While the first few days of the WPT India series did not disrupt the online traffic too much, the start of the Main Event yesterday resulted in a noticeable decline.

Tournament turnouts on Spartan Poker were a bag of mixed results. The Friday major The Elite ₹15 Lakhs GTD brought in 170 entries (84 unique, 39 re-entries, and 47 rebuys) that helped smash the guarantee with a prize pool collection of ₹17 Lakhs. In the end, Neel ‘Worm33’ Joshi came out on top to win ₹4.27 Lakhs. On the other hand, the other major, TGIF ₹10 Lakhs GTD, could only muster 536 entries (255 unique, 106 re-entries, and 175 rebuys) and got hit by a ₹1.96 Lakhs overlay. Benefitting the most from the value on offer was ‘Laard Labakdas,’ who topped the field to win ₹1.94 Lakhs.

On PokerBaazi, the two Friday majors had relatively smaller guarantees, and both avoided shortfalls. The flagship Friday tournament, Fri-YAY ₹10 Lakhs GTD, logged in 315 entries (133 unique and 182 re-entries) that helped generate a prize pool of ₹12.60 Lakhs. ‘hitmanharry’ emerged the winner and collected ₹2.20 Lakhs. The Friday SuperStack ₹3 Lakhs GTD attracted 157 entries (87 unique and 70 re-entries), making for a ₹3.14 Lakhs prize pool. Taking down the title for a ₹80,855 payday was Imdad ‘rahuljohn1983’ Ahmed.

Adda52’s The Barcelona ₹15 Lakhs GTD was hit the hardest with a ₹2.32 Lakhs overlay from 185 entries (125 unique and 6- re-entries). ‘Bit2Easy’ was the last player standing in the field and won ₹4.20 Lakhs. In fact, ‘Bit2Easy’ also scored in Adda52’s Hollywood ₹2.5 Lakhs GTD, finishing 11th for ₹5,000. The event suffered a shortfall of more than ₹50,000 via 108 entries (65 unique and 43 re-entries), and ‘Masterroshi’ won the top honors of ₹72,500.

PokerStars India’s signature Friday tournament, Uppercut – Progressive KO [6-Max] Magic Edition ₹8 Lakhs GTD, also filled in an overlay of close to ₹82,800 through 163 entries (85 unique and 78 re-entries). Taking advantage of the value on offer was ‘bettingkingg’ who bagged a top prize of ₹1.91 Lakhs for their win.

The other high-value event on PokerStars India was the 6-Max NLHE that had its guarantee reduced from ₹2 Lakhs to ₹1.5 Lakhs. The event registered 101 entries (71 unique and 30 re-entries), creating a prize pool of ₹1.51 Lakhs. Akash ‘AroraSahab’ Arora topped the field to win ₹29,801, after striking a three-way deal with Philip ‘minisha_lamba’ Jude (runner-up for ₹22,793) and Vivek ‘lurkingbeast26’ Mahato (3rd for ₹26,649).

On 9stacks, the daily mainstay tournament, StackUp @8pm ₹2.5 Lakhs GTD, was not able to escape the overlay storm as well. The event was championed by tournament regular Sabir ‘Sabir’ Hossain for ₹65,000.
