The PokerStars India loyalist Devang Mehta made the Monday headlines as he took down Battle Royale for 1.14 Lakhs.

Spartan Poker`s ReCharge and Deepstack returned for their usual Monday run, but the budget players had reasons to rejoice with another edition of the Ultimate Value Series (UVS) getting underway.

The 8 PM slotted ReCharge brought in 383 runners, and with each of them ponying up ₹2,200 to enter, the event experienced an ₹86,000 overlay shortfall. Archit ‘Archit789′ Saraogi cut his way to the top and chopped the title three-way for ₹1.60 Lakhs, picking up his second title of the year. Peush ‘Daniel0617’ Singhvi (2nd for ₹1.21 Lakhs) and Aditya ‘LeoBaazoka’ Pandita (3rd for ₹1.05 Lakhs) banked the other top prizes, courtesy of the deal.
