9stacks News Update

Now, Run It Twice , on 9stacks!


The Run-It-Twice Tables are here on 9stacks!

Running it twice is like doubling the number of times the situation occurs. The higher the  number of trials, the more the likelihood of your actual win rate being close to your expected win rate.

To ace a skill based game like poker,  Run It Twice is a great way to reduce variance and determine your skill. As they say, skill in poker is realized in the long run and by RIT we are bringing you closer to the “long run”.
Look for RIT tagged tables in our Lobby and take a seat.

How it works:


-Whenever one or more players go  all-in in a hand on a table tagged “RIT”
-No more betting action is possible
-There are more cards to be dealt


-All the cards dealt so far will be a part of the outcome.
-The rest of the hand (remaining community cards) will be dealt
-The above step will be repeated one more time
-Chips in the pot will be distributed based on each run
Why do we have automatic RIT on these tables?

We found that running the RIT functionality on non- RIT labeled tables and based on the mutual agreement of players (By selecting a checkbox) is very confusing to amateurs and pros alike.

So, we decided to launch RIT tagged tables where you know what you are signing up for.
Why don’t we divide the total pot into two sub-pots? Do we charge rake multiple times?

RIT as a function distributes chips based on each run and the pot is divided accordingly.
We charge rake as a whole for the pot with the same rake cap conditions. We do not charge rake multiple times.
Bottomline : RIT gives players like you a significant edge becasue now you can chase promotions without those dreaded bankroll swings!

Log in and discover RIT and even more fun playing on 9stacks!

Nishant Sharma poised to take over the WSOP Main Event, #Bina Dare!

WhatsApp Image 2018-07-05 at 3.29.39 AM.jpeg

While most 20 somethings are figuring out what to do with their lives, 26 years old #9stacksTeamIndia member,  Nishant Sharma is on his way to create history at the World Series of Poker 2018 in Las Vegas.

After smashing the #LFGVegas contest on 9stacks & winning the trip to Vegas as well as the $10k WSOP Main Event ticket, Nishant, AKA ‘DojingBULLETS’ has been giving a very tough time to all the WSOP veterans. All this on his very first foray at the WSOP Vegas! Whew!

Leading the Indian contingent into a historic moment at the World Championship, Nishant has just concluded Day 5 of the $10,000 Buy in Main Event (8.8MN GTD) with a very good looking stack of 5,800,000 and ranks at number 15 currently. The chip leader has a stack of about 12 MN, currently. Friend, colleague and fellow #9stacksTeamIndia member, Vivek Rughani is also going strong with a stack of 1,545,000 at rank 93.

Day 5 was brutal as it started out with 309 challengers and ended with only 109 survivors for Day 6. It has been a 40 hour plus grind and only the fittest have survived so far. 

Nishant started playing poker during college with his gamer friends and within a span of almost two years quit his job in event management to focus on poker professionally!

WhatsApp Image 2018-07-10 at 4.48.15 PM.jpeg

Armed with his bright blue headphones and the famous mask, Nishant has been conquering major Multi Table Tournaments in India , as well as international tournaments in his characteristic, #BinaDare style. 

Badge 4.png

 He has been playing a very focussed, consistent  game throughout the Main Event  and has remained completely unfazed and patient in high pressure situations. He has always preferred the MTT structure and  all that grinding for long hours over the years has led up to this moment. 

This is the first time any Indian poker player has gotten so deep in the Main Event.  Team 9stacks wishes the Nishant  and Vivek  the very best for day 6. Join us to cheer then on and watch LIVE updates tomorrow on our Instagram stories here :  

Good luck, Nishant, #LetsBringItHome  

No pressure, but yes pressure! :-p



Vivek Rughani ‘beasts’ it up at the WSOP Main Event 2018!

vivek rughani.jpeg

Known for his beastly form on the poker tables, Vivek ‘Ik’ Rughani, AKA ‘Ibeasteverything’ on 9stacks has made a stunning entry into the top 309 grinders who have survived the brutal Day 4 of the  WSOP Main Event. 

9 Indian challengers took on the Main Event this time and Rughani is among the 3 who not only survived, but have also set the tables on fire  with their game. Rughani ends Day 4 with a flourish, bagging a good looking stack of 107,600 and coming In-The -Money ($37000 onwards) 

This is a historic moment for #9stacksTeamIndia as this is the first time anyone from the Indian contingent has made it so deep into the Main Event! Rughani outlasted  poker legends like Phil Ivey and Phil Hellmuth, along with other Indian poker greats like Jaideep Sajwan, Aditya Agarwal, Rohan Bhasin, Yudhishter Singh Jaswal , Sriharsha Doddapeneni and Apoorva Goel! 

Vivek Rughani participated in the 9stacks #LFGVegas  contest where all those who cracked Level 42 , the Platinum Stack, won a trip to Vegas and bankroll worth $999 to play poker during the WSOP.  Playing  and winning at the World Series of Poker had been a cherished dream for Rughani and we, along with him, wait with bated breath to watch him make it come true!

Rughani,a  professional poker player along with his friend and contemporary, Nishant Sharma started his WSOP journey earlier than the rest of the #lFGVegas pack, by playing the Monsterstack Venetian in June. After stunning the tables there, he moved on to dominate the tables at the Main Event and has been holding his own very well ever since!

Team 9stacks and every one back home wishes the ace the very best and we hope Vivek brings back home that beautiful bracelet!
