Game Over! Shravan Chhabria Champions the 50K Warm Up Bounty For INR 8.96 Lac!
Finally, it is over with Shravan Chhabria winning it to claim his first-ever Colossus title.
Shravan overcame a strong field of 98 entrants, besting Pratik Kumar in a very short heads-up match that lasted just a few hands. The win fetched Shravan his first Colossus title and INR 8.96 Lac.
Pratik finished runner-up and collected INR 5.68 Lac for his efforts. In addition to the top prize, Shravan scored 10 bounties, while Pratik won 4 bounties on his way to the runner-up finish.
Shravan, who was the third lowest stack at the start of the final table, began on a cracking note by busting the 2019 Colossus Main Event champion Aditya Agarwal in 9th place. His next victim was Sreeram Immadi (6th place). He then busted Rajesh Jagannadham in 3rd place to eventually enter the heads-up against Pratik Kumar with a commanding chip lead. The heads-up was over in just few hands. The final hand of the dual saw Pratik (button) shoving all-in for 3.5 Lac with 5s 4c and Shravan called with Qd 7d. The board ran out 7s Qs 7h 10s 3x, giving the title to Shravan Chhabria.
