We’ve lived in a democratically governed, independent nation for 75 years. If that’s reason enough to celebrate, Pocket52 has added to the patriotic feel for poker players with a bevy of giveaways. The most notable of them is the fifth edition of its popular Pocket Poker Championship (PPC), which began on Sunday, with a mouth-watering ₹1.61 Crores guaranteed across 49 tournaments.
As the tournament action runs hot on the site, stepping up the ante even more is THE PATRIOT leaderboard race. Running alongside the PPC, this leaderboard will bring out the poker loyalist in you, offering big prizes to the most consistent players across select PPC flagships!
THE PATRIOT Leaderboard has a very enticing ₹7 Lakhs in prizes up for grabs – a solid ₹2 Lakhs more than the previous PPC June edition. The leaderboard went live at midnight on August 15 and will track PPC participants who cash in the specified 12 PPC tourneys till 11.59 PM on August 21.
THE PATRIOT Leaderboard Prizes
The buy-ins of the eligible PPC tournaments that count towards THE PATRIOT leaderboard start as little as ₹165.
The biggest showstopper of the series is the ₹4,400 buy-in, The Bracelet Main Event – which has a whopping ₹40 Lakhs prize pool guarantee, ₹15 Lakhs more than the last PPC in June.
Here are PPC marquees awarding TLB points for THE PATRIOT leaderboard and their timings.
