Wednesday turned out to be another value-driven day for the MTT players, with all sites barring Spartan Poker filling in significant overlays.

Anant Purohit, one of the top winners of 2020, has kept a relatively low profile this year. He made a smashing return to the spotlight last night after taking down Spartan Poker’s ₹23 Lakhs GTD Destiny for ₹6.28 Lakhs. Along with his second Destiny title, he became the first player to win a seat in the Destiny 19.0 SnG Finale.

The other title winners were all familiar names like Devrat Singh, Sandeep Bhatnagar, Young Gun Gaurav Sood, and Arpan Majhi.

Here are the Wednesday highlights!
