In the absence of a flagship MTT series and with the Deltin Poker Tournament (DPT) underway in Goa, the Friday MTTs lacked the usual punch.

Sunday`s The Millionaire Series Main Event runner-up finisher, Young Gun Ujjwal Narwal, emerged as the day’s biggest winner as he took down Adda52’s The Ballers for 5.20 Lakhs. He had won The Mint on Tuesday, and last night`s victory has guaranteed him the #1 spot in the weekly leaderboard standings. Meanwhile, Anurag Srivastava shipped Adda52’s Friday Bounty for 1.04 Lakhs.

Anirudh Reddy championed PokerBaazi’s The Weekly HighRoller for 3.60 Lakhs.

Abhishek Chaurasia, Adarsh Jha, Areyann Gurbaxani, Sumeet Rajpurohit, Rupam Thakur, Sumit Ahluwalia, Mohit Kumar Singh, and Sarvesh Sharma were the other prominent winners.

Here are the Friday highlights!
