Spartan Poker presents 'Around The Table' Episode 1!
The poker industry in India has been on a continuous rise in the last few years but one complaint we've always heard is that there's a dearth of poker quality content being generated. In the last few months, we've seen some poker content cropping up including many players live streaming tournaments while some top companies producing fun and engaging videos.
The most recent brand to get into content creation is Spartan Poker, who is one of the undoubted leaders in online poker in India. They tied up with SnG Comedy led by comedian Karan Talwar to create a new YouTube series called 'Around The Table'. It's the Diwali season and just like how every household hosts card games at homes during this festive time, the show will see a few celebrities trying to win some hands too!
Episode 1 of the show launched last night at 8pm featuring Talwar himself as the host, actress Aishwarya Sakhuja, the multi-talented composer/actor/singer Baba Sehgal, comedian Gursimran Khamba, and poker pro Abhishek Goindi. There's plenty of banter and fun happening as these guys battle it out at the felts.
Watch the whole episode here:
Sakhuja played Toasty in Indian daily soap Saas Bina Sasural and here, she shows the rest that poker isn't a male dominated game as most believe in India. Sponsored by Spartan Poker, we're all excited to see how these first-timers fare against poker pro and recently-turned coach, Abhishek Goindi.
Recently, 9stacks launched a show called Pokerface hosted by Gopal Dutt and that show was also well received by the industry. For more updates on 'Around The Table' and similar poker content from India and across the world, stay tuned to GutshotMagazine.com.
