The biggest Thursday attraction was Spartan Poker’s The Big Deal that made a comeback after a four-week gap.

PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh took down PokerStars India’s Highroller for the second consecutive week for 2.10 Lakhs after besting stablemate Rony Chowdhury (2nd for 1.63 Lakhs) in the heads-up play!
