Leading online poker site PokerBaazi has announced that it will be operating a poker room in partnership with the Pride Group of casinos. The new card room, christened as the ‘PokerBaazi Live Room’, will be operating on Level 2 of the new Casino Pride 2 offshore casino vessel in Goa.
For this venture, Baazi has tied up with Madhav Gupta, who operates online poker website Baadshah Gaming and has been associated with Pride 1 casino’s poker room for a long time.
It is understood, that as part of the arrangement, Gupta will cease operating the poker room at the Pride 1 casino and will instead, collaborate with PokerBaazi for the poker room in the Pride 2 vessel.
Commenting on the announcement, PokerBaazi CEO Navkiran Singh noted, “I want to bring the same levels of excitement for players to enjoy the game in the live circuit, as they have been doing online. Plus, we have Maddy (Madhav Gupta) aka ‘Goa ka Daddy’ on board which only makes this all the more exciting and fun! We are thrilled to be launching the PokerBaazi LIVE room aboard the new Pride 2 ship – which is truly a spectacular venue. Players can definitely expect some big live events over the next year or so.”
Gupta added, “I am very excited to announce what I feel will be the next catalyst for Indian Poker. The pride poker room has been a pet project of mine for the last decade and I believe that with the combination of India’s premier poker site and our years of great service live we can extend the goalpost of what will be offered to players.”
PokerBaazi has stated that it will be announcing cash game festivals and international tournament series onboard the Pride 2 casino in the coming few months.
