It’s Diwali eve and the festive season seems to be keeping players away from the online felts. The poker operators have been adjusting to avoid losses during the slow season by reducing the guarantees. However, despite the revision, most of the Tuesday flagships registered significant overlays.
Young Gun Anmol Mehta was the day`s top scorer and won PokerStars India’s Bounty Builder HR for ₹2.43 Lakhs, beating Rubin Labroo (2nd for ₹1.33 Lakhs) in heads-up play. Mehta also placed fourth in Spartan Poker’s Mega Stack – Millionaire Bubble for ₹1.02 Lakhs, adding ₹3.45 Lakhs overall.
The EndBoss runner-up finisher Dhiraj Lakhotia seems to be unstoppable at the moment. Last night, the poker reg from Darjeeling championed The Endeavour for ₹2.28 Lakhs after striking a heads-up deal with another Lakhotia from West Bengal, the #2 ranked player of the year, Manish Lakhotia (2nd for ₹2.23 Lakhs).
Spartan Poker`s Mega Stack – Millionaire Bubble was taken two-time Destiny winner Vishnu Khandelwal, who made away with a ₹2.22 Lakhs payday following a heads-up deal with Vinay Rajpal (2nd for ₹2.12 Lakhs). Khandelwal also cashed the Bounty Builder HR in 10th place (₹22,892).
Vikash Kumar, Ram Kakkar, Basant Kumar Singh, Biplob Rana, Ashit Sharma, and Umesh Sharma shipped the other Tuesday marquees.
