PokerBaazi’s flagship live tournament series, Baazi Poker Tour (BPT), was conceptualized by PokerBaazi Founder and CEO Navkiran Singh and former PokerBaazi Team Mentor Jasven Saigal in 2016. BPT had made it’s inaugural run onboard Casino Deltin Royale from June 23 to 26, 2016.
The live tour was on a sabbatical for over three years and returned for its second edition at the PokerBaazi LIVE poker room onboard Casino Pride 2. The six-event series ran through October 9 – 14, and the headline event at the stop, i.e., ₹50K Main Event, was championed by Chennai based Bharat Kumar. The other marquee event at the halt, the ₹100K High Roller, declared a champion in Rohit Jinwal.
BPT’s 3rd edition ran through January 2 – 14 and carried a massive ₹7 Crores in guarantees. Integrating the series both online and live, the series marked the debut of BPT Online (January 2 – 5) highlighted by a ₹1 Crore GTD Main Event. BPT Live (January 8 – 14) was hosted at PokerBaazi LIVE poker room in Goa and the ₹35K Main Event ₹2 Crores GTD was taken down by Gautam Sachdeva for ₹43.21 Lakhs!
