Speaking on the association, Mr. Gaurav Gaggar, promoter, Poker High shares, “ Poker is a great a way to bring everybody together. We are here to select the best individual and the best Corporate team to show their mental skills.  If you have the brains and the discipline, you can participate in Corporate Poker League at Legends Cup this year where age, size, gender doesn’t matter. It takes competitive spirits, strategic minds and an unwavering focus to win in today’s business world and what better than Poker to achieve the same. I started my career with a leading international bank. In an informal setting all new joinees played poker with the international heads of treasury, financial control, planning, compliance, and audit. The new joinees got placed into their roles in the bank basis the way the played poker. Of course it wasn’t the only criteria to determine the roles, it certainly was a great way to know the characteristics of the new joinees. And it was great way for people to know each other.”
