The National Poker Series (NPS) has been brewing quite the storm on PokerBaazi since its debut on June 13. On the heels of a blockbuster Sunday, Day 9 of the NPS continued with its guarantee-crushing journey, resulting in a significant dent in turnouts on other sites.

Despite a lowered guarantee, Spartan Poker’s The Big Deal was still the day’s biggest event. Walking away with the title was last week’s third-place finisher, Pawan Tez, who banked a personal-best ₹7.66 Lakhs with PokerGuru Ambassador Kartik Ved placing runner-up for ₹5.28 Lakhs.

Speaking of the NPS, Rising Star Ritwik Khanna shipped the NPS#23 Big KO for ₹4.94 Lakhs. The NPS Gold Medallist and the #1 ranked player of the month, PokerGuru Ambassador Ankit Wadhawan, picked up his second NPS Silver Medal by placing runner-up for ₹3.46 Lakhs. Wadhwan’s spectacular performance in the NPS thus far has placed him on top of the NPS Podium leaderboard with 20 points. Winning this leaderboard will get him a Las Vegas package worth ₹10 Lakhs.

Archit Khandelwal was the last player standing in Adda52’s Iron Man and took down his first title of the year for ₹2.17 Lakhs.

Arun Sriram (Won Spartan Poker’s ReCharge for ₹2.06 Lakhs), Rasik Bhatia (Won PokerBaazi’s NPS#53 Sprint for ₹1.48 Lakhs), Kunal Chaudhary (Won Adda52’s Voyager for ₹72,923), Anirban D. Das (Won PokerStars India’s Battle Royale for ₹63,800), Anmol Agarwal (Won PokerBaazi’s NPS#51 Time Bomb for ₹30,413) and Swapnil Patil (Won PokerStars India’s Ultrasonic for ₹26,255) took down the other Monday marques.

Here are the Monday highlights!

With the NPS buzz dominating the player’s attention, the other poker sites have been feeling the heat. Responding to the hectic NPS Monday schedule, Spartan Poker dropped the guarantees of both its Monday marquees.

The Monday headliner The Big Deal saw its guarantee slashed from ₹33 Lakhs to ₹30 Lakhs. Despite this, the ₹22,000 entry buy-in tourney experienced a ₹2 Lakhs overlay shortfall on the back of 140 entries. SnG specialist Pawan ‘_luffy_1x1’ Tez improved upon his third-place finish in The Big Deal from last week by taking down the title, after besting PokerGuru Ambassador Kartik ‘TheInternetKid’ Ved (runner-up for ₹5.28 Lakhs) in the heads-up play. Tez banked the ₹7.66 Lakhs top prize, boosting his lifetime winnings to ₹2.71 Crores.

The ReCharge ran with a reduced ₹9 Lakhs prize pool guarantee, down from ₹9.50 Lakhs last Monday. However, unlike The Big Deal, for a consecutive week, the ReCharge fared much better. The event registered 531 entries, posting a ₹10.62 Lakhs prize pool. After eight hours and 18 minutes of play, the DOPT June Special champion Arun ‘vazharmorghulis’ Sriram came out on top to win ₹2.06 Lakhs, edging past Ashish ‘UGOTBLUFF’ Pareek (runner-up for ₹1.31 Lakhs) to the finish line.

Arun Sriram grabbed his fifth title of the year last night, touching ₹80.22 Lakhs in lifetime online winnings.



Day 9 of the National Poker Series (NPS) saw the opening flight of the series’ showstopper, the ₹3 Crores GTD NPS#55 Main Event, play out. Running from 9 PM to 2:02 AM, Flight 1A pulled in 634 entries, of which only 70 runners proceeded to Day 2. The mystery reg ‘Ikka5’ (422,000) bagged the end-of-day chip lead while PokerGuru Ambassador Shashank ‘indianrat’ Desai (359,000) and Piyush ‘Piyush303’ Lalchandani (332,000) carried forward the top three stacks of the day.

The most-talked-about NPS marquee, the ambitious ₹1 Crore GTD NPS#20 Golden Rush, played out its ninth starting flight yesterday. Adding another 752 entries to the mix, the ₹550 buy-in event has so far registered 11,568 total entries. Vivek ‘viveksnmc10’ Pal (890,000) ended Flight 1I in pole position, while Dhinesh ‘dhineshrocky007’ Kumar (533,000) and ‘AACES71’ (494,000) rounded out the top three stacks of the day.

The NPS headliner of the day was the ₹20 Lakhs GTD NPS#23 Big KO. Poker streamer and Rising Star Ritwik ‘Ritwikkhanna’ Khanna denied PokerGuru Ambassador Ankit ‘d00mtr00p3r’ Wadhawan his second NPS Gold Medal as he went on to win the event for ₹4.94 Lakhs (includes ₹12,000 in bounties). The former Millionaire runner-up picked up two more deep runs last night, adding ₹5.49 Lakhs in Monday winnings. His ITM finishes include:

> 10th in Spartan Poker’s The Big Deal for ₹63,000

> 66th in PokerBaazi’s NPS#56 Hyper Sprint for ₹3,931

Ankit Wadhawan has been on a heater of a lifetime, and it is hardly surprising to see him headlining the June leaderboard standings. After a phenomenal Sunday run that saw him take down the Adda52 Millions, the young pro added another ₹3.46 Lakhs (includes ₹8,250 in bounties) to his bankroll last night while also claiming his second NPS Silver Medal. Wadhawan has quickly climbed up to #15 on the annual leaderboard and sits on ₹5.87 Crores in lifetime online earnings. If he persists with his current form, he will likely enter the 6 Crores Club’ before the end of June.

The ₹8 Lakhs GTD NPS#56 Hyper Sprint drew 634 entries, generating a ₹12.68 Lakhs prize pool.
