Aditya Agarwal

Aditya Agarwal

Poker player Aditya Agarwal spent his childhood and school years in Darjeeling, India. He moved to the US to study at Drexel University, first enrolling for a degree in Engineering, before switching to Marketing. Just like students at every other college across America in 2003, Aditya and his peers saw poker being played on TV for millions of dollars, and they wanted in on the action. By the time Aditya graduated, he was already a full-time poker pro.  


Aditya has since had great success online, cashing for more than four million dollars in the biggest PokerStars tournaments. Highlights include wins in the notoriously tough $100 Rebuy tourney, plus several other high-profile results. He’s also performed well in live tournaments, cashing in the World Series Main Event several times, including top 100 finishes in 2008 and 2015. Other results include a deep run at EPT Barcelona in 2007 for $34,313, plus numerous wins and final table appearances in events across India.

Having played online at PokerStars since 2004, becoming a member of the team has seen Aditya come full circle, and he claims it to be the pinnacle of his career so far. He has stated how he wants to use his role as ambassador as a way of promoting poker in India, helping to establish the game as a professional sport across the country, and to inspire the next generation of players.

Aditya is a member of Team PokerStars Pro, and when he isn’t spreading his love of poker at the cash game tables and local tourneys in India, you can find him playing online under the screen name ‘Adi Agarwal’.
