As the COVID-19 situation in the country keeps getting grimmer by the day and with several states going under lockdown, staying at home has become the best thing to do. It is starting to feel like last year when the nationwide lockdown led to a meteoric spike in online poker traffic. Moreover, with the tropical cyclone Tauktae hitting the southwest portion of the country and still moving forward and the second wave of the pandemic wreaking havoc, poker players seem to be making the best of the situation by putting in more time on the virtual felts.

Given the above briefing, it is pretty evident that this Sunday was an action-packed one. Spartan Poker’s The Millionaire was the biggest guaranteed tournament on offer, and for a second-consecutive week, a PokerGuru Ambassador, this time Vivek Singh, took down the flagship tourney for a career-best ₹19.05 Lakhs (1st for ₹18.68 Lakhs and 36th for ₹36,337).

Vivek Singh clinched his first-ever The Millionaire title after beating out Game Changer 3.0 champion, Siddhanth Kripalani, heads-up. The two-time Destiny winner took home ₹10.45 Lakhs (2nd for ₹10.21 Lakhs, 138th for ₹14,490 and 224th for ₹9,622) in cumulative winnings.

Young Gun Sahil Chutani seems to have become a staple in our ‘Sunday Online Railbird Reports.’ The former APT Mini Main Event runner-up finisher took down the Sunday Superstack last night for ₹7.92 Lakhs, following a heads-up chop with fellow Young Gun Devang Yadav (runner-up for ₹7.84 Lakhs).

The two-time Millionaire champion Manish Lakhotia was another player making headlines. The Siliguri-based pro has overtaken Young Gun Gaurav Sood on the annual leaderboard, claiming the #2 rank after winning the Adda52 Millions title for the third time for ₹7.29 Lakhs.

Online phenom Sagar Choudhury won PokerBaazi’s BSS#4 SuperStack for ₹4.32 Lakhs, while BSS Leaderboard topper Anirban D Das finished runner-up for ₹3.02 Lakhs.

Gaurav Sood (Won PokerStars India’s Sunday Highroller PKO for ₹3.73 Lakhs), Divik Arora (Won PokerDangal’s DVS Main Event for ₹3.25 Lakhs), and Rubin Labroo (Won PokerStars India’s Sunday Special PKO for ₹3.13 Lakhs) were the other big Sunday winners.

Here are the Sunday highlights!
