The weekend is here and as usual, online poker action has picked up on all major poker platforms in the country. Yesterday saw India’s no.1 poker site – Adda52 hosting several high-value tournaments. Headlining them all was The Ballers featuring INR 17 Lac GTD prizepool. The marquee Friday online tourney wrapped up with a roaring success, drawing 548 entries and resulting in 37.53 Lac prizepool, more than the double of its guarantee. While top 55 shared the prizepool, the lion’s share went to a well-known reg in Kartik Ved aka ‘Pegasus1505’ who shipped it to bank INR 9 Lac in top prize.
Ved is one of the most known names on the circuit and has been crushing it since a long time. He has been in terrific form these last few months and has already won several popular tournaments on adda52.com this year. He kicked off the year with a Godfather win, which he followed up with a Hexagram victory. He also scored runner-up finishes in Adda52 Millions AF, Mega Suits AF, PLO High Roller, etc. Last night, he shipped The Ballers and showed why he is one of the best in the business.
