Good evening Baazigars!
October witnessed grand celebrations for Diwali across the country and went down as a relatively happy and joyous month. In terms of the game of poker too, the fact that more people have warmed up to it is a matter of great satisfaction. We added to the spirit of the season with Hi-Octane October, The Diwali Cash League, Double or Nothing tournaments, and our newest poker tournament series, The Big Series. Three Baazigars won iPhone X in the Hi Octane October. What made our Diwali special was the response that you, Baazigars, continue to give us and the fact that we have yet again been given the opportunity to give more!
Thundering November will feature a wide range of prizes, rewards, and contests, and will include The Big Series- a series that has attracted growing numbers over the past few weeks. Weekdays now offer similar tournaments on the weekends, with 28 LAC up for grabs from Monday to Saturday. The weekends will continue to be featured by the Baazi Super Sunday events.
Daily, weekly and monthly Leaderboard prizes will be featured this month, and iPhoneXs, bankrolls, prizes for ‘Most Valuable Player’ and tickets to The MoneyMaker 2.0 will all be up for grabs. Everyone seems to be grinding tourneys these days, and we’ve tried to include a range of tournament types and structures throughout the month.
PokerBaazi.com has also launched a separate leaderboard for its latest innovation, Double Or Nothing tournaments. Daily prize is a 5000 Bankroll on the website and the monthly winner will be crowned with a RADO watch worth 1 Lac.
The much anticipated The MoneyMaker 2.0 is scheduled for 6 pm, 26th November, and is certain to attract some incredible numbers. Satellites are running daily on the gaming client for as little as INR 10. This event will feature a guaranteed 1Crore Prize pool, 30 Lac for 1st and 20 Lac for 2nd.
PokerBaazi Premier League is back with its Winter Edition and will feature a massive 2.6Crore Prizepool. The 6-day series kicks off on the 14th and will consist of a total of 31 tournaments. Headlining this series is the 60 LAC GTD ME with 15 LAC up top and the 50 LAC GTD High-roller Event.
November promises to be a massive month for poker with no shortage of possibilities to convert big overnight! Look out for the all-new hand re-player and let us know what you think! And lastly, good luck on the felts Baazigars!
