The event played down to a four-way deal, and the former Value Bomb winner PokerGuru Ambassador Ratul ‘Atriohm’ Steves walked away with the title and ₹1.28 Lakhs in prize money. This win was Steves’ second time winning the ReCharge title. He had won the IOPC#30 ReCharge on January 18 for ₹4.45 Lakhs. It was also his third title victory of the year, boosting his lifetime tally to ₹4.10 Crores (₹1.66 Crores in net profits).
