With 18 days, six unique formats and a prize-pool of ₹25 Crore, Spartan Poker is hosting its second tournament of the year
While a great deal of 2022 was spent chasing deadlines and attending boardroom meetings, the holiday season always brings the hope of making more time for hobbies, learning a new skill and ticking things off our bucket list. In a bid to elevate the year-end festivities and start the new year on a high, Spartan Poker has announced an exciting tournament. The online poker platform which has been known to implement interesting ways to make the world’s most popular skill-based game more engaging and exciting for India’s poker aficionados has an upcoming Legend Poker Series tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of ₹25 Crore.
- For the uninitiated, Spartan Poker is India’s biggest and most premium online poker platform, with over 2.5 million players across the country ever since it was founded in 2014. Earlier this year, Spartan Poker’s flagship tournament series—the India Online Poker Championship—took the entire Indian poker space by storm by offering a colossal prize pool of ₹33 Crore. Following that legacy, Spartan Poker is now hosting an 18-day tournament across six unique formats of gameplay for the second time this year on their platform. Excited much? Scroll ahead as we break down everything you need to know about the tournament and how to participate:
- For the first time in the history of Indian online poker, six dedicated leaderboards for six unique formats of the game worth ₹75 lakh with the top 10 paid places for each. With buy-ins starting from just ₹550 every low stake player stands a chance to find a place in the 6 unique leaderboards.
- It includes qualifiers worth ₹1.94 Crore. If you are someone who does not have the bankroll for bigger tournaments at the Legend Poker Series, you can easily make your way to the bigger events and aim to be the original legend of online poker felts.
- Not to forget, they also offer heaps of mega qualifiers to storm your way into Marquee and Showdown events.
- With freerolls worth ₹15 lakh, you can now play without paying any buy-ins.
- Another ideal way in which high stake players can make it to the Legend Poker Series virtual felts is through the Game of Tickets Legends edition. They can do so by playing at their favourite cash tables and generating maximum points from 6th November to 10th December. Moreover, the player who collects a total of 7,500 points will get the first bullet back of Legend Poker Series tickets worth ₹8 lakh and more.
- With 3 weeks of top-notch non-stop online poker action, the top ranker will be honoured with a one-of-its-kind gold emblazoned legend belt.
Giving some insight into the tournament, Spartan Poker’s co-founder and CEO Amin Rozani says, “It is exciting to witness the rapid evolution of poker in India over the past few years. The game is brimming with diverse genres of players who enjoy the thrill of multiple formats. The inception of the Legend Poker Series is a testament to our continuous endeavour of rewarding all styles of poker players. During the competition, six Legends of Tomorrow will emerge across six unique formats of gameplay with their respective leaderboards.
