As always, it was a relatively slow start to the week, with most of the Monday flagships getting hammered for overlays. The day also marked the start of two micro-stakes series – the ₹83 Lakhs GTD Ultimate Value Series (UVS) on Spartan Poker/BLITZPOKER and Adda52’s ₹1 Crore GTD Nano Poker Series (NPS).

Here`s a quick recap of the day`s highlights!

 

Spartan Poker

With the Millionaire Series now done and dusted, Spartan Poker has brought back its regular schedule. This meant that the ₹12 Lakhs GTD ReCharge headlined the Monday primetime action on the site. The ₹2,200 entry buy-in tourney pulled in 558 entries (273 unique, 96 re-entries, and 189 rebuys), overlaying ₹84,000. Peter ‘Sigmund’ Nazareth was the last player standing in the tourney and won ₹1.70 Lakhs after striking a four-way deal with Shiva ‘psilocybin7’ Balram (runner-up for ₹1.39 Lakhs), ‘anzzzz’ (3rd for ₹1.36 Lakhs), and ‘Jovi’ (4th for ₹1.28 Lakhs).

For Nazareth, this was his second-best finish on the site, improving his recorded earnings on Spartan Poker to ₹53.22 Lakhs.

The other Monday night marquee on Spartan Poker, the ₹5.5 Lakhs GTD Flash, obliterated its advertised guarantee as 569 runners helped collect ₹5.69 Lakhs in prize money. Starting out at 9.30 PM, the tourney took almost six hours to come to a close, with Harshit ‘harshitkumar17’ Kumar championing the tourney to win ₹93,825. He cut a three-way deal with ‘PokerQueen1911’ (runner-up for ₹72,303) and Abhijeet ‘knot_snudtke’ Kumar (3rd for ₹67,153).

The featured tourney on Day 1 of the Ultimate Value Series, the ₹4.25 lakhs GTD UVS #6 Monster Stack, saw Yasir Anwar ‘xTyrionLannisterx’ Siddiqui navigating his way to the top to win ₹80,142. Vikrant ‘King Leonidas’ Dangle finished runner-up for ₹59,889.
