India is optimistic with Raghav Bansal and Yudhister Jaswal who have made it to Day 2 in WSOP Event #39 - $1500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout. After pros like Aditya Agarwal, Paawan Bansal and Nipun Java returned home, Indian fans are all in for R. Bansal and Jaswal.

Event #39: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout- Vlad Darie is leading the show with highest chip count. 

Event #39: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Two Indians - Raghav Bansal and Yudhister Jaswal are bracing up for some more action at the Day 2 of this WSOP event. Poker pro-Raghav Bansal has already impressed with his deep run in Event# 21. At the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MILLIONAIRE MAKER, Bansal finished 21st for INR 27.86 Lakh.
