Abhinav Iyer has once again made India proud with his performance at the World Series of Poker (WSOP). India swelled with pride as the country’s first solo WSOP bracelet winner moved to Day 6 of the WSOP 2021 Main Event, competing a felt as strong as 6,650 entries. Iyer, who had won his first WSOP gold bracelet in 2019, was chasing his second bracelet. He was the only Indian holding up India’s bracelet among the 96 survivors moving to Day 6. Thanks to his great run on Day 5, he started Day 6 with a massive stack of 5.85 million in chips but unfortunately could not go all the way.
According to the latest update coming from the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Iyer’s Main Event journey ended at the 60th position for which he received a whopping $113,800. His dream run was dusted by Australia’s Sean Ragozzini during 28th level in a hand where Jack Oliver opened with 240k and was called by both Sean Ragozzini and Iyer. The flop opened 5s 8h 3s where Ragozzini checked and Iyer shoved all-for 1,000,000. Oliver folded and Ragozzini called. Iyer held 5d 4d against Qs 9s of Ragozzini. Although Iyer was ahead on the flop, the turn Qh gave his opponent the lead, and the river 9h improved his hand further and Iyer’s dream run ended in 60th place for $ 113,800.
