As we hit the mid-week yesterday, action on the online felts began to pick up pace. Wednesday saw a good number of high-value tourneys across major poker sites and headlining the action on India’s no.1 poker site – adda52.com was the 10 Lac GTD Maverick. As expected, the marquee Wednesday enjoyed an eventful run, pulling in a total of 696 entries and generating INR 15.83 Lac in prizepool. In the end, it was a notable online reg in Sanat Mehrotra aka ‘mehro2511’ who managed to run past the fierce competition to eventually ship the tourney for INR 3.64 Lac, while the musician-turned poker pro Dhaval ‘dirtyzoso’ Mudgal finished runner-up and walked away with INR 2.10 Lac prize.
Other notables ending their run on the final table were Rishi Mundhra (3rd for INR 142506), Shankar Agarwal (6th for INR 55419), Vinay BK (7th for INR 43544) and Priya Ranjan Das (8th for INR 31668).
