Stu Ungar Classic SHR Winner Bags over 5Lakhs


On Nov 8th, Uma Poker rolled out its second exciting tournament series, Primetime. The series started right after Diwali because we wanted to become part of someone’s festive happiness. Primetime series started on nov 8th and finished on Nov 12th. Hence, this fun tournament series lasted for 5 days.

There were many winners in the series, but the biggest winner was from the Super high roller event: Vikas Khaitan (a.k.a gomzi77). He bagged over 5 Lakhs in just 5 hours. Small field tournaments and quick play are two features offered by UMA Poker and most liked by all our players.


Poker is strategic, poker is fast and poker is fun. We added all these three flavors to compose Primetime series, offering speed, excitement and unbeatable challenges. Many new players became part of Uma Poker family and many existing players participated in this series.

Vikas demonstrated strong and aggressive play style by playing not only the cards he was dealt but also his opponents. He displayed perseverance and determination. He started 8/10 at the final table playing against some of the best in India. Ended up taking it home! He's quoted “I was down and out many times in this tournament, but came right back with my aggressive playing style and a little bit of luck. Last hand was pretty sick, my opponent barreled 3 streaks, with the river bet being around 4x pot. i had bottom pair. i just snapped, and it was the one time he was bluffing on the entire final table. Somehow i just knew"
