‘This Week That Year’ is an article series that will provide ‘a blast from the past’ in poker. Here we will feature some memorable events that happened in poker during a particular week in a previous year. From the smaller poker events that hardly anyone noticed to the big poker extravaganzas, we will give you a trip down poker history; week by week.
The game will be played on Adda52.com tables which is India’s first real cash online poker site. Joining Adda52.com is ‘The Shark.in’, India’s premier poker league.
