June kicked off with a bang with PokerBaazi’s 1100 Texas Hold ’em Championship (THC) commencing its inaugural run on the same day as the 53rd annual WSOP in Las Vegas. While the full Indian contingent will likely storm Las Vegas in the next few weeks, the virtual felts promise to keep dishing out massive payouts throughout the month!

Spartan Poker’s 13th edition of the IOPC kicks off tomorrow with PokerStars India’s Summer Series starting on June 3, setting the stage for non-stop action all around!

For the second day in a row, MPL Poker’s IPF flagship winner bagged the day`s single-biggest score! And the distinction went to Akhiesh Meena last night for taking down the IPF #7 for 4.20 Lakhs. Khirod Munda (2nd for 2.80 Lakhs) and MTT pro Rohit Mishra (3rd for 1.80 Lakhs) round the podium!

Mohit Mehta was the Tuesday chartbuster! The online reg won two marquee tournaments and cashed a third for 4.72 Lakhs overall! Mehta, one of the three winners bagging two titles yesterday, championed Spartan Poker’s Mega Stack for 3.49 Lakhs and PokerBaazi`s THC#4 KO, for 1.19 Lakhs!

The Adda52 reg ‘VishuChi’ came out on top in The Mint for 3.82 Lakhs, with the actor-DJ-poker player Siddhanth Kapoor placing runner-up for 2.26 Lakhs.

Yash Chitre was the other player scoring a double victory last night. He won PokerBaazi’s The Endeavour for 2.65 Lakhs and Adda52’s Voyager for 57,995, collectively banking over 3.23 Lakhs!

Himanshu Kataria championed the THC flagship on Day 1 of the series, THC#3 Megastack, for a site-best 2.65 Lakhs. He struck a heads-up deal with seasoned MTT pro Sahil Mahboobani (2nd for 2.42 Lakhs).

M Jimmy won PokerBaazi`s THC#1 Kick-Off for 2.39 Lakhs.

The undisputed #1 ranked player of the year, Young Gun Anuj Yadav, made the victory march in PokerStars India’s Bounty Builder HR (On-time Rake Refund), winning the Tuesday flagship for the second time in five weeks for ₹2.37 Lakhs. PokerGuru Ambassador Arjanveer Singh Chadha placed runner-up for ₹1.35 Lakhs.

The other prominent winners of the day were Ravinder Singh, Gurpal Singh, Dhaval Doshi, Naman Puri, Adwait Pol, Karan Lochab, and Jimmy Arora!
