The ₹30 Lakhs GTD WCS #15 Big Deal was the biggest guaranteed event of the day, not just on Spartan Poker but across sites. The ₹22,000 buy-in high roller logged in a reg-laden 175-entry field that helped collect a hefty ₹35 Lakhs prize pool. And not surprisingly, the three-time The Millionaire champion Young Gun Anuj ‘tittooTauji’ Yadav walked away with the title – his fifth in under two weeks – and a ₹8.81 Lakhs payday. ‘Optimist’ came second for ₹5.95 Lakhs.
