On Wednesday, the ₹16,500 entry buy-in FTS#17 Big Game had brought in a player-field of 440 runners, filling in a massive ₹14 Lakhs in overlays. The eight-handed final table commenced at 5 PM yesterday and took about 100 minutes to play down to a champion. The IOPC – Legends champion Amit ‘Kavipri’ Suresh Gehani (3rd for ₹7.36 Lakhs), former IOPC – The Crown winner PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh ‘LuckyBhai$’ Pal Singh (4th for ₹6.01 Lakhs), Vinayak ‘haayegarmi’ Bajaj (5th for ₹4.74 Lakhs), Arunkumar ‘denoi’ Singh (6th for ₹3.62 Lakhs), Vishnu ‘violator’ Khandelwal (7th for ₹2.59 Lakhs), and Arun ‘vazharmorghulis’ Sriram (8th for ₹1.95 Lakhs) earned the other FT payouts.

You can watch the FT replay below with IPC Director Peter Abraham and bracelet winners Kevin Macphee and Sam Razavi calling the action.

The FTS Thursday marquee, the ₹60 Lakhs GTD FTS#20 Monster Stack, drew 563 entries, making away with a relatively reasonable ₹3.70 Lakhs in overlays. Like all the other FTS marquees at the series, the ₹11,000 entry buy-in event was paused as soon as the eight-handed final table got formed following Himanshu ‘shambolic794’ Arora‘s exit in ninth place for ₹1.09 Lakhs.

Vaibhav ‘Beautiful Mistakes’ Sharma (3,949,175) has been in fantastic form these past few weeks and is the frontrunner to win the FTS Gold Medallion in the FTS #20 Monster Stack as he bagged the overnight chip lead. However, it’s not going to be a cakewalk with seasoned regs like Aniket ‘Takingsouls’ Waghmare (3,602,775), Brijesh ‘Sanu15’ Pratap Rao (2,941,117), Prakash ‘Robin Van Charsi’ Gupta (2,096,254), Sooraj ‘GotNoChange31’ Todi (1,778,897), INCOOP – 31 The Classic champion Shagun ‘icansuckout’ Jain (1,297,425), Anurag ‘CultOfPersonality’ Srivastava (843,058), and Meherzad ‘goblue’ Munsaf (381,299) in contention. The final table kicks off at 5 PM, and you can tune in to the live stream (on delay) on our Facebook page from 6 PM onwards.

The more prominent of the two other FTS events to name champions last night, the ₹28 Lakhs GTD FTS#21, logged in a 652-entry field falling ₹1.92 Lakhs short of its advertised guarantee. The former The Big Deal champion Ankit ‘Asymptote05’ Khattar was the last player standing and looted a ₹5.42 Lakhs cash prize, an FTS Silver Medallion, a certificate, and a hamper. The user ‘wolowizard’ placed runner-up for ₹3.42 Lakhs.

After last night’s win, Ankit Khattar has touched ₹65.05 Lakhs in recorded earnings on Spartan Poker with ₹20.09 Lakhs in site-profits.

The ₹11 Lakhs GTD FTS#19 generated a ₹11.07 Lakhs prize pool from a turnout of 738 entries. The FTS #2 Friday Special finalist Ram ‘JohnnieRunner-Runner’ Kakkar was the last player standing and won the FTS Silver Medallion for ₹1.51 Lakhs. He shook hands on a four-way FT deal with ‘TheRealG’ (2nd for ₹1.29 Lakhs), Aurkodyuti ‘ad87’ Das (3rd for ₹1.21 Lakhs), and ‘Siryourchipsplease’ (4th for ₹1.19 Lakhs).

PokerStars India’s INCOOP 2021 enters its fourth day today. Day 3 brought on another 11 events for players, and headlining the action was the ₹25 Lakhs GTD INCOOP – 29 Highroller. The ₹15,000 entry buy-in event clocked in 162 entries, experiencing an overlay shortfall worth ₹2.90 Lakhs. Goa-resident Myron ‘khAAbib’ Pereira overcame a stacked FT to collect a winner’s payday worth ₹5.04 Lakhs. The 2020 India Poker Champion Rubin ‘kornkid4’ Labroo placed runner-up for ₹3.90 Lakhs.

Thursdays on Adda52 are synonymous with the Godfather. The Thursday flagship returned with an amped-up ₹30 Lakhs prize pool guarantee.

The former SSS The Millionaire champion Saurabh ‘saurabh21’ Rohila was the last player standing and won ₹6.12 Lakhs. Wednesday’s Maverick champion Ankur ‘aceleration’ Sehgal was gunning for back-to-back titles on Adda52 and ended up placing runner-up for ₹3.62 Lakhs.

On Wednesday, the sixth of the 11 FTS 3.0 marquees, FTS#17 Big Game logged in a 440-entry field. The event fell a whopping ₹14 Lakhs short of its listed ₹80 Lakhs GTD and all eight finalists last night were eyeing a piece of this massive added–value.

The FTS headliner on Thursday, the ₹60 Lakhs GTD FTS#20 Monster Stack, was starting just as the FTS #17 final table wound up. The event tallied 563 entries, resulting in an overlay shortfall of ₹3.70 Lakhs.

The final table got underway at 5 PM, and you can follow the action being streamed (on delay) on the PokerGuru Facebook page.

MTT beast Vaibhav ‘Beautiful Mistakes’ Sharma (3,949,175) is leading the charge on the FT.

Prize Pool – ₹30,00,000

Places Paid – 49

The Godfather returned with a spruced up ₹30 Lakhs prize pool guarantee – up ₹5 Lakhs from last week. The move backfired for Adda52 given the heavy competition from FTS 3.0 and INCOOP as only 440 entrants signed up to play, resulting in a glaring ₹8 Lakhs overlay shortfall.

The recreational player Saurabh ‘saurabh21’ Rohila was the last player standing and won ₹6.12 Lakhs for his unbeaten run. Wednesday’s Maverick champion Ankur ‘aceleration’ Sehgal almost won an Adda52 flagship for a second consecutive day. His runner-up finish earned him ₹3.62 Lakhs.

Saurabh Rohila’s stats: Lifetime Winnings: 2.18 Crores | Lifetime Profits: 53.28 Lakhs

Mohit ‘thejokerrrr’ Mehta (5th for ₹1.25 Lakhs) and PokerGuru Ambassador`s INCOOP – 29 third-place finisher Kartik ‘Pegasus1505’ Ved (3rd for ₹2.50 Lakhs), and Naresh ’emperor457′ Veeravalli (6th for ₹87,500) also FT-ed the tourney.
