The Vegas season is more than what every poker player dreams of. This time around, PokerBaazi.com bombarded us with one after another mega promotion, giving away Vegas trips in prizes. The best and the unique part about these promotions was that each and every category of players had a fair chance to take home a Vegas package. It all started with two concurrent vegas promotions, The Vegas Challenge & Vegas VIP Race.
The Vegas Challenge had three exciting challenges a) Completing a stack challenge on 5/10 to 50/100 tables b) Getting 5 paid places in tournaments & c) playing 10K hands. It was surprizing to see the first Vegas package being booked in the first three days itself! Hats off to Prateek Mishra ‘pratmish’ for this amazing feat. Two other Vegas packages in this promotion were soon to follow. Rohit Begwani & Rony Chowdhury both showed that there can be a marathon on the poker tables as well. Apart from the top 3 who won Vegas packages worth 3 LAC each, there were 7 more prizes including two iPhones & five 50K Bankrolls. I congratulate all these winners for completing all three challenges in such a short span.
The Vegas VIP Race, on the other hand, was for the high stakes players as the target involved generating 12 LAC VIP points. I was pleased to see Rahul Mittal, my fellow Bangalorean, & Abhigya Sagar, both noted players in the circuit, completing the target & taking away Vegas packages worth 4 LAC each. The next three prizes in this race are still open and I can see a those getting filled up soon.
With 5 Vegas packages being won in the first half of the month, PokerBaazi came up with another big promotion, adding 3 more Vegas packages worth 3 LAC each. The Vegas Tournament Challenge, as the name suggests, is a special challenge where you have to put your tournament skills to use and win two 2 LAC GTD Vegas Special tournaments happening every day at 10.30 PM from 17th to 30th April. If you are reading this & think this is something out of this world and not achievable, you would be amazed to know that not just one but two Baazigars have already achieved this. I must congratulate Akshay Nasa ‘sherlock52’ & Amit Singh ‘pokman875’ for proving what Baazigars are capable of. You also have to generate 1 LAC VIP points in the Vegas Tournament Challenge to win a Vegas package.
All in all, I can see a great Vegas trip coming up this summer. Vegas, beware!
There are 6 more Vegas Special tournaments to go. This is going to be as exciting as it can be. Join in with me and let’s take this challenge.
