  • Check out this piece from Quartz India highlighting the emerging poker market there.

The poker boom as Americans know it was started when Chris Moneymaker won the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event, broadcast for all to see on ESPN. From there, the fire quickly spread as Texas hold'em became seemingly a global craze.

What many don't realize is that there are still parts of the world experiencing their own mini-booms. This was the case a few years back when the Macau poker market exploded, and the latest area dealing with its own poker boom is India.

Over at Quartz India, Neha J. Hiranandani took a look at the emerging poker market in the world's second-most populous country. Though a few of the story's details are a little off-base — one player asserts that nobody wins long-term — the conclusion the author seems to draw is sensible to many, particularly Americans who are still struggling to drag poker out of the shadows.
