It was a blockbuster Sunday that witnessed two ₹1 Crore GTD tourneys crown champions. Spartan Poker‘s GPS The Millionaire United was taken down by the undisputed annual leaderboard topper Young Gun Gaurav Sood, while Adda52’s Full House Finale found a victor in Akash Gupta. With such massive prize pool guarantees all across, most of the marquees suffered overlays.

Here is a recap of all the exciting action from Sunday!


Spartan Poker

The fourth edition of Spartan Poker’s Grand Poker Series (GPS) that got underway on October 2 has already crowned its first Millionaire! The ₹1 Crore GTD GPS The Millionaire United that had commenced on Gandhi Jayanti as well, pulled in 1,332 entries through three starting flights, ultimately registering a shortfall of ₹6.76 Lakhs. The ‘numero uno’ player on the annual rankings for 21 consecutive weeks, Young Gun Gaurav ‘mozzie17’ Sood, clinched the title and top prize worth ₹17.75 Lakhs! This is his personal-best score on Spartan Poker.

Being the phenomenal player that he is, Sood also final tabled Adda52’s ₹1 Crore GTD Full House Finale, placing seventh for ₹2 Lakhs. His cumulative score for Sunday night stood tall at ₹19.75 Lakhs, helping his cross ₹3.50 Crores in earnings this year.

Sood bested the likes of ‘Shashank2409’ (runner-up for ₹10.30 Lakhs), Vikranth ‘borntrouble’ Varma (3rd for ₹7.25 Lakhs), Yudhisthir Singh ‘Rowdy6’ Rathore (8th for ₹1.70 Lakhs), and Barbarik ‘barbarik12’ Tibrewal (9th for ₹1.31 Lakhs) on the final table, before claiming the top honors.

The ₹40 Lakhs GTD GPS#12 Sunday Superstack came back for another weekly run last night. Pulling in 772 entries, the ₹5,500 entry buy-in event could not avoid the ₹1.40 Lakhs overlay. Well-known reg Vaibhav ‘Nikka Zaildar’ Sharma, who had shipped this very event on September 6, agreed to a heads-up chop with Kunal ‘TiltAtma’ Patni (runner-up for ₹6.24 Lakhs), before walking away with a winner’s paycheque worth ₹6.33 Lakhs.

This win sent Sharma’s lifetime tally closer to the ₹4 Crore-mark and is presently at ₹3.79 Crores. Meanwhile, Patni has accumulated ₹2.94 Crores in online earnings.

Spartan Poker’s ₹10 Lakhs GTD GPS#13 Money Heist played out amid 306 entries, registering a deficit of ₹82,000. Guruprasad ‘DONKAKING’ Gupta shipped the event for ₹2.11 Lakhs, after defeating ‘kowikyvyfa’ (runner-up for ₹1.42 Lakhs) heads-up.

The biggest guarantee tourney running on PokerStars India last night was the ₹18 Lakhs GTD Sunday Special Progressive KO. Starting at 5 PM, the tourney managed to draw in 296 contenders by the time late registration was closed, resulting in a ₹3.20 Lakhs shortfall. It took nearly nine hours for the tournament to come to a close, and in the end, it was PokerGuru Ambassador Ratul ‘MuscariAs’ Steves who topped the field and win the ₹2.97 Lakhs up-top. Steves wrestled with ‘7II7II7II’ for the title, and the latter eventually settled for ₹2.05 Lakhs. This was Steven’s biggest score on the PokerStars India platform to date, and he now has ₹2.65 Crores in recorded online winnings.

Unlike the Sunday Special, the ₹11,000 entry buy-in Sunday Highroller had a far better run. Promising ₹15 Lakhs in guarantee, the event registered 168 entries, generating a ₹16.80 Lakhs prize pool. Young Gun Ujjwal ‘CougarHunter69’ Narwal championed the event for ₹2.57 Lakhs, after agreeing to a three-way deal with PokerGuru Ambassador Arjanveer ‘ballistik310’ Singh Chadha (runner-up for ₹2.89 Lakhs) and Ayush ‘Kyanaamrakhu’ Garg (3rd for ₹2.38 Lakhs).

PokerStars India’s ‘Play For A Cause’ Charity Tournament Series that had begun on October 2, hosted its fourth event yesterday with the proceeds benefitting the charity organization, Bridge of Sports. Attracting 70 participants who paid up the ₹550 entry buy-in, the event overlayed ₹30,750. Mystery user ‘Veer7700’ took down the event for ₹8,996. A four-way deal saw ‘kalkiom’ (runner-up for ₹8,348), ‘ankit321‘ (3rd for ₹8,450), and ‘cybrozx’ (4th for ₹8,007) pocketing the top payouts.



PokerBaazi’s Indian Micro Poker Series (IMPS) closed out yet another successful run last night with the culmination of the series’s star attraction, the ₹50 Lakhs GTD IMPS Main Event. Gathering 4,672 entries across five starting flights, the ₹1,100 buy-in tourney experienced a shortfall of ₹3.28 Lakhs. 29-year-old Kalpesh ‘joecada’ Mehta from Bengaluru raced past the competition to claim the top honors, along with the ₹8.59 Lakhs top prize. Anonymous user ‘raavan369’ finished runner-up for ₹5.74 Lakhs.

PokerBaazi’s Sunday staple tourney, the ₹25 Lakhs GTD BSS SuperStack, dragged in 436 entrants, and the site had to fill in an overlay of ₹3.2 Lakhs. Renowned poker coach and MTT crusher Abhishek ‘singhsaab’ Goindi obliterated the competition to capture the top prize of ₹5.02 Lakhs. Chirag ‘miyagi’ Sodha, who topped the weekly rankings last week after shipping Spartan Poker’s Destiny ₹25 Lakhs GTD for ₹6.10 Lakhs and Adda52’s The Ballers ₹22.5 Lakhs GTD for ₹6.13 Lakhs, came in second for ₹3.52 Lakhs.

The Sunday showstopper on Pocket52 was the ₹15 Lakhs GTD Pocket Aces that ran as a part of the Ship-It Again series. The tournament logged in 322 entries to register a shortfall worth ₹2.12 Lakhs. Unknown user ‘Bron2win’ took advantage of the value on offer and shipped the event for ₹3 Lakhs, just as ‘summutummu’ came in second for ₹2.25 Lakhs.



Running alongside Spartan Poker’s GPS The Millionaire United was Adda52’s ₹1 Crore GTD Full House Finale. Having locked in 1,686 entries from six starting flights, the ₹5,500 entry buy-in tourney got hit hard by a ₹15.70 Lakhs shortfall! Day 2 saw 209 entrants battle it out to secure the top honors, and after six hours of intense play, Akash ‘Akashgupta1’ Gupta emerged as the ultimate champion!

Another edition of Spartan Poker’s Grand Poker Series is currently underway, and the biggest attraction over the opening weekend of this 10-day series was the ₹1 Crore GTD GPS The Millionaire United. The tournament garnered 1,332 entries (Day 1A- 360, Day 1B – 345 and Day 1C – 627) across three starting flights, falling ₹6.76 Lakhs short of meeting the guarantee.

A total of 196 runners (Day 1A – 54, Day 1B – 48, Day 1C – 94) powered through to Day 2 – this included 168 unique players. Day 2 began at 10 PM on Sunday, and ran well over five-and-half hours before crowning a champion in none other than Young Gaurav ‘mozzie17’ Sood!

The 25-year-old phenom has dominated our yearly online rankings for a straight 21 weeks, and with yesterday’s trailblazing run, Sood is going to stay on the top for another week as well!

The last few weeks have been relatively low-key for Sood, who posted only two FT scores last week, tallying up to ₹5.33 Lakhs. He made a smashing comeback on Sunday night by padding his bankroll by a whopping ₹17.75 Lakhs.

In fact, Sood has been on a winning spree the entire year, and while his best score of 2020 remains the ₹18.61 Lakhs that he had pocketed for shipping PokerBaazi’s ₹1 Crore GTD BPTO Main Event in January, his latest feat is his best performance on the site. Now that Sood has finally joined the elite Millionaire club, he has also boosted his online record to ₹5.7 Crores.

Runner-up ‘Shashank2409’ pocketed a seven-figure score worth ₹10.30 Lakhs.

Vikranth ‘borntrouble’ Varma (3rd for ₹7.25 Lakhs), Yudhisthir Singh ‘Rowdy6’ Rathore (8th for ₹1.70 Lakhs), and Barbarik ‘barbarik12’ Tibrewal (9th for ₹1.31 Lakhs) also final tabled the event.
