It was an explosive January on Spartan Poker, with the 10th Edition of the India Online Poker Champion (IOPC) dominating the headlines. While the leading online poker site is mid-way through its ‘FABruary’ promotions, the brand has already announced its plans for an electrifying March by revealing the details of the second edition of the Final Table Series (FTS).

Sporting a jaw-dropping ₹10 Crores in prize pool guarantees, the series will run from March 7 to 14, comprising 25 tournaments! Like its predecessor, the eight-day series will host eight featured events that will be live-streamed across multiple platforms. And just like last time, FTS 2.0 will also be featuring a wide range of national and internationally renowned commentators.

The most glorious part of the series, the ₹2 Crores GTD FTS Main Event, takes place on March 14. The ultimate champion will not only take home a colossal top prize but will also receive an 18K diamond-studded Gold Medallion, customized Game Face, and a fantastic hamper!

The FTS Series: A Class Apart

The FTS 1.0 series that ran from November 16 to 23 last year became a trendsetter for the industry. The series, promising ₹8 Crores in prize pool guarantees, was the first-of-its-kind on Spartan Poker with live-streaming of the final table of its featured events. The series had also brought together a fantastic panel of commentators from UK’s top poker pro, Sam Razavi, to two-time WSOP bracelet winner Kevin Macphee, India’s poker mom Radhika Shankar, and funny man Ramesh Thotapalli, along with guest commentator, poker diva cum world-renowned poker commentator Maria Ho.

So, not only was it entertaining for the poker community as a whole, but educational for poker enthusiasts trying to learn the tricks of the trade. This trend of live-streaming final tables seems to have caught on, with the recently concluded IOPC also streaming several of its marquee tourneys.

While the FTS 2.0 commentators are yet to be announced, we are sure it’ll be an eclectic mix of talented and entertaining personalities who will make the FTS experience even better!
