We had to educate banks, investors and various partners about the legality of games of skill such as poker. It was a two pronged battle". The team was able to persuade everyone inchmeal about how games of skill are different from gambling and how poker is classified as a game of skill in India just like any other skill game such as Chess, Pool or Golf.

1:Great and really inspirational article! Like chess, poker should be considered as a mind game, not gambling. It is one of the best games for brain exercise which sharpen observation and decision-making skills. Adda52.com is a great online poker website in India which is putting best of its efforts to ensure that poker gets the recognition and attention it deserves.
