Two extremely noteworthy names in the high stakes poker scene, Patrik Antonius and David Benyamine have confirmed their presence at the Big Daddy Casino in Goa to play the high stakes cash game festival taking place from November 13-17.
The poker boom in India is now and anybody who follows poker will scream at the thought of either one of these remarkable players coming to their hometown. To have both of them onboard the same ship, is a dream come true!
Patrik is known for frequenting THE highest stake games all over the world and takes part in high roller tournaments as well. His live tournament winnings are over 12 million dollars and he’s involved himself many a time in pots over 500,000$, so he will not be afraid to splash around, once he sets foot on the coastal region of Panjim.
David Benyamine, a professional tennis and billiards player in his prime, has won millions on online poker sites such as Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker, still plays a variety of games, apart from Hold’em and PLO and travels the world. He managed to win over 7 million dollars in live tournaments as well.
Only recently, we witnessed the Instagram king Dan Bilzerian come to our mother nation to play the game of poker and along with it, came a ton of fan following. Huge crowds of people travelled from all over India to come see the star in action and he’s said to have played a high stakes game and apparently won an amount just shy of seven figures.
To give you a glimpse of just how aggressive Patrik and David are, here is a video of them playing a 230,000$ pot, which is equivalent to a whopping 1.62 crores.
With all this action, there’s almost little to no reason why people shouldn’t go to Goa and try to win some extra cash for themselves. If there is ever a time to do so, it is now.
