CardBaazi concluded its very first edition of Indian Rummy League (IRL) featuring a massive price pool of Rs 10 crore. Ran Singh, the 39-year-old from Mahendra Gadh, Haryana, was declared as the winner at the final table and the champion of the inaugural edition, that took place on the 15June at Goa. He took home a prize money of Rs 20 Lakhs from a finale prize pool of Rs 1 crore, followed by Pankaj Raghunath Khaire, a 31-year-old, from Surat who came in second and the third position was bagged by Rajesekhar Palantla, 40-year-old, from Bangalore, who took home the prize money of Rs 10 Lakhs and Rs 5 Lakhs respectively.

IRL was launched with the objective to attract players from various parts of India with a special focus on the tier-2 and tier-3 cities and unearth the latent potential of the traditional sport. The tournament began on the 26March attracting over 26,000 entries and saw a total of over six lakh hands being played. Apart from the metropolitan cities, IRL saw entries from cities like Bundi, Bidar, Sikar, Nashik, Gorakhpur, Deoria, Raipur, Bhilwara, Panjim, Dehradun, Rajkot, and Aurangabad among others. Throughout the league, the participants from across categories recorded key wins. There were as much as 150 players who won more than Rs 10,000 in the series with ZERO entry fee qualifying from the satellite tournaments, while over 100 players won over Rs 1 Lac signifying strong competition across game formats

Expressing his excitement around the successful culmination of IRL, CardBaazi CEO Sunit Warriach, “Since we diversified our model from a mono-game app to a multi-game app, there has been a constant effort put to provide every user with a robust experience. Indian Rummy League was a step towards strengthening that promise to our loyal userbase and reaching the masses. Spurred by IRL, we have been growing at 20per cent QoQ, which is significant considering we revamped our new model of operation in November 2021. I would want to congratulate the winners for their continued perseverance throughout the duration of the league and we will continue to make IRL bigger and better to bring forth such talent to the Indian skilled card gaming community.”

After the successful culmination of IRL, CardBaazi is further expanding its horizons with several new games going LIVE on the application this week such as T23 and Pool 51 among others.
