The live-action is flourishing with the third edition of the World Poker Tour (WPT) India fast picking up steam. Fortunately, this has not disrupted the online traffic, with most sites posting healthy turnouts in their major tournaments last night.

The biggest guaranteed tournament yesterday, Adda52’s Melbourne event was able to break out of the overlay doldrums and managed to collect ₹20.55 Lakhs in prize money through 411 entries (241 unique and 170 re-entries). Chirag ‘mahikk’ Bhardwaj bested PokerGuru Ambassador Kartik ‘Pegasus1505’ Ved in the finale and walked away with a hefty ₹5.09 Lakhs payday. Ved banked ₹3.08 Lakhs for his second-place finish. ‘newkidpoker’ was the other big winner on the site as he took down the Hollywood event for ₹68,772.

On PokerBaazi, the biggest tournament of the day was The Summit ₹15 Lakhs GTD that logged in 264 entries (138 unique and 126 re-entries), comfortably smashing the advertised guarantee with a collection of ₹19.80 Lakhs in prize money. Aditya ‘gangajal’ Sushant came out on the top of the field to win the title for ₹4.37 Lakhs. It is worth mentioning that Sushant has won The Summit three times in the past and finished runner-up once – this is the fourth time he won this specific tournament. It was otherwise another busy day for the WSOP bracelet winner who, along with taking down the online major, also bagged a large stack on Day 1 of the ₹25K Big Bounty at WPT India.

The other Thursday major on the site, Thursday MonsterStack ₹5 Lakhs GTD also overshot its guarantee with 224 entries (138 unique and 86 re-entries) making for a ₹5.60 Lakhs prize pool. Seasoned regular Arsh ‘Button_Hai_Bro’ Grover, who is another tournament reg playing the WPT India series, banked ₹1.31 Lakhs from his online exploits last night.

On Spartan Poker, Anurag ‘Norman Bates’ Srivastava topped a 254-strong field (128 entries, 43 re-entries, and 83 rebuys) to win the Head-Hunter ₹10 Lakhs GTD for ₹2.36 Lakhs. Interestingly, Srivastava was one of the top contenders in The Summit as well and ended up posting a deep, third-place finish for ₹1.97 Lakhs. He has, with these two scores, earned a cumulative ₹4.33 Lakhs in just 24 hours!

The Highroller ₹10 Lakhs GTD on PokerStars India has found momentum, and this time too, it surpassed its guarantee. The tournament gathered 167 entries (94 unique and 73 re-entries), collecting a prize pool worth ₹11.69 Lakhs. ‘The AnnihiIator’ came out on top to win ₹2.36 Lakhs in first-place prize money. However, the other high-value event on PokerStars India, The Classic ₹2 Lakhs GTD, suffered a marginal ₹18,500 overlay, via 110 entries (77 unique and 33 re-entries). The event was championed by Dhinesh ‘you3betl4bet’ Kumar who took home ₹45,477, following a heads-up deal with ‘IPPA@PS’ (runner-up for ₹43,649).

9stacks’ unique Thunder ₹5 Lakhs GTD experienced a shortfall of ₹44,000 through 114 entries (69 unique, 27 re-entries, and 18 re-buys). Making good use of the value on offer was Chandan ‘darkfish’ Arora, who trounced the field to collect the title and top prize of ₹1.35 Lakhs. Arora, in fact, ran deep in several events last night, the most notable of which were Adda52’s Melbourne (14th for ₹20,550) and PokerStars India’s Highroller (6th for ₹54,610).
