Zarvan Tumboli is a professional poker player from India. He currently ranks 14th in India’s All-Time Money List.

Tumboli’s debut finish in a live poker tournament happened in October 2015 in Panjim, India. He finished 1st at the India Poker Championship (IPC) and won $7,226.

However, the lack of tournament opportunities in his native country drove him to test his skills elsewhere. In June 2017, he won two titles in Macau, one at the Asian Poker Tour (APT) circuit for $9,527 and another at the Asia Championship of Poker – Platinum Series XIX (ACOP) for $6,480.

A month later, back in Panjim, India, he scored his first five-figure cash of $23,825 for placing 3rd at a High Roller event in the Deltin Poker Tournament.

Tumboli continued travelling for poker, eventually snagging another title in September 2018, this time in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam at a No Limit Hold’em side event of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Vietnam for $10,629.

In January 2020, he won $43,276, nearly double his previous best live cash, for his runner-up finish at a High Roller event of the IPC in Goa, India. 

Post-pandemic success

When live poker resumed in 2022 following the global health pandemic, Tumboli came out swinging. He copped another title at a High Roller event of the Baazi Poker Tour (BPT), March 2022, in Goa, India. The win gave him another personal best cash of $65,810.

May 2022 saw him returning to Vietnam for another huge win and another best live cash, which stands to date. He outlasted the competition at the WPT Main Event for $131,394.

In 2023, more deep runs and five figure scores. He added a local Hanoi, Vietnam title – VSOP Main Event for $52K then closed the year with a 7th place finish at the Asian Poker Festival Main Event for another $18,300.
