With the WPT Online India series and the FTS now in the rear-view mirror, the MTT action has dropped significantly. Tuesday saw most of the big-ticket tourneys registering significant overlays, with the Diwali Rush series on PokerStars India being the only prominent MTT series currently underway.

Here is a quick recap of all that transpired yesterday.

 

Spartan Poker

Setting the virtual felts on fire was the Spartan Poker-hosted ₹20 Lakhs GTD Mega Stack. The ₹3,300 entry buy-in tourney offered the biggest prize pool guarantee of the day. Still, with a turnout of 580 entries, the tourney recorded a sizable ₹2.60 Lakhs overlay. It took a little over seven hours of play for a winner to emerge, with ‘vysh4987’ walking away with the title for a site-best ₹3.69 Lakhs in prize money. The player now has ₹9.19 Lakhs in recorded earnings on Spartan Poker. ‘legendof91’ collected ₹2.42 Lakhs for their runner-up finish.

The other Tuesday night marquee on Spartan Poker, the ₹7 Lakhs GTD The Race, smashed its advertised guarantee as 471 runners helped collect ₹7.07 Lakhs in the prize pool. Starting out at 9.30 PM, the tourney came to a close at 4.21 AM on Wednesday, with Utkarsh ‘kidpokerNJ’ Vaish taking down the title for ₹1.19 Lakhs (after a four-way deal). Vaish’s lifetime tally now reflects ₹69.25 Lakhs in recorded earnings. ‘vrockz’ (runner-up for ₹81,980), ‘Twenty Four’ (3rd for ₹81,434), and ‘Gdsa’ (4th for ₹78,197) were the other beneficiaries of the deal.

PokerStars India

The featured tourney on Day 3 of PokerStars India’s Diwali Rush Series, the ₹12 Lakhs GTD DIWALI RUSH-17 Sixth Sense, logged in 321 entries to register an overlay deficit of ₹2.37 Lakhs. The 7.30 PM tourney ended at 2.58 AM after Siddharth ‘gangnam gangi’ Gangwar defeated PokerGuru Ambassador Jayjit ‘unlucky2k’ Ray in the heads-up to win ₹2.14 Lakhs. The victory helped Gangwar improve his MTT tally to ₹43.55 Lakhs. Ray banked ₹1.52 Lakhs for his runner-up finish.

The ₹5 Lakhs GTD DIWALI RUSH-19 Uppercut Mini pulled in 219 entries to post a guarantee-crushing ₹5.48 Lakhs prize pool. The anonymous site-reg ‘yash1805’ topped the competition to win ₹1.25 Lakhs (₹50,472 in prize money and ₹74,785 in bounties). The former HERCULES runner-up currently sits on ₹57.89 Lakhs in recorded earnings on PokerStars India – ₹18.75 Lakhs of them in profits. The runner-up ‘ASG 961’ collected ₹49,206 (₹36,589 in prize money and ₹12,617 in bounties).

Prerit ‘robben1309’ Bais navigated his way through the 126 entry-field in the ₹1.5 Lakhs GTD DIWALI RUSH-20 Supersonic to win ₹28,198, following a heads-up deal with Rahul ‘andarkiaag’ Thakur (runner-up for ₹28,879).

Adda52

The biggest draw of the day on Adda52 was the ₹15 Lakhs GTD The Mint. The ₹3,850 entry buy-in tourney signed up 381 entries to post an overlay of ₹1.67 Lakhs. Blazing his way to the top was none other than the WPT India Super High Roller champion Siddhanth ‘Sidstack’ Kripalani, who added ₹3.75 Lakhs to his bankroll after the win. The Game Changer 3.0 winner now has over ₹1.93 Crores in earnings this year, while his lifetime MTT scores have crossed ₹2.6 Crores. The 2020 India Poker Champion, Rubin ‘kornkif’ Labroo, pocketed ₹2.27 Lakhs for his runner-up finish.
