If you are a regular online player or even if you follow online poker in India, you have probably heard of the online poker platform – PokerSaint. PokerSaint is one of the most popular and dynamic online poker brands in the country currently. The platform has several players grinding regularly, and winning hefty amounts.
One such player is a regular crusher Ashvin Rao. Known for his aggressive style of gameplay, Rao is seen regularly grinding on PokerSaint and also referring his friends to the platform. We got in touch with Rao to understand more about his association with the platform, and what he likes about it so much.
Rao has been a regular grinder in the Indian poker circuit for over two years now. He is seen crushing it across other platforms too, but most of the time you are likely to see him on the tables at PokerSaint. He has quite some titles to his name which includes a handful of India Final Table Series (FTS) titles on Spartan Poker too. His love for poker which started with Gutshot Magazine and was fueled by PokerSaint has led the player to play live poker games too.
Firstly we asked this working professional how he was introduced to the game of skill, to which he says, “I was introduced to poker in 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world. Stuck at home due to the lockdown, there was not much to do. We could not even step out to meet our friends or even step out to buy essentials. That’s when I started discovering different ways to keep myself entertained. I came across the game of poker and instantly fell in love with it. Since then there has been no turning back.”
When asked how he was introduced to the online poker platform PokerSaint, he said, “Like I mentioned earlier, during the lockdown in 2020, I found poker. While I was on a quest to know more about the game, I came across Poker on Gutshot and they were offering some really cool bonuses and deposit offers on PokerSaint and I immediately signed up.”
After joining Poker Saint in July 2020, Rao has so far played more than 1,000 tournaments, and over 20,000 hands on cash tables on the platform. He also shipped several tournaments on the platform and has over ₹20 Lakh in winnings from the online poker site. Most recently he shipped the Sunday feature tournament which has a ₹10 Lakh GTD. Here, he pocketed a handsome paycheque of ₹1.80 Lakh, which happens to be his biggest score on the platform.
When we asked the Mumbai-based player what he likes the most about the platform, he said, “PokerSaint’s knock-out (KO) tournaments are what I like the most about the platform. These tournaments are super challenging and thrilling, giving me the excitement I need, and KO’s on PokerSaint are super rewarding, that just adds the cherry on the cake.” He further adds, “Apart from the amazing KO tournaments, PokerSaint has an instant cash-out feature that adds to the overall experience of playing here. That is also one of the reasons I prefer PokerSaint over any other poker platform.”
We couldn’t agree more with Rao. Afterall the platform does have some really hot featured tournaments running daily. And each of them are rightly named after precious stones and gems, because, guess what?! These tournaments are the real gems!
