Player in Focus: Danish Shaikh

Player in Focus: Danish Shaikh 0001

With Goa being the epicenter of live poker in India, it is perhaps not surprising that many players have shifted base to the sunny state in order flex their poker muscles at the tables located onboard the many casino ships in Panjim.

This month's Player in Focus is young Danish Shaikh, a player from the state of Goa. His day job with an online poker portal kept him close enough to the action for a while before he started dipping his toes a bit more into the waters of tournament poker. In the past 18 months, he has been stringing together a bunch of scores including two titles, the latest being the Main Event at the PokerGuru Tour's season finale last month. He seems to be getting warmed up for the 2013 season in just the right manner.

Here's a look at Danish Shaikh, this month's PokerNews India Player in Focus:-
