There’s a lot to learn from poker. The game itself is so versatile and sometimes unpredictable, just like life. Through their journey, poker players have learnt and grown with many still reflecting on the way the game relates to their own life. It is something that goes beyond fame or money. Poker is a sport that humbles its players and pushes them to get better. Let’s take a look at what poker players have taken in from the game.
Being the first professional female poker player in India, Muskan Sethi is a force to reckon with. Armed with a charming personality, there’s nothing that this poker powerhouse can’t do.

Nitin Arora has already made quite a name for himself in the Indian poker circuit. Although he’s still young in his poker journey, that doesn’t mean that the game hasn’t taught him a thing or two about life. The daily grind and the hard work that goes into the game has only helped him fall deeper in love with the game. He shares a picture of one particular Saturday grind on his Instagram, with the caption, “The game that takes a minute to learn but a lifetime to master.” And we wholeheartedly agree.

Poker pro and an avid streamer, Anujkumar Kodam is not the one to take the game lightly. He is passionate and dedicated to the game. He’s deeply insightful and if we were to ask him all the things that poker has taught him, he could probably fill a book. But until that time, his social media is one place we can go to for some poker wisdom. Twitter seems to be his favourite platform to drop some learnings and here is one of them.
To go ALLIN by choice and with initiative, not when life forces you to – passively, is the way to win in life and poker alike.#pokerlife
