plenty of scores and titles in the bag already, and added paydays of INR 7,03,500 and INR 4,93,150 last night.

Also making it to the final table were Nadeem “SpadeHunter” Basha (3rd– 3,17,100), Ram “mowgumotu” Kakkar (4th– 2,34,500), Ankit “d00mtr00p3r” Wadhawan (5th– 1,76,050), Laksh Pal “boomtlt23” Singh (6th– 1,41,050), Shravan “FishStars” Chhabria (7th– 1,17,600), Nishant “nishant177” Sharma (8th– 93,800) and Nikhil “rn275” R (9th– 70,350).
