The Wednesday turnouts across the domestic sites were still short of what the operators had put up in guarantees. Still, the traffic has undoubtedly picked up after the 2020 WSOP Online Series. PokerGuru Ambassadors had another smashing day with the team members finishing 1-2 in two marquee tourneys alongside several other deep runs.

Here’s the complete recap.

 

Spartan Poker

The ₹50 Lakhs GTD Battlefield played out its third starting flight yesterday. 501 runners registered for the ₹2,750 buy-in tourney on Day 1C, adding to the existing 709 entry pool (Day 1A – 360 and Day 1B – 349).
