A phenomenal Sunday was glittered with some of the Indian poker industry’s biggest names championing the flagship tournaments! From Sriharsha Doddapaneni claiming his career-first Millionaire title in Spartan Poker’s IOPC Millionaire Legends to Siddarth Singhvi persisting with his sublime form and shipping Adda52’s APF Full House Finale, it was a blockbuster night! Let’s quickly get to the recap.

 

Spartan Poker

The biggest-ever India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) series has now completed 11 days, and the magnum opus on offer last night was the ₹1.5 Crores GTD IOPC Millionaire Legends. The two-day event locked in 818 entries through three starting flights. As the trend has been throughout the series, the Millionaire Legends, too, successfully crushed its guarantee, generating a colossal ₹2.04 Crores in the prize pool. Only 128 runners advanced to Day 2.

One of the most prolific players of the Indian poker circuit, Sriharsha ‘Potato Player’ Doddapaneni, had come close to clinching his career-first Millionaire just a few weeks ago in The Millionaire ₹1 Crore GTD. Following a heads-up deal, Doddapaneni lost the title to site regular ‘McFly’ and had to settle for a second-place finish worth ₹14.97 Lakhs. However, last night the stars finally aligned, and the 2019 WPT India ₹25K Big Bounty winner was able to claim the Millionaire Legends title for a jaw-dropping ₹38.75 Lakhs. This also happens to be Doddapaneni’s personal-best online score thus far.

Incidentally, Doddapaneni’s nemesis and former Millionaire champion ‘McFly’ also final tabled this event yesterday, but could only manage a seventh-place finish for ₹7.24 Lakhs. Sagar ‘Strangeplay’ Choudhury (9th for ₹2.84 Lakhs) was the only other notable player who made it to the final table.

Another former Millionaire, in fact, the first-ever Millionaire United winner and the first known female Millionaire champion Mahima Walia ‘mambojojo’ Das was also a part of yesterday’s elite list of winners. She triumphed over 1,214 entries that were logged in the ₹60 Lakhs GTD IOPC Sunday Superstack and banked a winner’s paycheque of ₹11.43 Lakhs, after knocking ‘KUBERA33’ out in second place. The latter pocketed ₹6.95 Lakhs for their efforts. Walia also final tabled the IOPC#74 ₹6.5 Lakhs GTD, finishing seventh for ₹22,984.

The ₹15 Lakhs GTD IOPC Big Daddy was one of the first marquee events of the ongoing IOPC that witnessed an overlay. After drawing in 731 entries, the event had a deficit of ₹38,000. ‘Hiteshh’ came out on top to win ₹2.52 Lakhs, after striking a heads-up deal with ‘cardshark91’ (runner-up for ₹2.19 Lakhs).

Anish ‘anishsuri’ Suri (IOPC#74 ₹6.5 Lakhs GTD for ₹1.38 Lakhs), ‘Unpredictable1’ (IOPC#70 ₹6 Lakhs GTD for ₹1.48 Lakhs) and Harpreet ‘preet123’ Saluja (IOPC#71 Monster Stack ₹5 Lakhs GTD for ₹82,750), won the other IOPC titles on Spartan Poker yesterday.
