Star-Studded Commentators Panel
Lending their voice (and expertise) to the live-streamed IOPC action will be former bracelet champion Aditya Sushant, Goonjan Mall, Zarvan Tumboli, and Young Gun Kanchan Sharma.
One of our earliest Young Guns, Aditya Sushant, splashed across the domestic scene in 2010 when a chance trip to Goa had him run into poker pioneer Aditya ‘intervention’ Agarwal. The latter staked him for the IPC ₹25K Main Event. Sushant went on to win the event for ₹6.26 Lakhs, and the rest, as they say, is history. The former PokerGuru Team Pro was the first Indian player to win the coveted WSOP gold bracelet in 2017. He has numerous other accolades to his name, including a Millionaire title.
With his calm demeanor and technical prowess, Sushant will be a force multiplier as an IOPC commentator
Online entrepreneur, chess enthusiast, and MTT reg Goonjan Mall is a formidable opponent on the felts with an enviable record of online and live scores. He stands tall among the top winners of 2021 and is ranked #8 on the annual leaderboard standings.
Not a stranger to poker streaming, you can count on Mall to add color and valuable insights to the IOPC live stream – and could very likely make a few deep runs at the series as well.
Zarvan Tumboli is a well-known name in the domestic circuit. The Mumbai-based poker pro had won his first IPC title in October 2015 in the ₹10K Freezeout. Tumboli almost took a second IPC trophy home at the IPC August 2020 edition, placing runner-up in the ₹100K High Roller.
The energetic Tumboli has been competitive on the Asian felts and has numerous deep runs (and titles) at WPT Vietnam, APT Macau, and APOC Macau to boast of. Tumboli’s most recent win was in the ‘Poker For A Cause’ COVID-19 relief tournament on PokerHigh, where he generously donated all his winnings to the cause.
A former designer, and our only female Young Gun, Kanchan Sharma, has rapidly emerged as a top-class poker player with over ₹3 Crore in online winnings. Sharma had final-tabled The Millionaire and FTS 1.0 Main Event and more recently won the Deepstack Madness (Adda52) and an NPS Gold Medal in NPS#65 SPRINT DST (PokerBaazi).
She was also one of the leading forces in the PSL Season 3 (Virtual) Team Bengaluru Legends! This poker diva will turn up the glam quotient on the IOPC live streams.
