Most of the other flagship tournaments were won by top regs, with Aditya Singh shipping Adda52’s Maverick for ₹3.82 Lakhs. PokerGuru Ambassador Mithun Mahesh took down PokerBaazi’s The Pride for ₹2.85 Lakhs.

The former IOPC – The Millionaire United champion, Young Gun Siddhanth Kripalani, came out on top in the IOPC #67 Wednesday Spotlight to collect his second IOPC title and a ₹2.75 Lakhs payday.

Anant Purohit shipped the ₹10 Lakhs GTD IOPC #68 All Rounder (Half Price Rebuy) for ₹1.89 Lakhs. (HU deal).
