Even without any flagship tournament series going on, Tuesday was choc-a-bloc with action, and a mix of pros and relatively lesser-known players dominated the headlines.

One of the top winners of August, PokerGuru Ambassador Vishal Bajaj, made another trailblazing run last night. He won Spartan Poker’s Mega Stack – Millionaire Bubble (for a second consecutive week) and placed second in PokerBaazi’s The Endeavour, netting ₹4.65 Lakhs from his explosive Tuesday run.

Here are the Tuesday highlights.
