The New Home for Indian Poker

The National Poker Series made its digital debut in June - providing the stage for players of all skill levels from across the country to compete in a relentless battle of skill, mental strength and consistency and take home the title of India’s first poker gold medallist. India’s first-ever Gold Championship poker series, the 2021 edition of the NPS was a landmark event for the country’s burgeoning poker community and saw over 84,000 players battle it out against each other in 64 tournaments for the title.

India’s First Poker Gold Medalist is Crowned!

The NPS saw players from every corner of the country join the action and stake their claim for the top prize. From experienced stalwarts to talented newcomers, the NPS witnessed some scintillating performances from players at the felts. Check out the Series podium below as well as the winners of all the tournaments from the last edition below.

The National Poker Series will return in 2022 - giving players another shot at achieving ultimate glory and taking home the most coveted competition in the Indian poker landscape.
Hear the Stories of India's Finest

We went around the country and spoke to some of the most recognised players in the poker scene. From age to profession, interest to life path, their stories are as varied as India itself, with one thing in common - they found their passion in poker, they combined it with hard work, they made it big. And now they're determined to be India's first poker gold medallist. Watch them below.

There’s more to win even after it!

The paths to glory are aplenty, The NPS has several marquee events, and a win in any of those, or in the Series Leaderboard, gives you a chance to etch your name as the first NPS Night of Champions. This event will be a Sit’N’Go which will be organised online on PokerBaazi.com and is scheduled for July 3rd, a week after the completion of the National Poker Series, with the top two winners taking home 7L and 3L in cash prizes:
