Just like cyclone Tauktae passed off the baton to cyclone Yaas, it seems like PokerGuru Ambassadors have also been passing The Millionaire title from one to the other each week. For a third consecutive week, a PokerGuru Staking member, this week Mithun Mahesh, captured The Millionaire title, netting a whopping 19.39 Lakhs (includes four ITM finishes). He is now the fifth PokerGuru Ambassador to have won Spartan Poker’s The Millionaire this year!

Mithun Mahesh has been in winning form since last Thursday when he took down PokerStars India’s Highroller for 2.84 Lakhs and placed runner-up in Spartan Poker’s Trending Thursday for 3.13 Lakhs. Last night, Mithun Mahesh locked horns with Praveen ‘hendalson’ Gattani (runner-up for 10.26 Lakhs) heads-up in The Millionaire and outmaneuvered the latter to clinch his career-first Millionaire title.

PokerGuru caught up with the man of the hour, and this is what Mahesh had to say: “Sunday was good. I ran pretty good. I played my usual strategy mostly. The final table was fun. The table lineup, stack distribution, everything was in my favor. All I had to do was stay composed, and things worked well for me.”

He dedicated The Millionaire title to his coach and mentor, stating, “Also, I would like to dedicate this victory to my head coach, Aditya Agarwal, and my mentor, Kartik Ved.”

Vaibhav Sharma (Won PokerBaazi’s IMPS#46 Main Event for 4.89 Lakhs), Masroor Ansari (Won Adda52’s Nano Main Event for 4.24 Lakhs), Aayush Goyal (Won PokerBaazi’s BSS#4 SuperStack for 4.15 Lakhs), Amar Mehta (Won PokerStars India’s Sunday Special Progressive KO for 2.60 Lakhs), and Joseph Rochungh Touthang (Won Spartan Poker’s UVS Main Event for 1.72 Lakhs), were the other big Sunday winners.

Here are the Sunday highlights!

Spartan Poker

Home to the biggest online tournaments in India, Spartan Poker yet again hosted the biggest guaranteed weekend marquee, the 1 Crore GTD The Millionaire. The 5,500 entry buy-in event commenced on Thursday and by late Sunday evening, it had collected 2,280 entries across five starting flights, once again resulting in a guarantee-smashing 1.13 Crore prize pool.

Spartan Poker hosting guarantee-breaching The Millionaire events have become commonplace. However, another thing seems to have become a Sunday staple – PokerGuru Ambassadors shipping Millionaire tourneys! After Kartik Ved (May 9) and Vivek Singh (May 16), this Sunday belonged to Mithun ‘Zima Blue’ Mahesh!

Mithun Mahesh was among the 315 Day 2 runners (205 unique players), and he came out on top after almost six hours of non-stop playing, banking a career-best 18.76 Lakhs. Having advanced to Day 2 with multiple stacks, Mahesh’s cumulative score in The Millionaire touched 19.39 Lakhs.

His ‘The Millionaire’ ITM finishes included:

Mithun Mahesh tangled with Praveen ‘hendalson’ Gattani for the top honors in The Millionaire. While the PokerGuru Ambassador was able to claim his career-first The Millionaire title, the mystery user finished runner-up for a commendable 10.26 Lakhs.

It took the anonymous user ‘Pokerispain’ a little over nine hours to walk away with the title and the 9.04 Lakhs up-top. PokerStars India’s “Star of the Month” February edition, Armaan ‘space ace’ Kochhar came second for 5.74 Lakhs.

With Spartan Poker hosting its massive Sunday flagships, including the UVS marquees, not to forget PokerBaazi’s BSS and IMPS and Adda52’s Sunday flagships and NPS, also running alongside, expectedly PokerStars India’s Sunday signature events fell short on pulling in the crowds.

Starting off at 5 PM, the 15 Lakhs GTD Sunday Special Progressive KO ran till 1:44 AM, registering a 30,000 overlay shortfall on the back of 294 entries. Amar ‘AceConsultant’ Mehta captured the title for a third time yesterday, netting a cool 2.60 Lakhs payday in the process. A four-way deal saw PokerStars India regular Amit ‘Stu Ungar 7694’ Kaushik (2nd for1.37 Lakhs), ‘The Annihilator’ (3rd for 1.17 Lakhs) and Rishab ‘NoChan(3’ Malik (4th for 1.35 Lakhs) banking the other top payouts.

Commencing precisely two-and-a-half hours after the Sunday Special was the 12 Lakhs GTD Sunday Highroller. With a turnout of 111 runners, the 11,000 entry buy-in event fell 90,000 short of breaking even. ‘karansc111’ topped the field to win 2.76 Lakhs. The former Grand Mega Suits champion Shagun ‘Sogani22’ Jain booked the runner-up spot for 2.12 Lakhs.

The BSS series, as each Sunday, was headlined by the 20 Lakhs GTD BSS#4 SuperStack. It clocked in 413 contenders, posting a 20.65 Lakhs prize pool. Aayush ‘Goyal0279’ Goyal raced past the competition to collect a personal-best 4.15 Lakhs for his outright victory. Aviral ‘neverfoldlaundry’ Jain had to settle for a second-place payout worth 2.90 Lakhs. Aayush Goyal now has 32.49 Lakhs in recorded earnings on PokerBaazi.

Sporting a 2,200 entry buy-in, the Main Event locked in 1,456 entries, making for a guarantee-crushing 29.12 Lakhs prize pool. Vaibhav ‘WakhraSwagNi’ Sharma had missed shipping the BSS#4 SuperStack, falling two places short, in third place for 1.87 Lakhs. He more than made up for it by taking down the IMPS#46 Main Event title for a hefty 4.89 Lakhs. ‘nik3105’ finished runner-up for 3.43 Lakhs, and Ram ‘mowgumotu’ Kakkar rounded out the top three IMPS Main Event payouts, finishing third for 2.22 Lakhs.
