The second edition of the India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) is right around the corner, and will offer some hefty guarantees as well as other prizes. The 10-day series, organized by The Spartan Poker, will feature 55 events and is scheduled to run from July 13 through July 22. Tournament organizers expect this second edition to be even bigger than the first, and have put up a guaranteed prize pool of over $1 million.
There are several events on tap with impressive prize pools. On July 15, the IOPC will hold ‘The Millionaire,’ which offers a guarantee of over $145,000, followed by a Super High Roller (SHR) and an Elite High Roller (EHR). The SHR will begin on July 19 and offers a guarantee of about $72,000 and the EHR will kick off the next day, providing a $58,000 guarantee. The Main Event will get underway on July 22 and offers a prize pool of more than $145,000.
There are additional prizes available. A leaderboard will be kept during the tournament, and over $43,000 is up for grabs to the highest finishers. Additionally, the leader at the end of the series will take home a Jeep Compass. The second-place finisher will win a Bajaj Dominar 400 motorcycle. A Bose sound bar will go to the third-place winner, and an Apple Series 3 watch to the fourth-place finalist.
Amin Rozani, co-founder of The Spartan Poker, said, “The IOPC tournament is a platform where Poker players from across the globe can prove their mettle in the sport. With a participation of over 100k across tournaments every month and the rising awareness for Poker, we look forward to an exciting tournament with several edge-of-the-seat moments.”
The tournament will kick off shortly after the possible end to a feud between Rozani and Rajat Agarwal, the other Spartan Poker co-founder who is no longer involved in the company’s operations. The two have been caught up in a legal battle that dates back to the middle of 2016, but looks to finally be drawing to a close with Rozani emerging as the victor.
