After two months of non-stop high adrenaline action, first across the IOPC and then APT Online India and the WPT Online India stops, yesterday brought players a well-deserved break.
That said, the WPTOI excitement is not yet over. The tournaments are done with, but Adda52 was scheduled to run the final chapter of the series – the ₹7 Lakhs GTD WPT Winners SNG and the ₹3 Lakhs GTD WPT Bubble SNG yesterday. However, both SNGs have been moved to today.
Headlining the Monday winners was the former Maverick champion Debapriya Manna who bested a 389-strong field to win Adda52’s Iron Man for ₹1.98 Lakhs. Juli Kumari came second for ₹1.20 Lakhs. She also won the Sundown Adda for ₹18,036, collectively earning 1.45 Lakhs.
Faiz Alam cashed in all the flagship offerings and most prominently won PokerBaazi’s The Big Show for ₹1.46 Lakhs after striking a three-way deal with ‘Instamuck’ (2nd for ₹1.09 Lakhs) and ‘slyblazer’ (3rd for ₹1 Lakh).
Sushil Kumar dominated the show on Spartan Poker, where he championed the ReCharge for ₹1.41 Lakhs – his second time winning the event. Kumar struck a three-way deal with Siddhanth Kapoor (2nd for ₹1.12 Lakhs) and ‘royalflush84’ (3rd for ₹1.12 Lakhs).
Sreeharsha Boneni came out trumps in PokerStars India Battle Royale, winning the event for the third time last night for ₹1.29 Lakhs after defeating poker streamer Shivam Jain (2nd for ₹60,597) heads-up.
Prateek Ajmani won the Daily SPRINT on PokerBaazi for ₹1.08 Lakhs, with the long-time circuit regular and poker coach Kanishka Samant taking second place for ₹96,630.
Young Gun Karan Radia took down the Voyager for ₹95,500, with ‘Adit8783’ placing runner-up for ₹57,873.
Rising Star Aman Parakh shipped two late-night marquees. He took down PokerBaazi’s Daily Night SPRINT for ₹48,000, also winning the Adda52-hosted Nighttide DST Adda for ₹34,191. Like Alam, he scored in most of the Monday flagships, raking in ₹1.14 Lakhs cumulatively to storm his way past the ₹3 Crore mark in online winnings.
Clinton Tavares, Devinder Bahia, Vikram Pratapdan Langa & Abhishek Sonu won the other Monday marquees.
Here are the Monday highlights!
Spearheading the Monday action on Spartan Poker was the ₹8 Lakhs GTD ReCharge. The ₹2,200 entry buy-in event attracted 423 entrants, and the top 39 places got a share from the ₹8.46 Lakhs prize pool. A three-way deal saw the former Sunday Superstack fifth-place finisher Sushil ‘lex_veldi82’ Kumar taking down the ReCharge title for the second time last night for ₹1.41 Lakhs. Actor, DJ, and poker player Siddhanth ‘Liu Kang’ Kapoor (2nd for ₹1.12 Lakhs) and ‘royalflush84’ (3rd for ₹1.12 Lakhs) were the other beneficiaries of the deal.
Sushil Kumar had won the ReCharge previously on July 5 for ₹1.74 Lakhs. His stats: Lifetime Winnings: ₹66.54 Lakhs | Lifetime Profits: 12.12 Lakh
Aditya ‘konstantinn’ Singh crossed the money line in three events on Monday, netting a cumulative ₹75,758.
His scores include:
> 6th in Spartan Poker’s ReCharge for ₹39,508
> 5th in PokerBaazi’s Daily Sprint 7-Max for ₹30,250
> 24th in Adda52’s Iron Man for ₹6,000
The IOPC#129 Saturday Prime champion ‘Giraldik’ shipped Spartan Poker`s second Monday marquee, the ₹4.50 Lakhs GTD DeepStack for ₹87,705. Amit ‘Penguin071’ Gaikwad came second for ₹55,710. The ₹1,100 entry buy-in event logged in a total of 450 entries – the exact count needed to break even on its listed guarantee.
The champion now has ₹14.25 Lakhs in recorded earnings on Spartan Poker with ₹8.35 Lakhs in site-profits.
Devinder ‘Greko’ Bahia (Won Monster Stack ₹2.5 Lakhs GTD for ₹45,479), Vikram ‘Tatvmasi’ Pratapdan Langa (Won Night Rider – Monster Stack ₹2.1 Lakhs GTD for ₹43,327), and ‘ameya7777’ (Won Epic ₹1 Lakh GTD for ₹22,778) championed the other Spartan Poker marquees!
PokerBaazi`s ₹7.50 Lakhs GTD The Big Show experienced an overlay shortfall of ₹50,000 after 280 participants coughed up ₹2,750 to enter. Faiz ‘AilaGaya’ Alam added his 16th title for the year as he overcame the competition to win ₹1.46 Lakhs. He chopped the top prize three-way with ‘Instamuck’ (2nd for ₹1.09 Lakhs) and ‘slyblazer’ (3rd for ₹1 Lakh).
Faiz Alam impressively made ITM finishes in the Monday flagships across the top four sites, breaching ₹3.87 Crores in tracked online winnings (₹87.62 Lakhs in net profits).
The ₹5 Lakhs GTD (7-Max) Daily SPRINT featuring a ₹2,200 entry buy-in, clocked in 205 entrants to leave an overlay of ₹90,000, and the top 24 places boarded the money bus. Prateek ‘Pm1123’ Ajmani was the last player standing and won ₹1.08 Lakhs following a heads-up chop with seasoned poker pro (and one of our former Young Gun`s) Kanishka ‘Highness’ Samant (2nd for ₹96,630).
Rising Star Aman ‘KarmaPoker’ Parakh championed two late-night events on Monday. He took down the ₹1.50 Lakhs GTD Daily Night SPRINT for ₹48,000 while also winning Adda52’s Nighttide DST Adda for ₹34,191. Add five more ITM finishes, and Parakh lapped up over ₹1.14 Lakhs last night, storming his way into the ₹3 Crore Club.
‘Jbaat’ (Won Holdem BOOST ₹3 Lakhs GTD for ₹72,450), ‘awarahoon’ (Won Turbo ₹1.50 Lakhs GTD for ₹45,000), ‘aikansh98’ (Won PLO Boost Monster ₹1 Lakh GTD for ₹24,450), ‘jjain108’ (Won Daily Afternoon SPRINT ₹1 Lakh GTD for ₹18,650), and ‘Royalflush84’ (Won 5-max Daily ₹50K GTD for ₹9,493) took down the other Monday marquees on PokerBaazi.
The ₹25 Crores GTD WPT Online India (WPTOI) kept MTT players on edge all through August, and we were expecting the series to wrap up on Monday with the two scheduled SNGs – the ₹7 Lakhs GTD WPT Winners SNG and the ₹3 Lakhs GTD WPT Bubble SNG. However, both the SNGs have been rescheduled to today and will take place from 7.30 PM.
Instead, the site`s ₹8 Lakhs GTD Iron Man was the biggest draw on Monday. The event wrangled in 389 players, filling in ₹22,000 in overlays. The final 43 players got paid, and walking away with the title was the former Maverick champion Debapriya ‘debapriya_12345’ Manna, who bagged his third career title for ₹1.98 Lakhs. Former Adda52 Big Game finalist Juli ‘Lily8’ Kumari stood second for ₹1.20 Lakhs.
Juli Kumari placed one better in the ₹50K GTD Sundown Adda, netting ₹18,036 for the win. Two more ITM finishes saw her earn a cumulative ₹1.45 Lakhs, boosting her online tally to ₹36.30 Lakhs.
Young Gun Karan ‘Reg_Slayer’ Radia (opted out of our tracking) outran a 382-entry field in the ₹3 Lakhs GTD Voyager to collect ₹95,500. ‘Adit8783’ placed second for ₹57,873.
