PokerGuru spoke to the man himself who shared his feelings with us and rather revealed an interesting tale as he was playing at the Poker Sports League simultaneously! Gupta said and we quote, “I registered the tournament while my team was playing the final day of PSL, unfortunately we couldn’t finish it well there. So, everyone was like grinding hard in our room.”

Speaking about the flagship event, he said, “It was a fun ride playing the tournament with so many entries. I was among top 10 chip stacks most of the time. Got lucky too in quite a few spots. Overall it was the fun playing the most prestigious tournament. Special shout out to Aditya Sushant for his guidance and many close friends who were there in our grind room #beabaazigar”.
