What a thrilling week it has been for PokerGuru Ambassadors both on the live, and virtual felts! PokerGuru Ambassador Ashish Ahuja seems to be enjoying his time in Las Vegas having already popped his WSOP cherry with a 142nd place finish in Event #16: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed for $2,742 (~1.90 Lakhs). He is confirmed to add to this – having made it to Day 3 in the Millionaire Maker. Ahuja’s fellow Team Ambassador Ratul ‘luna’ Steves has been keeping busy as well. Steves was the biggest online winner last night when he obliterated a field of 3,140 entries in PokerBaazi’s 1 Crores GTD ValueBomb, banking a colossal 16.20 Lakhs in the process.

Another big winner was online reg Chirag Sodha, who won not one – but two of the biggest Sunday tournaments. He took down both the Baazi Super Sunday SuperStack and the PokerStars India Sunday Special – PKO.

Across the other PokerBaazi tournaments, ‘TheTooth’ (The Monster 6-Max 5 Lakhs GTD (RE) for 1.28 Lakhs), ‘mithirandir16’ (BSS PLO 5 Lakhs GTD (RE) for 1.26 Lakhs), Santosh ‘drex7’ Kumar (Grinders#33 Main Event 5 Lakh GTD (RE) for 1.07 Lakhs), ‘rajanverma’ (Weekly Super 5 5 Lakhs GTD for 76,750), and Cashmax’ (Sunday 1 Lakh GTD (RE) for 17,500) claimed titles.

PokerStars India crowned winners in ‘modi chai wala’ (Progressive KO – 4 Max 3 Lakhs GTD for 68,947), Anuj ‘brockLesnar95’ Yadav (The Sunday Stars 2,200 NLHE 2 Lakhs GTD for 53,161), Armaan ‘armaan007111’ Kochhar (Sunday Warm-Up 1.5 Lakhs GTD for 33,265), ‘maverickak56’ (Sunday Supersonic 1 Lakh GTD for 26,580), and ‘GM2318’ (Sunday Storm 330 NLHE (6-Max) 1 Lakh GTD for 14,966).

Up-and-coming poker site, UMA Poker, ran its ‘UMA Felters’ series from June 5 to 9. The star attraction of the series was the 11,000 buy-in ₹40 Lakhs GTD Felter Main Event which was taken down last night by Kanha ‘konireddy’ Khera for an impressive ₹7.20 Lakhs payday.

On Khelo 365 the list of Sunday winners includes ‘poongavanam’ (Raise Deep Stack 1.5 Lakhs GTD for 69,000), and ‘shatsy93’ (Big Splash 75K GTD NLHE for 34,500).
