As always, support for the brand has been tremendous. Players from India have been one of the largest forces at nearly every WPT event in Asia, and on homeland (or waters),  players from all over the country have descended. Among the biggest names already seen were WSOP bracelet winners Abhinav Iyer and Aditya Sushant, 2022 WPT Prime Vietnam champion Zarvan Tumboli, top pro Aditya Agarwal, joined by Raju Jaruplavath, Muskan Sethi, Paawan Bansal, Lakshpal Singh, to mention a few.

In the coming days, players hope to see past WPT India Main Event champions in the field: Ashish Munot, Nikunj Jhunjhunwala, and Vikash Mantri.
