It wasn’t just another Friday on 6th September. This time, instead of heading home/bars with their friends, people spent their Friday evening at Smaaash Gurgaon. 9stacks in collaboration with Smaaash had organized the biggest poker game night- The Vegas Affair. More than 100 poker enthusiasts had turned up at the event to socialize and enjoy a night full of poker, beer, and snacks.
The warmup tournament with a prize pool of Rs 1000 was an introductory round for the players to get comfortable with our interface and the gameplay. The next two tournaments were the Pre-finals with a prize pool of Rs 3000 and Rs 5000 respectively. As the tournaments progressed, we saw everyone engrossed in their phones and chilling while playing poker.
As we moved towards the finale, we saw the players getting excited about the final showdown. The cherry on the cake was when a live performance by local artists started. The crowd sang songs and geared up for the final tournament. The prize pool of the final tournament was Rs 9000. A total of 95 players played the tournament with Suhana Ali winning the tournament. She was awarded the 9stacks merchandise which comprised of a T-shirt, card decks and mobile grippers. Now that is what we call playing poker 9stacks style.
Check out the event video and stay tuned for our upcoming events.
