Debapriya Manna “detulelungikhul” emerged as the newest APT India Online Series 4.0 – MAIN EVENT – champion! Manna outlasted the 209 final day players, coming from a behind at heads up against Sahil Mahboobani “ImHighIshove” to capture his first ever APT title, trophy, championship ring, and a handsome IN₹ 18.55 Lac (~US$ 23,345) payout. Congratulations to the newest champion!
Picking the action at three handed, Manna eliminated “shahzzadi” with a dominated ace to begin the heads up round. Manna was behind with 255 BB to Mahboobani’s 65 BB. It wasn’t until Manna rivered a flush (hand above) that the counts switched. On a flop X? 9♣ 8♦, Manna shoved 9♥ 7♣ two pair and got called by Mahboobani’s much higher 8♠ 7♠ trips. When the turn and river landed two clubs, K♣ and 10♣, Manna improved to a shocking flush to stay alive. From there, he stayed ahead and fifteen minutes later he shipped it with 6♦ 6♥ holding firm against J♥ A♦ (hand below).
Although Mahboobani missed his chance at an APT major title, it was still an outstanding accomplishment and overall series performance. At Day 3 of the festival, Mahboobani shipped the Megastack event for IN₹ 3.24 Lac. Adding this to his Main Event runner up payout of IN₹ 14.59 Lac, he walked away with a combined IN₹ 17.83 Lac (~US$ 22,440). Another player displaying fantastic results Sashank Chakravarthy “TheTamizhDurrr” with a 5th place finish at the Main Event to add to his two series side event victories.
