As expected, the Thursday MTTs saw a significant improvement in turnouts compared to the Wednesday numbers. The next few days will only see the virtual temperatures rising as Spartan Poker`s (and partner sites BLITZPOKER and PokerHigh) 8.50 Crores GTD Summer Celebration Series commences its inaugural run today!

PokerGuru Ambassadors dominated the Thursday action, with the team taking down three flagship titles and posting two runner-up finishes along with a litany of deep runs! And leading the charge for PokerGuru Staking was PokerGuru Ambassador Ashish Ahuja, the #3 ranked player of the year, who added a whopping 8.01 Lakhs last night, crossing ₹11 Crores in tracked online winnings. He chopped two headline tournaments, Spartan Poker’s Thursday High Roller (2nd for 5.89 Lakhs) & PokerStars India’s Highroller (1st for 1.95 Lakhs) – emerging as the day`s top scorer!

Sunday’s Nano Highroller champion PokerGuru Ambassador Ankit Wadhawan was another breakout winner from the team as he took down Spartan Poker’s first-ever Thursday Highroller for 6.54 Lakhs.

PokerGuru Ambassador Mithun Mahesh completed the trio for PokerGuru Staking players who won a title last night, and his claim to fame was winning Adda52’s Godfather for 6.12 Lakhs. The #1 ranked player of the year, Young Gun Anuj Yadav, collected 3.62 Lakhs in second place.

Anirudh Reddy came out on top in PokerBaazi’s The Summit, picking up his fifth title of the year and a 4.55 Lakhs payday. Sunday`s #BB5 MoneyMaker champion Wilson Yomso settled for a runner-up payday worth 4.22 Lakhs, courtesy of a heads-up deal.

The ever-consistent Harsh Dembla added another title to his already glittering poker resume, winning Spartan Poker’s Trending Thursday for 3.64 Lakhs. He struck a heads-up deal with Apoorv Rajore (2nd for 3.21 Lakhs).

Kunal Yadav, Raksha Agarwal, Young Gun Devang Yadav, Prabhat Paliya, Punya Behera, Karan Sitlani, Abhishek Sonu, Armaan Kochhar, Neeraj Bajaj, Aryaman Arora, and Rudramani Pokhrel won the other Thursday marquees.

Here are the Thursday highlights!
