IPC crushes all guarantees in comeback series!

by Team Gutshot Posted on 22 Sep, 2019

It has been around a week since the India Poker Championship (IPC) concluded at Goa’s Big Daddy Casino. This was a much-awaited series as it marked the comeback of IPC after a hiatus of 3 long years. The Big Daddy poker room was buzzing between 11-15 September, with crowds coming in from across the country. Outcome? All 4 scheduled tournaments passed their advertised guarantees by a long way!

The series promised INR 3+ Crore in guaranteed prize money but when the floors filled up on Day 1, we knew it was going to cross this promised amount. By the end of the fifth day, IPC had broken attendance records in all their 4 tournaments and the overall series guarantee went up to INR 5.48 Crore. Here’s a summary of the performance of all the tournaments…

1) 10k Freezeout

  • Buy-in: INR 10,000
  • Entries: 437
  • Prize pool: INR 43+ Lakh
  • Places paid: 52
  • Min-cash: INR 9,550
  • Winner: Siddharth Mundada – INR 8,80,000

2) 100k Highroller

  • Buy-in: INR 1,00,000
  • Entries: 207
  • Prize pool: INR 2.03+ Crore
  • Places paid: 24
  • Min-cash: INR 1,88,600
  • Winner: Pranay Chawla – INR 51,66,800

3) 35k Main Event

  • Buy-in: INR 35,000
  • Entries: 777
  • Prize pool: INR 2.67+ Crore
  • Places paid: 86

  • Prize pool: INR 34.2+ Lakh
  • Places paid: 40
  • Min-cash: INR 18,100
  • Winner: Raghavendra Hada – INR 7,39,000

There were quite a few surprises that IPC had in store for the players apart from the big prize pools. All winners who had an account on Spartan Poker were eligible to getting 100% TDS refund, which amount to a lot for poker pros who bleed money in taxes. Apart from that, we even had ‘King of Instagram’ Dan Bilzerian make an appearance on the tournament floor at Big Daddy. He attended a press conference and even ended profitable after a night of high-stakes cash action on the VIP floor.
