January is off to an excellent start, and the second Sunday of 2021 was far more electrifying than the first, with two ₹50 Lakhs GTD tourneys running in tandem.

One of the weekend headliners, the IOPC Contender, a frontrunner to the upcoming IOPC 2021 January Edition, was championed by former Millionaire champion Guneet Kwatra for ₹7.22 Lakhs. However, the day`s single-biggest score belonged to the other ₹50 Lakhs GTD tourney winner, the first-ever Adda52 Big Game champion Rahul Jain, who netted a whopping ₹15.64 Lakhs for his win.

There is a lot more to look forward to with Spartan Poker’s IOPC January Edition and the first-ever APT 2021 Online Series India on PokerBaazi, both slated to begin on January 15.

Let’s take a look at the highlights of the Sunday action!

 

Spartan Poker

Spearheading the Sunday action on Spartan Poker was the pre-runner for the upcoming IOPC mega-series, the ₹50 Lakhs GTD IOPC Contender. The ₹3,300 entry buy-in tourney dragged in 1,577 entries across three starting flights, registering an overlay of ₹2.69 Lakhs. A total of 212 stacks were carried forward to Day 2, and this included 181 unique entries.

Claiming his first title victory of 2021, the former Millionaire champion Guneet’ GeeKay’ Kwatra came out on top to win ₹7.22 Lakhs. A heads-up chop ensured that runner-up Ramji’ bluffpolice123’ Kishore G took home ₹6.66 Lakhs in cash prize. After this win, Kwatra’s overall online earnings have crossed ₹4.36 Crores.
