Spartan Poker`s Destiny 20.0 series found its second champion last night. Running on a reduced 26 Lakhs prize pool guarantee, the Wednesday flagship filled in a 29.25 Lakhs prize pool after 585 entrants signed up to play. Starting at 8 PM, the event ended at 4:20 AM with PokerGuru Ambassador Vivek ‘KasolHieghts’ Singh topping the field to win his second Destiny title for a 7.60 Lakhs payday. Not only did the Destiny score make him the day`s biggest winner, but it also secured him a seat in the 10 Lakhs GTD Destiny 20.0 SnG Finale set for September 5 (9 PM).
