We all know that one friend who is brilliant at playing poker! How do they play so well, how do they know what’s happening and what tricks do they apply? All these questions are not easy to answer, but these questions certainly tell us that poker is getting HUGE in India! Poker is not a game of luck, it’s a game where certain skill sets are required, that’s why it’s not regarded as a regular card game. That’s why we think that learning the game is going to help us all in the future, especially tonight (Diwali).

Find out the 5 reasons why we’re so convinced about Poker’s greatness.

1) Because gambling is in our tradition!

Ask Yudhishtir and his brothers, ask Duryudhan and his brothers, and definitely ask Draupadi.

2) Indian Poker has gone from a small circuit with a mixed bag of skill levels to what it is today

The India Poker Championship (IPC) for example, has been running since 2010 and is by far the most prestigious Poker series in the land drawing in competitors from all over the country.

3) Amateur poker players are learning and evolving and experiencing new things every day

Players know the big names, the right moves, the math, and the psychology. They like watching televised professional games, making sure they only play industry standard cards & chips or generally lecturing each other on “the right way to play that hand”. They are learning, evolving and experiencing new things every day.

4) Kunal Khemu & Minissha Lamba have played in the IPC and others like Arjun Rampal & Reema Kagti have all become keen students of the game.

Much better than watching a Sajid Khan movie, right?

If you are as clueless as I am about the game and want to be a part of this sport, check out this website – PokerHigh.com. Their belief is that an education in Poker won’t just help you play better, it will make you live better. Be it enhancing general confidence, being able to make informed decisions, staying focused & disciplined or learning how to read people’s behaviour.

That is why the World Series of Poker draws in thousands of players who compete for millions of dollars (fun fact: the last 7 champions were all under 30). These guys hope to bring Indian players into the spotlight on a global level. Not just to play with the best, but to be one of the best.
