Wednesday saw a similar response to Tuesday, with the vast majority of the day’s flagships falling prey to overlays. The day clearly belonged to the PokerGuru Ambassadors, with the team shipping the frontline tourneys across Spartan Poker, Adda52, and PokerBaazi.

PokerGuru Ambassador Devvrat Arya was the day’s biggest winner as he took down Spartan Poker`s ₹25 Lakhs GTD Destiny for ₹6.63 Lakhs. His fellow Team Ambassador’s Naresh Veeravalli (won Maverick for ₹3.90 Lakhs) and Laksh Pal Singh (won The Pride for ₹2.21 Lakhs) dominated the other featured tourneys.

The remainder of the month promises to be full to the brim with action. Today marks the start of one of the most awaited online stops of 2021, the 10th IOPC edition on Spartan Poker. The inaugural APT 2021 Online Series India will be commencing its run on PokerBaazi tomorrow. Even Adda52 has launched its biggest-ever leaderboard race, the Adda52 Champions Leaderboard (ACL). The 11-month-long race kicks off tomorrow with a whopping ₹2 Crores in cash prizes! Was there ever a better time to be a poker player in India?
