Speaking about the tournament, EWar Games founder and CEO, Parth Chadha says, “In the last few years, the real-money-based poker gaming scene in India has witnessed exponential growth. In view of the growing popularity of online poker in the country, we at EWar have been conducting many small poker tournaments on our platform. However, ‘Play the Champions’ is going to be our first big poker tournament that will be live-streamed exclusively for EWar users. We are delighted to partner with Muskan and Gaurav – the leading poker players of our country – for this tournament. We look forward to seeing what the emerging and/or less-known poker players of the country bring to the table, and how they play their moves to overpower the star players in the mind-centric poker competition.”
