"Indian Federation for the Mind Sport of Poker" is born

30 May 2013

A great new poker initiative has been born in Bombay.

The "Indian Federation for the Mind Sport of Poker" (IFMSP) has been primarily set up to remove the general notion that ‘poker is gambling’. They are working towards getting poker accepted as a game skill and a mind sport in the minds of Indians. Most people who don’t play poker will immediately think of poker to be gambling and those will also agree there is a large element of luck involved in the game. However, poker players will accept that over a large enough period of time, skill will outweigh luck.

The International Federation of Poker is the global governing body for the sport of poker worldwide. They are doing very commendable work to change the general global mindset from ‘poker=gambling’. The first ever European Nations Cup event was held in Paphos, Cyprus during the month of April. IFP showcased its brand new match poker technology and used smart phones instead of physical playing cards. IFP has revolutionised poker worldwide with the introduction of this technology.

IFMSP hopes to set up an Indian poker team to participate in the next international IFP event.

From pokerwala, we will stay tunned to the development of such organization, and wish them the best possible luck.
