The most prominent of the winners last night was Young Gun Arsh ‘BiggggTymeR’ Grover, who happens to be one of the top scorers this year. There seems to be no slowing down for Grover anytime soon as he championed a field of 208 entries (142 unique and 66 re-entries) to win the INSCOOP-124 Deepstack ₹5 Lakhs GTD yesterday for ₹92,505. Kapil ‘racemonk’ Arora finished runner-up for ₹69,809. With this score, Grover has crossed ₹90 Lakhs in profits this year!
