Rohit Madhur

In preflop action, Rajnish Kumar made it 20000 to go and he got called by Rohit Madhur to see a flop of {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}. Madhur checked and Kumar bet out with 20000.

Madhur made the call and saw a turn of {2-Hearts}. Madhur bet out with 26000 and Kumar tanked for a bit before raising it to 60000 to go. Madhur called to see the river {9-Clubs}.

Madhur moved all in and Kumar made the call. Kumar's Cowboys {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs} were beaten by Madhur's {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts} which flopped a set, turned a full house and managed to river an even better full house, and with that, Kumar finishes 2nd in tonight's event as Madhur goes home as the India Poker Championship's 5k Warm-Up Champion, after outlasting a field of 126 players.

The IPC returns tomorrow with the 10k Weekend Kickoff and the PokerNews India reporting team will be right here at the Royale Card Room at Casino Royale docked on the Mandovi river bringing you all the action as it unfolds.

Until then...

The lone woman left at the final table Minisha Lamba moved all in to Rohit Madhur's raise to 20000 from the button. Madhur made the call and tabled {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} which was ahead of Lamba's {10-Clubs}{5-Clubs}.

Bhavesh P knocked out in 4th place

[user204797] • Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

In preflop action, Rohit Madhur made it 40000 to go from the small blind and the Bhavesh P moved all in from the button for 125000 more. Madhur tanked for a bit before making the call.

Madhur {J-Spades}{J-Hearts}
Bhavesh P {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

The flop {3-Spades}{8-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} made Madhur top set which filled up on the turn {8-Diamonds} for Jacks full. A brick on the river {4-Hearts} meant that Bhavesh P was sent packing in 4th place as Madhur picks up a huge pot, catapulting him in the chip lead ahead of the other two players left on the final table.

The board {8-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{5-Hearts} made both players a pair each, but with top pair Talwar takes down that pot and Kasireddy gets knocked out in 5th place.
