PokerBaazi LIVE takes over Casino Pride 2 poker room
In recent times, we've seen so many developments that are brilliant for the game of poker in India. Several leagues and tournaments have launched in the last 12-18 months, both live and online. In Goa too, the major poker rooms in all major casinos have been taken over by big names in poker, including Deltin Royale's room being run by Adda52 and the Big Daddy poker room taken over by Team IPC who is also behind Spartan Poker.
In a recent development, PokerBaazi.com took to their blog to announce their latest tie up with Pride Group, which will see them taking over operations in the poker room at Casino Pride 2 in River Mandovi, Goa. The room is set to feature high-octane cash games and international tournaments throughout the year.
The room is reportedly going to be run in collaboration with Baadshah Gaming CEO Madhav Gupta. Commenting on this development, Gupta said, "I am very excited to announce what I feel will be the next catalyst for Indian Poker. The pride poker room has been a pet project of mine for the last decade and I believe that with the combination of India’s premier poker site and our years of great service live we can extend the goalpost of what will be offered to players.”
Gutshot recently launched its June-August 2019 print magazine where we featured Navkiran Singh, PokerBaazi CEO. He gave us a couple of hints as to future plans of the company which included signing of a new ambassador in Yuvraj Singh (BalleBaazi) and also that of the return of PokerBaazi's live poker aspirations, which has been made clear too now.
“I want to bring the same levels of excitement for players to enjoy the game in the live circuit, as they have been doing online. Plus, we have Maddy aka ‘Goa ka Daddy’ on board which only makes this all the more exciting and fun! We are thrilled to be launching the PokerBaazi LIVE room aboard the new Pride 2 ship – which is truly a spectacular venue. Players can definitely expect some big live events over the next year or so.” said Singh.
With three high-profile brands running poker operations in Goan waters at the moment, the sky is the limit for the Indian poker industry. PokerBaazi itself has been constantly pushing the limits in online poker in the last year or so and it's interesting to see how they continue in this new live venture.
