A left-handed batsman and a spin bowler, Raina will anchor the brand and help in creating a higher brand recall amongst the key target audience. “During the lockdown, we all learned a lot of new things and I for one picked up playing poker online on 9stacks. It’s a fun game of skill that makes you think and apply numerous strategies to win,” Raina said. “I am thoroughly excited now to associate with the 9stacks poker platform and look forward to working closely with the brand in the coming months.”
Founded by Sudhir Kamath, Pratik Kumar and Rishab Mathur in 2017, 9stacks claims of over 32 million users.
“Suresh Raina is an inspiration to millions of Indians. His skill as a sportsperson is a result of years of practice, passion, understanding of the game and hard-work and this skill has made him win many matches for India and become the champion that he is,” said Pratik Kumar.
“Poker is a mind sport, and like any other sport requires skill, hours of practice, studying, mathematics and strategy to master the game. We are delighted to associate with Suresh Raina who can be a true ambassador of the game and promote poker as a mind sport to a wider audience.”
