The victory has given Gehani’s lifetime winnings a big boost, and he now boasts ₹83.60 Lakhs in online winnings. Gehani is looking sharp as he also bagged one of the top stacks on Day 1A of the ₹3.5 Crore GTD IOPC – The Crown.

The Delhi-based Arsh Grover eliminated bracelet winner Abhinav ‘hightr0ller’ Iyer, Rajeev ‘AthenaVolt’ Kumar, and Sumit ‘AAddicted’ Sapra before meeting Gehani heads-up for the title. Grover was at a slight chip disadvantage at the start of the heads-up, and they traded chips for about 10 minutes before shaking hands on a deal that awarded him a runner-up payday worth ₹24.79 Lakhs. 25-year-old Grover, who had closed out 2020 as the #2 ranked player on the annual charts, has been on a relative backburner this year, but the IOPC Legends runner-up score has laddered him up to #6 annual leaderboard standings. He hit two other milestones with this finish – crossing ₹2 Crores in annual winnings, at the same time, entering the ₹1 Crore club in yearly profits.

Sumit ‘AAddicted’ Sapra (3rd for ₹14.71 Lakhs), Rajeev ‘AthenaVolt’ Kumar (4th for ₹11.10 Lakhs), Armaan ‘space ace’ Kochhar (5th for ₹8.80 Lakhs) and Abhinav ‘hightr0ller’ Iyer (6th for ₹6.65 Lakhs) also won final table payouts.

Rubin Labroo, Jaideep Sajwan, Sahil Chutani, Ritwik Khanna & Aditya Singh Crush the Sunday Flagships

Sunday brought an end to another firecracker week of tournament action, with the 11th edition of the IOPC continuing to rain down Gold Badges.

Even as Mirabai Chanu brought India its first medal at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, the virtual felts were stacked with some of the best poker players in the country vying for a share of the glory and massive cash prizes on offer.

Headlining the Sunday action was the fourth marquee event at the IOPC, the ₹1.75 Crore GTD IOPC#92 Legends. The ₹27,500-entry buy-in event played down to its six-player final table last night, with Amit Suresh Gehani grabbing the chip lead. The six-handed final table commences at 5 PM.

Jaideep Sajwan was another familiar name making the headlines. The poker vlogger shipped the Adda52 Millions for ₹6.86 Lakhs and got a walkover in the heads-up as his opponent ‘MallaNi’ got disconnected and did not return to close out the match. The anonymous user received ₹4 Lakhs for their runner-up finish.

Sahil Chutani shipped Adda52’s NPS Main Event for ₹5.52 Lakhs while Rising Star Ritwik Khanna won PokerBaazi’s BSS#4 SuperStack for ₹3.65 Lakhs.

Aditya Singh took down PokerStars India’s Sunday Special Progressive KO for ₹2.20 Lakhs.

Ravindra Arikeri, Debayan Das, Animesh Sehgal, Saransh Garg, Siddharth Pandey, Debneil Mukherjee, Karan Radia, Abhimanyu Mittal, and Pankaj Nanda won the other Sunday flagships!

Adda52

The ₹25 Lakhs GTD Adda52 Millions was the star attraction of the site’s Sunday roster. The event registered 242 entrants, falling eight entries short of its 250-player guarantee. For the most part, the event played out as it usually does, but it was during the heads-up between poker vlogger Jaideep ‘nawjas’ Sajwan and ‘MallaNi’ (2nd for ₹4 Lakhs) that things got interesting. The anonymous user was facing internet connectivity issues on the FT, and during the heads-up, they once again got disconnected. In the spirit of true sportsmanship, Sajwan chose to sit out and wait for his opponent to connect back instead of stealing the blinds.

While it wasn’t the most tried and tested road to victory, it’s a win nonetheless for Jaideep Sajwan as he took home ₹6.86 Lakhs in prize money. The win comes nearly six months after Sajwan’s runner-up finish in Adda52’s Mega Suits.

Speaking with us earlier today, Jaideep Sajwan shared his views on the incident. “My opponent had disconnected for a short time once we were 4-5 handed, and then once we got down to HU, he had a 4:1 chip lead. I brou
