The traffic on Pokerstars.IN started off quite slowly but it has been growing steadily every month. As the whole Indian market is still taking its first steps, the figures are low compared to potential it has in few years. Right now the daily peak figures are around 3.000 real-money players online and 250 players in cash tables. Most of the tables are micro and small stakes no limit hold’em. There are players in Pot limit Omaha tables as well but action is still hard to find in other Omaha games or Mixed games.
The range of buy-ins varies from Rs. 80 to Rs. 100.000 so there are limits for every taste. The traffic in limits exceeding Rs 10.000 is not daily but bigger games are running from time to time.
When it comes to tournaments, the size of the tournaments are nothing like that of the Pokerstars original site but the guarantees are increasing along the player figures. Right now tournament buy-ins range from Rs. 30 to Rs. 5.000. About 90% of the tournaments are NL Hold’em but there are few PLO tournaments as well. Sunday Special is their current weekly flagship tourney with guarantee of Rs. 350.000.
There are also Spin & Go tournaments on offer every day. With buy-ins ranging from RS. 10 to RS. 500, and a randomized prize pool between 2x and 10,000x the buy-in, these super-fast three-player tournaments launch as soon as enough people have sat at the table.
