Online poker site PokerBaazi.com had recently announced an exciting promotion to host a satellite series for The Indian Poker Series (TIPS), that is being hosted by the Kings Casino, Rozvadov in the Czech Republic. TIPS guarantees a mammoth INR 1.5 crore GTD in the series scheduled to take place later this year from 15-19 August. In the past few years, there has been a significant rise in the number of Indian players heading to foreign shores to play poker. Asian destinations like Macau and Manila are usually most first-timers’ choice for their first exposure to international poker. However, more and more players are venturing to other poker destinations like the Czech Republic to catch the action and possibly win riches and glory for themselves and the country. Keeping this in mind, PokerBaazi.com rolled out a special set of satellites catering to players who wish to attend The Indian Poker Series. The satellites are already underway and they have found their first winner too in Anish Patra who will be sporting the PokerBaazi patch and be on his way to Europe for this tournament event in a couple of months.
To participate players have a chance to do it for as little as INR 33! These satellites are running daily and are divided into three steps. In the first step, you must enrol to the Step 1 [R+A] satellite which requires a meagre buy-in of INR 30+3. Do note, that here you are permitted for both re-entry and add-ons. Thus, this betters your odds to reach Step 2. Once you ship the Step 1 satellite, you are now eligible for Step 2 [RE]. Here you are required to make a buy-in of 300+30. Obviously, its increased a level of difficulty. Now you are only permitted for re-entry. Once you surpass this level, you have now entered just the phase before the decision. But this level will come on the 28th Day of this month. The final satellite rolls out at 9 pm sharp with the survivors of the level 2. Here you have the permit to re-entry so now you can fight your heart out for your dream-come-true opportunity. More satellites are expected to roll out post-May 28 to cater to poker enthusiasts. Remember the Step 3 i.e. the Mega Satty features a guarantee of 1 seat package.
The winner of the tournament on 28th May will be rewarded with a package that sponsors his or her overall trip and gaming in the Czech Republic at the Kings Casino. The package includes flight tickets from 3 of the most prominent airports in India to Prague and back, the buy-in to the Main Event and Highroller event of TIPS, 5-star accommodation on twin sharing, travel and meal expenses and transfers within the Czech Republic. So, you get a chance to compete for the lion’s share of INR 1.5 crores GTD by investing a tiny fraction of an amount.
