PokerHigh To Host Special Tournament for Indian Lawyers
A brand-new online tournament awaits Indian poker players and enthusiasts who have a law background.
Called the “Justice Mudgal Championship“, this special poker tournament is set to take place on September 15 at one of India’s top online poker websites Poker High.
This poker tournament is exclusive for lawyers, law students and interns, as well as in-house counsels with the backing of retired Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court Mukul Mudgal.
Mudgal has long been a proponent for a regulated gaming market in India. His son, Dhaval Mudgal, is among the country’s most popular and celebrated poker pros. Justice Mudgal presently heads the FIFA Governance and Review Committee. Few years back, he led an inquiry into the spot-fixing scandal in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Justice Mudgal Championship will take place September 15, from 5pm onwards and has a buy-in of Rs. 4,000. Free daily satellites will also be running on PokerHigh from September 6-13. Players may also take part in a Rs. 500 buy-in satellite to the Main Event which scheduled for September 14.
Players with a law background will compete for Rs. 2 lakhs in total prize pool, with Rs. 1 lakh plus the Justice Mudgal Championship trophy all going to the ultimate winner.
The tournament has been organised not just for fun and leisure but also for charitable causes, as the proceeds from entry fees surpassing Rs. 2 lakhs will go towards Romil Seva Sanstha, a not-for-profit English medium school personally chosen by Justice Mudgal.
This unique initiative is aimed at engaging members of India’s legal community and bringing them all together for a beautiful mind sport that does not go too far from their profession. At the same time, they will be playing to help disadvantaged students achieve their dreams. It is also another way for the poker proponents to show India’s lawyers that poker is not gambling but a mind spot.
