Last night, we saw a number of high-value tourneys coming to a close on adda52.com and the biggest of them all was the 17 Lac GTD Ballers that pulled in an impressive 373 entries and generated a hefty INR 25.55 Lac prizepool that ultimately got distributed among the top 38 finishers.

It was ‘sammybhai’ who emerged victorious to bank INR 6.38 Lac prize, after outlasting a star-studded field that included accomplished pro Raghav Bansal (runner-up for INR 3.87 Lac), Sumit Sapra (3rd for INR 2.81 Lac), Arjanveer Singh Chadha (4th for INR 2.04 Lac), Chirag Bhardwaj (5th for INR 1.37 Lac), Kamal Naruka (7th for INR 76,652), and Kapil Arora (8th for INR 63,876) all finishing deep.
