Team India’s run at the ongoing 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) has undoubtedly kept the railbird back home entertained. However, Young Gun Gaurav Sood’s spectacular Sunday antics amped up the action on the virtual felts! The 25-year-old has been unstoppable these two years. Yesterday, he proved yet again why he is the winningest player in the country by taking down the two biggest tournaments that were running – Adda52’s DOPT Highroller and Spartan Poker’s The Prestige – for a monstrous ₹22.85 Lakhs overall, crossing ₹4 Crores in annual winnings.
Sandeep Thakral took second place in the DOPT Highroller for ₹8.50 Lakhs, while the IOPC Blaze of Glory champion Harshad Barve placed runner-up in The Prestige for ₹5.63 Lakhs.
Abhishek Chaurasia shipped the Sunday Superstack for ₹6.70 Lakhs, while veteran pro Jasven Saigal won PokerBaazi’s BSS SuperStack for ₹4.20 Lakhs.
PokerStars India`s Diwali Rush Series is on its last legs, with just the Diwali Rush-#23 Main Event left to crown a champion. Day 1 ended with Young Gun Anmol Mehta headlining the 111 runners to Day 2 from a 374-player starting field.
Sanchit Nag, Siddharth Pandey, Mukesh Surana, Shubhadip Dasgupta, Siddharth Kadel, Mohak Kapoor, Shawn Chatterton, Alok Kumar, Amit Jaiswal, and Siddhanth Kapoor shipped the other Sunday marquees!

Spartan Poker’s ₹50 Lakhs GTD The Prestige came back for its second edition this past weekend and the ₹5,500 buy-in event locked in 953 entries, filling in ₹2.35 Lakhs in overlays. Young Gun Gaurav ‘mozzie17’ Sood was the last player standing and won ₹9.25 Lakhs, while the IOPC Blaze of Glory champion Harshad ‘omglukbox’ Barve banked a runner-up payout worth ₹5.63 Lakhs.
What can we possibly say about Gaurav Sood that we haven’t already said before?! The poker prodigy has been sitting at the top of the annual leaderboard rankings for 14 consecutive weeks. Given his current form, it seems indubitable that he will successfully defend his title of being India’s top-ranked online pro for the second straight year!
The dentist-turned-poker pro was in trailblazing form last night as he not only shipped his career-first The Prestige title but also took down Adda52’s DOPT Highroller. This, along with a deep run in DOPT Epic, fetched him ₹22.85 Lakhs cumulatively.

PokerStars India`s Diwali Rush Series has been one of the major MTT attractions during the festive week. The centerpiece of the series, the ₹75 Lakhs GTD Diwali Rush-23 Main Event (₹15 Lakhs for 1st), headlined the Sunday proceedings on the site, and 374 hopefuls joined the Day 1 action. Only 111 of them survived the 18 levels of play to make it to Day 2, scheduled to start at 8 PM today. Late registrations to the Main Event are open until 9:30 PM.

The other Sunday marquee, the ₹10 Lakhs GTD Diwali Rush-26 The Big Crunch, experienced a shortfall worth ₹82,500 after 367 contestants ponied up ₹2,750 to enter the event. The event paid out 39 places, and the user ‘Anantaum’ got the biggest cut of the prize pool, a ₹1.64 Lakhs winner’s payday, while ‘thekiterunner’ settled for a runner-up payout worth ₹1.04 Lakhs.

This Young Gun is truly a trailblazer!! A day ago, we had reported how Gaurav Sood has completed 14 weeks on top of the annual leaderboard but is dangerously close to losing the top spot to Manish Lakhotia. The dentist-turned-poker pro had a fabulous Sunday grind and won two flagships, cementing his reign on the annual leaderboard! Sood overcame a reg-laden field of 156 contestants to win Adda52’s ₹50 Lakhs GTD DOPT Highroller for a whopping ₹13.50 Lakhs. Sandeep ‘thak’ Thakral finished runner-up for ₹8.50 Lakhs.
Despite the attractive Sunday offerings on the opening day of the series, most DOPT events were made to fill in significant overlays. The DOPT Highroller topped the list with a landslide ₹11 Lakhs shortfall.
The ₹20 Lakhs GTD DOPT Epic also added to the overlay woes with its 459-entry field, resulting in an overlay worth ₹1.36 Lakhs. ‘Happyfish’ (anonymity requested) was the last player standing and won ₹5.20 Lakhs after denying Ritwik ‘ritwik27’ Khanna in heads-up play.
For Ritwik Khanna, the runner-up score of ₹2.95 Lakhs was the smaller of the two FT scores he posted on Adda52 last night. Khanna placed third in the DOPT Highroller for ₹6.25 Lakhs. His net Sunday winnings came in at ₹10.08 Lakhs.
Ritwik Khanna`s ITM finishes include
> 3rd in the DOPT Highroller ₹50 Lakhs GTD for ₹6.25 Lakhs
> 2nd in the DOPT Epic ₹20 Lakhs GTD for ₹2.95 Lakhs
> 13th in the Sunday Superstack ₹30 Lakhs GTD for ₹51,671
