PokerStars India’s “Star of the Month” (SOTM) – February race completed its Week #2 run on Sunday, and as always, there is a new batch of 25 qualifiers winning a ticket for the month-ending Finale. The February Finale is to be held on February 24 at 9 PM.

Monday`s Bigstack Turbo winner, Abhishek Sonu, tops the Week #2 standings. He got to work early and FT-ed three more tourneys through the week to take a convincing lead with 776 TLB points.

Sitting at #2 behind Abhishek Sonu is Sreeharsha Boneni (595 points), with top regs Goonjan Mall (570 points) and Kunal Patni (454 points) next on the list. Rounding out the top-five is Tuesday`s Night on Stars champion Shivam Shukla (426 points).

The Finale promises to be a fiercely contested one as several circuit regs; namely, Parth Aggarwal (403 points), Ranjeet Negi (363 points), Manish Lakhotia (306 points), Chirag Sodha (262 points), Sandy Lamba (244 points), Rubin Labroo (230 points), Vikram Mishra (221 points), Anish Garg (218 points), Chandan Arora (207 points), and Shravan Chhabria (203 points) are among the Week #2 qualifiers.

Monday to Saturday – 7.30 PM and 10.30 PM

Sunday – 5 PM and 10.30 PM

The top 25 ranked players on the leaderboard standings each week (Monday-Sunday) get enlisted for the month-ending Finale. In case a player has qualified in previous weeks, the next ranked player is given the ticket, hence ensuring a 100-player quorum for the Finale. The Finale winner is declared the “Star of the Month” and wins tournament tickets worth ₹1.15 Lakhs on the site and a PokerStars India branded goodie bag. The runner-up finisher receives MTT tickets worth ₹35,000.
