Vanessa Selbst is a revered poker celebrity who has 1had a magnificent poker career all throughout. Interestingly, after her retirement from poker, she chose trade market investment as her new profession which in turn is a hint towards the possibility of poker players being comparatively more skillful while investing money in the stock market.

Aaron Brown, author of “the poker face of wall street” firmly believes that the game of poker and the trends of stock market have a lot of similarities. Brown drew this inference from his own experience – he has been a poker player all his life. Also, trade market was his profession for 30 years. From his 30 year stock market career, he felt that there is a lot of similarity between poker and stock market.

Since both the fields are under the influence of probability to quite an extent, here we are to draw a parallelism between trade market and the game of poker:

Taking risk is the first step: successful poker players and great stock market traders know it very well that risk is the stepping stone to success in their field. On one hand they know, any moment, they can face huge losses but on the other hand they also know that it can also be recovered in the same way. The most successful poker players and investors know what it feels like to take a serious risk, and they don’t let it rattle them too much. Maybe they’ve even “pushed the rent money into the middle of the table,” Brown says.

Both poker players and traders should be observant to the trends that led to their win. Taking those patterns as reference, maestros of both the field secure their profit.

Analyzing the pattern: traders and poker players are subjected to two different scenarios while analyzing patterns. A poker player analyzes his opponents from the change in his or her body language, the pattern of betting and various other factors. But to be a good trader, you need to do extensive reading and research on the previous market trends to save your money from being wasted. Early wins are a result of the correct impromptu decision whereas profits at large come from extension research and updated knowledge of the market.

Team work: unlike poker, trading is a team work. You cannot earn well from the stock market without partnership and team work. But in poker, your win is your credit. Thus, this habit of working solo sometimes results into repulsiveness towards team work, in case of poker players. This brings their downfall while investing in stock market.

 

The third edition of 1 CRORE Guaranteed The MoneyMaker comes to an end, declaring Priyadarshi Rajnish as the winner, who walked away with the winner's prize money of 30 LAC. After him, it is Manish Jain, who has secured the position of the first runner-up, bagging prize money amounting to 20 LAC.

The MoneyMaker is India's first 1 CRORE prize money online poker tournament! Poker is not a very favoured game in India up till now (things are visibly changing with time though), unveiling an online tournament of this high value was really a big move on the part of PokerBaazi.com. But, Indian poker enthusiasts have shown their utmost support through their extremely high participation from every corner of India.

Since the very first edition, The MoneyMaker has been a very successful online poker tourney and now, the third edition has attracted an excellent field of 734 unique entrants and 430 re-entries taking the prize pool to 1,16,40000. The excitement of this huge tourney was in the air long before the D-Day. PokerBaazi.com, which always prioritizes the Baazigars above all, had rolled out regular satellites and promotions to make the ticket to the MoneyMaker easily available for all, especially the Baazigars. The initial buy-in for this mammoth event was INR 11000.

The felt wasn’t very easy. All the entrants gave a tough fight to each other to bag the winner’s title. One of the most memorable hands was right before the heads-up battle between Rajnish and Manish. “PaperBoat” and “pottysingh” were dealt with 10d, As; and 6h,5h, respectively. The hand was a significant one and “pottysingh” lost almost all his chips to the eventual Rank 1, “paperboat”. The board flipped 3h Js 9h 3d 9c. “PaperBoat” called a massive bet with an A-high on the river and destroyed what would otherwise have proved to be a brilliant bluff!!
In all, the players securing the first 82 positions came in the money.

Here’s the top 5 results:

Place Players Prize Money
1 Priyadarshi ‘PaperBoat’ Rajnish 30 LAC
2 Manish ‘youngistan’ Jain 20 LAC
3 Anirban ‘pottysingh’ Das 10.76 LAC
4 Wilson ‘kalingkaling’ Yomso 7.85 LAC
5 Shashwat ‘shash26’ Agarwal 5.23 LAC

Hearty congratulations to the warriors who have fought the felt rightfully and used their skills to snatch away their well-deserved titles. Pokerbaazi.com is very pleased to have made the experience of The MoneyMaker, a treat for all the poker enthusiasts. At the end of the tourney, the CEO of Pokerbaazi.com, Navkiran Singh said, “I heartily congratulate the winners of the tourney. Also, my best wishes go to every player who participated in the event. It gives me immense pleasure to sense so much dedicated support from players across the country. PokerBaazi was, is and would continue working to provide poker with its much-deserved pedestal in the face of Indian Sports. Thank you all for making this event a grand success.”
