The World Poker Tour Online India (WPTOI) series closed out its penultimate week`s run on Adda52 on Sunday, and the ₹1 Crore GTD WPT Quad 9 dominated the day`s action. The multi-flight tourney finally saw the Adda52 regular ‘xoredvoid’ besting Vaibhav Sharma in the heads-up finale to take home the single-biggest payout of Sunday worth ₹17 Lakhs!

In fact, the online phenom also final-tabled PokerBaazi’s BSS SuperStack, lapping up ₹17.13 Lakhs in Sunday winnings.

Spartan Poker hosted it’s third The Millionaire edition of August, and topping the 1,863-entry field was Rishab Malik.

Last night, he did even better, pocketing ₹10.52 Lakhs from three ITM finishes, including two final table payouts.

The well-known TLB crusher Bhanu Prakash KC shipped PokerBaazi’s BSS SuperStack for ₹3.93 Lakhs, while Rajat Sharma championed PokerStars India’s Sunday Highroller for ₹3.07 Lakhs.
