Ever since the lockdown-induced surge in MTT guarantees, we have become accustomed to witnessing 1 Crore GTD tourneys playing out over the weekend. Well, this past Sunday had no such offering; nevertheless, it was still an eventful day for Team PokerGuru. Three PokerGuru Ambassadors, namely Ashutosh Balodhi, Ankit Wadhawan, and Vivek Singh clinched top-tier tourney titles, while several others posted deep runs.

While the action on the domestic felt may have slowed down a bit, the international felt has picked up the pace with the $10,000 No-Limit Hold-em World Championship going live on the GGPoker Network for international players last night.

So, without further ado, let’s check out the Sunday highlights!


Spartan Poker

The 35 Lakhs GTD Sunday Superstack ran its usual course on Spartan Poker yesterday. After clocking in 715 entries, the event accrued a guarantee-smashing 35.75 Lakhs prize pool. The primetime tourney saw Guneet ‘GeeKay’ Kwatra gunning for the title, but he lost out to Anand Babu ‘OrangeZuce’ Pallikona, who captured the title for a 6.89 lakhs payday. Kwatra had to contend with a runner-up finish worth 4.34 Lakhs.

Coming off an over two-month-long title drought, Kwatra charted a phenomenal run on Sunday. He more than made up for his narrow miss in the Sunday Superstack by taking down PokerStars India’s DIWALI RUSH-52 Sunday Highroller, banking 8+ Lakhs for the day.

The champion Pallikona has made a habit of winning the Sunday Superstack. He had shipped it more than a year ago in May 2019 and made another run for the title in July 2020, where he ultimately placed second. He presently sits on 83.73 Lakhs in recorded earnings on Spartan Poker, with a profit of 23.20 Lakhs.

The 8.50 Lakhs GTD Money Heist logged in 284 entries, generating a 8.52 Lakhs prize pool. Aditya ‘loosecannon’ Bahl was the last player standing in the tourney. He defeated the first-ever Millionaire United champion Mahima Walia ‘mambojojo’ Das (runner-up for 1.27 Lakhs) heads-up to grab a winner’s payout worth 1.88 Lakhs.

PokerStars India’s Diwali Rush series culminated yesterday. The mega event of the series, the 50 Lakhs GTD DIWALI RUSH-51 Main Event, recorded 602 participants, overlaying a whopping 7.86 Lakhs. The 7,700 entry buy-in tourney took almost 10 hours of non-stop play yesterday to find a winner. Traversing the field, in the end, was PokerGuru Ambassador Ashutosh ‘Msnugget’ Balodhi, who pocketed the colossal 9.22 Lakhs (5,07,492 in prize money and 4,14,531 in bounties) top prize after beating out our latest Young Gun Neel ‘Worm236’ Joshi in heads-up play. Joshi took home 4.44 Lakhs in prize money. Balodhi now has 73.74 Lakhs in annual winnings, while his lifetime MTT scores have touched 1.77 Crores after last night`s score.

With the Diwali Rush Main Event running, the site skipped the Sunday Special yesterday; however, the 18 Lakhs GTD DIWALI RUSH-52 Sunday Highroller SE did take place. Registering 193 contenders, the 11,000 entry buy-in event easily smashed its advertised guarantee, posting a massive 19.30 Lakhs prize pool. The former Millionaire champion Guneet ‘GSK1515’ Kwatra took down the tourney for 3.83 Lakhs, outlasting Binit ‘puntertwoseven’ Saraf – who placed second for 2.84 Lakhs.

Kwatra, who had won Adda52’s ₹1 Crore GTD AOPS Mini ME Finale on August 9, came close to bagging a second Sunday title in Spartan Poker’s Sunday SuperStack. He ultimately placed runner-up for 4.34 Lakhs. He also final tabled the Money Heist, ranking seventh for 31,865, raking in a cumulative 8.46 Lakhs for the day. Last night, his phenomenal performance has propelled his lifetime winnings across the 4 Crore-mark (4.02 Crores).

Besides the Sunday Highroller, the other event that awarded TLB points for the ongoing ‘Star of the Month’ November leaderboard race was the 2 Lakhs GTD DIWALI RUSH-54 Ultrasonic. The event brought together 201 entrants, generating a 2.01 Lakhs prize pool. Kapil ‘racemonk’ Arora championed the tourney to win 43,021 while ‘Marvolo10’ placed second for 25,405.

With no Full House or Grand Mega Suits in sight, it was a relatively quiet Sunday on Adda52. The site’s biggest guarantee tournament on Sunday was the 25 Lakhs GTD Adda52 Millions. Sporting a 11,000 entry buy-in, the event cruised past its listed guarantee to collect 25.70 Lakhs in the prize pool after locking in 257 entries. Kamal ‘ksn123’ Naruka traversed the crowded field and clinched the title, along with a personal-best 6.68 Lakhs. Naruka wrestled past Goonjan ‘gmtesting’ Mall (runner-up for 3.98 Lakhs) in the heads-up showdown and is now sitting atop 1.56 Crores in online earnings.

The other Sunday marquee, the 12.50 Lakhs GTD Big Slick, logged in 582 entries, generating 13.09 Lakhs in the prize pool. PokerGuru Ambassador Ankit ‘d00mtr00p3r’ Wadhawan had won Spartan Poker’s ₹10 Lakhs GTD TGIF on November 27. Persisting with his winning form, he added the Big Slick title to his tally, collecting 2.39 Lakhs in the process. This is Wadhwan’s fifth tourney victory this month, and last night`s score has pushed his overall online earnings to 4.31 Crores. Yash ‘yashshri’ Shrivastava booked a runner-up payday worth 1.75 Lakhs.

The Sunday staple event on PokerBaazi, the 20 Lakhs GTD BSS SuperStack, gathered 387 entries, registering an overlay deficit of 65,000. A little over eight hours later, online phenom Sagar ‘sagarpupul’ Choudhury came out on top and bagged the 4.20 Lakhs winner’s payday.

Ankur ‘Stonecold’ Sehgal came in second for 2.94 Lakhs. Choudhury now has 4.59 Crores in MTT cashes, about 2.20 Crores of which he has earned in 2020.

PokerBaazi had two 5 Lakhs GTDs events playing out on Sunday, the BSS MegaStack and BSS Monster 6-Max.

The BSS MegaStack drew 200 entries to just about meet its proposed guarantee. PokerGuru Ambassador Vivek ‘Nutpeddling729’ Singh bested fellow Team Ambassador Tathagata ‘Tintin84’ Sengupta (runner-up for 84,650) heads-up to win 1.21 Lakhs.

The latest edition of the PokerBaazi Bankroll Builder Series (PBBS) came to an end last night with the 2 Lakhs GTD PBBS#34 Main Event crowning a champion in ‘MADPOKER2192.’ The winner triumphed over a field of 749 entries accumulated across six starting flights to win 37,460, ultimately defeating Sumeet ‘Sumitsingh199’ Rajpurohit (runner-up for 25,640) in the heads-up finale.

Besides the winners, two more players deserve a special mention, Manish Lakhotia and Young Gun Ujjwal Narwal.

Lakhotia final tabled three tourneys last night, namely, Adda52’s Big Slick (3rd for 1.28 Lakhs), Spartan Poker’s Money Heist (4th for 71,483) and PokerBaazi’s BSS Monster 6-Max (4th for 41,500), collecting 2.41 Lakhs overall.
