Tournament-centric brand Spartan Poker is always looking to bring its users bigger and better offers. In that spirit, the industry leader recently announced the comeback of its most popular online series, the India Online Poker Championship (IOPC). Starting from July 17, the IOPC July edition will be bigger than ever before! Comprising of 113 tournaments, the 19-day long series, that is expected to conclude on August 2, boasts of a colossal ₹25 Crores in prize pool guarantees!
Besides the ₹25 Crores in guaranteed prizes, Spartan Poker will, for the first time, this IOPC, be giving away a glorious and majestic Crown! The ‘Battle for the Crown’ will go down to the wire, culminating with the Millionaire Main Event. The winner of the Millionaire Main Event will literally be crowned champion of the IOPC!
Since its inception in 2015, Spartan Poker has been consistently rolling out the most attractive and lucrative promotions that have helped steer the brand to become one of the top industry operators.
Some of the most well-known of the site’s flagships include The Millionaire franchise, the Spartan Value Series (SVS), the Ultimate Value Series (UVS), and many more. In fact, starting Monday, the week-long Grand Poker Series (GPS), offering more than ₹5 Crores in prize pool guarantees, kicked off and is expected to run till June 7.
Despite having so many fabulous and successful ventures under its belt, Spartan Poker’s pièce de résistance has always been the IOPC. Launched in October 2016, the first-ever IOPC had featured a total prize pool of ₹8.6 Lakhs. Nearly four years down the line, the series is as well-loved as it was then. Reflecting on the massive growth both for the site and the industry, the IOPC is coming back with a never-before-seen ₹25 Crores in guarantees!
This will be the second IOPC edition of the year. Spartan Poker welcomed 2020 in style by hosting the IOPC January Edition that ran from January 24 to February 9 and offered more than ₹16 Crores in prize pool guarantees.
Historically, the IOPC has always allowed players to bank the biggest of scores. In 2019, online phenom Srihari Bang had posted the single-biggest online score of ₹48.56 Lakhs after shipping The Millionaire ₹2 Crores GTD which was a part of the IOPC July edition. Anurag Srivastava took hold of the title of the biggest Millionaire winner to date from Bang after he took down the IOPC Millionaire Main Event ₹3 Crores GTD on February 9 for a jaw-dropping ₹59.33 Lakhs!
With the IOPC returning for a second 2020 edition, players have a lot to look forward to. While the complete schedule is yet to be released, we can still give you a glimpse of some of the big-ticket events on the roster.
There are 113 events on the schedule with the tourney buy-in ranging from ₹550 to ₹1.10 Lakhs.
Three Millionaire tourneys form part of the IOPC line-up and are expected to grace the three Sundays during the series.
– Millionaire United ₹5 Crore GTD
– Millionaire Legends ₹2 Crore GTD
– Millionaire Main Event ₹5 Crore GTD
In addition to these events, there is also a Super High Roller ₹1 Crore GTD slated for July 30.
Additionally, the IOPC July edition will also be awarding leaderboard prizes worth a whopping ₹1 Crore – the most ever awarded at an online series in the country!
It’s going to be an exciting July, so stay tuned to PokerGuru for more updates on the upcoming IOPC!
