Friday brought on the usual fireworks, and the top regs dominated most of the day`s flagships! Spartan Poker`s weekly Signature Tournaments and special High Rollers, along with PokerDangal’s biggest-ever ₹50 Lakhs GTD Destiny Changer and Pocket52’s Pocket Friendly Series (PFS), promise an action-packed weekend ahead.

Speaking of the Friday chartbusters, Aayush Arya was hands down the star last night with two flagship titles and a massive ₹10.85 Lakhs in total winnings to his name. He started his trailblazing run by championing PokerBaazi’s The Weekly High Roller (for ₹4.20 Lakhs) and took down Spartan Poker’s The Elite (for ₹6.65 Lakhs) a few hours later, jumping to #7 in the annual leaderboard rankings.

PokerGuru Ambassador Deepankur Gupta shipped the other Friday flagship on Spartan Poker, Friday High Roller, for ₹8.81 Lakhs. He also ran deep in PokerBaazi’s Daily SPRINT (23rd for ₹4,775), pocketing over ₹8.86 Lakhs.

Young Gun Gaurav Sood had been missing in action since getting married and took another few weeks off to visit Vietnam for the numerous live series in the South-Asian country. He got back to the online grind a few weeks back, and the online prodigy pulled out one of his characteristic runs last night, cashing a whopping ₹6.65 Lakhs across three ITM finishes. Sood placed third in Spartan Poker’s The Elite (₹3.09 Lakhs) and runner-up in PokerBaazi`s The Weekly HighRoller (₹2.95 Lakhs), becoming the first player on our tracked database to hit the ₹13 Crore milestone in online winnings.

Ujjwal Narwal was another Young Gun shipping a Friday flagship. He took down Adda52’s The Ballers for the second time this year for ₹4.24 Lakhs.

Yuvraj Singh, Abhishek Rathod, Bhuvan Bansal, Samyak Sethi, Siddharth Pandey, Randeep Lather, and Mohsin Shaikh shipped the other Friday majors.
