    Amin Rozani, founder of Spartan Poker, said that IPC is striving to become the best poker championship.
    The ongoing India Poker Championship is creating history with a prize pool of more than Rs 5 crore.

    One of the most-exhilarating and nerve-wracking poker events of 2020 – IPC (India Poker Championship) is all set to take place on January 14-19 at the Big Daddy Casino in Goa.

    Organised by Spartan Poker, the winner will be crowned as the India Poker Champion and win an IPC-engraved luxury watch worth Rs 6.67 lakh. The champion will get a sponsorship of Rs 20 lakh to play nationally and will be featured on the cover of a popular magazine.

    IPC has always focused on acknowledging and appreciating the talent of its players and hence it’s the only poker company to host the third edition of the IPC Awards.

    Not just this, but it has always worked towards making poker playing the best experience for its players. Sameer Rattonsey, co-owner of Spartan Poker, has won many championships and is one of the past IPC winners.

He won a staggering Rs 49.25 lakh. Amin Rozani, founder of Spartan Poker, said, “Having witnessed the success and overwhelming response to IPC events, we will work harder each year to exceed ourselves and make IPC the best poker championship in the world.”
