      Event 3: Tournament Report

      Team Pokerguru Pro made a huge impression in Macau in Event 3 of the Pokerstars Macau Poker Cup, the HK$1500 Deepstack Event. Kunal ‘kcdesi’ Chandra came first in a field of 217 players to to take home HK$69600. Sangeeth ‘samohh’ Mohan also reached the final table, coming sixth after losing a massive pot on the final table in one of the sickest beats in Pokerguru history. When Chandra sealed his win, cries of “Pound it!” reverberated across the poker room. Team Pokerguru had arrived.

      After an initial grind of a few hours, Chandra moved up the chipleader stakes by knocking out two Team Pokerstars Pros. Celina Lin was the first kcdesi prey, when she opened from UTG to 4.5k with the blinds at 1/2k. Chandra shoved for 22k from mid-position with AJs, and Celina called with ATd. AJs held up, and Chandra doubled up.

      A couple of hands later, Chandra raised to 4.2k with A8s, Celina in the big blind shoved for 11k with TT, and Chandra was priced in to call. An ace of the flop ended Lin’s journey.

      A little later, with the blinds at 2.5/5k, Raymond Wu, in mid-position with a stack of 25k, raised to 12.5k. Chandra in the big blind shoved with ATc, and Raymond called with K3d. Chandra’s stack went to about 100k when he won this hand, and he ended Day 1 in the money with a stack of 113k.

      Mohan, whose fearsome table presence made players reluctant to call some of his light shoves, was also in the top five at the end of the day, with 111k.

      On Day 2, both players made it easily to the final table. At one point, Chandra held 45% of the chips in play, as his stack was constantly around the 500k to 700k mark. With some of the other players very conscious of the money jumps, Chandra played with well-timed aggression, running over the table. Meanwhile, Mohan grinded it out, picking spots to pick up the blinds while he remained card dry.

      With six people left and the blinds at 10/20k, the button, with a stack of 220k, raised to 55k. Mohan, in the big blind, looked down at KK. He shoved, and the button tank-called with T9s. The flop came K26 with two diamonds (Mohan had the K of diamonds). Mohan jumped for joy, and said “Pound it!” to his buddy Chandra, raising his fists in joy. But wait. The turn was the 7 of diamonds, and the river was a non-diamond 8, and a runner-runner straight had busted Mohan’s set of Kings. He took home HK$14,500 for sixth place, but the dream of two Pokerguru Pros being heads up had ended.

      Chandra did not let up, though, and continued dominating the table, having almost 80% of the chips in play when play was three-handed. It did not take him long to seal his win, and after becoming the first Indian to win a tournament in Macau, he said, “I’m really proud to seal this win for Team Pokerguru Pro. It’s epic. Pound it, bro!”

      He also mentioned that he was pumped up by the support from the rail from his fellow Pokerguru pros Amit Varma, who was killing the cash games, and Mohan himself, after Mohan’s epic bad beat. “I couldn’t have done it without my team,” said Chandra. “Ah, well, actually I could. But this is more fun. Pound it again!”

      Thought I’d say a brief “hello” to the forum.

      KC’s win at the Macau Poker Cup and all his Pokerguru supporters inspired me to register for an account here.

      Good luck to everyone in the Red Dragon and rest of the events. Great to see the success of players from India!

      Cheers,

      Event 5: Teams Event– 4000 HKD (Rs 23,167)

      Amit Varma and Sangeeth ‘samohh’ Mohan represented Team Pokerguru Pro in the team event of the Macau Poker Cup, and the very first hand they played led to disaster. While samohh consumed a beef burger, Amit sat at the table and found himself on the button. Starting stacks were 3000, blinds were 25/50, UTG raised to 150 and MP1 called. Amit looked down on pocket kings and raised to 600. UTG flatted, MP1 folded. The flop came 832 with two diamonds. UTG bet 800, Amit snap-shoved, UTG tank-called wth AQd. The flush duly opened, and samohh had to leave his beef burger and sit himself down with 3000 more chips.

      At the end of that level, other teams got 3000 extra chips, while Team PokerGuru remained short-stacked. They were card dry and spot dry, and eventually samohh pushed in level four with ten big blinds and A9. The gentleman to his left woke up with queens, and that was that.

      Meanwhile, in the true spirit of a team event, Amit also had a beef burger.

      Red Dragon Main Event Day 1A:Tournament Report

      When the main event of the PokerStars Macau Poker Cup, the Red Dragon, began, the PokerGuru team was nowhere to be seen. They had partied the previous night, consumed 54 pounds of sushi, 16 pounds of Sashimi, 14 bowls of Australian Wagyu Beef Rice, 818 cans of beer and one cold coffee, intending to sleep till late and play Day 1B. When he woke up at 2.10 pm, Team PokerGuru Pro Mihail ‘the beast from the east’ Stoykov realised that he and Adi ‘intervention’ Agarwal had forgotten to unregister from Day 1A. And Day 1A had begun. They were being blinded out. ‘F***, Aditya, you’re an idiot,’ the beast remarked.

      So the beast and intervention rushed to the event, which was underway with 188 players. They took a bit of time to acclimatize, but soon started building their stacks. Aditya was card dead for the first part of the day, and became short-stacked after a few unlucky hands. But some well-timed aggression saw him double up twice, and he ended the day with about 40k remaining, which was around the average stack.

      Mihail Stoykov, unfortunately, was not among them. He accumulated chips well in the first half of the day, but a card-dead period was followed by a hand where he was all in with ATo against K7s. His hand didn’t hold up, but he enjoyed the buffet afterwards, so there were consolations.

      Three PokerStars Team Asia pros – Celina Lin, Raymond Wu and Bryan Huang – played today and made it to Day 2. A total of 65 players remain from Day 1A with Jeremy MacDonald from New Zealand in the lead with 131,000 chips.

      Red Dragon Main Event Day 1B:Tournament Report

      Team PokerGuru Pro Sangeeth ‘samohh’ Mohan played exceptionally well to end Day 1B of the Red Dragon Main Event of the Macau Poker Cup with around 40,000 in chips, the exact same count as PokerGuru mentor Adi ‘intervention’ Agarwal on Day 1A. ‘I could have have more chips,’ samohh remarked later, ‘but I folded aces on the last hand so I’d have the exact same count as Adi. How cool is that? Epic.’

      Pokerguru Pro Amit Varma and Kunal ‘kcdesi’ Chandra busted out earlier, but had a few beers, so it was okay. Varma built his stack to 42,000, but got brutally coolered and went from 42k to 0 in two hands. Chandra, the winner of Event 3, and already a local celebrity, lost with AA vs JJ after getting it in on a flop of 269 rainbow. The turn was a jack. Bye bye, new kid in town.

      But samohh kept the PokerGuru flag flying high. He made insane hero calls, bold bluffs with air, and his pocket kings held up in a crucial all-in against AQs. (PokerGuru pros have been busted with KK eight times in the last five days.) After the last hand of the day – he didn’t fold aces, by the way – he yelled ‘Pound it!’ There were many volunteers, and much pounding was done. Then Team PokerGuru went off in search of beer, an endeavour that was, like much that this team does, remarkably successful.

      Red Dragon Main Event Day 2:Tournament Report

      It was a particularly brutal Saturday in Macau for Team PokerGuru Pro, as a combination of bad beats and lost coin flips eliminated all of them from all the events they played. Team mentor Aditya ‘intervention’ Agarwal began by showing his boys how it’s done, shoving with AQ, getting called by AJ, and managing to lose. Sangeeth ‘samohh’ Mohan also busted out of the main event shortly afterwards, losing a 200k pot after getting it all in on a Q97 board with Q9. He was up against a flush draw, and, well, life is brutal.

      Amit Varma got knocked out of the 6k freezeout in an even more brutal manner, raising with JJ, hitting a KJ2 rainbow flop (repeat: rainbow), and getting his money in against a gentleman holding Q6c. Just you guess what happened next. Just you guess.

      Kunal ‘kcdesi’ Chandra got busted when he shoved with AA on a jack-rag-rag-board, getting called by JT. Yes, that’s right: another jack on the turn.

      Amit then went on to recover his airfare in a particularly good cash game session, and the rest of the pros drowned their sorrows in an epic manner not fit to relate before a family audience. Then they went back to their rooms and slept, as the sun crept up warily in the distance, worried, no doubt, about some kind of weird-ass bad beat, like a galaxy of moons waiting to kick its ass. Shit happens.

      PokerStars Macau Cup Final Day:Tournament Report

      PokerGuru Pro Team (Amit, Kunal, Aditya “Mastermind” and Sangeeth) came in with all the enthusiasm needed to take down another title at MPC in final event (Event 8: 2.5K Bounty Tournament)

      Amit Varma was the first to fall and headed off enthusiastically to the cash tables. Kunal Chandra who was on the hunt for another MPC Title made some bold moves and didn’t mind putting it allin making his intentions very clear but a few unlucky hands and a card dead period got him short stacked and he was the next to be busted when he pushed with T 9 on a K9T flop and got a caller with J T. Turn was a Queen and well the bad beat story continued.

      MPC Event 3 Final Tablist Sangeeth “Samohh” Mohan made an impression with his aggressive play and was the first pro to claim a bounty! He outplayed his table and was even top 10 among the 200+ runners in event 8 at the middle stages but lost a few flips and found his stack dwindling. On the bubble Samohh shoved with pocket sevens and the player on the button woke up with pocket queens. With no help on the board, Samohh became the tournament bubble boy!(sighs)
