Rajesh Tallapaneni wins Lightning Leaderboard
The Spartan Poker, one of the most trusted and accomplished brands in the Indian poker industry comes up with some exciting promotion or event every month of the year. They’re well known for handing out huge cash prizes and exciting awards like luxury cars, sports bikes, premium watches, etc.
They also host the monthly leaderboard on their platform. The leaderboard is one such competition where luck and chance take a back seat. Only consistency and perseverance matter when it comes to leaderboard events, since it takes into account the player’s performance throughout the month.
Spartan hosted something called as the Cool and the Hot Leaderboards simultaneously every month. The Cool Leaderboard covered small to mid-stakes tournaments and the Hot Leaderboard had the bigger ones in its net. Both had a combined guaranteed prize pool of INR 13 Lakhs, but since the beginning of November, the Lightning Leaderboard is what is being hosted on Spartan. This leaderboard has a total guaranteed prize pool of INR 10 Lakhs.
The very first winner of the Lightning Leaderboard is Rajesh Tallapaneni who goes by the name of ‘THALAIVA AR’. He earned INR 4 Lakhs for finishing 1st in the leaderboard. The man would be elated beyond words. His efforts throughout the month were recognized by Spartan and for that he would be very happy.
Other known names to make it to the leaderboard were Rajat Sharma aka ‘Garammasala’ finishing 5th and cashing out INR 60K, Anirban Das aka ‘pokernoob’ with INR 35K cash money for coming 7th and Goonjan Mall aka ‘gmtesting’ at 9th with INR 15K.
There is something called as the BigWin on Spartan too. The BigWin, having a variety of luxury cars and bikes in its list of prizes, is also a leaderboard event but it only works for cash table games. So, you see, Spartan has everyone covered, be it cash table players, small to mid-stakes tournament players or large bankroll players.
