We are happy to announce that Gutshot Magazine is the new media partner for Poker Sports League’s (PSL) franchise teams, Kolkata Kings. This team is one of the six teams participating in the much-awaited poker league.
PSL comes from the hood of Mind Sports League Pvt. Ltd. and is India’s first poker league, aiming at giving poker an equal standing as other team sports. The poker league features a unique, team-based format, wherein six teams compete in various stages to ultimately emerge victorious. This time around players were bought via an auction.

In our rich history that has spanned over a decade now, Gutshot Magazine has always tied up with events and tournaments that have helped push the awareness of skill gaming in the country. While poker has been our core focus over the years, Gutshot is now India’s leading real money gaming magazine that covers news, updates, previews, highlights, and much more over the poker, rummy, and fantasy sports verticals. As a leading publisher in the real money gaming space, it was an easy decision to tie up with Kolkata Kings as media partner.
Ashvin Rao, Assistant Vice President at Gutshot Magazine spoke about the sponsorship, saying, “We are glad to be media partners of Kolkata Kings. We believe the spectacular combination of Parthasarathi, Wadhawan, Ahuja and Bindra is capable of performing exceedingly well and being the most qualified contenders to win the fourth season of the league.”
