Q. What kind of effect do you think the online gaming boom has had on the integrity of the game?
I think Online Poker Games in India have helped new players learn the game aesthetics very quickly. The competition is ever-increasing and it takes no time for the meta to change. Players learn quickly, but to be a winning player they still have to bring their A-game.

Q. What is it like to play on Pocket52? How has been your experience with Pocket Vault?
