We are fast approaching the busy end of January with Spartan Poker`s IOPC, PokerBaazi`s APT 2021 Online Series India, and PokerStars India`s Winter Series all within sight.

As always, the Tuesday flagships outdid the Monday turnouts. Headlining the big winners of the day was Adda52`s first-ever Big Game champion Rahul Jain, who added a second flagship title to his tally after taking down The Mint for 3.24 Lakhs.

Here is a complete recap of all that transpired yesterday.
