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!
All of us lesser mortals back home can only wait for more updates on the fun they’re having at the tables. Watch the LIVE updates on our Instagram channel, @9stacksgaming and never miss out an important moment from these guys!

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
