The Game Changer & The MoneyMaker

From the nine events on the ‘PokerBaazi Classics’ schedule, two stand out: the ₹2 Crores GTD The Game Changer and the ₹1 Crore GTD The MoneyMaker.

The MoneyMaker is another one of PokerBaazi’s most celebrated tournament franchises with a cherished four-year-long legacy as India’s first-ever ₹1 Crore tournament. Anujkumar Kodam shipped the first-ever MoneyMaker title back in 2017. The 12th edition of The MoneyMaker, held in October 2020, was won by Banmanlang Lyndem for ₹17.46 Lakhs.

The 13th edition of The MoneyMaker, is a ‘1 Flight, 1 Crore GTD’ tourney and is the only such event in the country at present. The tournament will be the series-opener of the PokerBaazi Classics. The ₹11,000 buy-in event starts at 6 PM on January 2.

The first-ever online tournament to offer a ₹2 Crore prize pool guarantee, The Game Changer, had made its maiden run on PokerBaazi in February 2019. Prashanth Sekar was the first-ever ‘Game Changer’ champion and won ₹33 Lakhs in prize money. Since then, three more editions have been hosted with Jaikiran Kumar shipping the most recent The Game Changer 4.0 in September last year for ₹33.16 Lakhs!
