Poker Players Turn Into Warriors To Battle COVID-19


COVID-19 has brought the world to a halt but that did not stop poker players from making a difference. While everyone was stuck within the four walls helplessly scrolling through their social media handles, poker players became warriors who came to rescue the community. How? By grinding hard.

The COVID-19 initiatives were shared on Facebook groups which ended up garnering a lot of attention and it also raised considerable funds. By organizing online tourneys along with charity tournaments, players and poker operators contributed to the noble cause. 

Poker pros who contributed to the cause were Sriharsha Doddapaneni, Zarvan Tumboli, Kunal Patni, Nitin Arora, Yash Chawal, Siddhanth Kapoor, Akshay Kapoor, Anmol Mehta among others. While most players contributed, actor cum poker player Siddhanth Kapoor had a list with him when it came to COVID-19 relief initiatives.

Kapoor started by donating plasma for COVID-19 patients and urged his Instagram community to follow suit. He also started a #Mumbai plasma drive in association with Red FM 93.5 India and Aaarnaav Shirshat. The young gun is also advocating for the ‘Find a Bed’ initiative where he has been supporting 20,000 students across 160 cities to help find a bed or build a quarantine centre for COVID-19 patients. Kapoor has raised ₹15,00,000 so far and he plans to raise even more with the help of the initiatives that he is working on.

While poker players took conclusive steps to help fight the deadly virus, poker operators like Natural8, Spartan Poker, BLITZPOKER, PokerHigh among others conducted tournaments to support the cause. 

Online poker brand PokerBaazi stepped up in April 2020 by organising a fundraising tournament series to donate a minimum of ₹10,00,000 to support India’s battle against COVID-19 by associating with Delhi Youth Welfare Association (DYWA). The entire fee was donated to the cause and to support the daily wage workers with money and ration. Baazi also conducted ‘The 02 Initiative’ tournament on 7 May 2021 and successfully raised ₹3,31,000. 

Spartan Poker conducted the 12 Lakh Futuristic tournament while Adda52 hosted several events to extend help to those in need. This is just a gist of all the initiatives which the kind-hearted poker players and brands undertook. To read the full article head to read.gutshotmagazine.com.
