Player in Focus: Akash Malik 0001

Akash Malik's first mainstream success in India was his 10k event win at the India Poker Championship way back in December 2010. An unknown quantity on tournament circuit, Malik was actually a cash game specialist who decided to give tournaments a go. From then on he has made a few scores on the live circuit in India and travelling the Asian circuit with frequent visits to Macau.

In recent times, Malik has also made a serious go at online poker playing under the moniker 'proFISHnal'. His recent and biggest payday till date was finishing 5th at the PokerStars Sunday Million in January this year. March has been a particularly good month as well with 7th and 3rd place finishes in the Super Tuesday and $215 Rebuy events.
