Clinton “clinton_fern” Fernandes was the last player standing and registered his best finish on the site worth INR 4.89 Lac. He eventually struck a heads-up deal with Sheetal Jain aka “daddy5050” (runner-up for INR 4,62,455). Jain was in blistering form yesterday as she scored two final table finishes yesterday. Her second FT score came in Adda52’s Monster Turbo 5L where she finished 3rd for INR 63,750. Deepak “bothras” Bothra took the final spot on podium, finishing 3rd for 2.38 Lac.
