As we cross the mid-week, the virtual MTT action is gaining steam! A nice addition to the choc-a-bloc schedule of flagship tournaments was the opening flight of PokerDangal’s biggest-ever 50 Lakhs GTD Destiny Changer!

And while the regs had plenty of options, the upcoming players weren`t left out either, as Pocket52`s Pocket Friendly Series had eight events on the tap yesterday, including Flight 1C of the 15 Lakhs GTD BRACELET.

Speaking of the Wednesday chartbusters, no one came close to Siddharth Gangwar`s prolific run! The 28-year-old IIT Delhi alumnus won two tournaments and cashed another six, making away with the day`s best 6.31 Lakhs to climb to #7 in the annual leaderboard rankings.. He took down Spartan Poker’s Wednesday High Roller (5.25 Lakhs) and PokerBaazi’s Afternoon Boost (74,708). Vishal Ojha pocketed 3.68 Lakhs for his runner-up finish in the Wednesday High Roller.

The four-time Battle Royale champion Anmolraj Singh Chawla took down the day’s biggest guaranteed event, Spartan Poker’s Destiny, for 3.87 Lakhs and a seat in the Destiny 24.0 SnG Finale. He chopped the Wednesday flagship heads-up with ‘bluechipp’ (2nd for 3.56 Lakhs).

Priti Tiwari made a grand debut on Adda52 as she won the Maverick on what was her first tournament on the site, netting 3.05 Lakhs. She struck a three-way deal with ‘sammy19’ (2nd for 2.48 Lakhs) and Samit Mehta (3rd for 2.32 Lakhs)!

Shrey Baj was another player who won two tournaments yesterday – Spartan Poker’s Sundowner (58,125) and PokerBaazi’s Hyper Sprint (49,749) – collectively adding 1.33 Lakhs to his burgeoning bankroll.

The two-time The Millionaire champion Ayush Garg came out on top in PokerBaazi’s (7-Max) Daily SPRINT to collect 1.18 Lakhs (2.03 Lakhs overall), with Vinayak Bajaj finishing runner-up for 83,080.

Rohit Mishra made the victory march in PokerBaazi’s (7-Max) SPRINT to collect 1.02 Lakhs – his first title in two months. He chopped the 9 PM marquee heads-up with ‘JusticeLeague’ (2nd for 91,921).

Tuesday’s (7-Max) SPRINT winner Rising Star Aman Parakh clinched the Wednesday PN for 99,675, picking up his third title this week and crossing 5 Crores in online winnings. Yesterday`s Ultrasonic winner Karan Malhotra pocketed 67,275 in second place.

PokerGuru Ambassador Rony Chowdhury won MPL Poker’s Wednesday Bonanza for 70,500 and Mumal Bhati pocketed 44,850 in second place.
