Spartan Poker’s Tuesday feature tournament Mega Stack INR 17 Lakhs GTD began yesterday at 8 pm and is played out on the platform which unfailingly attracts the top talents of the Indian poker community as well as several newcomers who are looking to make big.
This tournament saw a massive number of 537 entries who registered for a buy-in of INR 3,300. Eventually, the prize pool was shared among the top 47 places who received a paycheck of a minimum amount of INR 9,690. After 7 hours of intense grinding, the day saw the upcoming player Thirtha Patil under the username ‘Taxed’ taking home a pretty healthy sum of the prize money.
With blinds at 40,000/80,000 ante 9,000 in Level #47, 6 players were a part of the final hand. Patil (Th 7d) was leading with 2.6 million chips followed by Kanishka Samant aka ‘Wildflower’ (Js 9c) with 2.3 million chips. Pre-flop, ‘Drifter2’ (Kc 7c) quickly put his entire stack of 554k chips into the middle. Eventually, the remaining players fold and ‘Drifter2’ wins the pot. Remaining players decide to make a deal and as a result of holding the biggest stack, Patil emerged as the champion of the night.
