On the eve of India’s 75th Independence Day, the online felts lit up with action! While Spartan Poker’s inaugural Freedom Celebration Series (FCS) is nearly over (with only the ₹2.50 Lakhs GTD Freedom Freeroll left to play out), PokerBaazi’s first-ever Baazi Turbo Series (BTS) got off to a rousing start yesterday, making for an electrifying Sunday.

For the low to mid-stakes players, Pocket52’s Pocket Poker Championship will be firing up its fifth edition today, ensuring non-stop action across stakes in the coming week!

With so much happening all across, several players delivered trailblazing runs. However, the one player who towered over everyone else was MPL Poker pro Siddharth Karia! The MBA graduate from Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, made away with a jaw-dropping ₹23 Lakhs last night and wrote his name into the history books as Spartan Poker’s first-ever FCS Main Event champion, taking home a mind-boggling ₹21.30 Lakhs! The unknown Spartan Poker reg and former Millionaire Series – Main Event champion ‘Pradzzz’ pocketed ₹20.17 Lakhs in second place, courtesy of a heads-up deal.

The #3 ranked player of the year, Young Gun Arsh Grover, raked in a seven-figure payday worth ₹11.76 Lakhs, cashing ₹10.84 Lakhs of that from his third-place finish in the FCS #99 – High – Main Event.

Poker coach Abhishek Goindi broke a six-month-long title drought by shipping Spartan Poker`s FCS#92 – High – Sunday Celebration for ₹7.48 Lakhs, following a heads-up deal. He cashed another two events, collectively adding ₹8.37 Lakhs.

The IPC Megastacks High Roller champion Alok Birewar came close to winning a Sunday flagship thrice last night, with his deepest run being his runner-up finish in Spartan Poker`s FCS#92 – High – Sunday Celebration worth ₹7.41 Lakhs. With six ITM finishes, the circuit-regular packed in a whopping ₹12.44 Lakhs in Sunday winnings.

Guneet Kwatra was the last player standing in Adda52’s Mega Suits and clinched the title for ₹6.05 Lakhs. He collectively pocketed ₹7.90 Lakhs through three deep runs.

Anish Arora won the Adda52 Millions for a career-best ₹5.61 Lakhs after striking a heads-up deal with Amit Kaushik (2nd for ₹5.55 Lakhs). Arora and Kaushik posted multiple scores, with Arora collectively netting ₹6.28 Lakhs and Kaushik banking ₹8.27 Lakhs.

Pritam Amritkar drove up the Sunday action on PokerBaazi by winning the BTS opening day headliner, BTS#4 Sunday Prime, for a career-best ₹4.82 Lakhs. He bested MTT crusher Sriharsha Doddapaneni (2nd for ₹3.38 Lakhs) heads-up. Amritkar locked in ₹4.97 Lakhs through five Sunday ITM finishes, while Doddapaneni accumulated an even better ₹6.38 Lakhs across his Sunday run.
