Another slow-paced Monday saw all the flagships plagued by the overlay fever. Poker players can, however, take consolation in the fact that Spartan Poker’s Ultimate Value Series (UVS) starts today, with PokerBaazi’s 2 Crore GTD Game Changer returning on September 16.

Here’s a recap of all the big winners from Monday!

The day’s biggest draw, the ₹10 Lakhs GTD ReCharge, logged in 494 participants, falling ₹12,000 short of meeting the proposed guarantee.
