For most people Sundays is a day to sit back, relax and let the stress of the past week fade away. But for poker players, it’s the day to bring out their A-game. Like every other week, this past Sunday too was full of thrilling poker action and hefty payouts.

India’s most trusted poker site is gearing up to launch the biggest online poker tournament in the history of Indian poker – ‘The Game Changer 2 Crores GTD. With a buy-in of ₹11,000, the tournament assures ₹50 Lakhs in prize money to the eventual champion. If you want to be a part of this historic event, all you have to do is participate in the PokerBaazi Game Changer Blog Contest’! There are three tickets up for grabs and you can check out the details here.

While there are still two more days to go before The Game Changer kicks-off, lets us take a look at who were the big winners last Sunday. The most popular event on PokerBaazi’s Sunday schedule is undoubtedly the Baazi Super Sunday (BSS) SuperStack ₹25 Lakhs GTD. The tournament drew in 563 entries (325 unique and 238 re-entries), overshooting its guarantee to reach ₹28,15,000. Seasoned pro Jaideep ‘GoneClubbing’ Sajwan decimated the field to clinch the title. Sajwan, who finished 10th in the ₹35K SuperStack at the 2018 WPT India for ₹1.49 Lakhs, is a well-known name in the domestic poker circuit. He was up against Rohan ‘AnshAA’ Soman in the final showdown of the event but played exceptionally well to bag a ginormous payout of ₹4.96 Lakhs.

PokerStars India’s Sunday Special ₹15 Lakhs GTD is another high-value tournament which often attracts a big entry field. This past Sunday, the event pulled in 345 entries (198 unique and 147 re-entries) and crowned a winner in Pranav ‘dak0o’ Bang. Bang’s path to victory wasn’t easy as the nine-handed final table feature some heavyweights like Pranav ‘pkpok13’ Khandalkar (4th for ₹1.24 Lakhs), Sahil inaboobham Mahboobani (5th for ₹75,618) and Shravan lukBo$$13 Chhabria (7th for ₹55,862). He squared off against ‘Infic11‘ in the heads-up confrontation and defeated him to collect a top prize worth ₹4.10 Lakhs.

There were several pros from the PokerGuru Staking clinching scores this Sunday. Kartik TheInternetKid Ved final tabled the BSS SuperStack ₹25 Lakhs GTD (6th for ₹81,635) even as fellow Team PokerGuru ambassador, Shashank ‘indianrat’ Desai (The Monster 6-Max ₹5 Lakhs GTD (RE) – 7th for ₹16,774) and Faiz ‘AilaGaya’ Alam (BSS MegaStack ₹5 Lakhs GTD (RE) – 3rd for ₹52,700) enjoyed deep runs.
