With the weekend fast approaching, the online action has reached a feverish pitch. The start of the 2021 IPL last night didn’t hamper the MTT turnouts too much, with most of the Friday flagships registering decent field sizes.

The day’s standout winner came from the PokerGuru Staking stable for the second day running, with PokerGuru Ambassador Kartik Ved chopping The Elite with Rising Star Ritwik Khanna.

Myron Pereira, Rishab Malik, and Sanish Chhabra were the other chart-toppers of the day.

There has been another change in the top order of the annual leaderboard rankings, with PokerGuru Ambassador Arjanveer Singh Chadha overtaking teammate Laksh Pal Singh at the #2 position.

Here are the Friday highlights.

 

Spartan Poker

Friday means it’s time for Spartan Poker`s ₹1 Crore GTD The Millionaire, with the site running the weekend flagship tourney each week in April. The first of the five starting flights of the ₹5,500 entry buy-in tourney recorded 307 participants, and only 45 players advanced through to Day 2. Subhojit ‘subhojitR’ Roy (401,717) and former Millionaire champions Siddhanth ‘PluRibu$’ Kripalani (176,392) and PokerGuru Ambassador Vishal ‘CrownUpJr’ Bajaj (152,435) bagged the top three stacks of the day.
