According to Harsh Kapoor “ I am proud of Siddhanth and poker high for doing this, also I love the game and will be playing this tournament”.
Bollywood unites for humanity allowing the assimilation of our star studded game environment pitting itself against some of the top amateur poker players from around the country. The game is open to all poker players, but even observers will get to interact with some high-level card players with Bollywood pedigree. Participants from various poker platforms and many high-level poker high players will be taking part.
