Sunday`s are always the biggest day of the week online for MTT players. Even so, yesterday was especially massive, with all major platforms putting up whopping guarantees across their flagships. Spartan Poker`s UVS Millionaire Lite, Adda52`s Full House, and PokerStars India`s INSCOOP series were the featured attractions of the day. Let’s take a look at who won what on Sunday.
It’s been a Millionaire feast at Spartan Poker in May as the site has played host to a Millionaire edition every Sunday this month. This Sunday was devoted to the UVS The Millionaire Lite ₹35 Lakhs GTD. Players had to pay ₹2,200 to enter the tourney that assured a pretty impressive ₹10 Lakhs to the winner. In the end, banking this seven-figure score was an anonymous player ‘Expert,’ who outlasted a reg-infested field of 1,812 entries to become the latest Millionaire champion! His heads-up opponent was none other than last Sunday`s Millionaire United champion who we have recently discovered is New Delhi-based Arjun ‘lol this guy’ Pasricha.
Presently in Goa, Pasricha has been around the block for a very long time with a long litany of significant scores – both live and online. Pasricha had notably finished runner-up in the IOPC Super High Roller in February for ₹23.9 Lakhs. His runner-up finish in the Millionaire Lite yesterday fetched him ₹5.30 Lakhs in prize money.
Others who came close to the title include former Millionaire champion Saurabh ‘darksider’ Rohila (3rd for ₹2.96 Lakhs, 14th for ₹19,976), reigning India Poker Champion Rubin ‘kornkid’ Labroo (4th for ₹1.96 Lakhs), Sahil ‘ImHighIshove’ Mahboobani (6th for ₹87,168), Zarvan ‘BolAuntyAuKya’ Tumboli (8th for ₹50,848, 12th for ₹19,976), Mohit ‘TurnYourAce’ Kankaria (9th for ₹45,400) and PokerGuru Ambassador Parikshit ‘zapdos1311’ Dhall (10th for ₹30,872).
Interestingly, both Pasricha (4th for ₹2.71 Lakhs) and Tumboli (7th for ₹1.24 Lakhs) final tabled the Sunday SuperStack ₹35 Lakhs GTD as well. The ₹5,500 buy-in tourney became the stage for PokerGuru Ambassador Ratul ‘Atriohm’ Steves` blistering Sunday run as he outmaneuvered the 809-entry field to win the top prize of ₹7.76 Lakhs – his third-best online score to date. Raghav ‘thatssosick’ Bansal finished runner-up for ₹4.87 Lakhs.
Steves seems to have found the winning formula as he enjoyed a blockbuster weekend. He had finished third in the INSCOOP Main Event Warm Up on Saturday for ₹1.79 Lakhs. Complementing his Sunday SuperStack victory was his fourth-place finish in the INSCOOP The Big Crunch for ₹1.02 Lakhs.
‘Hiteshh’ was the other prominent Sunday winner on Spartan Poker as he outlasted a 548-strong field in the UVS Big Daddy to win ₹2.13 Lakhs.
PokerBaazi`s Sunday mainstay, BSS SuperStack collected a guarantee-busting ₹26.45 Lakhs prize pool on the back of 529 entries. The ₹5,500 buy-in tourney paid out the top 63 finishers. Running past a stacked final table was Sandy ‘Ziigmund’ Lamba, who defeated the formidable Anant ‘Pro_Pro’ Purohit heads-up to win ₹5.14 Lakhs. Purohit padded his bankroll for ₹3.6 Lakhs, with Shardul ‘duuurrrr’ Parthasarathi (3rd for ₹2.32 Lakhs), PokerGuru Ambassadors Ankit ‘d00mtr00p3r’ Wadhawan (4th for ₹1.71 Lakhs), Mithun ‘thepokeraja’ Mahesh (5th for ₹1.29 Lakhs), Sandeep ‘PoKcey’ Singh (5th for ₹1.03 Lakhs), and PokerGuru Ambassador Jayjit ‘England’ Ray (9th for ₹51,580) reeling in FT finishes.
PokerBaazi’s latest offerings are the month-long Free Entry Tournaments. Topping the Sunday special 10 Lac WEEKLY Depositors Freeroll was Deepak Choudhary for ₹1.50 Lakhs.
Others seen banking six-figure title wins on the site included Md ‘007Bahubali’ Zeeshan (The Monster ₹5 Lakhs GTD for ₹1.29 Lakhs), and ‘hiker53’ (Grinders Main Event ₹6 Lakhs GTD for ₹1.26 Lakhs).
There was explosive action on display at Adda52 on Sunday with Day 2 of the ₹5,500 buy-in Full House ₹1 Crore GTD being the showstopper tourney of the day. The Sunday grind began with 193 unique runners from a starting field of 1,778 entries that were tallied over five starting flights in the preceding week. This resulted in a sizable overlay worth ₹11.10 Lakhs, and the top 192 places walked away with a payday.
Former IOPC champion Millionaire champion Srihari ‘zombieballs’ Bang delivering one of his finest performances beat out a field infested with regs including his final bete noire ‘donk2degen’ (runner-up for ₹13.37 Lakhs) to claim the staggering ₹25 Lakhs that was laid aside for the winner.
Kushal ‘Kushujain’ Jain (3rd for ₹7.50 Lakhs), Vaibhav ‘Alienrobot’ Sharma (4th for ₹5.75 Lakhs), Deepak ‘orionn7’Raina (5th for ₹4.01 Lakhs) and Kunal ‘Kvohra’ Vohra (8th for ₹1.50 Lakhs) were the other prominent FT finishers. PokerGuru Ambassador Ankit ‘d00mtr00p3r’ Wadhawan was another pro who ran deep, finishing 10th for ₹80,000.
Over at Adda52 Millions ₹20 Lakhs GTD, a packed field of 260 entries generated a profitable ₹26 Lakhs prize pool. The heads-up play took place between Sahil ‘bluffme19’ Chuttani and PokerGuru Ambassador Naresh ‘emperor457’ Veeravalli, and it was the former who came out on top to win ₹6.76 Lakhs. Veeravalli collected ₹4.03 Lakhs for his runner-up finish.
A standout performer here was Young Gun Gaurav ‘gauravarod’ Sood. Already on the top of the 2020 Leaderboard, Sood extended his lead even further by placing third in the Adda52 Millions for ₹3.02 Lakhs.
‘Reg_Slayer’, ‘kuber1982,’ and myeshu’ took down the other major titles on Adda52 yesterday. The former bested an 85-entry field to win the PLO Bash for ₹1.45 Lakhs. ‘kuber1982’ beat 185 others to win the Super Knockout for ₹1.40 Lakhs, while ’Myeshu’ dominated a field of 666 entries that included their heads-up opponent Anirban ‘ajgar5’ D Das (2nd for ₹1.97 Lakhs) to win the Big Slick for ₹2.70 Lakhs.
In addition to raking in the runner-up finish, Das, who is currently sitting in third place on the May TLB Leaderboard, also picked up a fourth-place finish in the INSCOOP Sunday Highroller for ₹2.01 Lakhs.
The site`s INSCOOP series is on the home stretch now, with only two days remaining before things come to a wrap. As expected, the last Sunday of the series was especially spectacular. Commanding the most attention for the INSCOOP The Mammoth Main Event ₹1 Crore GTD that played out the first of its three starting flights yesterday. The ₹11,000 buy-in event brought in 874 entries, and only 230 could find a stack for Day 2. Towering over the group with a stack of 206,132 is ‘Mish2020’, with ‘aakhrijanam’ (201,523) and ‘MasterBet10’ (188,311) in hot pursuit. Kaleem ‘NuttyManiac’ Pasha (187,482), Rohit ‘kudos0202’ Behal (185,737), and Haider ‘clickasaur007’ Madraswala (174,942) are some others advancing with massive stacks.
The other star attraction was the INSCOOP Sunday Highroller ₹25 Lakhs GTD. Topping a field replete with circuit regs was the former Millionaire champion Chirag ‘WhyworrY_56’ Sodha. He sailed past a field of 196 entries last night to add another ₹4.96 Lakhs to his ₹1.30 Crores in winnings this year. He is already sitting on ₹60 Lakhs in profits in 2020.
The Sunday Highroller suffered a ₹50,000 overlay. With Kunal ‘mrsweets82’ Chandra falling in second place for a ₹3.68 Lakhs paycheque and Das finishing fourth, rounding out the star-studded final table were Aditya ‘serendipity789’ Sushant (5th for ₹1.49 Lakhs), Armaan ‘armaan007111’ Kochhar (7th for ₹82,054) and PokerGuru Ambassador Rohit ‘PillowFight22’ Mishra (9th for ₹45,015).
Sunday turned out to be another smashing one for PokerGuru Ambassadors with the pros booking a 1-2 finish in the INSCOOP The Big Crunch ₹12 Lakhs GTD. A starting field of 381 entries played down to an FT finale featuring two PokerGuru Ambassadors Devvrat ‘bhasm@sur1’ Arya and Ratul ‘MuscariAs’ Steves. While Steves supplemented his Sunday Superstack win with a fourth-place finish worth ₹1.02 Lakhs, Arya fell in the final hurdle against Myron ‘khAAbib’ Pereira who claimed the top honor for ₹1.74 Lakhs.
