With the official launch of the PokerStars India just hours away, the site through a press release made another exciting announcement with the introduction of well-known Indian poker pro Muskan Sethi (cover image) to its Team Pro rooster. Sethi is one of the most prominent and well-known female poker pros in the country and has been in the news a lot recently and all for the right reasons!

It was in January this year, when she was recognized and felicitated by the honorable President of India Ram Nath Kovind with the “First Ladies” award for being the first Indian woman to play poker professionally.

Just a few months later, the All India Gaming Federation (AIGF), a non-profit organization specializing in policy advocacy and research within India’s gaming industry, made Sethi their official representative.

With over $50,000 in live cashes and $115,000 in online cashes, Sethi is certainly a well-traveled pro who has played poker at some of the toughest fields all across the world but her biggest poker achievement continues to be her appearance in the PokerStars sponsored Shark Cage event in 2014 where she finished runner-up.

In the official press release, Sethi shared her excitement about the new role saying, I feel proud to be a spokesperson for poker in India and I really look forward to promoting this game of skill. Three years ago, I was in the Shark Cage in Barcelona, Spain and here I am now waving the flag for poker and PokerStars.IN. It is exhilarating to show that brains beat brawn at the poker table.

The outspoken Delhi-based poker joins team mate Aditya Agarwal who till date was the only Indian sporting the red spade badge at live events across the world.  

Sethi is expected to play an active role in promoting PokerStars India within the Indian poker community and will contribute to the PokerStars India School by generating engaging video content to help beginners.
