Hello Friends, I am back with another blog. It’s been a while since I posted my latest updates, so I would like to share what’s going on in my Poker Life.
After a good World Series, I had a good few other live events as well – most notable among them was finishing 2nd in the High Roller in the DPT and finishing 6th in the IPC Main Event. We are back on the online felts, and yup, it feels good to be playing online for a bit now. There are lots of live options as well, but there is always a need to balance live and online. There are some excellent tournaments series that have been running, so I’m preferring to play these online series these days.
Plus, you need to keep improving your game as well. Playing live events, you tend to travel a lot, and you are not able to give yourself ample time to study. So this time playing online is also a good time for me to learn new things. The game is also evolving, so I have decided to devote my time to studying and playing online MTT’s.
Learning-wise, there are lots of new things that we are learning, and especially when we are learning from the best in the country, you get to learn the best poker in the world. I’m really thankful to Aditya Agarwal. I’ll be honest – there can be many good coaches, but you know what differentiates Aditya from others is probably his devotion towards his students. Whatever I may say for Adi is less because the passion he has for this sport and the dedication he puts in towards his students is impeccable. He is putting in lots and lots of hard work trying to incorporate study in every student’s life daily. I think no one in this country has more love for this game than Aditya Agarwal. I’ve had other coaches, I’ve seen other people, I’m not comparing them with Adi or something. It’s not that, but the only thing here I’m trying to say is, his love for the game is the best, it’s way beyond others, and everyone can see that now why it is so.
And it’s not just that he wants to keep adding to himself. He wants every student of his to be at par with him or even be better than him that would give him immense pleasure to see his students surpass him. He leaves nothing; he doesn’t leave anything undone to turn his student into a great player. He puts pressure on everyone; he wants everyone to be the best, to be honest. Yes, I’m thankful to him, and I think everyone, not just me, everyone in the PokerGuru group, is putting lots of effort towards studying, and you can see the results.
Hats off to my dear friend PokerGuru Ambassador Ashish Munot, he recently shipped the WPT Main event. My dear friend, someone I’ve known before PokerGuru, Ankit Wadhawan, has done splendidly as well. He has been on a winning spree making Final Tables on almost all the main events right now. Actually, it feels good when the young talent is also putting an effort, and I think the credit for everything goes to Mr. Aditya Agarwal. He makes a point that everyone does devote time to study every day.
I would also like to congratulate Maddy for winning WPT Deepstack event and Nadeem Basha being on a crazy consistency streak on online felts and finishing 3rd in the Millionaire. Congratulations to my friend Gokul Raj too for winning the Millionaire!
So I would love to end this blog by thanking Aditya Agarwal for being the best teacher in the world. He wants each and everyone to excel as much as possible in this field. I think everyone should incorporate study in their daily routine so that everyone can excel at this game. Online Poker and Live Poker are at high this point in India, and I’m pretty sure there are going to be lots and lots of tournaments coming up. So everyone best of luck and gear up and study well.
Let’s just compete and try to be the best in this game. Good luck everyone!
