The biggest Tuesday draw on Spartan Poker, the ₹21 Lakhs GTD Mega Stack Millionaire Bubble, registered another successful run. The ₹3,300 entry buy-in tourney wrangled in 715 entries to collect ₹21.45 Lakhs in the prize pool. Last week, PokerGuru Ambassador Ratul Steves had won the Mega Stack title, and ‘betbetfold’ (anonymity requested) championed the tourney yesterday to collect ₹4.14 Lakhs. ‘guruji77’ secured the runner-up payout worth ₹2.61 Lakhs, and Parag ‘Persie’ Shah placed third for ₹1.87 Lakhs.

The mystery user ‘nairsne’ bubbled the tourney in 72nd place to win a ticket worth ₹5,500 to Day 1A of the upcoming The Millionaire (starts at 7 PM on May 27).
The other Tuesday marquee, the ₹8 Lakhs GTD The Race, garnered 656 entries, recording a ₹9.84 Lakhs prize pool.

PokerStars India’s Tuesday headliner, the Sixth Sense, ran with a reduced ₹5 Lakhs prize pool guarantee last night. A total of 285 contenders signed up for the bounty event, meaning that the tourney did well to generate a ₹5.70 Lakhs prize pool. Online reg Myron ‘khAAbib’ Pereira fired two bullets to eventually claim the title for ₹1.10 Lakhs (includes bounties), denying his heads-up rival, Umesh ‘dhondu.chilll’ Sharma (runner-up for ₹54,928) the bragging rights.

On May 11, he placed runner-up in Adda52’s The Mint for ₹2.50 Lakhs, and four days later, he won the Excalibur for ₹2.56 Lakhs.

PokerBaazi’s weekday flagships continue to bring in the big crowds, and Tuesday`s ₹12 Lakhs GTD The Endeavour attracted 431 entries, crushing the advertised guarantee by ₹3.08 Lakhs. The recent Sunday Special PKO runner-up Amit ‘quark’ Kaushik came out trumps to capture the title for ₹3.03 Lakhs, besting PokerGuru Ambassador Gokul ‘Nygma’ Raj (runner-up for ₹2.13 Lakhs) in heads-up play.
