WPTOI 2021 Day 15: Nitin Arora Denies Gagandeep Malik 50L WPT Mini Main Finale Title; Aditya N G, Karan Malhotra & Tanmay Benara Feature Among Other Big Winners

Sundays are always the most electrifying days on Adda52.com, but now with the 25 Crore GTD WPT Online India (WPTOI) 2021 edition running full steam, the action has reached a new peak on the site. Sunday marked Day 15 of the ongoing series and we must say that it was truly a power-packed day with a whopping 4698 entries coming in to crush the day’s overall GTD and take it to a staggering INR 1.27 Crore prizemoney. The day’s schedule had as many as 12 events running, with nine of them crowning champions. Last year’s WPT Table for 6 winner and this year’s ATOC 6 Max Championship champion, Nitin Arora, was the top scorer of the day as he topped the 398 Day 2 survivors in the 50 Lac GTD WPT Mini Main Event Finale to win INR 7.38 Lac (the single largest score of the day) and his first WPT Trophy from the ongoing series. This month is turning out to be a big one for Arora as he has already won two prestigious titles and last night he added a WPT title to his tally of the month.

Aditya N G came out all guns blazing last night as he shipped not one but two tourneys – the 15 Lac GTD WPT Mega Stack for INR 5.68 Lac and the 1.4 Lac GTD WPT Battlefield for INR 38,875, collecting a combined INR 6.12 Lac from his two victories. Karan Malhotra was the last player standing in the 30 Lac GTD WPT India Independence Day Special and won INR 5.65 Lac and a grand WPT trophy along with it. Tanmay Benara ( won the 6 Lac GTD WPT Monster Turbo for INR 1.53 Lac prize) and Sandeep Varma (won the 5 Lac GTD WPT Hustle for INR 77,940) featured among the other prominent winners of the day. Let us check out the highlights from Day 15 of the WPTOI series!
