India’s first cryptographically secured poker network, Pocket52, closed out July in style with its inaugural Pocket Friendly Series (PFS), making a guarantee-crushing run from July 18 to 24!

A total of 275 events (including satellites and freerolls) formed part of the PFS schedule, and players flocked in to play in droves, with the week-long series clocking in a total of 40,792 unique players. The 97.18 Lakhs prize pool guarantee was also blown out of the water as the PFS ended up awarding 1,03,91,008 in cash prizes!

The 15 Lakhs GTD Bracelet Main Event was the star attraction of the first-ever PFS. The 1,100 buy-in event ran from July 18 to 25, bringing in 1,483 entries through 10 starting flights. The user ‘TryHard’ shipped the event for 2.13 Lakhs.

Besides the high-value tourneys, Pocket52 ran a 2 Lakhs GTD Warzone leaderboard race throughout the PFS, where anyone cashing any of the eligible PFS tournaments collected TLB points, and the top 10 ranked players on the leaderboard got a share from the 2 Lakhs prize pool. Shailesh ‘MrShailesh’ Kumar Patel bagged those honors on the back of 10 ITM finishes and supplemented the 1.50 Lakhs he won through them by bagging 50,000 in leaderboard prizes.

Niteen ‘niteenplus’ Raj (cashed for 1.37 Lakhs in the series) came second in the leaderboard rankings, and ‘Letv’ (cashed for 1.28 Lakhs in the series) finished third.
