It`s a great time to be an online MTT pro in the country with so many playing options and no dearth of high-value tournaments! While the majority of the tournament action revolves around the top 3-4 sites, there are a few new startups that are looking to disrupt the market. UMA Poker is one of them having entered the industry only last year, the incumbent platform has come in with a strong tournament-centric approach.
The site has successfully run several high-value MTT series in the past and is currently hosting its flagship UMA Series of Poker (USOP) that offers a whopping ₹3 Crores in guaranteed prizes. Running since July 17, the series is now on the final stretch with the ₹40 Lakhs GTD USOP Main Event set to close out the series on Sunday, July 28.
While the USOP has crowned numerous winners already, the two most recent flagship events were both taken down by well-known pros. The ₹9,900 buy-in Mini Main Event found a worthy winner in seasoned pro and high stakes player Arjun ‘Banana’ Pasricha who defeated user ‘Jacob’ heads-up to win ₹5.70 Lakhs. The other standout performance came from Shravan ‘acesup44’ Chhabria who took down the USOP Crazy 8 Freezeout for ₹2.57 Lakhs while finishing seventh in the Mini Main Event for ₹1.5 Lakhs.
