Awnish Singh, had to compete against 456 other entries and in the end came out as the only man standing with the Main Event title prize of INR 35.04 lakh to his name. On his way to glory he had to face many poker favourites across the nation but the most prominent ones were his battle with Sailesh Lohia and Bhuvan Bansal. Awnish Singh looked determined from the start and his braveness in tough times helped him earn big on the table. His aggressive approach to each and every hand played, left others to either fold their cards or falling for his bluff which significantly gave him the charge in the game.
The second day saw the poker players eliminating like a house of cards which put Awnish Singh and Vidur Singhal for the penultimate battle.
