The Spartan Poker always has exciting promotions and tournaments for their players and every month, they come out with new offerings. A couple of promotions which have been around for a while now are the Hot Leaderboard Challenge and the Cool Leaderboard Challenge, where players play through the month for a place on the leaderboard.
Points to these leaderboards are gathered by playing the various qualifying tournaments. For the Hot Leaderboard, you must play in the daily featured tournaments and these take place every evening, while the Cool Leaderboard tournaments are the mini version of these featured tournaments which takes place each afternoon.
We are well into the month of October now and we reported news of Rajat Sharma aka ‘Garammasala’ winning the Hot Leaderboard Challenge and taking away the top prize of INR 4 lakh. It was a brilliant battle there with Sharma having to battle with some of India’s top pros to win that promotion, but the Cool Leaderboard turned out to be no less exciting.
The promotion depended on performances in the qualifying tournaments between 1-30 September and the player who turned out to be the most consistent of all was ‘Ch0pUrNutZZ’, whose constant finishes in the money in these tournaments gave him the top spot for an additional prize of INR 1.2 lakh for winning the Cool Leaderboard for September.
The player is a regular on Spartan but he wished to stay anonymous after he took down his promotion. He had to withstand competition from many other top pros, including Anirban Das aka ‘pokernoob’. Incidentally, Das also finished second in the Hot Leaderboard Challenge for September. Here, he won INR 60,000 for second place.
