The first month of 2019 is not even halfway through and we already have witnessed a huge tournament hosted by The Spartan Poker – the Two of a Kind – which awarded INR 15 Lakhs each to the two winners. Spartan’s India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) is also to set to begin this week, scheduled between 11-20 January, with an overwhelming INR 8.5+ Crores in total guaranteed cash prizes. This IOPC is going to be the biggest online series ever hosted in India.
Along with the exciting line-up of events to be seen in the IOPC schedule such as the INR 1 Crore GTD Millionaire, INR 1.5 Crore GTD Main Event, etc. there will also be a leaderboard hosted for the duration of the series.
The IOPC Leaderboard will give away a total of INR 30 Lakhs in prizes to the top 10 players ranked. The player to top the leaderboard will get a luxurious new Skoda Octavia. Earning a car like this is a big deal in itself but earning it in the first month of this new year begs added celebration and opening a few champagne bottles too!
The second finisher in the leaderboard will earn INR 3,50,000 as his prize and the 3rd INR 2,30,000. Rest of the cash prizes range from INR 1.5 lakhs for the 4th to INR 35K being awarded to the 10th. Points accumulated during the IOPC events will only be counted for the IOPC Leaderboard ranking.
The previous edition of the IOPC, held in July 2018, offered a brand-new Jeep Compass to its Leaderboard topper Pulkit Goyal. He later expressed his happiness, saying, “It feels emphatic. Hard work paid off. I’m really happy.” Surely, he had the best day of his life that day, since topping a leaderboard doesn’t involve any luck but pure skill to grind for hours and days at a stretch. It’s a litmus test for a player’s skills, since the luck factors are taken out of the equation straight away.
The upcoming IOPC, touted to be the biggest ever online series, will be underway in a few days on Spartan and users can sign up immediately and avail exciting bonuses on their platform. Keep reading GutshotMagazine.com for more such promotional news and for general poker news from around the world.
