PokerBaazi

PokerBaazi’s Thursday headliner ₹15 Lakhs GTD The Summit brought in 219 entries, collecting a generous ₹16.43 Lakhs prize pool. It took under eight hours for Utsav ‘ranny006’ Taneja to navigate his way to the top and win ₹3.86 Lakhs.

Radia bagged his second title in Adda52’s ₹5 Lakhs GTD Monster Turbo, which he won for ₹1.36 Lakhs, collectively earning ₹1.87 Lakhs!

 

Adda52

Adda52’s ₹1 Crore GTD Full House logged in 241 entries on Day 1D, and only 19 runners carried forward a stack for Day 2. Niharika ‘Nixiepixie’ Bindra (510,977) came out as the end-of-day chip leader, also assuming the overall chip lead after four flights. ‘ckps86’ (411,845) and Rajat Happyfish’ Mahajan (304,157) bagged the next top stacks.

The Full House has registered 757 entries after the first four starting flights. The event needs to clock 2,000 entries across eight flights to break-even, so the turnouts are somewhat below par. The site would be counting on the weekend rush to make up for the slow turnouts.

The featured tourney of the day, the ₹25 Lakhs GTD Godfather, registered 456 entries falling a significant ₹2.20 Lakhs short of its advertised guarantee. Benefitting the most from this added value was circuit reg ‘borntrouble’ (anonymity requested). The previous Godfather champion fired six bullets before winning the Thursday night flagship for the second time. They added a hefty ₹6.12 Lakhs to their bankroll after defeating the Full House Finale Day 1C chip leader ‘PokerPunter01’ (runner-up for ₹3.62 Lakhs) heads-up.

In the ₹5 Lakhs GTD Monster Turbo, the Grinders #22 Holdem Boost winner Karan Reg_Slayer’ Radia outlasted the 223 entry field to win ₹1.36 Lakhs. ‘vasushrest’ secured the runner-up payday of ₹80,280.
