Doddapaneni, Patni, Mehta, Mittal, Agarwal & Bang Raked in the Big Sunday Scores

It was an overlay avalanche yesterday! Spartan Poker’s Millionaire, Adda52’s Full House, PokerBaazi’s BSS SuperStack and PokerStars India’s Sunday Special, all had to fill in sizable overlays, ultimately offering a lot of value to players. Without wasting too much time, let’s get right down to business!

 

Spartan Poker

Spartan Poker’s most-beloved tournament, The Millionaire 1 Crore GTD, returned to the virtual felts last night. Clocking in 895 entries, the event had a massive deficit of 10.50 Lakhs. The battle to become the latest Millionaire was a hard-fought one that witnessed the likes of Young Gun Anmol ‘Anzzzzz’ Mehta (3rd for 8.42 Lakhs), Indias poker pioneer Aditya ‘Yennefer’ Agarwal (4th for 6.45 Lakhs), Dhaval ‘MandirYahinBanayenge’ Mudgal (5th for 5.11 Lakhs), Guneet ‘guntz’ Kwatra (6th for 3.98 Lakhs), Manish ‘potlords’ Gandhi (7th for 2.90 Lakhs) and Surbhit ‘grovahova’ Grover (8th for 1.98 Lakhs), competing for the top honors. In the end, it came down to a duel between site regular ‘McFly’ and MTT crusher Sriharsha ‘Potato Player’ Doddapaneni. The duo decided to strike a deal with the former shipping the title for 15.88 Lakhs, and Doddapaneni taking home 14.97 Lakhs for his runner-up finish. In fact, Doddapaneni also final tabled PokerStars Indias Sunday Special, finishing fifth for 74,218.

The Sunday flagship, 35 Lakhs GTD Sunday SuperStack had an eventful run on Spartan Poker. With 726 entries on the board, the tourney managed to generate a commendable 36.30 Lakhs prize pool. ‘Rsourabh491’ won the event for 7 Lakhs, even as PokerGuru Ambassador Vivek ‘KasolHieghts’ Singh finished runner-up for 4.41 Lakhs.

 

Adda52

Running alongside Spartan Poker’s The Millionaire was Adda52’s 1 Crore GTD AOPS Full House. The tournament locked in 1,972 entrants across six starting flights, falling 1.40 Lakhs short of the eight-figure guarantee. Only 214 runners made it through to Day 2, and 211 players were able to finish ITM. Rohit ‘rohitvaswani’ Vaswani turned out to be the biggest winner on Sunday after besting former Adda52 Team pro Kunal ‘kunalpatni’ Patni heads-up in the AOPS Full House Finale for a colossal top prize of 21 Lakhs. Patni netted his second-best online score to date of 12.60 Lakhs, taking his overall recorded winnings tally over the 2 Crores-mark. Bhavye ‘noobpro’ Mittal rounded out the top three finishes by placing third for 8 Lakhs.

Even though the AOPS Full House has a dry run, the 25 Lakhs GTD AOPS Millions fared much better. The event posted a guarantee-busting 27.70 Lakhs prize pool on the back of 277 entries. One of the most promising names of the domestic circuit, Srihari ‘zombieballs’ Bang, topped the field and outlasted PokerGuru Ambassador Rohit ‘rohit22rm’ Mishra heads-up to capture the title. The duo struck a heads-up deal that saw Bang collecting 5.99 Lakhs, while Mishra received an equally impressive 5.32 Lakhs for his runner-up finish. Bang is presently ranked #3 on the annual leaderboard with almost 1.88 Crores in winnings.

Nishaanth ‘superdeluxe’ Shanmughasundaram has been in superb form since last week. After taking down PokerBaazi’s BSS SuperStack last Sunday for 5.08 Lakhs, he was back in the thick of the action and championed the 20 Lakhs GTD AOPS Big Slick for 4.90 Lakhs. Ayush ‘lazyman’ Garg, who was chasing his third AOPS title, placed second for 2.68 Lakhs. The event logged in 858 runners, registering an overlay of 69,500.

 

PokerBaazi

PokerBaazi’s signature Sunday event, the 25 Lakhs GTD BSS SuperStack, attracted 494 participants, but it wasn’t enough to meet the advertised guarantee, ultimately resulting in an overlay of 30,000. Mystery user ‘pokerghajini’ championed the event for 4.86 Lakhs, after defeating Subhrit ‘grovahova’ Grover (runner-up for 3.41 Lakhs) heads-up.

The other marquee event on PokerBaazi was the 10 Lakhs GTD BSS MegaStack. With a turnout of 326 entries, the event registered a shortfall of 1.85 Lakhs on its listed guarantee. Online regular Pranav ‘pranavpoker’ Khandalkar locked horns with Sahil ‘ImHighIshove’ Mahboobani in the final showdown. The former came out on top and pocketed 2.21 Lakhs, while Mahboobani bagged 1.55 Lakhs in second-place prize money.

 

PokerStars India

The two 20 Lakhs GTD tourneys on PokerStars India, the Sunday Special Progressive KO, and the Sunday Highroller, have been filling in overlays consistently these past few weeks. This Sunday was no different. The Sunday Special gathered 381 entries, and the site had to fill in an overlay of 95,000. Well-known pro Chirag ‘WhyworrY_56’ Sodha scrambled past the field and claimed the title and top prize of 4.03 Lakhs. He cut a heads-up deal with Rocky ‘ravenvlaw410’ Gehlot, who finished runner-up for 2 Lakhs.

The Sunday Highroller had an abysmal showing and ended up registering a shortfall of 4.20 Lakhs through 158 entries. Avijit ‘SwangoRay’ Jaiswal got the best deal on the value on offer and banked 3.54 Lakhs in first-place prize money. ‘loctobonbon’ received the same amount of 3.54 Lakhs for coming in second, after the duo agreed to a heads-up deal.

Sodha, Desai, Mehrotra & Mahajan Topped the Sunday Marquees

While yesterday may have paled in comparison to April 19 that had crowned India’s biggest-ever online winner in Abhishek Maheshwari, PokerBaazi’s EndBoss champion, it was, nevertheless, still an action-packed affair.

There was explosive action underway at Adda52 that hosted the Sunday mega tourney – Full House 1 Crore GTD – for the very first time. The event logged in 2,526 entries (Day 1A 516, Day 1B – 315, Day 1C – 430, Day 1D – 426 and Day 1E – 839) on its inaugural run through five starting flights, generating a massive 1.26 crores prize pool, and the top 230 places were paid. A total of 231 runners had progressed to Day 2 that played out yesterday, and following the elimination of ‘avenuea’, the remaining 230 players were ITM. Piercing his way through the reg-infested field was MTT pro Chirag ‘cs56’ Sodha, who defeated Vinay ‘vinay0902’ Rajpal (runner-up for 12.49 Lakhs) heads-up to clinch the title and a new personal-best 25 Lakhs in prize money. Sodha, who is a former Spartan Poker Millionaire champion, now has over 2.50 Crores in recorded online winnings.

Daily Majors: Bansal, Iyer, Arjun Kochhar & Mittal Dominate the Friday Flagships

The weekend rush has started, and there were fireworks on the digital felts last night as the flagships toppled their massive guarantees! Some of the best regs in the business converged to play Spartan Poker’s The Elite ₹50 Lakhs GTD that attracted 584 entries, 263 of them unique players, along with 136 re-entries and 185 rebuys. Now, if that wasn’t enough to blow the advertised guarantee to smithereens! With a final prize pool collection of ₹58.40 Lakhs, it was the prominent poker pro Raghav ‘thatssosick’ Bansal who came out on top to win the seven-figure score of ₹11.32 Lakhs. Bansal, who has a well-rounded poker resume replete with live and online scores, defeated masterbluff (runner-up for ₹7.08 Lakhs) heads-up to emerge as the biggest winner last night.

The other Spartan flagship, TGIF ₹12 Lakhs GTD, was also able to break the bank by collecting a guarantee-crushing ₹15.60 Lakhs prize pool. The tourney logged in 1,040 hopefuls (486 unique, 154 re-entries and 400 rebuys) and running past all of them was Arjun Singh ‘Don Julio’ Kochhar who struck a four-way deal with ‘Vishwa555’ (runner-up for ₹2.14 Lakhs), Dragon Kewe’ (3rd for ₹1.80 Lakhs) and Vimaljeet ‘Spartan92’ Singh (4th for ₹1 Lakhs) before taking down the tourney for ₹2.15 Lakhs in prize money.

In the Afternoon Showdown ₹6.5 Lakhs GTD, Faucet Failure struck a heads-up deal with saltwater (runner-up for ₹1.12 Lakhs) to win the ₹1.17 Lakhs first-place prize money.

The other major tourney at Spartan Poker, SSS#64 5FOR5 (₹50K to Top 5), paid out ₹50,000 each to the top five places, namely, Manish ‘potlords’ Gandhi, ‘KidChaos24’, ‘Uncle$crooge’, ‘PokerStar090’ and Siddharth ‘siddchat’ Chaturvedi. Notably, Gandhi final tabled the Ultimate PLO ₹2.75 Lakhs GTD as well, finishing seventh for ₹14,820.

Headlining PokerBaazi`s Friday lineup was the Fri-Yay ₹6 Lakhs GTD. With 235 entries (147 unique and 88 re-entries), the tournament obliterated its guarantee collecting a prize pool worth ₹7.05 Lakhs. The final table was a stacked affair with some of the most talented pros jostling for the top spot. Edging past online regs like Sahil ‘ImHighIshove’ Mahboobani (3rd for ₹74,870), Goonjan ‘gmtesting’ Mall (4th for ₹55,410) and Prateek ‘khotasikka’ Singh (5th for ₹41,600), it was another familiar name Bhavye ‘noobnoob’ Mittal who took down the title to win ₹1.66 Lakhs.

Ahuja’s runner-up finish fetched him ₹1.16 Lakhs, yet another add-on to his blistering run this week. The PokerGuru Ambassador has final-tabled almost 10 tourneys this week. Some of his prominent wins include Adda52`s Hexagram for ₹84,750 and the 5For5 on Spartan Poker for ₹50,000. He has also made deep runs in the other flagships this week like the Godfather (5th for ₹1.76 Lakhs), Pride Mini (5th for ₹35,124), and the Hitman (3rd for ₹1.34 Lakhs), to name just a few.

Adda52’s Friday mainstay, The Ballers ₹17 Lakhs GTD, enjoyed yet another smashing run last night. With 403 entries (214 unique and 189 re-entries), the tourney generated a profitable prize pool of ₹27.60 Lakhs. The heads-up play took place between two top pros. In one corner was the former APT Vietnam Main Event champion and WSOP bracelet winner Abhinav checkshoveIyer while, on the other was PokerGuru Ambassador Vivek ‘vivek94540’ Singh. Iyer was hungry for the win after missing out in The Elite earlier in the night – he finished ninth for ₹1.11 Lakhs. The duo quickly shook hands on a heads-up deal that got Iyer the title along with the top prize of ₹5.88 Lakhs. Singh, in the meantime, ended his Friday night session with a ₹5.09 Lakhs score.

Like always, PokerGuru Ambassadors had a field day in the flagship tourneys. In addition to the big scores by Vivek Singh and Ashish Ahuja, others like Laksh Pal ‘boomtilt23’ Singh (3rd for ₹2.89 Lakhs), Jayjit ‘pokerminator’ Ray (5th for ₹1.43 Lakhs) and Naresh ’emperor457′ Veeravalli (8th for ₹62,112), also posted FT finishes.

Like the Thursday Highroller, the Uppercut also awarded free tickets worth ₹11,000 for THE MAMMOTH ₹1 Crore GTD to its top 10 finishers. In the end, it was ‘tks5432’ who walked away with the ₹2.91 Lakhs up top after defeating Chandan RunBarryRunArora heads-up. Arora had to concede to a second-place finish, banking ₹1.29 Lakhs in the process.
