Jitendra Gadhwal Clinches India’s Second-Biggest Online Score, Wins ₹5 Crores GTD #BB8 ENDBOSS on PokerBaazi For ₹1 Crore!

The Indian poker community witnessed one of its landmark Sundays yesterday – both live and online. The first-ever IPC Megastacks witnessed electrifying action in Jhapa with Day 2 of the ₹60K Main Event and the 15K Mystery Bounty running in tandem. However, it was PokerBaazi’s ₹5 Crores GTD #BB8 ENDBOSS that set the virtual felts on fire last night.

Like the last two ENDBOSS editions, a relatively lesser-known player, 26-year-old Jitendra Gadhwal from New Delhi, championed the third edition of India’s biggest online poker tournament for a life-changing ₹1 Crore payday! A poker enthusiast who works in the IT sector and plays poker when he can fit in the time, Gadhwal triumphed over a competitive 4,948-entry field – emerging as the second-biggest winner in an online poker tournament in the country. The record for the biggest single score still belongs to Abhishek Maheshwari, the first ENDBOSS champion who banked ₹1,00,15,911.

However, Gadhwal also cashed Adda52’s BTH Ice Cube, rounding up a collective ₹1,00,16,168 in Sunday winnings, edging past Maheshwari as the biggest single-day winner in the country to date. The ENDBOSS victory has boosted Gadhwal’s online scorecard to ₹1.60 Crores, and needless to say, the singular score has pushed him past the ₹1 Crore mark in annual winnings.

Eshan Kapoor (2nd for ₹60.20 Lakhs), poker streamer Bhushan Sohani (3rd for ₹31.40 Lakhs), and Gautam Kaul (4th for 21.50 Lakhs) were others who added breakout scores in ENDBOSS.

The ENDBOSS fifth-place finisher, PokerGuru Ambassador Nadeem Basha, may have lost his chances to become the “ENDBOSS,” still, he placed four better in Spartan Poker’s Money Heist, winning the title for ₹76,198 (four-way deal). He lapped up ₹18.60 Lakhs in Sunday winnings.

Young Gun Ujjwal Narwal clinched his fourth title in under a week, shipping Adda52’s BTH Mojito Finale for ₹8.86 Lakhs. He also min-cashed ENDBOSS, making away with ₹9.11 Lakhs in Sunday winnings.

The #4 ranked player of the year and last week’s leaderboard topper, Mohammad Azhar, championed Adda52`s BTH Monster for ₹7.98 Lakhs. He cashed another three events, collectively adding ₹8.77 Lakhs!

Rising Star Ritwik Khanna stormed his way into victory in PokerBaazi’s BSS SuperStack, winning the event for the second time for 7.19 Lakhs. He cumulatively added 8.32 Lakhs last night, climbing to #5 in the annual rankings.

Another player scoring multiple titles in under a week was last Wednesday’s Maverick winner Kanav Parwal, who took down BTH Sunday Madness for ₹2.10 Lakhs. He chopped the title three-way with Samay Singh Modi (2nd for ₹2.02 Lakhs) and Siddhanth Kapoor (3rd for ₹2.01 Lakhs). Parwal also placed third in PokerBaazi’s BSS SuperStack, lapping up ₹5.90 Lakhs in Sunday winnings.

The former The Millionaire champion Rishab Malik took down Spartan Poker’s Sunday Superstack for 5.24 Lakhs following a three-way deal with Punya Behera (2nd for 5.04 Lakhs) and Rubin Labroo (3rd for 4.89 Lakhs). He made away with 5.79 Lakhs altogether.

PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh won his second PokerStars India’s Sunday Highroller for ₹2.44 Lakhs, picking his 10th High Roller title on the site last night.

PokerGuru Ambassador Tarush Gupta, the #2 ranked player of the year, Young Gun Arsh Grover, Deepak Singh, Mohak Kapoor, Akhilesh Gautam, Sankalp Marwah, and Karan Thakker won the other Sunday marquees.
