10 Lac GTD APF Eclipse

The other marquee tourney on yesterday’s APF schedule, the 10 Lac GTD APF Eclipse, attracted a field of 163 entries. In the end, it was lawyer-turned poker pro Ashish ‘rocky3705’ Ahuja who shipped the tourney after outlasting Neeraj ‘NEERAJ2828’ Bajaj (runner-up for INR 1.70 Lac) in heads-up to bank INR 2.70 Lac. The Chandigarh-based pro is one of the top MTT players in the country and has already won over INR 2 Crores this year.
