The online action reached a feverish peak on Sunday with massive guaranteed flagships donning the domestic and international sites! With Spartan Poker’s IOPC, the Adda52 Poker Fest (APF), and PokerBaazi’s IMPS playing down to a close and the 2020 WSOP Online series running six bracelet events on GGPoker and Natural8, this was a Sunday unlike any other.

While many top pros and upcoming players were vying for the title in the Sunday marquees, India’s first solo WSOP gold bracelet winner Abhinay Iyer was chasing a second bracelet in Event #33: $1,111 Every 1 for COVID Relief (Caesar’s Cares). He came excruciatingly close but ultimately fell out in fourth place for $127,571.28 (~₹95.36 Lakhs). Here is a complete recap.

 

Spartan Poker

The biggest-ever India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) July Edition is finally in the books! The magnum opus of the series, the ₹3 Crores GTD IOPC Main Event –The Crown turned out to be a record-breaking success! Gathering 4,081 entries through eight starting flights, the IOPC Main Event posted the biggest-ever prize pool worth ₹4.08 Crores in the series’s history. The only event that has to-date surpassed this record was PokerBaazi’s End Boss ₹5 Crores GTD that had generated a ₹5.85 Crores prize pool on the back of 5,847 entries. 535 runners had advanced to Day 2, and only 495 of them finished in the money.

Kanpur-based entrepreneur Harshit’ HeroCaller’ Sanghi sky-rocketed to the top and decimated the competition to don the IOPC Main Event crown! The 24-year-old took home a personal-best, jaw-dropping ₹47.33 Lakhs, following a three-way deal with Kunal’ Alex52’ Bhatia (runner-up for ₹42.36 Lakhs) and Sumit’ Sands Myth’ Sapra (3rd for ₹32.20 Lakhs). With this phenomenal win, Sanghi has touched ₹52.69 Lakhs in recorded winnings.

Bhatia, who is currently based in Chandigarh, is an entrepreneur. A mid to high-stakes player, Bhatia’s poker resume is dotted with title wins like the Godfather and the Sunday SuperStack. He was also part of the 2017 Poker Sports League (PSL) Season 1 winning team Delhi Panthers. With the runner-up finish, Bhatia has boosted his online scorecard to ₹92.44 Lakhs, out of which ₹57.47 Lakhs he has earned on Spartan Poker.

APL Ambassador Sapra is one of the most reputable names of the Indian poker circuit. Sapra has scored multiple times in the series and is one of the very few Indian pros sitting with over ₹5 Crores in recorded online winnings.

Poker coach Prabhat Kiran ‘Cassandra’ Mukherjea (6th for ₹10.85 Lakhs) and Madan ‘madsysman’ Kumar (9th for ₹4.88 Lakhs) also featured on the final table.

With the IOPC Main Event attracting all the attention, some of the other events on the IOPC roster suffered overlays. The ₹60 Lakhs GTD IOPC Sunday SuperStack was one such event. Though 1,184 contenders did pony-up the ₹5,500 buy-in, it wasn’t enough to avoid the ₹80,000 overlay. ‘Rolling1’ emerged as the victor and walked away with a ₹11.30 Lakhs payout and ‘GoldSpot’ finished runner-up for ₹6.87 Lakhs. The champion also placed fourth in the IOPC#119 ₹6.5 Lakhs GTD for ₹46,735.

The latest Millionaire Legends champion Sriharsha’ Potato Player’ Doddapaneni was also seen gunning for the title, but sadly fell four places short of the Sunday SuperStack title, placing fifth for ₹2.88 Lakhs.

Sathish ‘Jaqkten’ Ananth championed the IOPC Big Daddy ₹15 Lakhs GTD for ₹2.18 Lakhs, after a three-way deal with Sujith ‘dancingshrimp’ Kumar (runner-up for ₹1.99 Lakhs) and ‘ConMan’ (3rd for ₹1.86 Lakhs).

The other winners were ‘cantwinflips’ (IOPC#115 ₹6 Lakhs GTD for ₹1.29 Lakhs), ‘American Airlines’ (IOPC#119 ₹6.5 Lakhs GTD for ₹1.08 Lakhs) and Sethuram ‘Setherson8’ Kannan (IOPC #116 Monster Stack ₹5 Lakhs GTD for ₹83,315).

The Destiny IOPC Edition SnG Finale was one of the featured events on the closing day of the IOPC series. Siddarth ‘PeterPunter’ Singhvi from Pune won the event for 2.50 Lakhs, while PokerGuru Ambassador Ankit ‘Shippament’ Wadhawan (runner-up for ₹1.50 Lakhs) and Anirudh ‘flash’ Reddy (3rd for ₹1 Lakhs) rounded out the three ITM finishes.

With the IOPC July now done and dusted, the IOPC Leaderboards have also closed. Topping the list was seasoned pro Bhanu ‘spectre’ Prakash, who garnered 16,296 to win ₹50 Lakhs in bonus money, over and above what he has already won in the series! Deepak ‘chimpoo’ Bothra came in second with 15,512 points for ₹20 Lakhs and ‘bluffer’ placed third from 14,368 points, pocketing ₹10 Lakhs.

Adda52

The Adda52 Poker Fest (AFP) culminated in the wee hours of Monday morning. The second ₹1 Crore GTD APF Full House drew 1,761 entries across six starting flights. Similar to the first Full House, the second edition, too, suffered an overlay. While the previous edition had an overlay of ₹3.35 Lakhs, this time, the tourney experienced a massive overlay of ₹11.95 Lakhs. Making good use of the value on offer, well-known player Apoorva ‘‘DPT.54’ Goel obliterated the competition and banked a whopping₹21 Lakhs. Promising young talent Vinay ‘vinay0902’ Rajpal claimed the runner-up spot for an equally commendable ₹13.20 Lakhs.

The ₹25 Lakhs GTD APF Millions had the highest buy-in of the Sunday schedule worth ₹11,000. 254 entries were registered, collecting ₹25.40 Lakhs in the prize pool. Arjunn ‘HaanMeinFlipHoon’ Agrawal juggernaut to the top of the field and bagged a ₹5.37 Lakhs top prize, following a heads-up chop with ‘BobbyAxelrod’ (runner-up for ₹5.16 Lakhs).

The ₹15 Lakhs GTD APF Big Slick dragged in 581 entries, and the site had to fill in an overlay of ₹1.92 Lakhs. ‘tsb2127’ captured the title and top prize of ₹2.74 Lakhs. PokerGuru Ambassador Rohit ‘rohit22rm’ Mishra netted ₹2 Lakhs for his runner-up finish.

 

PokerBaazi

The Sunday staple event on PokerBaazi was the ₹25 Lakhs GTD BSS SuperStack. With Spartan Poker’s IOPC Main Event and Adda52’s APF Full House Finale generating so much interest, the BSS SuperStack predictably failed to meet its guarantee. After gathering 485 entries, the event suffered an overlay of ₹75,000. Abhishek ‘ketchup’ Kumar topped the field after besting PokerGuru Ambassador Ashutosh ‘senojwod’ Balodhi (runner-up for ₹3.52 Lakhs) heads-up to win₹5.02 Lakhs.

The first-ever Indian Micro Poker Series (IMPS) also concluded yesterday with the ₹20 Lakhs GTD IMPS#121 Main Event crowning a champion in Chiraag ‘Versutus’ Patel! The former APPT Manila champion had come close to clinching the BSS SuperStack title, but fell short by two spots, finishing third for ₹2.26 Lakhs. He battled against Pranav ‘mithrandir16’ Anand heads-up in the IMPS Main Event, with Patel walking away with a winner’s paycheque worth ₹3.52 Lakhs, taking his overall recorded online earnings to ₹1.91 Crores. Anand took home ₹2.41 Lakhs in second-place prize money. Featuring a buy-in of ₹550, the IMPS Main Event logged in 4,263 entries across four starting flights, collecting ₹21.32 Lakhs in the prize pool.

Two other marquee events that played out on PokerBaazi last night was the BSS MegaStack ₹8 Lakhs GTD that was won by ‘shay88’ for ₹1.77 Lakhs and the BSS Monster 6-Max ₹5 Lakhs GTD that was shipped by Prateek ‘prana’ Rana for ₹1.21 Lakhs.

 

PokerStars India

The ₹18 Lakhs GTD Sunday Special Progressive KO commenced at 5 PM on PokerStars India and logged in 367 entries by the time the late registrations period closed. For a change this week, this event locked in a profitable ₹18.35 Lakhs prize pool. After 10 hours of play, poker vlogger Raj ‘rsj75’ Shrestha Juneja emerged victorious and claimed a ₹2.83 Lakhs top prize, after striking a heads-up deal with ‘Infic11’ (runner-up for ₹2.07 Lakhs).

The Sunday Highroller ₹15 Lakhs GTD didn’t do as well as the Sunday Special. After clocking in 129 entries, the tourney experienced a shortfall of ₹2.1 Lakhs. Former Millionaire Lite winner Sreekanth ‘LaganaHiToHai’ Narayan took down the event for ₹3.28 Lakhs, just as ‘sunny9456’ came in second for ₹2.43 Lakhs. Narayan has been in top form over the past few weeks and shipped PokerBaazi’s

The Ridge ₹10 Lakhs GTD on July 17 and BSS SuperStack ₹25 Lakhs GTD on July 19. He presently has ₹1.92 Crores in recorded online winnings.

PokerBaazi’s Game Changer 2.0 champion Shagun ‘Sogani22’ Jain deserves a special mention for final tabling both the Sunday Special (3rd for ₹1.35 Lakhs) and the Sunday Highroller (7th for ₹54,510).
