Aditya Agarwal and Aditya Sushant Cash Out at WSOP Event 27

Two Indians Cash out at WSOP Event 27

The Indian contingent at the WSOP has been in thick of action with a few familiar faces joining the fun these past couple of days.

India’s first WSOP bracelet winner Aditya Sushant made a deep run in the $3,000 NLHE 6-handed event. He began strongly and it appeared likely that he would go for gold again, but eventually he finished 28th for $14,364.

Poker pro Aditya Agarwal was also faring well in the $3,000 NLHE 6-handed event but, like his compatriot, hit the rails at 61st place for $6,191.

One of the most notable online pros finally clinched his first WSOP bracelet as UK based pro Chris Moorman shipped the $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for a whopping $498,682 taking his tournament earnings well above $5 million. Moorman earlier had made four WSOP final table finishes including two runner-up finishes in 2011.

Bracelet winner Aditya Sushant enjoyed a roller coaster journey in the event. He was at 28,000 chips at some stage but came back stronger to chip up to 75,000. The pro grabbed a few more pots to take his stack up to 125,000.

When the play was down to just 56 players, Sushant's chip count surged to 340,000! Just a few moments later Sushant knocked an opponent out taking his stack upwards of half million mark. However, Sushant lost a big pot in a flip and departed at 28th place for $14,364.

These players have already enjoyed success playing poker in India and are now channeling it overseas.
