It was an electrifying Sunday for poker players, and Spartan Poker’s ₹1 Crore GTD The Millionaire was once again the day`s star attraction. Like the previous weekends, the fourth Millionaire edition of April obliterated its prize pool guarantee. The user ‘Kickercards’ stormed his way into the “Millionaire`s Club,” netting the lion`s share of the ₹1.04 Crore prize pool worth ₹17.38 Lakhs. Uttam Kumar Sinha finished runner-up for ₹9.53 Lakhs.

The Siliguri-based MTT pro Manish Lakhotia has been locked in an intense three-way race for the #1 rank on the yearly leaderboard these past few weeks. He had lost his top spot to PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh two weeks ago. However, Lakhotia’s third-place finish in The Millionaire last night landed him back on top of the 2021 leaderboard rankings.

Besides The Millionaire, PokerBaazi’s Value Bomb Extreme was another crowd puller. The third edition of this popular event was shipped by Gaurav Kaul for ₹8.10 Lakhs. Well-known player Yudhisthir Singh Rathore came in second for ₹5.56 Lakhs.

PokerGuru Ambassadors have been crushing the online MTT scene, with as many as five of them featuring among the top 10 winners of the year. Last night again, the team came out in full force with two title victories and another two runner-up finishes across the Sunday marquees. Gokul Raj (Won PokerStars India’s Sunday Highroller for ₹2.98 Lakhs) and Naresh Veeravalli (Won Spartan Poker’s Money Heist for ₹1.71 Lakhs) won titles, while Arjanveer Singh Chadha (2nd in Spartan Poker’s Sunday Superstack for ₹5.53 Lakhs), Ankit Wadhawan (2nd in Adda52 Millions for ₹4.33 Lakhs), and Vishal Bajaj (5th in Spartan Poker’s The Millionaire for ₹3.94 Lakhs) posted top finishes.

Shagun Jain (Won Adda52’s Deepstack Madness for ₹5.22 Lakhs), Amit Kaushik (Won PokerStars India’s Sunday Special for ₹3.10 Lakhs), Bibhu Agarwal (Won Adda52’s Sunday Showdown for ₹1.95 Lakhs), and Anmol Agarwal (Won PokerBaazi’s BSS#5 MegaStack for ₹1.46 Lakhs) were the other Sunday winners!
