After more than a week of festivities that began with Christmas and rolled onto new-year celebrations, the online action seems to have picked up the pace. The first day of 2021 saw healthy turnouts across most of the major domestic sites. Sagar Choudhury couldn`t have asked for a better start to the year as he won two flagship titles last night. PokerGuru Ambassadors Laksh Pal Singh and Arjanveer Singh Chadha also hogged the limelight.

Let’s take a look at the standout Friday scorers.


Spartan Poker

Spartan Poker’s Friday mainstay, ₹25 Lakhs The Elite, registered 280 entries, thereby not only meeting its posted guarantee but blowing it to smithereens by collecting a whopping ₹28 Lakhs prize pool. Topping the charts after eight hours of battle was Sagar ‘Strangeplay’ Choudhury, who chopped the top prize with PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh ‘LuckyBhai$’ Singh for ₹5.54 Lakhs.

While Choudhury has won this event before in March last year, his last title win had come on December 26, when he won the ₹10 Lakhs GTD Titan Stack for ₹2.11 Lakhs.

Choudhury was in unbeatable form yesterday as he also shipped the ₹12 Lakhs GTD The Weekly HighRoller on PokerBaazi for ₹3.64 Lakhs while placing eighth in Adda52’s The Ballers for ₹56,250. Over a stellar run that comprised of two title wins and an FT finish, Choudhury collected almost ₹9.75 Lakhs for the day`s work. Safe to say that Choudhury has started off 2021 with a bang! He now sits with over ₹5.09 Crores in recorded winnings across the major domestic sites.

Runner-up Singh padded his bankroll with ₹5.37 Lakhs, while also placing fifth in Adda52’s The Ballers for ₹1.29 Lakhs, earning ₹6.67 Lakhs from these two deep runs alone. He is another crusher with over ₹5 Crores in recorded winnings and boasts an online scorecard of ₹5.04 Crores.
