The MTT rush is back with Spartan Poker`s (and partner sites BLITZPOKER & PokerHigh) biggest-ever The Millionaire Series now in full swing. Day 2 of the flagship series had three Millionaire-branded events on the schedule, making for an electrifying start to the week.

MPL Poker brand ambassador Dhaval Mudgal was the Monday trailblazer! The long-time poker pro became the fourth Millionaire to emerge at the ongoing series as he won the Millionaire Series #7 – Monday Millionaire for 11.56 Lakhs, posting his second-best career finish. The user ‘sariyaa’ finished runner-up for 7.12 Lakhs.

Sanket Arora (Won The Millionaire Series #6 for 1.55 Lakhs) and Anil Arora (Won The Millionaire Series #8 for 1.53 Lakhs) won the other Millionaire Series titles on Monday.

PokerGuru Ambassador Deepankur Gupta has been on a tear recently and picked up his first title of the year last night. Improving upon his runner-up finish in Millionaire Series #5 – Double Millionaire the day before, Gupta took down PokerBaazi’s The Big Show for 2.12 Lakhs, pulling into an early lead in the weekly leaderboard standings. He chopped the title heads-up with this week`s Sunday Special PKO winner Atishay Samuel (2nd for 2.03 Lakhs).

Tanmay Benara was the last player standing in Adda52`s Iron Man and won the title for 1.69 lakhs, ending a two-month-long title drought. He chopped the title heads-up with Sunil Arora (2nd for 1.66 Lakhs).

PokerBaazi reg Rajneesh Thakur came out on top in PokerBaazi`s SPRINT, netting 1.57 Lakhs, and Aditya Kulkarni championed the Daily SPRINT for 1.17 Lakhs.

Aditya Singh walked away with PokerStars India’s Battle Royale title and 1.20 Lakhs in prize money. Gopal Bajaj collected 42,381 in second place.

Pradip Ghosh, Clinton Tavares, Shivam Shukla, Mohak Kapoor, Yogesh Choudhary, Piyush Nanda, Swithin Francis, and Vikash Kumar won the other Monday marquees.
