Daily Majors: Ankit Wadhawan Tops the Thursday Charts, Wins NPS Gold Medal & ₹13.79 Lakhs!

Thursday delivered a firecracker lineup of tournaments, with all the flagships crushing their listed guarantees comfortably. The inaugural National Poker Series (NPS) was, once again, the star attraction of the day, and PokerBaazi had six NPS events running, and five of them played down to a winner.

PokerGuru Ambassadors had a field day posting multiple FT scores along with winning an NPS gold medal. Ankit Wadhawan was, by and far, the star performer of the day. The Chandigarh-based MTT pro championed the NPS Deepstack Championship to win ₹10.66 Lakhs and his first NPS Gold Medal. He almost won a second flagship title in Spartan Poker’s Trending Thursday, placing runner-up for ₹3.13 Lakhs. Not just that, he bagged the Day 1A chip lead in the weekend flagship, the ₹1 Crore GTD The Millionaire. Take a bow, Ankit!

PokerGuru Ambassadors indeed dominated the action, with Ashish Ahuja (runner-up for ₹7.47 Lakhs) and Naresh Veeravalli (3rd for 4.82 Lakhs) cashing the top three payouts in the NPS DeepStack Championship.

Annant Jain took down Spartan Poker’s Trending Thursday for ₹4.71 Lakhs.

Young Gun Arsh Grover came out on top in PokerStars India’s Highroller for an impressive sixth time last night for ₹2.88 Lakhs, becoming only the third player on our tracked database to cross ₹8 Crores in lifetime online winnings.

Ashish Nailwal, Shashank Choudhary, Kunal Yadav, Aditya Kulkarni Monish Annthem, Utkarsh Vaish, Anmolraj Singh Chawla, Karan Malhotra, Varun Devayya, Srijan Batra, and Adwait Pol took down the other Thursday marquees.
