We have already presented to you some players you need to watch out for this PPL.

Like the previous contender, next in line is another Mumbaikar who has made out a mark in the Indian online poker tournament circuit.

Let's find out more about this player & why is this player on the list.

The player we are talking about today is Sameer ‘Killersam’ Tavanandi. Sameer has been regularly playing tournaments on and has had some brilliant scores to his name.

What makes him more fierce is that he has a great experience of India’s most prestigious online poker series, the PPL. In just the last edition, ‘Killersam’ played extremely well and missed the second spot on the Leaderboard by just 1 point. Given his recent record, he is quite capable of repeating his PPL performance this season and might as well go on to claim the ‘Baazigar of the Series’ title.

Apart from other big and small tournament scores, Sameer is known to have mastered the Tuesday major on PokerBaazi. He has shipped The Endeavour tournament multiple times. He also came close to winning a Vegas package worth 9 LAC when he made it to the VEGAS FINALE which was an 8-max SnG.

Just beware, ‘Killersam’ is all set for another kill on the felt!

PokerBaazi Premier League Summer’18 Edition will be held from 18th to 24th June, 2018. The league which has grown to be India’s most prestigious league will carry a massive 4 CRORE + in guaranteed prizes. There’s also a massive prize for the 2018 PPL yearly leaderboard. A Harley Davidson to the winner & prizes worth 25 LAC.

PokerBaazi Premier League Summer Edition will commence on the 18th of this month. We are here with the second in this interesting series that is going to help you ease out your PPL journey. The player in contention today is someone who hasn't have any big scores in PPL as yet. So, who is this player & why is this player on the list? Let's find out.

We are talking about a passionate poker player hailing from the financial capital of the country, Mumbai! We are talking about a player who has proved that poker is a game of skill and the only way to master it is to treat it that way. We are talking about a player who has put a stamp on the fact that a mind sport like poker is not a game for just men, but women can easily dominate it too. We are talking about Anjali Kochhar, famously known by her moniker 'Smoothie12'.

Just so that you don't start to think that may be a one off victory in a poker tournament doesn't make a big deal, we would like to point out some of Anjali's recent scores. On 13th March this year, 'Smoothie12' outshined a big and strong field to ship The Endeavour 15 LAC GTD tournament on She followed it up by conquering one of the other majors on PokerBaazi, The Summit 10 LAC GTD tournament. Just a month later, she showed everyone that this Baazigar is here to stay for long. She won The Endeavour once again! More recently, she had a final table finish in the Baazi Super Sunday 15 LAC GTD tournament.

All in all one can easily deduce that this superwoman is for sure someone you need to watch out for this PPL.

The Summer edition of the PokerBaazi Premier League will be held from 18th to 24th June, 2018. The league which has grown to be India’s most prestigious league will carry a massive 4 CRORE + in guaranteed prizes. There’s also a mad prize for the 2018 PPL yearly leaderboard. A Harley Davidson to the winner & prizes worth 25 LAC.

Fellas, PokerBaazi Premier League Summer Edition is round the corner and so are we here with an interesting series that will make you aware of the players you gotta keep a watch on. Our first player in this series is someone who doesn’t need any introduction.  Let's find out more.

You really don’t need to use words to define this guy. In an early age, he has managed to build a list of achievements that is more than enough to do the talking. We are talking about Kartik Ved, who the poker community lovingly calls ‘TheInternetKid’. Well, players do fall prey to this ‘Kid’!

Hailing from one of the largest metropolises in India, this 24 year old wizkid from Pune has already had experience on multiple sides of the felt. Off the felt, Kartik runs a poker stable allowing many other young poker enthusiasts to learn poker the right way and build a rightful career out of it.

On felt, he has had numerous wins and deep runs in online and live national and international events. Kartik got attracted to online poker in 2014. He came 3rd in the HighRoller event of the inaugural Baazi Poker Tour held at Goa in 2016. Two years since and he hasn’t showed even a bit of dryness. Among others, his recent applaudable feat includes winning The Summit 10 LAC GTD tournament on on back to back Thursdays last week.  

Talking about the PPL, it is not something new for ‘TheInternetKid’. In the last edition, the Spring’18 edition held earlier this year, Kartik landed 5th on the leaderboard. He, for sure, will leave no stone unturned to race it up to the 1st rank on the yearly PPL leaderboard which awards a fancy Harley Davidson to the winner.

The Summer edition of the PPL, which is India’s most prestigious online poker league, will carry a massive 4 CRORE + in guaranteed prizes. The Main Event is a whopping 1 CRORE Guaranteed tournament.

 How you doin people? 

Comedy and drama are the pillars of our society, and what better way to define these pillars than to remember one of the greatest sitcom of all times. ‘Oh my god !’ yes, F.R.I.E.N.D.S is back with a version 2.0 and no, ‘ we were not on a break !’. Let’s ‘Pivot’ our imaginations a little, and create a scenario in our minds of our beloved cast of F.R.I.E.N.D.S in a “Poker Tournament” organized at Central Perk, with all of them strangers to each other and ready to play the game of their lives! And ofcourse, Gunther is the dealer and guess who will be his first choice as the Big Blind, Rachael! Ross too has a crush on Rachael and he sits next to her, making him the Small Blind. Phoebe is just happy to be there. Joey has his eyes on the muffins kept on the counter! Monica is competitive as usual and just wants to win the game and Chandler is trying to cut the tension by his sarcastic jokes and the only person laughing at them is Joey!

The game has begun and now let’s scrutinize the game play of each person

Monica- She is person who is focused the most on the game. She is so competitive that sometimes she even goes violent if her hole cards and community cards do not result in a perfect 5 card deck! She is also the loudest person on the table and shouts after every round she wins!

Chandler- Chandler is the richest guy on the table who raises so much money in every round that the other members find it pensive to even cope with. Whenever he doesn’t have a good set of cards, he passes a sarcastic joke which makes it too obvious for the other players!

Joey- He is the only person on the table who hasn’t understood the rules of poker! He came to table to play just because they were serving Pizza as a refreshment. He is constantly borrowing money from Chandler to play but his acting skills make him quite a bluff master! Half of his mind is also in protecting his slice of Pizza, as ‘Joey doesn’t share food!’

Ross- Ross just came to the table to approach Rachael, and invites her for the Poker Tournament! So his entire game is focused on the motive of impressing Rachael. He starts telling everyone about the origins of Poker, which everybody frowns at and ultimately tell him to stop!

Phoebe- Phoebe knows about poker a lot, since she grew up on the streets. So she using all the tricks up her sleeves and in her mind, she is also composing a song about the sweet game of Poker, which she plans to perform after the game! She also feels that ‘Rachael is Ross’s lobster’!

Rachael- She knows how to play Poker, but is a newbie and often asks Ross for help with her moves. Since winning doesn’t really matter to Ross, he willingly helps her! She doesn’t know how to bluff and a tear rolls down her eyes every time she acquires a bad deck of cards! And by the way, her dressing sense is amazing!

The game ends and guess who the winner is? It’s Monica! She defeats Chandler in the final round who was frightened of getting punched if she loses!
