If the excitement of live streaming action from the 2018 World Series of Poker (WSOP) has already woven its magic around your senses then Lungi TV’s WSOP Vlog Episode 2 will bowl you over! Produced in collaboration with PokerGuru, the second episode dives deep into the WSOP action and brings exclusive action and bytes from Team India’s biggest and the brightest stars competing at the WSOP right now.
In his signature style, Vikram ‘Lungi’ Kumar has covered some of the major runs made by the Indian pros in Vegas, apart from offering a peep into how the play is going on in the different poker rooms and venues, where players of international repute are competing through different events.
Kumar begins with catching up with Team PokerStars India pro Aditya ‘Intervention’ Agarwal along with his better-half- India’s First Lady of poker Shuchi Chamaria as the duo were entering the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino where Agarwal had to resume the battle with 28 others on Day 4 of $1,500 NLHE Monster Stack event.
“We’re going to try our best and let’s see what happens,” Agarwal said. He eventually finished 27th for $35,819 (~₹24.65 Lakhs).
Kumar then takes us to the WSOP Sit & Go area where huge groups were seen converging at different tables. Here, he ran into bracelet champion John Morgan at one of the tables.
Morgan, who has $312,241 in total WSOP earnings to his name had some good advice for the players at Vegas this summer! “Save your money and don’t play the Million dollar one,” said Morgan with a chuckle.
Kumar also caught up with India’s latest WSOP bracelet winner Nikita Luther who was just walking back from the Pavilion area. Talking about her journey in the $1,000 Tag Team event, Luther thanked her rail back home and admitted she was all nerves right since she won the bracelet along with Giuseppe Pantaleo, for $87,903 (~₹60.51 Lakhs) and said that it was chaotic playing the event alongside the Big Blind Ante $3K NLHE where she finished in 17th place for $18,495 (~₹12.73 Lakhs). “I hope for a crazy run in the Main Event,” Luther exclaimed.
Finally, Episode 2 wraps up with some live action from a PLO cash game where a pot was scooped by PokerBaazi pro Jasven Saigal and this time, Kumar was seen in front of the camera, rather than behind it! The ardent vlogger that he is, Kumar can be expected to deliver many more WSOP updates from Las Vegas.
