Fast-growing online poker portal MadOverPoker (MoP) has been at the forefront of launching thrilling and entertaining tournaments. This past Sunday saw one of India’s first high-value knockout series, the Indian Bounty Championship (IBC), closing out a power-packed eight-event schedule on the site
The IBC commenced on December 7 and opened to much fanfare. The series played host to a total of eight events which boasted of a total prize guarantee of ₹15 Lakhs, all with a progressive knockout format with buy-in ranging from ₹630 to ₹3,150.
The series culminated on December 9, and Amarjeet ‘Ninjakar’ Singh emerged as the IBC Bounty Leaderboard champion. Singh scored across various IBC events and collected the maximum, i.e 67 leaderboard points to win ₹50,000 in leaderboard prizes. Subhajit ‘WaZir’ Mondal placed second on the IBC leaderboard with 50 points and banked ₹40,000, while Hriday ‘Sigma’ Mondal collected ₹30,000 for finishing in third place.
The 28-year-old player from Imphal, Manipur, Singh got his first taste of poker through Zynga during his college days. “Since then, I got myself into learning about the game. I love poker because it gives me freedom and intellectual challenge,” Singh told PokerGuru.
Singh, who has an M.Tech from Bangalore, collected a total of ₹93,342 in prize money by cashing in five events at the series.
Commenting on his experience on MadOverPoker, Singh said, “Two months back, I was referred to MadOverPoker by a friend and was pleased to see how easy and convenient was to join a play here.”
He further added, “It’s been a wonderful experience for me playing at MadOverPoker.The interface is great and user friendly. I like playing both tournaments and cash tables as they have good promotions and Leaderboard prizes.”
“IBC was one of a kind. I played the whole series and it took to a bounty of 67 players. There were highs and lows but love the experience. Glad that MadOverPoker provide me a platform to show my skills,” Singh said about playing the IBC.
Out of the eight tournaments that were hosted over the weekend, Ankit ‘ThugOfPoker’ Aryan and Aman ‘Dheettttt’ Bhadu, won two events each and bagged ₹50,220 and ₹97,755 in prize money respectively.
Moreover, while almost all the events saw their guarantees being crushed, the guarantees of IBC#1, IBC#2 and IBC#3 were overshot by a large margin.
Even though the IBC has concluded, the exciting promotions on MoP haven’t stopped. With the Daily Hand Race (December 8-22) already underway, players also have the second edition of Rehab ₹5 Lakhs GTD (December 23) to look forward to.
