To the ones who’ve been with us from the very beginning, 2020 was a tumultuous year of sorts. As an exhausted and worn-out year finally rattles into the pitstop after countless laps around the roughest terrain, it’s safe to say we’re now looking forward to getting behind the wheel of something new!
But before you start browsing what 2021 has to offer in poker, online and live, we’ve got some pretty exciting news to share with you! We are thrilled to announce that your leading news portal for poker is merging with one of the best content providers, which would now be an exclusive addition and another feather to India’s top poker platform, Pokerbaazi.
That’s right! India Poker News (popularly known as IPN by poker enthusiasts) is blending its creative juices with Pokershots, and would now be an official Pokerbaazi media platform for all things poker.
What does this mean for the readers?
Imagine your favourite poker content and world class poker tournament deets and more all in one place, with the push of a button. That means – poker humour in the form of memes, comics, GIFs, first class poker content in the form of latest developments around the Indian Poker Industry, informational pieces & strategy blogs, tournament updates, offers and deals, and lots more we’ll be releasing soon to you patrons. We assure you, you don’t have to go hunting for kickass poker swag anywhere else.

Our entire team (Pokershots + IPN) is now a part of the Baazi family! Since we’re officially a Baazi undertaking with this merger, expect all things Baazi from here on now on our portal. We would now be working as an even more dedicated team with talented and brilliant minds joining forces together to make Baazi a seamless and hassle free experience for you and for us.
The story continues…
Less than a decade ago, the Pokerbaazi Founders set out to create a legacy, all the while breaking stereotypical norms on poker. Along the way, they also solved a big problem for making poker accessible not just to the rich and the known but also the ones who truly loved the game for what it was without investing big bucks. This is also Pokerbaazi’s mission.
Joining forces with a portal like India Poker News, under the guidance and mentorship of Pokerbaazi, is what takes us into the next chapter in our storybook. Expressing his views on the acquisition, Varun Ganjoo, Co-founder & Marketing Director of Baazi Games, parent group of PokerBaazi.com said, “At PokerBaazi.com we are constantly improvising and exploring ways of engaging with our users.
Understanding the need for a robust content arm, we are excited to announce this acquisition, which is a step in the right direction, providing users with a world full of poker information and enabling them to expand their horizons. Through this integration, Indian Poker News promises to promote the poker ecosystem by keeping the readers informed, enlightened and entertained on a real time basis with interesting stories from the world of Poker.”
He added, “Poker is an emerging sport in India, and we have witnessed many players who have showcased outstanding performance in the sport at national as well as international levels, through Indian Poker News we aim to bring out their stories for inspiring upcoming poker players.”
Stayed tuned to see where our growth and innovation takes us from here.
