Daily Majors: Adarsh Jha, Pratibh Saluja, Gurpal Singh & Mangu Bansal Rocked the Monday Flagships

Mondays are expectedly slow, and with PokerBaazi’s 1000X Series closing out on Sunday, it was back to the regular tournaments across the top poker platforms.

The turnouts were surprisingly solid; barring a few events, most crushed their advertised guarantees. PokerStars India’s Winter Series 5.0 is past the midway mark, and the series took a day-long hiatus on Monday, giving the regs a break from long hours of online grind. Starting today is IndiaPlay`s rake-free ₹15 Lakhs GTD Resolution Series, offering unmatched value across 14 tournaments.

The excitement has started to build up for India’s biggest online poker festival, Spartan Poker’s ₹43+ Crores GTD India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) (January 19 – February 15). Satellites to the 14th IOPC are running at full throttle, and the brand has started handing out free IOPC tickets to the players through their daily featured tournaments.

As for the Monday winners, Adarsh Jha was the day`s most prolific scorer with three FT finishes and ₹2.57 Lakhs in total winnings. He most notably shipped PokerBaazi`s The Big Show for ₹1.75 Lakhs after striking a heads-up deal with Bashir Ahmed Bhat (2nd for ₹1.38 Lakhs).

Rising Star Pratibh Saluja was another standout winner and shipped Spartan Poker`s The Rainmaker (Multi Entry – IOPC Bubble) for ₹2.28 Lakhs, following a heads-up deal with last week’s 1000X#8 Monday Prime champion Snehil Aggarwal (2nd for ₹2.15 Lakhs).

Naren Vulta money-bubbled The Rainmaker, receiving a free ticket to the ₹40 Lakhs GTD IOPC #38 – Monday Prime.

MTT phenom Young Gun Karan Radia opened his title scorecard for the year by taking down Adda52`s Iron Man for ₹2 Lakhs.

Gurpal Singh netted approximately ₹1.68 Lakhs last night and won PokerBaazi’s (7-Max) ₹5 Lakhs GTD SPRINT for the second time for ₹1.01 Lakhs. Akshat Sharma collected ₹76,478 in second place.

Sunday’s Winter Series-24 Polar Express champion Sanchit Anand took down PokerBaazi’s (7-Max) Daily SPRINT for at least the third time for ₹68,266. He struck a heads-up deal with Surbhit Grover (2nd for ₹63,007).

Kashish Gupta nailed Spartan Poker’s Deepstack Turbo for ₹65,491 (₹93,204 overall) following a heads-up deal with site-reg Biplob ‘hellhell’ Rana (2nd for ₹58,374).

PokerStars India user ‘classic2908′ won the site’s Monday attraction, Eliminator [8-Max], for the second time, scoring a personal-best ₹1.02 Lakhs (₹54,322 bounties). Nitin Gupta collected ₹72,352 (₹24,591 bounties) in second place.

Utkarsh Srivastava, Dinesh Kukreja, Satyam Surendra, Dayanand Prass, Nishant Pandey, and Divyansh Chandra won the other Monday marquees.

With a day left for the year to culminate, things have been spicing up on the virtual felts despite no big-guaranteed MTT series playing out.

Daily Majors: Rishabh Gupta, Mohammad Azhar, Aditya Kesharwani & Abhimanyu Mittal Raked in the Top Wednesday Scores

Wednesday followed the same pattern as the past two days, with several flagship tournaments registering significant overlays. The day`s big story was Pocket52’s Pocket Poker Championship flagging off its sixth edition yesterday with six PPC tournaments donning the Day 1 schedule.

Rishabh Gupta has been an absolute beast in online MTTs these last four months and emerged as Wednesday`s top scorer after taking down Spartan Poker’s Wednesday High Roller for ₹5.28 Lakhs, also his second-best online score.

Sreekanth Narayan hasn`t been as active in the online MTTs as before, but he announced his comeback in style by taking down PokerBaazi’s The Pride for ₹2.04 Lakhs, ending an over a month-long dry spell. Sunday`s Patni Millionaire runner-up, Rony Chowdhury (2nd for ₹1.83 Lakhs) and Aditya Kesharwani (3rd for ₹1.77 Lakhs) benefitted from a three-way deal.

Aditya Kesharwani was another Wednesday trailblazer. The IIT Kharagpur alumnus kept his scorecard ticking by accumulating a nifty 3.49 Lakhs from four deep runs, including podium finishes in The Pride (3rd for ₹1.77 Lakhs) and (7-Max) SPRINT (2nd for ₹1.54 Lakhs).
