And it finally happened! The first eight-figure guaranteed tourney of 2021 – Spartan Poker’s ₹1.5 Crores GTD IOPC#24 The Millionaire United is officially in the books.

The first Millionaire tourney of the 10th edition of IOPC culminated last night with online beast Siddhanth Kripalani adding another feather to his cap. The young lad already has two Destiny titles, a Game Changer title and a WPT trophy under his belt, so it was only a matter of time before he added a Millionaire win to his name. And he clinched that missing title last night after toppling a ginormous 2,278-entry field to win a mouth-watering ₹26.70 Lakhs!

Goonjan Mall (runner-up for ₹14.70 Lakhs) and Sahil Mahboobani (3rd for ₹10.17 Lakhs) also banked seven-figures for rounding up the top three positions in the IOPC The Millionaire United.

Young Gun Sahil Chutani was among the breakout performers on Sunday for championing not one but two flagship titles, namely, Adda52’s ₹30 Lakhs GTD Mega Suits, and PokerStars India’s ₹17 Lakhs GTD Winter Series-02 Sunday Special SE, for a cumulative ₹11.18 Lakhs.

The 2020 leaderboard topper, Young Gun Gaurav Sood, raked in a whopping ₹9+ Lakhs on Sunday, ₹8.63 Lakhs of that for shipping Spartan Poker’s ₹50 Lakhs GTD IOPC#22 Sunday Superstack and final tabling PokerStars India’s ₹17 Lakhs GTD Winter Series-03 Sunday Highroller SE.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the Sunday highlights!

 

Spartan Poker

The first Millionaire tourney of the IOPC January edition, i.e., the ₹1.5 Crores GTD IOPC#24 The Millionaire United, found a champion last night on Spartan Poker. A colossal field of 2,278 entries was registered across five starting flights, resulting in a guarantee-smashing ₹1.59 Crores prize pool. The Day 1A chip leader, Siddhanth ‘PluRibu$’ Kripalani, barrelled his way to the top to claim his career-first Millionaire title for a jaw-dropping ₹26.70 Lakhs!

2020 was a breakout year for Kripalani, who was the one player to win back-to-back Destiny titles. He won his first Destiny title on April 1 and the second one on the subsequent Wednesday on April 8. He also clinched the Game Changer 3.0 and WPT India Super High Roller titles last year. This was the former PMVS#24 Main Event SuperStack champion’s first title win of 2021, taking his overall online winnings to ₹2.64 Crores.

Online regular Goonjan ‘gmtesting’ Mall finished runner-up in the Millionaire United for ₹14.70 Lakhs, while Sahil ‘ImHighIshove’ Mahboobani came in third for ₹10.17 Lakhs.

Usually, PokerStars India’s Sunday schedule is headlined by two ₹15 Lakhs GTD tournaments, the Sunday Special and the Sunday Highroller. However, with the much-awaited Winter Series commencing it’s run, both the Sunday flagships had their guarantees spiked to ₹17 Lakhs.

The first event on the line-up, the Winter Series-02 Sunday Special SE, witnessed an overlay of ₹60,000 on the back of 328 entries. Young Gun Sahil ‘allezjuju’ Chutani was unstoppable last night as he championed the event for ₹3.99 Lakhs (₹1.63 Lakhs in prize money, ₹2.35 Lakhs in bounties). Vinay ‘VlNAY09’ Rajpal placed runner-up for ₹1.60 Lakhs (₹1.19 Lakhs in prize money, ₹40,781 in bounties). Rajpal’s runner-up finish helped him touch the ₹2 Crore-mark in online earnings.

Adda52

Lighting up the Sunday MTT schedule on Adda52 was the ₹30 Lakhs GTD Mega Suits that logged in 519 participants, falling a glaring ₹4.05 Lakhs short of its listed guarantee. The ₹5,500 entry buy-in tourney last for about 10 hours before the Sunday Special champion, Young Gun Sahil ‘bluffme19’ Chutani, outlasted ‘ctf’ (runner-up for ₹4.20 Lakhs) heads-up to win ₹7.20 Lakhs. This happens to be Chutani’s second-best score on Adda52, taking his overall site-cashes to ₹86.94 Lakhs.

The ₹12.5 Lakhs GTD Big Slick sadly fell right back into the overlay pit. Clocking in 472 entries wasn’t enough to avoid the ₹1.88 Lakhs shortfall. PokerGuru Ambassador Nadeem ‘nadeem0021’ Basha, who had finished runner-up in Thursday’s ₹25 Lakhs GTD Godfather shipped the event for ₹2.37 Lakhs. Haider ‘donktown22’ Madraswala came in second for ₹1.74 Lakhs. Following this win, Basha has crossed ₹3.42 Crores in online earnings.
