Team India had several challengers thick in action with Rahul Byrraju clearly the standout performer, as he raised his 186,100 stack to a whopping 467,900.

Rohan Dhawan, Akshit Madan, Nikita Luther and Satchit Kapur, among the others who play poker in India, made it to Day 3.

Akshit Madan was another challenger who made a strong display on Day 2AB with his 47,400 stack further solidifying to 185,500 at the end of the day’s play.

Nikita Luther has been on a blazing run recently and made tremendous inroads bagging an impressive 150,500 in chips, all from a fairly modest 30,000 stack she began the day with.

Most of the Indians on this list regularly play card games in India.
