The Spartan Poker, India’s leading and most trustworthy poker gaming platform, presented yet another millionaire this Sunday. The Millionaire tournament is a monthly activity, which gives players a chance to win a large sum, turning them into Millionaires. This July, a special edition of the Millionaire tournament took place during the flagship India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) where the prize-pool was INR 1 Crore. The buy In for the tournament was INR 7700 and began at 4:30 PM IST on Sunday, 15th
This Sunday saw Nikhil Ramesh emerging as the winner of the millionaire event. Nikhil won a sum of INR 25 Lakhs. Ramesh has been on a hot run in the last couple of days, having taken down IOPC Event #3 a couple of days back and becoming the second person to win two titles in this edition of the IOPC. Though, he had to struggle himself through the 1298 entries to be the star of the tournament. The tournament saw a neck-to-neck competition among players for the title of The Millionaire.
The runner up of the tournament, Hemanth Motepalli also took home INR 15 Lakhs. Ironically Hemanth goes by the username ‘Bluffwentwrong’; well his bluffs seem to have gone all the right ways this time.
Speaking about the occasion Nikhil Ramesh said, “The journey was tremendously tiring but very rewarding. I ran good, stuck to the charts, tried not to flip often and played good poker. I had a decent chip stack going into the final 4 and figured I could easily win from there. I was so wrong about this and had to play for the next 2-3 hours to finally ship it. I didn't have high hopes and just concentrated on my game.”
Speaking about the championship and the tournament, Amin Rozani, Co-founder and MD of The Spartan Poker said, “As the leading platform in the country with one of the highest number of registered users, we are glad when our players win big and feel rewarded. The India Online Poker Championship’s special edition Millionaire tournament is the highest prize-pool activity among our offerings, and seeing such a high participation is always encouraging for us. We are glad to offer our players more such opportunities to become Millionaires overnight.”
The prize pool allowed the top 120 players to be paid out a minimum cash prize of INR 20,000.
