With the weekend rolling in, the online action on Friday was electrifying, as most flagships comfortably surpassed their guarantees.

Grabbing the headlines was seasoned MTT pro (and a former Young Gun) Shravan Chhabria, who banked over ₹6.28 Lakhs for taking down Adda52’s The Ballers.

Nikhil Yadav, Mohammad Azhar, Ayush Garg, Amarjeet Singh, and Umesh Sharma dominated the other Friday marquee tourneys.

Here`s a complete recap of the day’s highlights!

 

Spartan Poker

Spartan Poker’s weekend fiesta, the ₹1 Crore GTD Millionaire, completed its second starting flight on Friday. Day 1B of the ₹5,500 entry-buy-in event gathered 354 participants, and only 46 survived the day`s play. The event has already registered 676 entries (Day 1A – 322 and Day 1B – 354), with three more flights to go before Day 2 on Sunday. ‘Ken4two’ (320,471) bagged the end-of-the-day chip lead, taking the overall chip lead. The FTS 2.0 Main Event champion, Young Gun Siddharth ‘Ari Tribbiani’ Karia (238,097) and ‘nymphetamine’ (235,765) were the top three names on the Day 1B survivor`s list.

The day`s featured tourney, the ₹30 Lakhs GTD The Elite, logged in 330 contestants, accumulating a whopping ₹33 Lakhs in the prize pool. The 9:30 PM tourney went on for over seven and a half hours before ‘Khuranaji’ and Nikhil ‘louis02’ Yadav cut a heads-up deal to wrap up the proceedings. The former was awarded the title and a ₹6.31 Lakhs payday, while Yadav secured the runner-up payout of ₹5.36 Lakhs. This happens to be the first major title for the anonymous champion, pushing his total winnings on the site to ₹6.46 Lakhs (₹5.35 Lakhs in net profits).

Like The Elite, even the ₹10 Lakhs GTD Futuristic crushed its advertised guarantee easily, as a starting field of 1,277 challengers generated a prize pool worth ₹10.22 Lakhs. The mystery user ‘LACHANCE’ was the last player standing and banked a personal-best (on Spartan Poker) ₹1.68 Lakhs after striking a heads-up deal with ‘prasun2329’ (runner-up for ₹1.42 Lakhs).

The theme on Day 5 of the Ultimate Value Series (UVS) was knockout tourneys. And Spartan Poker ran five UVS events on Friday. The biggest of them, the ₹4 Lakhs GTD UVS #29, was taken down by ‘NothingElseMatters.’ The player pierced a 429-entry field to win ₹70,995, following a three-way deal with Kriti ‘ironlady’ Kuksal (runner-up for ₹63,107) and Akshay ‘Sp3wdi3pi3’ Dhingra (3rd for ₹53,647).

With just two more days for the series to end, Induprakash ‘Fixed Odds’ Mishra is the frontrunner in the ₹3 Lakhs UVS leaderboard standings with 2,649 points. Siddharth ‘SidSparta21’ Ojha (2,558 points) and ‘VM.Varga’ (2,499 points) are close on his coattails in second and third place, respectively.

PokerStars India

PokerStars India`s Friday headliner, the ₹7 Lakhs GTD Uppercut Magic Edition, collected a hefty ₹7.21 Lakhs prize pool after 206 runners signed up to play. The former Millionaire winner Ayush ‘Kyanaamrakhu’ Garg outlasted them all, winning the Uppercut title for the third time last night for ₹1.69 Lakhs (₹1,06,531 in bounties). Goonjan ‘gmtesting.ind’ Mall placed runner-up for ₹88,846 (₹26,469 in bounties).

Garg now boasts ₹3.92 Crores in lifetime earnings (₹1.62 Crores in net profits).

The ₹2 Lakhs GTD Classic PKO couldn`t generate the same interest as the Uppercut, as a playing field of 114 entrants resulted in an overlay shortfall of ₹29,000. The mystery crusher ‘cardshark6191’ championed the tourney, collecting ₹51,902 (₹29,332 in bounties), with ‘jdnayyar’ placing runner-up for ₹26,929 (₹4,359 in bounties).

Umesh ‘Dhondu.chilll’ Sharma took down the ₹1.5 Lakhs GTD Ultrasonic for ₹35,122.

PokerBaazi

Lighting up the primetime slot on PokerBaazi was the ₹12 Lakhs GTD The Weekly HighRoller. The 8 PM flagship wrangled in 140 runners, and with each of them ponying up ₹11,000 to enter, a generous ₹14 Lakhs prize pool was collected. Mohammad ‘chandlerbing’ Azhar was the last player standing and championed the tourney for the second time last night, adding ₹3.61 Lakhs to his bankroll. He had won the Weekly HighRoller for the first time on February 20 for ₹3.71 Lakhs. Online phenom Siddhanth ‘ender’ Kripalani placed runner-up for ₹2.52 Lakhs, crossing ₹3.33 Crores in lifetime winnings.

Adda52

Adda52`s Nano Poker Series is on the home stretch now, and the showstopper event at the series, the ₹25 Lakhs GTD Nano Main Event, played out its second starting flight on Friday. Day 1B recorded 344 entries, a marked improvement over the 293 Day 1A entries from the day before. After the stipulated 29 eight-minute levels of play, 39 survivors made the cut for Day 2. Nitin ‘BigBluffs’ Arora (427,134), Adithya ‘Rlox1’ N G (334,909), and ‘jpoker’ (310,769) bagged the top stacks of the day.

Running alongside the Nano Main Event was the day`s featured tourney, the ₹22.50 Lakhs GTD The Ballers. The ₹7,500 entry buy-in tourney logged in 367 challengers, posting a guarantee-crushing ₹25.14 Lakhs prize pool. After a bunch of deep runs, the long-time MTT pro Shravan ‘Sweatmyass13’ Chhabria finally bagged the title, collecting ₹6.28 Lakhs for the win, making him the day`s top scorer. Unfortunately, since Chabbria has opted out of our tracking, we do not have accurate stats on his recent exploits. ‘MallaNi’ placed runner-up for ₹3.81 Lakhs.
