On the heels of a cracking Sunday, the pace of action on adda52.com slowed down a little on Monday. While there were several high-value events taking place on the site, the most prominent among them all was the 10 Lac GTD Inception, which went on to register an impressive 522 entries, resulting in INR 16.70 Lac prizepool, which eventually got distributed among the top 55 finishers. The largest share of the prizepool went to online crusher Chirag Bhardwaj aka ‘mahikk’ who shipped the event to bank INR 4 Lac in the first-place prizemoney, after outlasting a notable online regular in Sandeep Varma aka ‘effuno’ in heads-up who settled for the runner-up prize of INR 2.33 Lac.
A young and very talented MTT player, Bhardwaj has made a habit of winning big on adda52.com. He has won so many tournaments on the poker site, including Beast (won multiple times), Adda52 Millions, Whale 6-Max, Godfather XI, Melbourne etc. He has been a dominating presence on the Adda52 felts. Just last month, he had shipped The Ballers and once again he proved his mettle as he added one more win to his resume by taking down the 10 Lac GTD Inception last night on the site.
