PokerGuru’s Chota Machhi, a.k.a. Arpit Jain, had been missing from the streaming circuit for the last two weeks, ever since testing positive for COVID-19. After recovering, Jain streamed PokerStars India`s ₹5 Lakhs GTD Eliminator on Saturday.
This was a charity stream with Jain announcing that he would donate any winnings towards COVID relief. Unfortunately, he kept his non–ITM record running by bricking two bullets in under an hour of play.

Like last time, he humorously titled his stream– “High chance I bust my site BANKROLL today.”
