With Spartan Poker’s India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) July edition underway in full swing, much of the virtual action was focused on the series. While some flagship events did witness an overlay, most of the IOPC tourneys comfortably surpassed their advertised guarantees. Let’s check out who the big winners were yesterday.

 

Spartan Poker

It was an action-packed day on Spartan Poker, and the show-stealer was the ever-popular ₹20 Lakhs GTD IOPC ReCharge. The event registered 1,195 entries and collected a guarantee-smashing prize pool worth ₹23.90 Lakhs. Chirag ‘Sa$sY_ThaT’ Bhardwaj championed the tourney for ₹3.61 Lakhs, after a three-way deal with ‘Unpredictable1’ (runner-up for ₹2.91 Lakhs) and ‘NutzHunteR’ (3rd for ₹2.68 Lakhs).

Over the past few months, Bhardwaj has championed several big-ticket events, including shipping Adda52’s AOPS Mega Suits ₹35 Lakhs GTD for a career-best ₹10.63 Lakhs on April 12, the Inception ₹10 Lakhs GTD for ₹4 Lakhs on March 23 and The Ballers ₹20 Lakhs GTD for ₹3.34 Lakhs on February 28. His overall online scorecard stands tall at ₹1.33 Crores.

The other headliner event of the night was the IOPC Destiny featuring a ₹10 Lakhs guarantee. A field of 654 runners gathered to participate, helping the tourney comfortably sail past its listed guarantee. In the end, the ₹13.08 Lakhs prize pool was distributed among the top 60 finishers. Former WPT champion Siddarth ‘PeterPunter’ Singhvi took down the event for ₹2.78 Lakhs, following a heads-up chop with Vikranth ‘borntrouble’ Varma, who banked ₹2.71 Lakhs for his runner-up finish. The Pune-based Singhvi works in the IT sector and has made good use of the continued lockdown. Since March, he has bagged numerous titles, and final table cashes, with his personal-best score coming in Spartan Poker’s ₹1.5 Crores GTD Millionaire Legends where he finished runner-up for ₹25.76 Lakhson April 5. He has moved up two places to #17 on the annual winnings’ leaderboard after this score with approx ₹1.41 Crores in winnings.

‘bluffer’ ran past a 249-entry field in the ₹7 Lakhs GTD IOPC FO, claiming the title and the top prize of ₹1.57 Lakhs. PokerGuru Ambassador Gokul ‘Super Kings’ Raj placed second for ₹1.06 Lakhs. Raj also final tabled the IOPC Destiny yesterday, placing fifth for ₹53,628.

Kunal ‘cvc’ Sharma (IOPC #29 NLHE ₹6 Lakhs GTD for ₹1.18 Lakhs) and ‘FunkeyFox’ (IOPC #30 Monster Stack ₹5 Lakhs GTD for ₹1 Lakh) were the other big Monday winners on Spartan Poker.

 

Adda52

With the Special Edition of the Adda52 Online Poker Series (AOPS) now in the books, the site returned to its regular MTT schedule on Monday. Headlining yesterday’s roster was the ₹10 Lakhs GTD Inception. A total of 366 contenders paid up the ₹3,500 buy-in, leading to a prize pool collection of ₹11.71 Lakhs. A low-to-mid stakes player Mandar ‘HighCardJ’ Darade was locked in a battle for the title with ‘2abhisingh.’ The duo decided to strike a deal, and Darade walked away with the title and a personal-best score of ₹2.62 Lakhs. The runner-up received ₹2.07 Lakhs for their efforts.

 

PokerBaazi

The Monday staple tourney on PokerBaazi, the ₹10 Lakhs GTD The Bout, was one of the marquees events that experienced an overlay. Despite turning in 362 entries, who paid the₹2,750 buy-in, the site still had to fill in a shortfall of ₹95,000. A player using the moniker ‘TanayParekh’ decimated the field and clinched the top honors, which included a winner’s paycheque worth ₹2.10 Lakhs, after defeating PokerGuru Ambassador Ashish ‘OMG_spew’ Munot heads-up. Munot pocketed an equally commendable ₹1.47 Lakhs for his runner-up finish.

The inaugural Indian Micro Poker Series (IMPS) also began yesterday. With buy-ins ranging from ₹100 to ₹500, this 14-day long series offers ₹1.5 Crores in guaranteed prizes.
