After an explosive Sunday, the online action slowed down considerably as the working week commenced. With the Spartan Super Series (SSS) over, tournament action was back to its usual pace at Spartan Poker. Monday’s run of events was headlined by the ReCharge ₹12 Lakhs GTD. The event garnered an impressive 658-player field (277 unique, 131 re-entries, and 250 rebuys), galloping past its advertised guarantee with a prize pool collection of ₹13.16 Lakhs. Well-known online pro Aniket ‘Anteman’ Waghmare clinched the title, banking the winner’s cheque worth ₹2.55 Lakhs. Waghmare, who has a Destiny title to his name and even took down the SSS #20 Afternoon Showdown ₹4 Lakhs GTD last month, defeated Anmol ‘Anzzzzz’ Mehta to the finish line.

The Bout ₹10 Lakhs GTD was the flagship tournament on offer at PokerBaazi. Pulling in 229 entries (133 unique and 96 re-entries), the event had to fill in a ₹84,000 overlay. Rahul ‘Clearsky’ Gupta bested well-known player Guruprasad ‘fish_calling’ Gupta (runner-up for ₹1.65 Lakhs) heads-up to claim the top prize worth ₹2.35 Lakhs.

Joining PokerBaazi on the overlay express was Adda52’s Goa Fest ₹8 Lakhs GTD. Registering 205 entries (115 unique and 90 re-entries), the tournament suffered a shortfall of ₹53,800. MTT specialist Vaibhav ‘alienrobot’ Sharma made good use of the value on offer and championed the event to win ₹2.22 Lakhs.

PokerStars India was another site that suffered a ₹75,000 loss in its Monday signature event – Monday Hustle ₹6 Lakhs GTD – through 175 entries (96 unique and 79 re-entries). PokerGuru Ambassador Faiz ‘LFGgggg’ Alam came out on top to win the title and ₹1.09 Lakhs in prize money.
