The comeback edition of India`s longest-running live tournament series, the IPC Megastacks, starts today at Casino Vegas by Big Daddy in Hotel Mechhi in Jhapa, Nepal! And with most of the MTT circuit regulars busy traveling to Bagdogra for the ₹3.50 Crores GTD six-day-long series, the virtual temperatures plummeted on Monday!

A former IPC title winner, Raghavendra Hada emerged as the day`s single-biggest scorer. He took down PokerBaazi’s The Big Show for ₹2.05 Lakhs, following a heads-up deal with ‘Realfc’ (anonymity requested) (2nd for ₹2.04 Lakhs). Hada also won PokerSaint`s Primetime.

Last week`s IMPS#90 BIG KO champion Rishabh Gupta made another title run. He championed Adda52’s Iron Man for ₹2.05 Lakhs and min-cashed PokerBaazi`s (7-Max) SPRINT, adding ₹2.09 Lakhs overall.

Anish Arora proved the last player standing in Spartan Poker’s ReCharge and won the Monday headliner for ₹1.37 Lakhs, beating the #1 ranked player of the month, PokerGuru Ambassador Tarush Gupta (2nd for ₹92,560) heads-up!

The three-time Sunday Special PKO champion Atishay Samuel is off to quite the start this week! Last night, he posted two top finishes: winning PokerBaazi’s (7-Max) SPRINT for the second time for ₹1.25 Lakhs and placing runner-up in Holdem BOOST for ₹46,500, collectively adding ₹1.79 Lakhs!

Saturday`s Blockbuster winner Gurpal Singh made another profitable Monday run! The long-time poker reg won PokerStars India`s Battle Royale for ₹90,002, with the latest PokerGuru Staking recruit Debneil Mukherjee collecting ₹71,095 in second place. The Battle Royale win was one of three FT finishes Singh posted last night, and he lapped up an impressive ₹1.82 Lakhs altogether.

The #1 ranked player in the annual TLB (points) standings, Rajneesh Thakur, pulled off another breakout run on PokerBaazi yesterday! He won two titles – SPRINT for ₹32,677 and the Daily Afternoon SPRINT for ₹29,373 – and cashed another five events, filling in a generous ₹1.28 Lakhs into his poker bankroll.

Adithya NG, Vivek Rawat, Abhishek Kumar Chaurasia, Sahil Nair, and Mohak Kapoor were the other standout Monday winners.
