This Week in Poker: January 5 – 11

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

We are nearing the midway mark for January, and so far, it’s been an action-packed month for online poker, thanks to the PokerBaazi Classics.

The year’s first mega-series had a plethora of big guaranteed tourneys, and unsurprisingly, this week’s “PokerGuru Star of the Week!” is the fifth Game Changer champion Sonu Shejpal! The relatively lesser-known players barged into the spotlight after overcoming a 3,870-strong entry field to capture a personal-best ₹25.45 Lakhs! He cut a four-way deal with Akshay Joshi (2nd for ₹20.34 Lakhs), Avish Sharma (3rd for ₹19.40 Lakhs), and Shivam Khandelwal (4th for ₹18.35 Lakhs), all of them featuring among the week`s chartbusters.

Young Gun Anuj Yadav, Siddharth Gangwar, and Vinayak Bajaj were the other top scorers of the week.

Even with the PokerBaazi Classics now in the rear-view mirror, players have much to look forward to throughout January, starting with PokerStars India’s Winter Series that went underway on January 11 and will run until January 16. On the heels of the Winter Series comes the 12th edition of Spartan Poker’s IOPC that will take the virtual felts by storm from January 20. In all, it’s going to be an exhilarating month for online poker!

Adding to the excitement is the brand-new MPL Poker Showdown – a ₹15 Lakhs guaranteed event with 30 celebrities going head-to-head for five rounds of poker starting today at 8 PM. A sixth-round open to MPL Poker will also take place. Don`t forget to tune in to watch the live-streamed action on FilterCopy (YouTube) and across our social media channels.

Moving over to the promotional announcements, IndiaPlays has two free-buy tournaments scheduled this month. For a minimum deposit of ₹500 using the deposit code DEP50K, players can win tickets to both the ₹50K GTD Free-buy tournaments scheduled on January 15 and 29.

In other news, Abhinav Iyer was named the 2021 GPI India Player of the Year for a second consecutive time. Ali Imsirovic won the overall 2021 POY title, while Nadya Magnus (female POY) and David Mzareulov (first-ever Mid-Stakes GPI POY) won the other POY titles.

After a year that saw the online gaming industry rejoicing and then despairing over the slew of online gaming bans, comes more disturbing news from Tamil Nadu. CM MK Stalin on January 7 said that the government would be altogether banning online gaming in the state soon.

In one of the first major collaborations of the year, well-known poker operator Vikram Kumar joined hands with high stakes cash game player & former Rockets Poker Room (Bengaluru) operator Santosh Suvarna to begin poker operations in the Cadillac Casino at DoubleTree by Hilton, Goa.

The only listed Indian company in the casino business, Delta Corp., is reportedly exploring an IPO to expand its online gaming business. The company posted impressive Q3 results, reporting a robust ₹70 Crores in profits on the back of strong growth in its core casino business.
