Poker in India? Get Goa-ing!

ps_news_thn.jpgYou've played in London. You've played in France. You've played at home in your underpants. Seriously, if you're a real rounder, there probably aren't many places you haven't played.

How about India?

If you've not yet had the chance to go to India to play poker, now you do. PokerStars is offering you the chance to go play in the $1,000 Casino Royale Cup main event June 21-24 and stay at the five-star Goa Marriott Resort & Spa on Goa's luxurious Miramar Beach.

If you make it, you will be playing alongside 2010 Asia Player of the Year and Team PokerStars Pro Bryan Huang.

"This will be my second trip to Goa and I am looking forward to renewing the friendships I made on my first trip last year," Huang said. "The poker action is also fast and furious and players there are known to play any two cards, so expect the tournaments to be action-filled."
