PokerStars – World’s Largest Online Poker Room

PokerStars is one of the leading Internet Poker Software company in the world.  It was founded by Isai Scheinberand his son, Mark in 2000.  They now have huge selection of Poker Games, where people across the globe play various games for real or play money. It’s basically a place where there is non-stop action.  PokerStars recently hosted a Poker evening with one of the Top Poker Player of the world, Aditya Agarwal.  I have seen videos of Pokers being played on large scale with huge bets and it fascinated me.  The opportunity to meet an expert was very special.PokerStar-1

Event Updates

During the meet there were multiple tables with Aditya and few other Poker experts like Gokul, sharing lots of info about the game to inspire us.

They shared info from basic including – rule of the game, # of players, role of dealer, cards shuffling & distribution to players, folding, betting, show, and many more things.

Explained the selection of cards, that needs to be with a player to win over the opponent.  They shared more info on – Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Four of Kind, Full House, Flush, Straight, Three of a kind, Two Pair, One Pair, High Card. Ideally, every player would aim to get the Royal Flush and be the ultimate winner among the max 9 players that can participate.  But that combination of cards is rare and may happen once in bluemoon.

Shared info about the way people try bluffing and let the other players doubt their own cards and end up folding from a winning position.  Even when people are having bad cards and are sure to lose the money, they might keep a calm face & never reveal how they feel about it.  That is what is popularly referred as ‘Poker Face‘.

We all played 3-4 games with fake coins.  During the first 2 games, I was able to win courtesy of ‘One Pair’ and ‘Two Pair’.  In another game, I was almost about to win but ended losing as the opponent had a higher priority combination, ‘Straight’.  The entire gaming experience was fun, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I also got a chance to discuss at length with Aditya Agarwal to understanding about – his experience playing Poker, highest price money earned, need for becoming a winning player, learning from mistake and many more thing.PokerStar-Logo
