With less than two months left for 2022 to wrap, we have finally had the BIGGEST Sunday of the year! While Spartan Poker’s Final Table Series (FTS) 5.0 concluded with a bang, PokerBaazi’s inaugural G.O.A.T. stole the show!

India’s first, and to date, biggest online tournament, offered a never-before-seen ₹7 Crores in guarantee! The ₹11,000 buy-in, 8 Qualifier-long mega tournament registered 7,233 entries to hit a new record by generating a jaw-dropping ₹7.20 Crores prize pool!

The finale of such an event was, expectedly, a heavily contested one. In the end, Rohit Kumar bagged the bragging rights of becoming the first-ever G.O.A.T champion and collected a life-changing ₹94.69 Lakhs for his breakout run. A heads-up deal ensured Puneet Sachan a monstrous ₹68.73 Lakhs for his runner-up finish.

Kumar, a 35-year-old data scientist at Walmart, residing in Bengaluru, said the following on his GOAT victory, “Struggle and failure teach us the most.” Wise words from a man who now has the second-largest online score in the domestic circuit, after Abhishek Maheshwari, PokerBaazi’s first-ever EndBoss champion.

Given the magnitude of the event, the top 10 finishers in the GOAT entered the ‘Millionaire’s Club.’ Besides Kumar and Sachan, the eight-handed final table comprised Young Gun Anmol Mehta (3rd for ₹31.52 Lakhs), Avish Sharma (4th for ₹27.13 Lakhs), Shashank Shekhar (5th for ₹23.03 Lakhs), Vishal Kumar (6th for ₹19.43 Lakhs), Vinayak Bajaj (7th for ₹16.19 Lakhs) and Anish Grover (8th for ₹13.24 Lakhs).

It was a choc-a-block lineup on PokerBaazi yesterday, and shipping the site’s other Sunday flagship, the (6-Max) BSS Championship, was Mohammad ‘Thepokerlion’ Shabaz for ₹11.54 Lakhs. WSOP Online bracelet winner Kartik Ved secured a runner-up finish worth ₹8.08 Lakhs and pocketed ₹9.95 Lakhs overall through five ITM finishes, crossing ₹9 Crores in tracked online winnings.

Online phenom Vaibhav Sharma came out on top in PokerBaazi`s BSS HighRoller, netting ₹6.77 Lakhs following a heads-up deal with Ayush Garg (2nd for ₹6.72 Lakhs). Sharma accumulated a whopping ₹11.30 Lakhs in Sunday winnings, hitting ₹9 Crores in online winnings. Garg collected ₹6.86 Lakhs in total earnings, storming into the “₹7 Crore Club.”

Gokul Raj ended an over three-month dry spell last night when he nailed PokerBaazi’s BSS SuperStack for ₹5.85 Lakhs (won ₹6.33 Lakhs overall) after besting Young Gun Aayush Arya (2nd for ₹3.72 Lakhs) heads-up.

Spartan Poker lit up the felts with a litany of mouth-watering tourneys as the FTS 5.0 wrapped up proceedings. Headlining the Sunday lineup was the ₹2 Crores GTD FTS #56 Main Event that crowned a champion in high-stakes crusher Sajal Gupta who took home a personal-best ₹39.67 Lakhs payday! Gupta also won himself a diamond-studded gold emblazoned Medallion studded with a 3-carat diamond and 37 grams of gold, along with an exclusive NFT! The lawyer-turned-poker pro Armaan Kochhar also pocketed a career-best ₹24.89 Lakhs for his second-place finish in the FTS 5.0 showstopper.

Abhishek Kumar got himself an FTS Gold Medallion after taking down the FTS #53 Sunday Special for ₹12.07 Lakhs (his first title in three months). He collected a career-best ₹12.80 Lakhs through six deep runs.

Young Guns Sanat Mehrotra (Won FTS #55 Maestro for ₹3.94 Lakhs) and Gaurav Sood (Won FTS #52 for ₹3.08 Lakhs) and Melo Partin (Won FTS #54 Double Chance for ₹2.13 Lakhs), won the last few FTS 5.0 Silver Medallions.

Tanmay Benara was the last player standing in PokerStars India’s Sunday headliner, Sunday Special – Boosted Guarantee, netting a site-best ₹4.63 Lakhs (won ₹5.50 Lakhs overall).

Vishal Bajaj won the second EPT Prague Step 3 qualifier on PokerStars India, securing an all-expenses paid package to the upcoming series worth ₹6 Lakhs.

Sarthak Singhal, Dayanand Prass, Aditya Kulkarni, Ambika Chowdhury, Ganesh Durgade, Rahul Agarwal, Manish Jangid, Ramakrishna Sagi, and Prithvi Singh shipped the other Sunday marquees.

Here are the Sunday highlights!

Buy-in – ₹11,000

Entries – 5,319

Re-entries – 1,914

Prize Pool – ₹7,20,00,000

Places Paid – 944

It was one of the most climactic Sundays for domestic online poker, as PokerBaazi played host to the G.O.A.T. finals that started at 9 PM. 1,036 qualifiers from a starting field of 7,233 entries (across eight Qualifiers) got back to the tables for a shot at winning the most-massive cash prize in Indian poker history.

While the first few Qualifiers registered subdued turnouts, a late rush in the final flight ensured the massive ₹7 Crores guarantee was not only met but comfortably crushed, and the prize pool stood at a never-seen-before ₹7.20 Crores.

PokerBaazi has emerged as a site that gives upcoming players a chance at winning life-changing money, EndBoss 1.0 champion Abhishek Maheshwari, EndBoss 2.0 champion Ishan Chugh and EndBoss 3.0 winner Jitendra Gadhwal being cases in point. In the wee hours of Monday, another relatively lesser-known player RohitHuskaralKumar, became the new poster boy for Indian poker after taking down the record-breaking event for a career-defining ₹94.69 Lakhs.

Kumar chopped the G.O.A.T title heads-up with Puneet ‘puneetdurr111’ Sachan, who made away with ₹68.73 Lakhs as the runner-up of the biggest tournament held in the country!
