Qualify for the GPL India for free!

PokerStars India has partnered with the Global Poker League (GPL) to bring you India’s first high-profile poker league. From June 25, you can qualify for free exclusively with PokerStars and play with India's most famous poker pros. You could even win a coveted PokerStars Players NL Hold'em Championship Platinum Pass!

The first season will consist of six teams squaring off against each other in a month-long season which will culminate in a live televised Playoff and Final!

PokerStars India Team Pros Aditya Agarwal and Muskan Sethi will be managing two of the six teams. Each team will also include two seasoned veterans of the game, as well as two online qualifiers - of which you could be one!

The winning team will be awarded ₹1 Crores in prizes in the form of five PSPC Platinum Passes packages (worth ₹20 Lakhs each) to the much-anticipated PokerStars Players NL Hold'em Championship in the Bahamas! The PSPC will take place in January 2019 and has a prize pool of over ₹65 Crores!
