For those of you suffering from the IOPC hangover, we have good news! Spartan Poker’s Final Table Series (FTS) is heading your way in March for a 10-day run! The FTS has traditionally been a follow-on series to the IOPC. Sure enough, following the footsteps of a guarantee-crushing 12th IOPC edition, the hugely popular FTS is returning with a bang.
Bigger than all the past FTS editions, FTS 4.0 will have the best poker players in the country vying for a share of ₹13 Crores in guaranteed prizes across 41 events from March 4 to 13.
There`s a lot more to play for this time around as the series comes laden with 11 more events as compared to FTS 3.0, and the prize pool guarantee has correspondingly been hiked by ₹1 Crore.
The India Poker Championship is the longest-running live tournament brand in the country. It has built a reputation for hosting some of the biggest and grandest poker tournaments in the country, and the FTS is one of its flagship online MTT properties. Launched in November 2020, the FTS was a trendsetter for the industry as it was the first one to introduce the concept of live-streaming of the final table of its marquee events.
Some of you might be disappointed to hear FTS 4.0 will not have the final tables live-streamed. However, the ‘Final Table’ USP will be very much alive as anyone who final tables any of the FTS events will collect points towards the FTS Leaderboard. There`s a jaw-dropping ₹30 Lakhs in leaderboard prizes to be won.
The Master Table, a well-received concept at the earlier FTS editions, will also be returning at FTS 4.0. The winners of all the 8 PM marquees, the FTS Supreme, and the FTS Main Event champion will converge for The Master Table on March 14 (9 PM). The ₹10 Lakhs prize pool will be distributed among the top three finishers, with the eventual champion banking ₹5 Lakhs.
If you want to grab free tickets to the series and are fond of playing cash games, then you’ll love the FTS-special cash game offering, Cash Fiesta – FTS Edition. An adaptation of Spartan Poker’s Game of Tickets (GOT), the Cash Fiesta makes a month-long run from February 14 to March 13. There are FTS tickets worth ₹4 Lakhs. Plus, ₹4 Lakhs in Cash Bonus along with other bumper prizes up for grabs for cash game players.
As always, the FTS 4.0 will have a packed schedule of Mega Satellites kicking off tomorrow i.e. February 19, with tickets worth ₹20 Lakhs-plus up for grabs. More information on the satellites and deposit offers will be updated here shortly.

FTS – A Brief History
Final Table Series was launched during the pandemic in November 2020 to give players the experience of playing a live tournament in an online avatar. The well-curated structures and massive value has made the Final Table Series one of the most awaited MTT events in the country.

Past winners of the FTS Main Event include Arjun Pasricha (Won FTS 1.0 Main Event for ₹16.44 Lakhs), Young Gun Siddharth Karia (Won FTS 2.0 Main Event for ₹32.26 Lakhs), and PokerGuru Ambassador Ankit Wadhawan (Won FTS 3.0 Main Event for ₹33 Lakhs).

Bigger, better, bolder – these words best imbibe the spirit of Spartan Poker‘s constant drive to deliver the most attractive MTT’s in the country! Two weeks after the online poker operator closed out a record-breaking 11th edition of the India Online Poker Championship (IOPC), the online site has finally unveiled details of the third edition of its extremely popular Final Table Series (FTS)!
The series that made popular the trend of live-streaming final table action is coming back in its biggest-ever avatar for the third edition. FTS 3.0 will be charting a 10-day run from September 10 to 19 and guarantees a bigger-than-before ₹12 Crores in prize money across 30 tournaments! And just like the previous two series, the winner of the ₹2 Crores GTD FTS Main Event will walk away with a Gold Medallion with diamond studs, a certificate, and a hamper!
The FTS was conceptualized as an online event that provides players the same experience as live poker tournaments. The site has been careful in curating the tournament structures of the FTS marques, and this is one of the USP of the FTS.
The series features 11 marquee tourneys this time. The final table of 10 of these marquees, except the ₹1 Crore GTD FTS The Feast, will be live-streamed on YouTube, Facebook, and other 10 reputed platforms, including the PokerGuru Facebook page, with commentary from international poker pros Kevin Macphee and Sam Razavi.

Final Table Series 3.0: All You Need to Know
The FTS 3.0, slated to run from September 10 to 19, features 30 events, boasting ₹12 Crores in guaranteed prizes. Given that the inaugural edition of the FTS had offered ₹8 Crores in GTDs, which was boosted to ₹10 Crores during FTS 2.0, it’s evident Spartan Poker has kept to the trend of going bigger and better with its tournament offerings.
One glance at the FTS 3.0 schedule reveals that the series offers something for everyone. With buy-ins ranging from ₹880 to ₹88,000, players from different stakes can participate in the series.
The salient feature of the FTS has always been the live streaming of the final table of the series’ marquees, with commentary from some of the most renowned names in the business.
Let’s talk about the marquees first. The FTS 3.0 has 11 marquees, but only 10 of them will be live-streamed on YouTube and multiple other platforms. The FTS The Feast will play down to a champion on the same day as the FTS Main Event. Therefore, the final table of the former will not be live-streamed.
Coming to the commentators, the dynamic duo of two-time WSOP bracelet winner Kevin Macphee and UK-based poker pro Sam Razavi will be returning to their commentating duties at the FTS for the third time. They will be joined by IPC Director Peter Abraham as the host.
FTS 3.0 Main Event & Other Featured Tourneys
The magnum opus of the series, as always, will be the ₹2 Crores GTD FTS Main Event. The last two editions crowned champions in Arjun Pasricha (Won FTS 1.0 Main Event for ₹16.44 Lakhs) and Young Gun Siddharth Karia (Won FTS 2.0 Main Event for ₹32.26 Lakhs).
Just like its predecessors, the ₹35,000 buy-in event will host two starting flights.
- Day 1A – September 19 at 12 PM
- Day 1B – September 19 at 4 PM
Day 2 will commence at 10 PM on the same day.
The other marquees at the series that players should watch out for are:
> FTS#2 Friday Special ₹50 Lakhs GTD
> FTS#5 Saturday Special ₹40 Lakhs GTD
> FTS#8 Sunday Special ₹60 Lakhs GTD
> FTS#11 Double Stack ₹25 Lakhs GTD
> FTS#14 Challenger ₹40 Lakhs GTD
> FTS#17 Big Game ₹80 Lakhs GTD

> FTS#23 High Roller – 6 Max ₹1 Crore GTD
> FTS#26 Head Hunter ₹40 Lakhs GTD
> FTS#32 The Feast ₹1 Crore GTD
The FTS 3.0 Main Event winner will not only bag a thumping cash prize but will also receive a Gold Medallion. The winners of the other FTS feature events will also win a Gold Medallion along with certificates and hampers. Winners of the other FTS side events will receive Silver Medallions, certificates, and hampers.

Are you an Indiana Jones fan with a penchant for an out-of-the-world game experience? Does the idea of going on a treasure hunt, a mission where battles await you through different chapters, to explore and conquer uncharted territories sound intriguing? If you answered any of the above in the affirmative, you are going to love the 11th edition of the India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) coming up on Spartan Poker from July 11 to August 1.
Arguably the frontrunner in terms of dishing out the biggest guarantees and the best tournament offerings, Spartan Poker has established its flagship live tournament offering, the India Poker Championship (IPC), onto the virtual felts exceptionally well. The site has traditionally hosted the IOPC twice every year, in January and July. Over the years, we have seen the series become the cornerstone of tournament offerings in the country. The last IOPC edition ran from January 14 to 31, with 118 events dishing out ₹28 Crores in guaranteed prizes.
We would have expected the IOPC to come back bigger, and it has not disappointed. The upcoming IOPC – July 2021 will be making a longer 22-day-run with a schedule of 140 events awarding a never-before-seen ₹30 Crores in prize pool guarantees. That is ₹2 Crore more than the IOPC January edition, becoming not only the biggest IOPC edition to date but also the most massive guaranteed tournament series to be hosted in India ever!

In the PokerGuru feature ‘This Week in Poker,’ we bring you the weekly roundup of the most significant online scores by Indian MTT players and the top stories from both the live and online poker circuit.
Here are this week’s top stories!
As the months crossed over from April to May this week, online poker has continued to be the driving force, with live poker now well and truly on the back seat given the current circumstances. In fact, the Goa government that had announced a weekend lockdown from April 29 to May 3 has also extended the lockdown till May 10.
With the third wave of the COVID-19 looking inevitable at this point, India reported a record 3,780 deaths in the last 24 hours, the highest daily toll since the pandemic began. Over 900 deaths were from Maharashtra, while Delhi and Uttar Pradesh reported 338 and 351 casualties. At least 13 states are reporting over 100 deaths a day.
Coming back to the virtual action, things have been steadily heating up, with the daily marquees now consistently crushing their advertised guarantees. Spartan Poker’s fifth and final The Millionaire of April was the featured tourney of the week. The event logged in 2,206 entries, and just like the weeks before, posted a guarantee-smashing ₹1.10 Crores prize pool. The former Full House champion Devrat Singh won his career-first Millionaire title on Sunday for a whooping ₹16.10 Lakhs (includes his 48th place finish for ₹29,339). He chopped the top prize heads-up with Kartikeya Yadav (runner-up for ₹12.62 Lakhs). For his splendid performance, Singh is our “PokerGuru Star of the Week!”
Siddhanth Kripalani, Rajat Mahajan, PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh, and Arjun Pasricha were the other notables who raked in seven figures in MTT winnings.
May is already off to a flying start, with all the major sites launching exciting promotions. Spartan Poker’s much-awaited The Millionaire Series 2.0 commenced on May 3. Promising ₹5 Crores in guaranteed prizes, the series will run till May 9.
India’s most trusted online poker site, PokerBaazi, recently rolled out a brand-new and much-improved poker app. Simultaneously, the site also launched its biggest cash game festival to date, the Daily Cash Smash Extreme. Over 10 days, PokerBaazi will be giving out ₹10 Lakhs every day across different Leaderboard sprints, guaranteeing a whopping ₹1 Crore in prizes.
NostraPoker, a subsidiary of NostraGamus, has also announced its “High Rollers Milestone” from May 3 to June 21. The site’s latest leaderboard race is open to both NLH and PLO players, offering them a chance to win up to ₹5 Lakhs by playing at the high stakes cash tables.
Fast-growing poker site, Khelo365 also has lucrative offers running in May, namely the Sixers Daily Cash Back Omaha6 and the Lucky Draw deposit offer.
Asia’s largest online poker room, Natural8, recently announced that it will be teaming up with GGPoker to host the WSOP Circuit online festival from May 1 to 30. Moreover, the site will be giving away over $7.50 Million in other promotions in May.
BLITZPOKER became one of the first poker operators to host a special tournament to aid India’s COVID-19 relief efforts. The brand-new ‘BLITZ COVID RELIEF’ tournament will run from May 8 to 14 at 10:30 PM daily. The ₹249 entry buy-in event offers a ₹75,000 prize pool guarantee. The site will donate twice the rake generated from this tournament, with all the proceeds going to the Hemkunt Foundation to provide oxygen cylinders and ventilators to those in need.
In other news, India’s first pure-play gaming firm to be publicly listed, Nazara Technologies Ltd, has granted in-principle approval to its subsidiary, Halaplay Technologies Pvt Ltd, to raise ₹18.02 Crores from identified investors.
Moving on to live poker, the WPT Seminole Hard Rock (SHR) Poker Showdown created quite the furor among the US-based poker players. The stop is almost over with just the Main Event left to crown a champion. The Main Event registered a whopping 2,482 entries, resulting in a record-smashing $7.95 Million prize pool. The event was halted after the six-player final table, comprising chip leader Sonny Franco, Brekstyn Schutten, Steven Snyder, Ken Aldridge, Albert Calderon, and Viet Vo was formed. The six finalists will return on May 18 at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas to play down to a champion.
