Nishant Sharma Champions Adda52 Colossus Main Event for INR 33.15 Lac!

Level: 30
Blinds: 125k-250k

Finally, it is all over! The MTT beast Nishant Sharma has championed the Adda52 Colossus 100k Main Event. He overcame 129 entries to win the INR 33.15 Lac first-place prize and his first Colossus title.

He entered the third and final day with the second largest second stack and played some top-notch poker, eliminating five of the eight players on the final table. He first busted Ratul Steves (7th) and then busted Ankit Jajodia (6th), Amit Tejura (4th) and Faiz Alam (3rd) to eventually enter the heads-up with the WSOP bracelet winner Nikita Luther who played really well but could not go all the way. 

The heads-up began with Nishant (61.65 Lac chips) holding a commanding lead over his opponent Nikita Luther (16.40 Lac). However, the latter showed some grit and overtook the lead but could not reach the finish line. She lost back-to-back in the last two hands. First, she was auto all-in for 85k with Jc 5d against the Qd 6c. The board ran 7h Ks 2c 5s Kh, giving Nikita a five pair to double up.

On the final hand, Nikita was on the button and shoved her 1.5 BB stack with 5h 4h. Nishant called with Kc 7c. The board opened Kd 9d 3h 8c 4d where Nishant flopped top pair to win the pot and the title. Nishant walked away with a whopping INR 33,15,000 along with the beautiful Colossus trophy. Nikita ended up as a runner-up and banked INR 21,00,000 and a stunning Colossus trophy!
