₹25K MegaStack

Devang Yadav is the BPT ₹25K MegaStack Champion!

• Level 27: 30,000 -60,000,60,000 Ante

The Baazi Poker Tour (BPT) ₹25K MegaStack is now done and dusted and a new BPT champion has emerged. The final table of the event was running alongside that of the Main Event and things moved pretty quickly. Devang Yadav who had the chip lead at the start of the day entered the final table in pole position and rode his chip advantage all the way to the finish line!

It’s been a very profitable series for the Noida-based player who’s been playing poker full-time for three years now. Yadav primarily plays online and only days ago championed the BPT Online High Roller for ₹12.6 Lakhs. If winning two titles within a week is reason enough for Yadav to celebrate, Yadav has also pocketed the first-place payday of ₹12.65 Lakhs in the MegaStack.
