As expected, it wrapped up with a grand success, drawing in a total of 303 entries and generating INR 12.12 Lac, which ultimately got distributed among the top 30 players. Banking the lion’s share was none other than the popular pro Gagandeep Malik aka ‘gaganhyd’ who defeated ‘zeigler’ (runner-up for INR 1.84 Lac) and walked away with the top prize of INR 3.10 Lac for his win.
