Organising and hosting one of the biggest online poker tournaments in the country takes more than just a good game format! After putting a lot of thought, not just into the format of the tournament, but also other aspects of it, ranging from, the varied buy – ins, that extended from as low as Rs. 550 to as high as Rs. 5500 with a GTD prize pool of 30 lacs that was up for grabs, the chance to own the prestigious ISOP bracelet which was a luxury Tag Heuer watch, to giving the winners of each of the six tournaments a chance to experience a live boxing match of one of India’s finest boxers, Vijender Singh and finally to end the event with a massive after party, all of this combined with the impeccable management of the entire series and the participation of some of the biggest names from the Indian Poker Industry, made the very first edition of India Series of Poker, hosted by Poker Ninja, a grand success!
For weeks after the event, the team received some positive feedback & suggestions from the participants. Setting a certain standard in the online tournaments space in India with their very first edition & keeping in mind the feedback from the players, the team at Poker Ninja decided that it was time to take this flagship tournament series of theirs, one step further and make it even more bigger, exciting & enthralling for the players, going into its 2nd edition. They wanted to provide a larger & better platform to all of its players along with adding more value to their series by giving the poker enthusiasts a chance to play in a live environment on an international level.
With this vision in mind, Poker Ninja now brings to you, the second edition of India Series of Poker, which is all set to travel to Prague, Europe, this February! Yes! You read that right!
