The grand series will feature over 50 Indian poker players and will be sponsored by PokerBaazi.com- the most trusted online poker website in India
The country’s most prestigious poker series, The Indian Poker Series (TIPS) is all set for a grand debut at Europe’s biggest Poker room, the King’s Casino. It will run live from 15th to 19th August 2018 and is sure to take both India and the Czech Republic by storm.
The popular Indian series was founded by Jaydeep Dawer and Manish Goenka in April 2010 and has proved to be a game changer in its own might. Buoyed by its success, the founders came across a stunning idea of hosting their idea one of the biggest stages in the world after one of their recent visits to the King’s Casino earlier this year.
Jaydeep Dawer told a magazine that our country has several gifted small- and medium-stakes players who never get to showcase their prowess at an international level because of their budgetary constraints. Owing to the same shortcoming, The Indian Poker Series has designed the series in such a way that a player’s overall budgetary and financial expenditures would be similar to that of any Goa-based tournament series in India as the buy-in during the series would not exceed INR 1 Lakh.
Terming it a first of its kind initiative, TIPS co-founder Manish Goenka remarked that it is also the first time that a low Buy-In series featuring several High-Value Guarantees is organized by an Indian organization in the European gaming circuit. He also thanked officials of the King’s Casino for providing a cost-effective and international platform to the Indian and Asian poker players.
An elated Goenka was also confident of the imminent success of two poker heavyweights and promised that TIPS would continue to throw more surprises to the players in near future. He also said that the planning for the second edition of The Indian Poker Series is already underway and that it would be organized on a much grander scale than the inaugural edition.
