Thursday was a day for PokerBaazi’s The Summit tournament, Spartan Poker’s Trending Thursday & Monster Stack, and Adda52’s Godfather. All these four events are among the highly anticipated tourneys on their respective poker platforms and most of them had a minimum of 500 entries. Yes, as we get closer to the weekend, the competitions set ablaze on virtual poker felts. 

Both the tourneys on Spartan Poker were shipped by well-known grinders while PokerBaazi’s Summit was conquered by a mystery player. Adda52’s marquee Godfather tournament was shipped by lawyer turned poker pro Ashish Ahuja

These are just the headliners, let’s dive into the round-up to get a clear idea of who stood where this Thursday.
