PokerBaazi And SpartanPoker Tournaments To Aid Kerala Flood Victims
Kerala is facing its biggest flood calamity in over 100 years. The worst natural calamity in the state's history has seen over 360 people losing their lives as per reports. Over 1500 relief camps have been set up which are temporarily housing over 2.23 Lakh people. Support from the Army, government agencies, corporates and NGOs from across India are pitching in to provide aid to over 10 Lakh people who have been displaced.
The Indian poker community is doing its’ bit by providing aid in whichever way possible. Many players have decided to donate their winnings (and more) towards the rehabilitation. As part of a humanitarian initiative, two of the biggest poker sites of India, TheSpartanPoker and PokerBaazi are organizing 2 tournaments to contribute to flood relief in Kerala.
