This Week in Poker: August 3 – 9

In the PokerGuru feature ‘This Week in Poker,’ we bring you the weekly roundup of the most significant online scores by Indian MTT players and the top stories from both the live and online poker circuit. Here are this week’s top stories!

The first weekend of August was a firecracker one, with the second edition of the PokerBaazi Classics wrapping up on Sunday and Spartan Poker`s Freedom Celebration Series hosting a slew of flagship tournaments.

The offline action was also in top gear as Adda52`s Colossus High Roller Series and the PokerStars-powered Asia Pacific Poker Tour Manila drew to a scintillating close on Sunday.

Team India has been a dominating force in the Asian tournament circuit this year, and our Indian challengers did the country proud by reeling in four titles, and several FT finishes at the just-concluded APPT Manila. Dhanesh Chainani was the biggest mover and shaker from the team for his third-place finish in the APPT Manila Main Event worth ₱5,409,000 (~₹77.35 Lakhs) – his second-best live score to date. Chainani`s Main Event score catapulted him to a significant lead across the Indian scores (live and online), making him our PokerGuru Star of the Week!”

Chainani was part of a three-way deal in the APPT Manila Main Event. Singapore’s Xin Hua Lai whisked away the title and the top prize of ₱5,973,000. Netherland’s Thijs Hilberts finished runner-up in the event for the second time in a row, netting ₱6,071,000.

The Indian contingent clinched four titles in the series, the last of which was won by seasoned MTT pro Dhaval Mudgal who shipped Event #35: Flipout, picking up his maiden PokerStars LIVE title and ₱96,000 (~₹1.37 Lakhs).

Mudgal, Young Gun Kanchan Sharma, Siddarth Singhvi, and Jasven Saigal reeled in FT finishes in the last leg of the series.

With the APPT Manila getting over, the tournament action has moved back to Vietnam, where the APT Vietnam Ho Chi Minh got underway at the Saigon Poker Club on August 8. India’s Manoj Ramakrishna got the team its first score in the series with a deep run in the Warm-Up Event, finishing fifth for VND 134 Million (4.53 Lakhs). Vietnam’s Phan Huu Minh Tri won the tournament for VND 535 Million following a three-way deal.

APPT Manila wasn`t the online live tournament series keeping the Indian poker community busy. After four months, the live tournament action roared to life in Goa with Casino Deltin Royale playing host to the Adda52 Colossus High Roller Series. The three-event series saw Shravan Chhabra grabbing the ₹50K Warm-up Bounty title for ₹8.96 Lakhs. The IPC Megastacks Main Event champion, Young Gun Siddhanth Kripalani, topped the 69-entry field in the ₹200K High Roller to win his second live title of the year and a hefty ₹45.28 Lakhs cash prize. Aditya GS finished runner-up for ₹25.87 Lakhs. Nishant Sharma shipped the ₹100K Main Event for ₹33.15 Lakhs, while Spartan Poker Team Pro Nikita Luther (2nd for ₹21 Lakhs) and PokerGuru Ambassador Faiz Alam (3rd for ₹12.44 Lakhs) locked in the other top payouts.

With so much happening on the live poker circuit, the online winners were left relatively pale in comparison for a change. However, this doesn`t apply to Shagun Jain, who wrote his name into the history books after topping a stacked 3,797-entry field in PokerBaazi`s 2 Crores GTD PBC#22 Game Changer to collect a jaw-dropping 25.30 Lakhs. With the victory, the Jaipur-based player became the first to win the PokerBaazi headliner for an unprecedented second time. Sumit Kumar placed runner-up for 17 Lakhs, with Avijit Jaiswal collecting 13 Lakhs in third place.

The leaderboard toppers, Rising Star Ritwik Khanna, Young Gun Anuj Yadav, and Siddharth Gangwar, raked in the other massive scores in online tournaments this week.

With India`s 75th Independence Anniversary just around the corner, several poker platforms have rolled out a barrage of Independence-themed promotions.

While Spartan Poker’s Freedom Celebration Series is already coasting to guarantee-crushing turnouts, PokerBaazi’s brand-new Baazi Turbo Series will start on Sunday. The fast-paced series has 45 turbo events on the schedule and over 5 Crores in guaranteed prizes!

Not one to be left behind, IndiaPlays has announced a set of “Independence Special” promotions – a 5 Lakh GTD tournament, a 1.50 Lakhs GTD Freeroll & five 50K GTD Bank Roll Buster tournaments – all starting on August 15.

For upcoming players, MPL Poker is running a host of daily freerolls & high-value micro MTTs, guaranteeing 51,000 in prizes daily.

In more good news for players, the recently launched online poker site, PokerStreet, is running the “Race to Goa” promotion, offering cash game players a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Goa!

Asia’s favorite online poker room, Natural8, is hosting the massive $5 Million GTD Zodiac Festival from July 31 – August 14.

In another much-cheered news by the poker community, WSOP put up the details for the 2022 WSOP Online Series. The US edition will feature 33 bracelet events (an additional six bracelet events each for Michigan and Pennsylvania residents), followed by the international leg on GGPoker that will run 33 bracelet events (August 14 – October 18)!

2022 APPT Manila

The 2022 Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Manila for another live festival that kept us busy this past week. The marquee series made a thrilling comeback after a three-year hiatus at the PokerStars LIVE poker room at the iconic Okada Manila.

Following a short battle, Lai emerged victorious to earn a hefty ₱5,973,000 payday and the PSPC package.

Shagun Jain Creates History; Becomes First Player to Win PokerBaazi’s Game Changer For a Second Time For ₹25.30 Lakhs!

This past Sunday was a smashing one, with two eight-figure guarantee tournaments playing down to a winner! Taking the cake was seasoned pro Shagun Jain! The Jaipur-based player created history by becoming the first to win PokerBaazi`s Game Changer for a second time! Jain, who won the Game Changer 2.0 title in 2019, repeated the feat by taking down the ₹2 Crores GTD PBC#22 Game Changer last night for a jaw-dropping ₹25.30 Lakhs.

Sumit Kumar (2nd for ₹17 Lakhs) and Avijit Jaiswal (3rd for ₹13 Lakhs) banked the other seven-figure scores in the PBC#22 Game Changer.

The final day of the PokerBaazi Classics 2.0 crowned many big winners!

Mahajan wrapped up his Sunday run with ₹9.60 Lakhs in total winnings. Pankaj Khandelwal finished runner-up in the PBC#20 BSS Superstack for ₹5.84 Lakhs.
