Abhishek Goindi Declared Winner Of Adda52 ₹65K High Roller At DPT
Abhishek Goindi was declared as the champion of the two-day long Deltin Poker Tournament (DPT) February edition Adda52 ₹65K High Roller. After hours of the intense gaming, he finally defeated a pool of 86-strong entry field and his heads-up opponent Pradeep Sharma to claim the title at the floating Casino Deltin Royale in Goa on February 8. Goindi won the top prize of ₹14.50 Lakhs.
Goindi has not been a regular name in poker off-late mainly due to his work at online poker company Adda52. However, he came back with a bang. This is his best cash prize win on home ground and second best in his career. He still has not managed to beat his best performance as the runner-up at the 2012 Macau Poker Cup HK$11,000 NLHE Red Dragon Main Event (2nd for $136,245 – ₹96, 97,306).
