Join us to cheer #9stacksTeamIndia at the World Series of Poker 2018 as they set the tables ablaze with their talent! 

9stacks had launched a 4 month long #LFGVegas challenge  with the aim of taking  a team of talented and passionate poker players across the country to Las Vegas during the WSOP season this summer.

The participants had to reach level 42 to win a free trip to Las Vegas, and level 75 for a WSOP Main Event ticket worth $10,000! 

We got an overwhelming participation from the Indian poker community with more than 40 players winning the Vegas package and 12 of them, winning the WSOP Main Event tickets. 

Over the last two weeks, 23 players flew to Las Vegas and have been on a roll every since! What is extremely exciting to note is that most of these players are playing the WSOP for the very first time AND have left an indelible mark at the tables with their game!

WSOP first timer and #LFGVegas qualifier Mayank Jaggi warmed up by grabbing the 6th spot at the Wynn Summer Classic 1 Million GTD NLHE tournament on the 28th of June 2018, winning a cool 56K in USD i.e about Rs 38 Lakh INR! Mayank plays the Main Event this week and we’re cheering him on to bring home THE bracelet!

Pros Nishant Sharma and Vivek Rughani, both terrific strategists on the tables, started their WSOP journey early, by playing the Monster Stack tournaments. From the updates we’ve been getting, both have made everyone in the arena sit up and take notice of their game! 

Both played the WSOP Main Event Day 1C and made it to day 2 with some very good looking stacks! Good Luck, boys!

Arsh Grover aka @BigggTymeR and Vishal Tulsyan aka @Spartacus also battled valiantly  against thousands of Main Event participants but could not make it to Day 2. Well played and GG, Guys! Let’s crush the other tournaments!

9stacks co founder Pratik Kumar has also been killing it at the tables. This is his first time at the WSOP as well and  @Lazybones has lost no time in making the most of it by indulging himself in doing what he loves doing best- play poker all day! He has already landed in-the-money at one of the tournaments at the Aria casinos, with a great looking stack of 4,30,000!

Sanjay Taneja (@Werewolf ) and Dinesh Singh (@FI$H) also join him in Vegas for all the fun as they hit the cash tables and participate in the innumerable tournaments that make up the WSOP. The trio makes for a deadly THREE OF A KIND, indeed. :P

No room for profanity on 9stacks

9stacks blocks users for using abusive language while chatting with others on the table.

Table talk is something every  poker player is familiar with. Poker is a social game and is made to be fun, and that includes talking to each other at the table. (We have a great chat feature that you can use to banter with your friends and foes alike, and we hope you use it a lot!)

Playing mind games and unnerving the other player is a skill that very few people master. If used effectively, it can really work in your favour. However, there are rules that you need to follow. People come to the poker table  to have fun, and we at 9stacks want to keep it that way.

9stacks has always been a place where players of all skill levels and backgrounds come together to bond and play their favorite game, in an environment that is safe and friendly.  There is no place for players who use cheap tactics and abusive language towards other players to score a point.

Recently, we came across a smart aleck, let’s call him Mr. Filthy Mouth,who thought using sleazy and abusive language would work to unnerve a feisty young lady who was having a good run at the table. Instead of backing down, she dropped us a mail at care@9stacks.com letting us know the table and time. Our fraud detection cell swung into action, identified the table and whipped out the entire chat history. (All chat messages are securely archived on our system - so if there’s something you would be embarrassed to say in public, please don’t say it on our chat either!) We immediately sent him a notice, suspended his chat privileges for a week, and warned him that if he repeats this again his account will be blocked permanently. And we do mean it.

As a company, we’ve taken a call that we’re happy to let some customers go (be it pros, regs, high rollers or newbies) if they interfere with our mission of providing good clean fun.

We want to be a platform that values and strives to ensure that EACH and EVERY player, irrespective of their gender, religion, or sexual orientation, feels welcome and safe while they play on our platform.

9stacks is a PROFANITY-FREE platform and we intend to keep it that way.

If you are undergoing a similar issue , please report the incident to us by writing to care@9stacks.com.

See you at the table!

Team 9stacks
