Welcome To the Adda52 Colossus Main Event Day 3
The second biggest buy-in event of the Adda52 Colossus High Roller Series, the 100K Main Event powered by Adda52, will play down to a winner today. Out of a field of 129 hopefuls, each of them putting up INR 100k buy-in just to compete, only nine players are left standing on the final day, which is slated to begin at 5 PM today here at the luxurious Deltin Royale casino in the beautiful Goa.
Those who remain have guaranteed themselves at least INR 3,31,100 out of the INR 1,17,39,000 prize pool, but the first-place prize of INR 33,15,000 and coveted Colossus title will be what’s on everyone’s minds today. It will be be a battle of the well-known live poker pros vs online regs as three of the nine are the well-known live players, while the rest are known for their online exploits.
Headlining the final 9 into Day 3 of the Main Event will be the former AOPS Main Event champion Faiz Alam with a monstrous stack of 22,40,000 chips. Coached by India’s poker super star Aditya ‘Intervention’ Agarwal, Faiz is a well-known MTT player and will be looking for his first-ever Colossus title. The MTT crusher was among the top stacks throughout Day 2. He won several big pots and eliminated some well-know players on Day 2 to make it to the coveted Main Event final table.
Although Faiz will be entering the final table with a commanding chip lead, the road to the victory for him is not going to be easy as he will be battling it out with the likes of the 2018 WSOP Main Event best Indian finisher and 2019 Colossus Warm Up runner-up Nishant Sharma holding the second largest stack of 9,80,000 and the WSOP bracelet winner and Spartan Poker Nikita Luther (9,55,000).
Others in contention are known for their online exploits and they include the likes of Amit Tejura (7,55,000), Ankit Jajodia (6,90,000), Ratul Steves (6,30,000) and Loveleen Singh (5,80,000 chips).
