Daily Majors: Singh, Dembla, Khandalkar & Srivastava Conquer the Monday Marquees

Mondays have always been slow on the virtual felts – a day when the regs take a day off to unwind after a hectic weekend, and yesterday was no different. With the party over for all the prominent online series, it was back to the regular Monday schedule across sites, and all the flagships got hammered with overlays!

Here is the complete recap.

 

Spartan Poker

The ₹12 Lakhs GTD ReCharge headlined the action on Spartan Poker on Monday. A player pool of 487 contenders was seen ponying up the ₹2,200 buy-in; nevertheless, the tourney still struggled to meet its advertised guarantee, ultimately incurring a deficit of ₹2.26 Lakhs. Mystery user ‘israp’ came out on top with ₹2.33 Lakhs in first-place prize money, while Pranav ‘pranavpoker’ Khandalkar padded his bankroll with a runner-up payout worth ₹1.48 Lakhs.

With this win, the champion has reached ₹5.88 Lakhs in earnings on Spartan Poker; however, they are still in the red for ₹1.89 Lakhs. Khandalkar, on the other hand, has accumulated ₹2.06 Crores in recorded online winnings, of which ₹73.47 Lakhs he has earned on Spartan Poker. Khandalkar also final tabled The Flash, finishing eighth for ₹14,160, taking his cumulative score for the night to ₹1.62 Lakhs.

The ₹6 Lakhs GTD The Flash suffered an overlay of ₹52,000 on the back of 548 entries. Rishab ‘rishabjain1983’ Jain triumphed over the field, which included defeating ‘yeaces’ (runner-up for ₹85,850) heads-up, to claim the title and top prize worth ₹1.04 Lakhs. Jain had won his last title in May when he had shipped PokerStars India’s ₹2 Lakhs GTD INSCOOP-28 Sixth Sense for ₹50,042. More than three months later, he finally broke away from the dry spell by winning a title. Jain also final tabled Spartan Poker’s Night Rider – Monster Stack, placing eighth for ₹6,690. He presently has ₹42.28 Lakhs in lifetime winnings.

 

Adda52

With the AOPS out of the way, Adda52 returned to its regular schedule of tournaments. The signature event that ran on Monday was the ₹10 Lakhs GTD Inception. After registering 290 entrants, the site had to fill in an overlay of ₹72,000. Shekhar ‘Brat_Poker’ Singh, who had won the Sunday Punch ₹5 Lakhs GTD on August 16, emerged victorious in this event, adding ₹2.56 Lakhs to his bankroll. Utkarsh ‘sam20542’ Srivastava finished runner-up for ₹1.52 Lakhs. Before this win, Singh was ranked #70 on the weekly leaderboards, and he jumped up four spots after the big finish.

Adda52’s ₹3 Lakhs GTD Hexagram was also hit by the overlay express. With 139 participants joining the competition, the tourney fell ₹22,000 short of the break-even mark. The anonymous user ‘Danger3040’ bested ‘ashu1990’ (runner-up for ₹55,500) heads-up to win the title and ₹84,750.

 

PokerBaazi

PokerBaazi`s ₹10 Lakhs GTD Bout attracted 342 entries, but it still wasn’t enough to meet the listed guarantee, resulting in a shortfall of ₹1.45 Lakhs. Prateek ‘khotasikka’ Singh decimated the field, banking the ₹2.10 Lakhs up-top, while Deepak ‘DEEPAKALLIN’ Sachdeva had to contend with a second-place payout of ₹1.47 Lakhs. Singh has accrued ₹20.92 Lakhs in winnings on PokerBaazi, with a profit of ₹8.02 Lakhs.

Himanshu ‘ISquirtBullets’ Dewan championed the ₹2 Lakhs GTD Grinders#4 Monday MegaStack for ₹60,000, just as site regular ‘Hades’ came in second for ₹42,000. The event garnered 85 entries, registering an overlay of ₹30,000.

 

PokerStars India

PokerStars India`s ₹6 Lakhs GTD Battle Royale logged in 172 entries to experience an overlay of ₹1.70 Lakhs. Online regular Harsh ‘kakori kabab’ Dembla was in fierce form last night and topped the field to claim a winner’s paycheque worth ₹1.40 Lakhs.

The other Friday headliner, the ₹10 Lakhs GTD TGIF, did well to bring in a field of 707 entries who bought-in for ₹1,650 to generate ₹10.60 Lakhs in the prize pool. The heads-up took place between the anonymous user ‘Hmmmok’ and Sathish ‘Jaqkten’ Ananth, and the duo cut a deal. The former prevailed and won ₹1.71 Lakhs and the title while Ananth took home the runner-up prize money worth ₹1.62 Lakhs.

Team Ukraine Defends IFMP Nation’s Cup World Championship Title, Team India Finishes 4th

The International Federation of Match Poker (IFMP) Nation’s Cup is arguably one of the most action-driven and ‘sportified’ global platforms among all the poker leagues in the sport. With the COVID-19 caused hiatus for live stops, the Nation`s Cup, too, had to be held online to meet the dates that were announced. Using CISCO`s Webex digital platform to conduct the proceedings, the IFMP Nation’s Cup World Championship played out over the weekend on May 30 & 31, with 120 players from 12 countries coming together to battle it out for the prestigious title!

In the end, it was the reigning champions Ukraine who went two for two by defending the title. Ukraine had debuted in the competition last year, where they dethroned reigning champions Ireland to claim the top spot with 1,837 points. Repeating much of that dominating form, the team took an early lead and held on to it to win the title with 1,369 points.

IFMP congratulated the team on their remarkable victory!

There was a sizable virtual rail rooting for Team India. Captained by Gaurav Gala and comprising of eight other team members, namely, Tanmay Bagga, Rishab Jain, Aditya ‘Bitti’ Agarwal, Krina Gala, Zubin Panthaki, Vidur Singhal, Anujkumar Kodam and Kalyan Chakravarthy, Day 1 saw wild swings in the team standings. India was placed fourth at the end of Day 1, a position it retained going into the finals. As it turned out, the team eventually finished in fourth place with 1,270 points.

Team Australia collected 1,320 points for a second-place finish, with Team Lithuania placing third with 1,281.5 points.

IFMP tweeted the official results.

Moving the Nations Cup online should be relatively easy for the IFMP to pull off considering how even the live matches are held on smart devices. As for the other elements that make the competition a team sport, the IFMP digital platform will allow players to see and communicate with their table competitors during the session, clarified the press release. The platform will also allow players to interact with teammates and the captain to strategize during the breaks.

For production purposes, all players will be shooting personal video introductions. Since players from around the world will be competing in the event at once, some countries will be playing the sessions in the mornings and some at night.

The current season of the Nations Cup had kicked off with Europe’s Nations Cup in Ukraine, where Spain was crowned the champion. The Asian Nations Cup was hosted in Taiwan, where 5 nations had qualified and Team India, captained by Gaurav Gala and consisting of, Aditya ‘Bitti’ Agarwal, Tanmay Bagga, Rishab Jain, Prateek Mishra, Krina Gala, and Taran Mundkar won the cup.
