I watch, read, study, play poker all the time, when I’m not busy being a mum to my six-year-old daughter! I’m a student at the Poker Boot Camp India for the last one year, and they have helped me grow manifold, the changes are evident not only in my game play, but also in my confidence, understanding and application of concepts and strategies.
