With no ₹1 Crore GTD flagship gracing the weekend schedule, this past Sunday was relatively subdued. PokerBaazi`s IMPS Gold Edition and Spartan Poker’s UVS played out the last of their scheduled events last night. PokerStars India’s INCOOP is also on the business end with just the ₹1 Crore GTD INCOOP Main Event left to crown a champion.

Mohammad Azhar has been in phenomenal form since his breakthrough run in June when he championed the NPS Main Event. Adding another flagship title to his glittering resume, the 23-year-old took down the Adda52 Big Game for a jaw-dropping ₹15.37 Lakhs, with ‘Padma37’ placing runner-up for ₹8.96 Lakhs.

The two-time Millionaire winner, Manish Lakhotia, who has climbed back to #2 on the yearly leaderboard, won Spartan Poker`s Sunday Superstack title for the second time this year for ₹7.81 Lakhs. PokerGuru Ambassadors Ashish Munot (2nd for ₹5.19 Lakhs) and Ashish Ahuja (3rd for ₹3.80 Lakhs) round out the podium finishes.

The star attraction at PokerBaazi’s IMPS Gold Edition, the IMPS#113 Main Event, was championed by Abhishek ‘rekop’ Kushwaha for ₹9.48 Lakhs. Suneeth Kalmady took home an equally impressive ₹7.20 Lakhs runner-up payout, courtesy of a heads-up deal.

Vinayak Bajaj was another breakout winner and clinched back-to-back titles in Spartan Poker’s UVS#45 – Everest and Adda52’s Sunday Showdown, while also running deep in two more events. In all, he added a collective ₹6.09 Lakhs in Sunday winnings.

Aayush Goyal, Manish Jangid, Rishabh Baj, Pankaj Nanda, Areyann Gurbaxani, Yash Jain, Nitin Rawat, Mridul Kharkwa, Mohak Kapoor, Sanchit Anand, and Rohit Deoghare shipped the other Sunday marquees.

Here are the Sunday highlights!

 

Spartan Poker

With no ‘The Millionaire’ playing out over the weekend, the ₹35 Lakhs GTD Sunday SuperStack was the biggest guaranteed Sunday tournament on Spartan Poker. The ₹11,000 buy-in tourney gathered 390 participants, posting a colossal ₹39 Lakhs prize pool. After eight hours and 23 minutes of play, the two-time Millionaire champion Manish ‘thekid’ Lakhotia held all the chips in play and walked away with a winner’s paycheque worth ₹7.81 Lakhs. PokerGuru Ambassadors Ashish ‘Donkey 07’ Munot (2nd for ₹5.19 Lakhs) and Ashish ‘Spewushhhiiiii’ Ahuja (3rd for ₹3.80 Lakhs) secured podium finishes.

Adda52’s Sunday headliner was the ₹50 Lakhs GTD Add52 Big Game. The 9 PM tourney registered 224 entries, generating a ₹56 Lakhs prize pool. The play culminated at 5.43 AM, with the first-ever NPS Main Event champion Mohammad ‘blankspace’ Azhar walking away as the champion.

Last night`s win fetched Mohammad Azhar his 14th title and fifth seven-figure score this year. The 23-year-old player has charted a dramatic rise in the poker circuit. While he was won three NPS titles and swept the NPS leaderboard in June, Azhar closed out August with a runner-up score in the WPT India Main Event. He has also won The Big Deal back-to-back this month.

The Sunday run has helped him cross ₹2 Crores in annual winnings, pushing him to #20 in the yearly leaderboard rankings.

After going relatively slow on the results, two-time Millionaire champion Manish ‘thekid’ Lakhotia seems back on the driver’s seat with a bang. Just a week after picking up a runner-up score worth ₹17.60 Lakhs in the FTS #23 Highroller, Lakhotia netted another big score. He toppled a 390-player field to win Spartan Poker’s ₹35 Lakhs GTD Sunday Superstack for ₹7.82 Lakhs – his second time winning this event. PokerGuru Ambassador Ashish ‘Donkey 07’ Munot finished runner-up for ₹5.20 Lakhs.

Lakhotia has consolidated his position on the annual leaderboard with cashes worth ₹3.44 Crores. He also has ₹8.98 Crores in lifetime winnings and will likely cross the ₹9 Crore mark any day now.
