The tournament

The tournament will take place from 2nd to 4th September in the Poker Room of the cruise ship. A total of three tournaments will be played, all of them cash games. Poker is growing in popularity among gamblers in India and players can gain entry to the tournament by going online at PokerStars.com.

Players can qualify for the event by participating in Poker Stars’ online satellites for a chance to qualify for the main event with a prize package of almost $1800 that includes a buy-in ticket to the main event, travel expenses, accommodation for three nights and breakfast at the Taj Vivanta, a 5-star hotel in Panjim, Goa.
