And here is a quick summary of Wednesday majors…
Surpassing last week’s record-breaking field, here it is, once again, Destiny 13.0 INR 30 Lakhs GTD hosted on Spartan Poker. A total of 896 runners registered themselves after each one paid INR 5,500. The advertised guarantee was crushed to generate INR 44.80 Lakhs, later distributed among the top 70 finishers.
