Daily Majors: Mohammad Azhar, Sahil Chutani, Kunal Patni, Vivek Singh & Vishnu Khandelwal Headline the Thursday Flagships

It was an action-packed Thursday, and the good news is that there’s much more to look forward to these next ten days, with Spartan Poker’s ₹12 Crore GTD FTS 3.0 taking flight at 4 PM. The 30-event series runs right until September 19, pushing the ₹1 Crore GTD The Millionaire into a two-week hiatus.

It was almost déjà vu as the NPS Main Event champion Mohammad Azhar once again topped Spartan Poker’s The Big Deal, winning the high roller title for a second consecutive week for ₹7.80 Lakhs. At the same time, last Thursday’s The Summit champion, Young Gun Sahil Chutani, placed runner-up for ₹5.27 Lakhs.

Vijendra Kumar Sharma won Adda52’s Godfather for the second time this year, netting a site-best ₹6.12 Lakhs. PokerGuru Ambassador Vivek Singh placed runner-up.

The former Destiny winner M Balakrishnan took down Spartan Poker’s Trending Thursday for ₹3.46 Lakhs after striking a heads-up deal with Vishnu Khandelwal.

The former The Millionaire & Hercules champion, Rishab Malik, added a second PokerStars India Highroller title to his tally and ₹2.52 Lakhs in prize money.

Here are the Thursday highlights!

 

Spartan Poker

It’s finally here! One of the most-awaited online MTT stops of the year, the Final Table Series kicks off its third edition at 4 PM today. Players have already braced themselves for ten days of non-stop poker action with 30 marques events and a jaw-dropping ₹12 Crores in cash prizes guaranteed. Because of the FTS, the site’s weekend flagship, The Millionaire, goes on a hiatus for two weeks.

Even with no The Millionaire running, there were two Thursday flagships for players to dive into. The biggest draw was the Big Deal that offered players a slice of high-roller action, guaranteeing ₹30 Lakhs at the entry price of ₹22,000. Yesterday, the event witnessed a turnout of 155 players – four entries more than last week. And guess what? Last week’s champion Mohammad ‘Cupid stunt’ Azhar found his way to the top once again, winning the title for a second consecutive week for ₹7.80 Lakhs. Last Thursday’s The Summit champion, Young Gun Sahil ‘$lim$hady19’ Chutani, finished runner-up for ₹5.27 Lakhs.

Adda52

Adda52’s Sunday run of tournaments was headlined by the “Mystique” and a controversy! Instead of putting up a definite prize pool guarantee, Adda52 offered an ”estimated guarantee” of ₹30 Lakhs in the event. The ambiguity surrounding the guarantee roused anger among the player community as many players felt the same was misleading. Many players took to social media groups like TPG to voice these concerns. As it would go, only 281 players signed up for the Mystique, leading to a prize pool collection of ₹11.24 Lakhs. This is a significant shortfall from the ambitious ₹30 Lakhs “estimation” that the Sunday flagship started with.

Controversy apart, the user ‘royalty’ eventually claimed the bragging rights for ₹2.88 Lakhs, with ‘arushiagarwal’ (2nd for ₹1.71 Lakhs) and Sajjan ‘haitohhai’ Barnwal (3rd for ₹1.29 Lakhs) rounding out the podium finishers.

The champion ‘GajaniG’ now has site-cashes worth ₹8.02 Lakhs, which include ₹6.98 Lakhs in net profits.

Vinay B, in the meantime, went on to win PokerBaazi’s ₹1.50 Lakhs GTD Turbo for ₹32,594. He raked in ₹4.57 Lakhs over a total of five Sunday cashes, boosting his lifetime winnings to ₹3.63 Crores.

The ₹10 Lakhs GTD Sunday Showdown clocked in 478 participants, generating a ₹10.75 Lakhs prize pool. ‘goofy25’ came out trumps and won ₹2.02 Lakhs, beating ‘Mantri97’ (2nd for ₹1.48 Lakhs) heads-up.

Nakul NakulSharma11’ Sharma (Won Tornado ₹3.5 Lakhs GTD for ₹89,840), ‘pokeraddictive’ (Won Holdem Bash ₹2.50 Lakhs GTD for ₹48,253), Sanjay Floppednuts’ Kumar (Won Ultimate DST ₹1.5 Lakhs GTD for ₹39,580) and ‘anindian’ (Won Sunday Punch ₹1.25 Lakhs GTD for ₹27,018) were the other known Sunday winners on Adda52.
