On September 27, PokerBaazi set an even higher benchmark for Indian poker, as the country’s top poker site finally unveiled the BIG anniversary surprise!
PokerBaazi will be turning eight in October. Marking the turn of years, it`s coming out with a firecracker tournament – the G.O.A.T that hits the platform on October 30 and will make an eight-day run till November 6.
G.O.A.T in the short form of “Greatest of all Times.” In poker, we’ve seen the word being used for some of the most enigmatic players in the game. The just-announced G.O.A.T offers players a singular opportunity to become just that.
Featuring a never-before-seen prize pool guarantee of ₹7 Crores at only ₹11,000, the G.O.A.T is the biggest-ever online poker tournament to be hosted in India and, in Baazi-speak, the “Greatest of All Tournaments!”
The poker community was already aware that something massive for MTT players was in the works when PokerBaazi announced the ₹7 Crores GTD Anniversary Cash Leaderboards last week – the brand’s biggest-ever cash game leaderboard promotion.
The G.O.A.T is the first real opportunity for you to prove your poker skills and walk away with the heaviest paycheque any poker player has ever won in a poker tournament in India.
The brand’s announcement on social media came on September 27 with a snappy music video. Since then, the G.O.A.T is all the Indian player circuit is talking about!

The G.O.A.T will run eight Qualifiers, one daily between October 30 and November 3, and offers unmatched value with a 7,000-entry guarantee at a ₹11,000 buy-in. All the qualifying stacks will converge for the grand finale, scheduled to begin at 9 PM on November 6.
There’s over a month to go for the G.O.A.T, giving poker players ample time to prepare. And playing this massive tournament will undoubtedly be every poker player’s dream. To ensure the ₹11,000 buy-in wallet pinch is minimal, PokerBaazi will be running an exhaustive schedule of Daily Qualifiers, aka satellites, and you could get in through Qualifiers starting as little ₹1. The satellites will be running daily, round-the-clock, so you can choose to play on your preferred time slots! Stay tuned for a full-blown satellite schedule expected to come out soon.
The video on the site says it all.

PokerBaazi – Offering the Best & Biggest-Ever MTTs
PokerBaazi’s rise in the online poker space since its launch on October 23, 2014, has been nothing short of phenomenal. With pioneers like CEO and founder Navkiran Singh at the helm, the PokerBaazi team has endeavored to better its offerings for cash game and tournament players. This is why the G.O.A.T is a deserving celebration for the Baazi team and the Baazigars – the players!
Talking about the brand turning eight and the G.O.A.T, Singh, an avid poker player himself, said, “With India marching ahead in building its technology arsenal and fast progressing in its infrastructure, especially with the rollout of 5G, we foresee an immense growth in product-led startups in our country. Poker for sure is a sunrise segment within the larger gaming ecosystem.”
He added, “It gives me immense pride that we as a team have built this solid product in these eight years, and now, as poker is taking shape as a sports category in India, we need events that people will look forward to playing. I am sure that India will see many poker GOATs in the time to come, and hence our new tournament is aptly coined. I am certain that the poker industry will grow exponentially in the next 5 years. This celebration stands for the milestones we have achieved as an industry and the users who made this possible.”
The brand, a czar in the Indian gaming space, has steadily upped the game over time, unleashing a trend-setting slew of tournaments. PokerBaazi is a name synonymous with bringing on the “biggest-ever” online poker tournaments to the players. In 2017, the brand announced India’s first-ever ₹1 Crore guaranteed tournament – The MoneyMaker, following it up with another innovative and big-ticket MTT offering, the ₹2 Crores GTD The Game Changer.
The brand continued to amp up the show, and in January 2020, it announced the first-ever The EndBoss, promising a never-seen-before ₹5 Crores! The EndBoss has run three editions, with Abhishek Maheshwari, Ishaan Chugh, and Jitendra Gadhwal claiming the prestigious title. The EndBoss remained India’s biggest-ever online poker tournament for over two years, i.e., before the G.O.A.T set the benchmark even higher!
Matching the superlative lineup of promotions, the brand has also aggressively deepened its range of MTT offerings. While there is a comprehensive daily MTT schedule for everyone – regs and even the mid and low-stakes players, the MoneyMaker, the country`s only 1 flight ₹1 Crore GTD tournament, has become a monthly staple, crowning a winner on the first of every month.
With the G.O.A.T, PokerBaazi has once again proved it’s a brand to be trusted, especially for its passion for delivering the best poker experience to players!
