Gagandeep Singh, Manish Lakhotia, Kunal Vohra, Vishal Bajaj & Arsh Grover Bank Million-Plus Sunday Paydays!

What a Sunday it was with the top four online poker sites in the country all hosting a marquee series. While Spartan Poker’s Ultimate Value Series (UVS) and Adda52’s Deltin Online Poker Tournament (DOPT) culminated yesterday, PokerBaazi’s inaugural National Poker Series (NPS) made a guarantee-smashing debut. PokerStars India’s Summer Series has one more day to go before wrapping up.

For a change, the biggest prize pool guarantee on offer wasn`t in Spartan Poker’s The Millionaire but Adda52’s DOPT Main Event. Gagandeep Singh traversed the 1,507-entry field in the ₹1.50 Crore GTD DOPT headliner to claim a career-best ₹24.70 Lakhs payday!

Kunal Vohra bagged Spartan Poker’s The Millionaire title, banking a jaw-dropping ₹17.44 Lakhs (cumulatively) for the win. Young Gun Arsh Grover was eyeing his career-second Millionaire title and came close enough with a second-place finish worth ₹9.59 Lakhs. He also finished fourth in Adda52’s DOPT 6 Max Showdown for ₹2.37 Lakhs, adding ₹12.20 Lakhs in Sunday winnings.

Abhinav Iyer (Won Spartan Poker’s Sunday Superstack for ₹8.14 Lakhs), Rohit Behal (Won Adda52’s DOPT 6 Max Showdown for ₹7.75 Lakhs), Siddharth Gangwar (Won Spartan Poker’s Destiny 19.0 Finale for ₹5 Lakhs), Arun Sriram (Won Adda52’s DOPT June Special for ₹4.04 Lakhs), Sameer Tavanandi (Won PokerBaazi’s NPS#3 Evening Slam Dunk for ₹3.22 Lakhs), Anant Purohit (Won PokerBaazi’s NPS#6 Sprint for ₹2.52 Lakhs) and PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh (Won PokerStars India’s Summer Series – 126 The Big Crunch for ₹2.02 Lakhs) were the other big Sunday winners!

The much-awaited National Poker Series (NPS) commenced yesterday and the opening day hosted six events. Setting the stage for what promises to be an epic series was the ₹50 Lakhs GTD NPS Kick-Off. The ₹2,750 entry buy-in event played out two out of its four starting flights, i.e., Flight 1A & 1B.

The ambitious NPS Golden Rush got off to a flying start with Flight 1A registering a whopping 1,995 entries and 260 runners advanced to Day 2. ‘fisheries’ (576,000), ‘psilocybin1’ (397,000), and one of the NPS Kick-off Flight 1B chip leaders, Yogiraj ‘Yogiraj’ Singh (393,000), bagged the top three stacks in the opening flight of the NPS Golden Rush.

Daily Majors: Dinesh Singh, Sameer Tavanandi, Devang Yadav & Dhinesh Kumar Headline the Tuesday Flagships

Tuesday fared relatively better than Monday, with a significant uptick in MTT turnouts.

For low and mid-stakes players, Spartan Poker’s Ultimate Value Series (UVS) provided ample action.

Here is a quick recap of all that transpired yesterday.

 

Spartan Poker

As on most days, Spartan Poker played host to the biggest guaranteed tourney of the day, with the ₹16 Lakhs GTD Mega Stack – Millionaire Bubble holding that distinction. The ₹3,300 entry buy-in event recorded 584 entries, and the top 55 places got a share of the ₹17.52 Lakhs prize pool. The tourney played down to a heads-up deal with ‘Exhaust’ (anonymity requested), walking away with the title and ₹2.82 Lakhs in prize money following a heads-up deal with Sameer ‘Silent Assasin’ Tavanandi (runner-up for ₹2.73 Lakhs). Subhojit ‘subhojitR’ Roy fell out on the money bubble in 56th place to win a free ticket to the Millionaire Day 1A (April 15 at 7 PM).

The second Tuesday marquee, the ₹6.5 Lakhs GTD The Race, could only muster 411 entrants, with the site compensating for the ₹33,500 overlay shortfall. After more than seven hours of non-stop play, Dhinesh ‘kendralust’ Kumar juggernaut his way to the top to collect his first MTT title of the year and a ₹1.30 Lakhs payday. He has crossed ₹2.40 Crores in lifetime winnings after the Tuesday night score. Jujhar ‘ROCKSTAR777’ Kochhar finished runner-up for ₹86,645.

The theme on Day 2 of the UVS was BOOST, with all six tourneys sporting the fast-paced Boost format. The day`s featured UVS tourney, the ₹4.85 Lakhs GTD UVS #12 DeepStack Boost found a champion in ‘Jasonroyce,’ who banked ₹81,803 after cutting a three-way deal with ‘VM.Varga’ (runner-up for ₹74,362) and ‘leo9dus’ (3rd for ₹72,289).

 

PokerStars India
