Last week’s Wednesday High Roller runner-up finisher Vishal Ojha (2nd for 3.91 Lakhs) again came up one place short of the finish line.

The upcoming poker star Areyann Gurbaxani was another Wednesday trailblazer who won two tournaments and chopped another with none other than Ashit Sharma, collectively banking 3.92 Lakhs.
