By Nimisha Popat

With Friday came back to back flagships that greeted the virtual felts. Be it IOPC, AOPC, or PMVS; every flagship was loaded with nail-biting action.

Here is the story on full action at different flagships on Friday:

The highlight tourney at Spartan Poker last night was 45 Lakhs GTD IOPC Event #12 The Elite. The tourney received an enormous response and managed to garner 615 entries crushing the guarantee up to Rs.61.50 lakhs. The final result that went down was a two-way deal between Guneet Kwatra(came 2nd and banked Rs.9.50 lakhs) and ‘RegularPlaya’(won and banked Rs. 9.82 lakhs).

The next tourney that turned a lot of heads was 15 lakhs GTD TGIF which gathered a whopping 1533 entries making the guaranteed prize pool up to Rs.22.99 lakhs. ‘GODSENT’ managed to claim his throne and take along Rs.3.49 lakhs. ‘TheSightseer’ came in close second and took home Rs.3.33 lakhs.


PokerBaazi’s highlight tourney was 10 Lakhs GTD PMVS Event #13 The Ridge. It successfully registered 344 entries where the top 49 players were rewarded with min-cash.

PokerStars India

PokerStars India has been lately facing the trouble to pull-in crowds, thus leaving huge sums in overlays to fill at every tourney. The same was the case last night. At 10 Lakhs GTD Uppercut Magic Edition, despite pulling-in 223 participants, the site still had to fill an overlay of Rs.1.08 lakhs. However, Rajat Sharma(won Rs. 2.01 lakhs) managed to take down PokerGuru Ambassador Arjanveer Singh Chadha(won Rs. 1.21lakhs) during the final neck to neck competition.

The next tourney that pulled-in 142 entries were the 5 Lakhs GTD Friday Euphoria where the site had to fill-in an overlay of Rs.1.45 lakhs. Guneet Kwatra took down the title by defeating ‘max2172’(won Rs.75065) and won Rs.98956. It was a good day for Kwatra indeed.
