But this time my friends, they convinced me to play in this. This was the time to play. I’ve been in good form, I’ve been playing well, I couldn’t miss this tournament,” said Singh.

The $3,500 LHPO finale boasted a final prize pool of more than $3.8 million, easily exceeding the $2 million guarantee. The last 149 spots were all paid a minimum of $5,900 for a min-cash.
