Poker in the country has grown to become extremely popular, and recent events continue to indicate that this growth is fast rising. PokerBaazi.com received an incredible response from players across the country in the recently concluded online poker tournament The MoneyMaker.

The event promised a whopping INR 1 Crore Prizepool and a top prize of INR 25 Lac, the largest ever to be recorded in Indian poker. Not only were these numbers unheard of, they were also beaten! 1219 total entries, a total of nearly INR 1.22 Crore, and a top prize of a jaw dropping INR 30.47 Lac is what was on offer!

Sunday night saw 800 poker players from across the country take a shot at the coveted bracelet, title and juicy prize-pool offered by The MoneyMaker. It took over 11 hours to crown the winner, Champion of The MoneyMaker – Anuj “aatmaan” Kodam. In addition to the hefty top prize of INR 30.27 Lac, Anuj wins himself the bracelet, title and a place in the history books. Facing him in the heads up battle was former PokerBaazi Team Pro Paawan “ukissmyace” Bansal, who received INR 18.77 Lac for his second place finish.

The MoneyMaker took the poker community by storm, recording figures that were shocking to most. A cap of 800 unique entries to the event proved to be inadequate- a scenario that was by no means anticipated. An additional 419 re-entries to the event took the total number of entries to 1219. With a higher entry cap, this number would have been bigger!

While there were many players that were unable to register to the event, this overwhelming turnout means so much for the game of poker in India. A turnout like this one only means that next time, it’ll be bigger. It’ll be grander. And it’ll me meatier. The event created history and is a benchmark for what’s in store next.

PokerBaazi.com is absolutely delighted with the response shown by the poker community in the country. The event inspires us to give more to the community, and together, recreate history. We sincerely apologize to those players who were unable to register in time, and will ensure that moving forward such instances do not arise.

Poker games at times bring you down to situations where players are supposed to come with spontaneous actions, many stressful plays and also requires high concentration.

The ability of decision-making is a key ingredient for the players out there, and this is must be attained. There are many techniques that could be excelled through experience but some that could be attained by your diet.

Poker can help meet all the expectations you list. Apart from that, it provides you entertainment, money, and a way to meet new friends. However, one thing that poker games can’t help you with is staying in shape and enough of energy that a poker player demands.

Poker is a very sedentary activity where people sit around for longer periods of time without burning any calories. To reduce this stress we have motioned a quick healthy routine one should follow in order to keep your brain healthy, focused and working optimally for maximum wins and mastering the Texas hold’em Poker game and other variants of poker too.

Drink a Lot                                                     

Well, when it is stated drink a lot, we nowhere mean that players target on hard drinks but normal water, tea or coffee. Drinking a lot of water is important because when you sit at the tables either playing online poker tournaments or the live poker games, it can get your body rejuvenated, also, will keep you awake and much more alert.

For the extra boost and energy, players should stick to tea or coffee as it works well with stress on the heart. Also, players should be aware that the consumption of sodas and fruit juices can lead to high blood sugar then suddenly drop which is due to the high content of sugar that can affect poker playing skills.

Focus on Eating Habits

Aiming to get best poker sequences should be listed second here because the prior thing to think of is a healthy diet first. Why? Because, players are often traveling and living with unhealthy diet – junks all the time. A big no to junks, hands-on healthy food players!

Make sure to have complete meals three times a day. Additionally, eat light snacks in between to refuel your batteries. The players should be eating every couple of hours to maintain the energy levels so that they can focus better.

Make sure that you are having a moderate sized meal before you sit for the game. You will agree to it, eat less as you tend to be more alert when your stomach is not full.

Increase Your Sleep Hours

A tournament can make you sit constantly for 10- 12 hours that too with high concentration and stressful situations. After all, money cannot be piled that easily! Though it’s fun as every poker hand gets intriguing as the time passes, pretty much-indulging things tend to be. To deal with these hard situations, players should make sure that they have a complete round of 8 hours peaceful sleep. Not sleeping properly can bulge you too vague decisions and keep your emotions on an even keel.

Moreover, overdosing can also hurt your performances and lead you to difficult downswings like the unnecessary anger, depression, aggressiveness and uncontrollable emotions.

So, Poker lovers have a balanced blend of sleep, food, and drinks so that you give a splendid performance in the poker table.



A tiny amount of your stack can lead you to bag a huge amount. Don’t believe us? The MoneyMaker will be soon here to surprise you all. Grab the chance to get "Raees" within a few hours of play this week.
