Celebrating Women In PSL Season 3 Virtual Poker

Celebrating Women In PSL Season 3 Virtual

by Donna Amo Posted on 07 Jan, 2021

Poker Sports League (PSL) is first of its kind in India. The league follows a unique team-based format and has a mix of professional and amateur poker players. The past two seasons of PSL were played live but due to the pandemic, season 3 will now be held in an online format. This decision to take the league online has opened the doors for many players to participate from all over the country.

Poker was once widely regarded as a male sport and the presence of women in the game was minuscule. But through the years and the introduction of online poker, many notable women players have cropped up over the world, especially in India. The entry of women into the Indian poker scene has definitely grown over the years.

This year, PSL has seen a rise in women players with one in each team. Many of these women have contributed to the Indian poker community in a big way. Let’s take a closer look at these amazing players and their accomplishments.
