A turnout of 578 entries helped generate a guarantee-smashing ₹28.90 Lakhs. The former Millionaire X5 champion Arjun ‘Don Julio’ Singh Kochhar powered his way through the reg-infested field to become the sixth player to book a Destiny 16.0 SnG finale seat, as he pocketed a whopping ₹7.51 Lakhs. The title victory brought Kochhar his second-best score on Spartan Poker, improving his recorded earnings on the site to over ₹60 Lakhs.
