Bansal’s road to victory was not without its challenges. He squared off against none other than the PokerBaazi CEO Navkiran Singh in the final heads-up battle. Despite Singh starting the final table with a significant chip lead and successfully eliminating four players, he couldn’t clinch the win and had to settle with a substantial runner-up payout of ₹12,04,375.
The climax of the event unfolded during the final hand when Bansal boldly placed an opening bet of 80k. In response, Singh went all-in, leading to an adrenaline-pumping showdown. With Bansal holding 10h Kc and Singh wielding Kd 2d, it was Bansal who triumphed with a pair of tens, ultimately securing his position as the DPT October 2023 high roller champion.
Before this electrifying finale, there were several key moments in the tournament that set the stage for Bansal’s victory. One such thrilling instance was when Bansal eliminated Vishal Bajaj in third place during a high-stakes poker showdown. Another notable moment was when Navkiran Singh ousted Rajasekhar Puttamsetty from the final table with a thrilling double pair while holding As Js against Puttamsetty’s Qd Qc.
With a turnout of 47 entries, the DPT high roller event amassed a total prize pool of INR 48,17,500. Each player in the top six duked it out for their share of this bounty. A hearty congratulations to Raghav Bansal for his remarkable victory and well-deserved win!
The final table was set with Navkiran Singh in the lead, but it was Raghav Bansal who emerged victorious. PokerBaazi CEO Navkiran Singh made a grand entry into the final table, dispatching Gaurav Sood in ninth place and extending his chip lead. However, despite this early advantage, it was Bansal who ultimately took the title. Truly, this event was a thrilling rollercoaster ride of skill, strategy, and a little bit of luck. Until the next showdown, poker fans!
