Hey guys,let me introduce myself in the 1st blog. My name is Aditya Agarwal and i stay in the city of joy Kolkata and i am a final year engineering student specializing in Information Technology from Heritage Institute of Technology, Kolkata. My poker alias is mastermind and i would be pretty much thrilled to tell you guys how i started off with the wonderful game of poker.
I started playing poker back in the year 2007 when I had made a facebook account and came across the Texas Hold’em application while browsing it.I knew nothing about the game then and started playing the game with free chips that one gets after logging in the application. Gradually i gained interest in the game when i came to know about the rules of the game and found out that it is way more skilled than the Indian “teen patti “. After learning the game i taught my friends and started playing home games with ₹200 Buy in and blinds 2/4. Then we happen to meet few poker players in Kolkata itself who knew the game from a very long time and gradually i went on developing my skills playing along with them.I even won the very first poker tournament in Kolkata which had like 20 entrants.
Much has changed since then as the poker players in India has grown exponentially and with it the stakes have also grown bigger and bigger.As far as i am concerned i am right now playing home games in Kolkata with 5000 Buy in. I often travel to Goa for playing the tournaments held at Casino Royale and i have been doing good there.I also started playing online poker tournaments this year and i hope that i would achieve some milestones in the online world of poker .I think this pretty much sums up my poker story.
