Well-known circuit player Deepak Bothra aka ‘bothras’ won the biggest tournament of the day for INR 7,90,913 after beating a field of 1,027 entries (including 917 re-entries).

Just on The Spartan Poker, he has shipped its feature tournament Destiny, twice, IOPC PLO SHR in Jan 2018, and Flash this month for over INR 4 Lakhs being his latest victory. The Adda52 feature Sunday win this time saw him adding a significant amount to his bankroll and he’ll be hoping to continue this winning trend ahead in the year as many exciting tournaments are already announced.
Given the prestige and value of the tournament, it saw some top regulars from the country participating in it.

Among his other big wins on Adda52 are Maverick and Whale. This is not his first Millions title, having last won it in December 2018. The player is highly skilled and will come as no surprise if he ships a few more big tournaments this month and the rest of the year.
The field was filled with regs hoping to convert their buy-ins into huge prizes. Top 24 places were being paid in the tournament. Siddarth Singhvi, regular online player and winner of last week’s Elite on Spartan was also playing in the Adda52 Millions under his pseudonym ‘badtameez_donk’ and finished deep at 6th and saw a pay-out of INR 97,325 to his name.
