Staff Staff

Poker Sports League (PSL) has announced its return for a fifth season. The upcoming season will have a prize pool of a whopping ?1.5 crore, as PSL 2023 promises an exhilarating showdown with excitement sweeping across pro poker players and enthusiasts in India.

PSL 2023 has on-boarded Pocket52, a leading online poker gaming app, as its title sponsor. The collaboration is a step forward to provide a secure and fantastic gaming experience to the players in the world’s biggest poker league.

As the official title sponsor of PSL Season 5, Pocket52 will provide players with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to compete in the league. Anybody who knows poker and wants to be a part of the tournament just need to download the Pocket52 app and register for maximum 6 of the 31 online qualifier tournaments, which are completely free of charge and open to all till June 25, 2023.

Pranav Bagai, CEO and Founder of Poker Sports League, said:

As the world’s largest poker league in terms of prize pool and participation, PSL has taken the game of poker to a new level with its unique team-based format that sportifies the game. It’s a true test of skill and strategy, where each team has a balance of professionals and amateurs, giving everyone an equal opportunity to shine at the highest level – for FREE. 

With our fifth edition on the cards, I am equally happy and excited to have Pocket52 as our title sponsor since our visions are aligned in terms of bringing poker to the masses – responsibly. We are sure that this collaboration will give a great opportunity to a wide range of poker aspirants.

Our team-based format and unique approach to the game have captured the imagination of players and fans alike since we are giving every single poker player an equal shot at glory. We invite everyone to join us for an unforgettable journey into the world of poker sports and be a part of the future of online gaming. This could be the first step for many amateur and enthusiasts to play with pro-poker players as part of their teams and get hands-on training from the best players in India – to take their game to the next level.

Nitesh Salvi, Director and Founder, Pocket52, said:

At Pocket52, we are passionate about the game of poker and are always seeking new ways to enhance player experiences. With the new revamped app, players can expect a seamless and engaging experience like never before. The team format adds a new level of excitement to the game, encouraging teamwork and strategy. As a responsible gaming platform, we are proud to be a part of an event that prioritises fair play and responsible gaming practices. We are confident that this year’s tournament will be a huge success and we invite our community of players, from beginners to professionals, to join us in this journey of pushing our limits and exploring the exciting dimensions of the poker industry.

The qualifiers on Pocket52 have been designed to award leaderboard points to participants based on their ranking in each tournament. Players ranking in the top 1,000 positions of this scoreboard stand the chance of winning prizes worth ?50 lakh. The deal is far more rewarding for the top 36 players on the leaderboard, who will secure a guaranteed place in one of the six teams. The base price for each qualifier will be ?50,000, and Pocket52 has sweetened the deal for the top 36 players by adding ?50,000 worth of tournament tickets. 

The live auction among the six teams will take place in Goa on July 8, followed by the virtual matches from July 22 to August 10, allowing players to compete from the comfort of their homes. The league will culminate into a grand finale at a live location between August 16 and 20, where the champions of Pocket52 Poker Sports League Season 5 will be crowned.

The auction, virtual matches and the live finale is set to be broadcast on one of India’s leading OTT platforms.
