The life of a professional poker player by Nikita Luther
Nikita represents India’s largest Poker website Adda52.com and is working towards inspiring, guiding and encouraging Indian woman to take up professional poker.
She says, “I first started playing free online poker at college to understand the game. I kept learning new things, watching videos and mastering the game. I began my foray in the world of online poker with small amounts of money”
Nikita is a role model for many and she is passionate about transforming people’s perception about the game. She wants to break the myths around poker and prove that it is not a game of chance but a game of skill which involves intricate concepts of mathematics, probability, game theory, strategy and psychology.
“I may not have a regular 9 to 5 job but I work hard on my game. I exercise, eat right and meditate to improve my focus. Before playing any game, it is important for me to be in the right state of mind. Poker requires great skill and concentration”.
