Charity Event by The Spartan Poker
The Spartan Poker is running its Spartan Super Series (SSS) 2017 Finale at the moment (11-17 December), featuring a number of tournaments over this week along with big prizes to be won including a Harley Davidson 750 cc motorcyle to the leaderboard topper. Hundreds of players will be vying for that top prize and of course scoring their share of the various big guarantee tourneys on schedule!
And speaking of big guarantees, today (15 Dec) will see the SSS feature an event known as 'The Elite', carrying an INR 30 lakh guaranteed prize pool event. Amin Rozani, MD of The Spartan Poker released a statement earlier about this particular SSS event being part of Spartan charity initiatives, "At The Spartan Poker, we have pledged all proceeds (tournament rake) from this tournament to be donated towards a charitable cause. So come to The Spartan Poker this evening to play in the 'Elite' and make your contribution to a worthy cause while enjoying an intense game of poker."
The Elite is a highroller event that takes place every Friday on TheSpartanPoker.com with a buy-in of INR 11,000. For this special SSS edition, the buy-in will be INR 27,500 and the new guaranteed prizepool is INR 30 lakhs so a minimum of INR 3 lakhs will definitely be raised for charity. For those who aren't aware, The Spartan Poker has always wanted to give back to society and help the less fortunate in any way possible.
In the past, they have been associated with charity events and campaigns, whether that means donating to NGOs involved in education for young children or towards flood relief during the Chennai Flood Relief efforts or its most recent tie-up with actress Ishita Sharma and the #MukkaMaar initiative which teaches martial arts to girls from under privileged families.
Spartan has always helped contribute towards the betterment of society hosting many charity events in the past, including the Freedom Charity Event for the Vasantharatna Foundation, where all proceeds were matched and donated to families of India's Armed Forces personnel.
So, when you register to play in The Elite tonight, remember that a small chunk of your buy-in is going to be part of a noble initiative. The tournament begins at 19:30 IST only at TheSpartanPoker.com!
