India’s First WSOP Champion!
It was an emotional rollercoaster of a day for Aditya Agarwal as he became the first Indian to win a World Series of Poker (WSOP) title. After making two final tables in previous years, the stars finally aligned for Agarwal who defeated seasoned pro Sergio Aido heads-up to claim the coveted bracelet and $1,000,000 prize.
“It feels amazing,” exclaimed the overwhelmed champion after his victory. “I never gave up on my dream and it’s great to achieve it.”
Agarwal began his journey to the top in impressive fashion by winning a $25,000 buy-in high roller event at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas last year. That victory helped cement his place among the best players in the world and gave him the confidence to go all out at this year’s WSOP.
The final table featured some of the biggest names in poker, but it was Agarwal who managed to come out on top. He started heads-up play against Aido with a 2:1 chip lead and never looked back, eventually securing the title when his opponent made a mistake with ace-high.
“I’m very proud of myself,” said an emotional Agarwal after winning. “I’ve worked so hard for this and I’m glad that all my effort has paid off.”

When asked about his win, Raja said that it was still sinking in and that it was an amazing experience to play against some of the best players in the world and come out on top. He also thanked his family and friends for their support throughout his career.
