After a fire-cracking Sunday, it was a relatively slow Monday on the virtual felts last night that saw most majors struggling to meet their advertised guarantees.

With the PokerBaazi Premier League is now done and dusted, at least for the time being, the site’s flagship Monday tournament, The Bout ₹10 Lakhs GTD, registered a slight overlay of ₹44,000 through 239 entries (131 unique and 108 re-entries). Well-known poker pro Alok ‘TheProfessional’ Birewar decimated the field to clinch the title along with the top prize worth ₹2.35 Lakhs. The other high-value event on PokerBaazi last night was the Monday MegaStack ₹3 Lakhs GTD which too failed to meet its stated guarantee by ₹54,000. Anonymous player ‘Shiv04’ shipped the event, netting a payday of ₹80,400.

Adda52’s Goa Fest ₹8 Lakhs GTD managed to scrape in 166 entries (97 unique entries and 69 re-entries), resulting in a significant ₹2 Lakhs shortfall yesterday. ‘xoredvoid,’ a regular player on the site, took down the event, bagging a winner’s payday of ₹2.16 Lakhs. Meanwhile, another site regular, Naren ‘IMUNAGI’ Purohit, claimed the Hexagram ₹2.5 Lakhs GTD title for ₹73,009. The Hexagram, unlike the Goa Fest, collected a prize pool of ₹2.58 Lakhs via 142 entries (81 unique and 61 re-entries).

Spartan Poker’s ReCharge ₹12 Lakhs GTD was one of the few tournaments hosted last night that smashed its offered guarantee. Registering a massive field of 614 entries (271 unique, 119 re-entries and 223 rebuys), the ReCharge generated a prize pool of ₹12.28 Lakhs. Vinayak ‘tuktuki’ Bajaj championed the event, banking ₹1.99 Lakhs in first-place prize money. Incidentally, Bajaj will be making his way to the coastal state of Goa next week to participate in the final table of PPL #46: The MoneyMaker ₹1 Crore GTD with the second largest stack of 3,352,521.

PokerStars India conducted two big guaranteed events last night – the Monday Hustle ₹6 Lakhs GTD and Zoom 3-Max Progressive KO ₹2 Lakhs GTD. While the Monday Hustle logged in a very marginal overlay of about ₹2,700, the Zoom 3-Max PKO just about met its guarantee with the regular prize pool accumulating ₹1,00,250 and the bounty prize pool reaching ₹99,750. ‘rdx1111’ came out on top to win the Monday Hustle for ₹98,871 after a heads-up chop with Utsav ‘rannyOO6’ Taneja (runner-up for ₹1.09 Lakhs). The Zoom 3-Max PKO crowned a winner in Rajesh ‘MCallingStation’ Shukla who took home ₹44,954 for his hard work.

On 9stacks, the daily StackUp@ 8 PM ₹2.5 Lakhs GTD, was taken down by ‘EIMonje’ who defeated Raj Kumar ‘Fireman’ Gahlot (runner-up for ₹45,000) heads-up, adding ₹65,000 to his bankroll.
