With the weekend rolling in, the online action on Friday was electrifying. Grabbing the headlines was Ankur ‘Crimemastergogo’ Sehgal, who championed Spartan Poker’s The Elite for the second time last night for ₹7.68 Lakhs, making him the day`s top scorer. The two-time Millionaire champion Yudhishter Jaswal secured a runner-up payday worth ₹5.17 lakhs.

India`s first WSOP bracelet winner Aditya Sushant shipped Adda52’s The Ballers for ₹7.27 Lakhs beating Young Gun Gaurav Sood in heads-up play. Goonjan Mall, Md Zeeshan, Vinayak Bajaj, Ritwik Khanna, and Animesh Thakur dominated the other Friday marquee tourneys.

Here are the highlights!

 

Spartan Poker

Spartan Poker’s weekend fiesta, the ₹1 Crore GTD Millionaire, completed its second starting flight on Friday. Day 1B of the ₹5,500 entry buy-in event gathered 366 participants, and only 54 survived the day`s onslaught. The last of the April The Millionaire editions has registered 710 entries (Day 1A – 344 and Day 1B – 366) so far, with three more flights to go before Day 2 on Sunday.

‘haristo’ (262,166), who had bagged the third-biggest stack on Day 1A, booked a second Day 2 seat, only this time as the Day 1B chip leader. PokerGuru Ambassador Kartik ‘TheInternetKid’ Ved (253,740) and ‘Flahoolick’ (183,278) made the top three names on the Day 1B survivor`s list.

The site`s featured Friday night tourney, The Elite, offered an even better ₹33 Lakhs prize pool guarantee than last week. The guarantee was easily crushed as 363 contestants helped collect a whopping ₹36.3 Lakhs prize pool. The 9:30 PM tourney went on for almost nine hours before Ankur ‘Crimemastergogo’ Sehgal championed the event for the second time, netting the day`s top score worth ₹7.68 Lakhs. He had championed The Elite for the first time last October for ₹7.40 lakhs (his previous best score).
