In the PokerGuru feature ‘This Week in Poker,’ we bring you the weekly roundup of the most significant online scores by Indian MTT players along with the top stories from both the live and online poker circuit.

Here are this week’s top stories!

The first week of June was as action-packed as its predecessor, with a plethora of exciting online tournaments, lucrative promotions, and exciting news updates!

There has never been a better time to play online poker, and once again this week, the virtual felts were packed to the brim. Spartan Poker has rolled out the red carpet for poker players, offering a staggering ₹23 Crores in guaranteed tournament prizes this month. The first of its offerings, the inaugural Grand Poker Series (GPS) wound up on June 7, with the series-headliner, the ₹1 Crore GTD GPS Millionaire playing down to a winner on Sunday. It was the anonymous ‘lazylad’ who defeated the former Millionaire champion Arjun’ lol this guy’ Pasricha (runner-up for ₹11.78 Lakhs) heads-up to join the elite ‘Millionaire’s Club’ for a payday worth ₹19.08 Lakhs.

The trailblazer of the week was Sanat’ mehro2511’ Mehrotra. The 28-year-old Gurgaon-based player went on a rampage on Sunday, final-tabling two flagship events. Mehrotra’s class act came in Adda52’s ₹1 Crore GTD Full House, where he topped a field of 1,745 contenders to win his biggest online score to date – a payout of ₹25 Lakhs. Runner-up’ sanjays114’ also banked a seven-figure prize worth ₹13.30 Lakhs. He added another ₹6.01 Lakhs to his tally last night by taking down the AOPS Cowboys. With over ₹32 Lakhs in winnings this week, Mehrotra’s tally of online scores has crossed the ₹2 Crore-barrier, making him our “PokerGuru Star of the Week!”

Another pro who shone at the felts was Manish Gandhi. His claim to fame was taking down the ₹40 Lakhs GTD GPS The Elite on Friday for ₹8.92 Lakhs. Gandhi followed through by claiming the ₹20 Lakhs GTD GPS PLO HR title the very next day for ₹4.89 Lakhs. Over these two wins alone, Gandhi added a sizeable ₹13.81 Lakhs to his bankroll.

As the GPS got over, the Ultimate Value Series (UVS) roared to life on Spartan Poker. The series runs till June 14 and has 45 events with a combined prize pool guarantee of over ₹1 Crore. Turning up the heat will be UVS edition of The Millionaire Lite that runs with a ₹35 Lakhs GTD this Sunday. That, alongside the WKND Prime, and DLY Prime feature tournaments as well as the upcoming OFC Championship, and Freezeout Master Series, make for a very heady cocktail for tournament players!

A fall in revenue owing to the COVID-19 has sent the Turf clubs in a hurry to explore options for increasing interest in horse racing. At the behest of racing club managers, the Turf Authority of India (TAI) is reportedly working on an integrated app that can facilitate online betting on all the different horseracing events across India.

Even though most of the casinos in the U.S., including those in Nevada, have now opened, that’s not the case for Goa’s casino industry. Although the coastal state has reported very few COVID-19 positive cases, the government is certainly taking no chance. In a recent interview with the media, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant underlined that there was no likelihood of casinos being reopened anytime soon.

In the wake of the continued closure, the casino sector has suffered a significant blow. Casino Pride Director Shrinivas Naik has reached out to the state government requesting a three-year income tax holiday for the casino industry, alongside other relaxations and financial assistance.

There was some good news coming in for the offshore casinos this week. Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB) appointed firm, TUV-SUD India, in its water audit, confirmed that the offshore casinos are not polluting the Mandovi river.

One of the year’s biggest announcements also came through this week, with the World Series of Poker (WSOP) announcing a full-fledged lineup of 85 bracelet events that will be hosted online starting July 1. While the brand has not discounted the possibility of a live stop in 2020 yet, the 2020 WSOP Online Series will offer enough chances for winning a coveted bracelet! Thirty-one of these bracelet events will be hosted only for players inside Nevada and New Jersey on WSOP.com, with the remaining 54 to be run on GGPoker Network July 19 onwards. The series wraps up on September 6, and the good news is, players in India can play these bracelet events on GGPoker or Natural8!

This is a continuation of WSOP’s partnership with the GGPoker Network that had earlier hosted the record-smashing WSOP Super Circuit Series in May. The series had crushed all expected numbers and eventually awarded more than $130 Million in prize money across the series. With Poker Central bringing us the tournament thrills through live-streams, highlight videos, etc., the WSOP excitement on the virtual felts promises to be bigger than ever!

The Asia-facing Natural8 that runs on the GGPoker Network had more thrilling news up its sleeve and recently announced the return of the immensely successful Asian Poker Tour (APT) Online Series on its platform. Running from June 14 to 28, the second edition promises a colossal $10 Million in guaranteed prizes!

For players in Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey, WSOP is currently hosting the WSOP.com Online Finale Circuit series and has already handed out six of the 12 Circuit gold rings on the schedule.
