Winners, Game Insights and Highlights: PPL Winter’18 – Day 2


Day 2 of the PPL Winter’18 Edition concluded last night on with events 6-10 being played out. Yet again, we witnessed massive fields of players taking to the felts, which in-turn saw some massive prize pools being generated. The biggie of Day 2 was the 30 LAC guaranteed event The Endeavour – which saw “akash_durr” take home a jaw-dropping first place payday of INR 6,75,000!

The PPL Winter’18 Leaderboard has started taking shape too, with 10 events already out of the way. Leading the way currently is “Killersam” with 1330 points, 4 cashes and 1 win.
