The next 18 days promise to unleash electrifying action on Spartan Poker, with the site all geared up to host the massive ₹30 Crores GTD IOPC starting tomorrow! In the lead-up to the flagship series, the site ran the Mega Stack (Millionaire Bubble) yesterday that returned with an increased ₹18 Lakhs prize pool guarantee. The 8 PM event saw 688 players ponying up ₹3,300 to enter, generating a ₹20.64 Lakhs prize pool. Last week’s Wednesday Vibes winner Kanav ‘slickooo’ Parwal clinched his second title of the year and a ₹3.35 Lakhs payday after striking a heads-up deal with Sanket ‘BANK$Y’ Arora (2nd for ₹3.14 Lakhs).
