Spartan Poker`s ₹8.50 Lakhs GTD ReCharge had the biggest prize pool guarantee on offer across sites. Considering the sluggish MTT action we`ve seen this past week, the ₹2,200 buy-in event fared relatively well, with 415 hopefuls signing up to play, filling in a marginal ₹20,000 in overlays. It took Young Gun Siddhanth ‘PluRibu$’ Kripalani, one of 2022`s biggest winners, under eight hours to take down the event for ₹1.70 Lakhs. Another Young Gun, Karan ‘Majestic’ Radia, placed runner-up for ₹1.13 Lakhs.
