India Online Poker Championship January 2021 Round-Up

by Donna Amo Posted on 06 Feb, 2021

The special 10th edition of India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) on Spartan Poker was everything that poker players expected it to be and more. The poker fiesta ended on a high note with some of the most memorable moments that will surely go down in history. Every passing edition of IOPC has continued to grow the game and this year was no different. The mega event started on January 14 and was brought to a fantastic conclusion on 3 February.

With a promised prize pool of a massive INR 28 Crore, it was undoubtedly the biggest online poker event in the country. It almost seemed like every poker player in the country was eagerly waiting for this grand event to kick-start. Let’s take a look at the highlights of this major tournament series.

Livestreaming To The Next Level

Keeping everything aside, one must surely bow down to the team of IOPC for successfully conducting six live streams as per schedule. Keeping the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ aside, IOPC brought poker pros like Celina Lin, Randy Lew, Sangeeth Mohan, Richard Haridasoham, Suresh Menon, and Muskan Sethi on board to ensure that every bit of that livestream was a visual treat. 

IOPC Main Event – The Crown

The Main Event of IOPC did not disappoint as it surpassed the promised guarantee to finally record INR 3.98 Crore as its final prize pool. The most prestigious title was won by Laksh Pal Singh aka ‘LuckyBhai$’ who was crowned the Main Event champion of IOPC January 2021. Singh went through a sea of 4,000 entries; finally rose up to the top spot and cashed INR 51.8 Lakhs.

Leaderboard Master

Grabbing the top spot of the IOPC leaderboard was the July 2020 IOPC leaderboard winner, Bhanu Prakash aka ‘spectre’ with a total of 13,262 points. Out of the 118 tournaments held, Prakash cashed in a jaw-dropping 81 of them. Topping the leaderboard once is a pretty big deal, doing it twice now that’s just pure skill.

Other memorable moments

Moments of love and laughter took place throughout the tournament series and live streams. Sanat Mehrotra shipped three tournaments in a day and this achievement will surely go down in history. Other players who made headlines were Arjanveer Singh Chadda, Shravn Amlekar, Vinayak Bajaj, Siddhanth Kripalani, Prafull Hasbe among others. Even poker pros took this chance to make it big as seasoned players like Aditya Sushant, Prakash Gupta, Gokul Raj, and others clinched titles in the IOPC Jan 2021. 


IOPC had some surprises up its sleeve. This time too, there were tickets worth several thousand given away during the stream, several poker pros made their presence felt and even comedian Suresh Menon joined in to add more colour.

To conclude, one can only say that IOPC Jan 2021 proved true to the tag line, ‘Like Never Before.’ For more such articles, keep reading GutshotMagazine.com. Follow us on FacebookInstagram, and Telegram.
