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.
