Spartan Poker’s 18-day long series – IOPC that gave away a whopping 25 Crore in the guaranteed prize pool concluded last Sunday. One of the highlights of the series was the ME boasting INR 3 Crore GTD. The 3 Crore GTD ME saw an impressive response from poker players across the country with 4075 entries.
Today, we have the IOPC July Edition Main Event winner Harshit Sanghi aka “HeroCaller” with us in our chat session. Harshit outlasted Kunal Bhatia and crushed the FT for 47.33 Lac and also clinched the 18K Gold IOPC Crown. Unlike most of us, Harshit prefers to give the point answers.

Thank you. The experience was very good. A massive field of players from all over India was playing. It was really good.
