India’s first poker university, The Big Stack, has come together with one of the biggest gaming companies in India, 9stacks, to help create, teach and impart knowledge to poker lovers and turn them into poker pros. This partnership will provide poker players in the country with a dedicated platform to hone their skills and establish themselves as professional poker players.
Big Stack will be providing the space for players to sign up and train under some of the most experienced people in the industry, whereas 9stacks will provide them the platform to train and practice everything that they learn from their lessons on Big Stack. The main motive of this partnership is to turn players into polished and refined players and compete at the highest level. This collaboration aims to develop and bring forth the hidden talent spread across our land.
The Founder and CEO of The Big Stack, Rai Sahib Singh Khurana says, “we are extremely delighted to announce our partnership with 9stacks and are confident that our association will certainly revolutionize the world of poker. This first of its kind collaboration will help elevate the standard of poker in the country and will also give a boost to our business. We believe India as a market, holds huge potential for poker to emerge as a mainstream sport and we are all geared up to reap the benefits of the huge opportunity hidden in the industry.”
All the trainees at Big Stack will be given ₹2500 to hit the online felts on 9stacks and apply their knowledge gained from their learning from the course. Other than this, 9stack will additionally offer ₹15,000 to the trainees who will choose to enroll under personalized training packages at the Big Stack Poker University.
The CEO and Co-Founder of 9stacks, Sudhir Kamath added that, “we started 9stacks with the aim of taking poker to millions of new players across India. In the Big Stack Poker University, we’re glad to have found a partner who shares the same mindset. At present we will start with a few hundred enthusiastic new poker players, but we’re confident this will scale up manifold in the coming months and years. Further, by making the course entirely online and video-based with an added dash of testing and competition, I think they’ve cracked the code on designing an inherently scalable solution. I wish all the best to the Big Stack team in this much-needed endeavour.”
9stacks will provide all the coaches from Big Stack mega non-redeemable cash money for them to play on 9stacks themselves and help the students teach what decisions they make while playing which can be found in the hand history. Their gameplay will also be recorded and made available to all the students at the Big Stack Poker University, the innovative training environment for budding poker players of the country!
