Autumn 2008 will see more poker action in Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Goa


Autumn 2008 will see more poker action in Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Goa

The success of last year's Asian Poker Classic (see previous InfoPowa reports) has prompted the introduction of four new major Indian poker tournaments in Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Goa through the newly launched Indian Poker Tour.

Scheduled for autumn 2008, the tour comprises four major tournaments that will attract global poker aces and some of India’s best players to do battle for their share of an expected $1 million prize-pool.

This is the first-ever poker tour to be staged in India and promises to make the game a big hit in the world’s second most populous nation. With the success of Indian players in last year’s Asian Poker Classic, the India Poker Tour (IPT) will spur the development of poker in India in a professional and responsible manner.

The tour kicks off in Mumbai in September and moves on to Bangalore. The third event will take place in Delhi before the Grand Final is held in the beautiful coastal state of Goa.

“Our goal is to add poker to the pastimes of the card and sport-crazed fans of India,” says Imran Hassan, Director of Operations. “India traditionally has had a long history of being a card-loving nation. So we hope the launch of the India Poker Tour (IPT) will now help to satisfy the Indian craving for skill based card games.”

Players will be able to qualify for the event via live and online satellites, with the online satellites starting in June 2008. Full details will be published at India Poker website.
