Teen Patti, though not as popular as its cousin Poker, has gathered quite a significant following. It has in fact reached the point wherein they have their own big tournaments. As its answer to the World Series of Poker (WSOP), the Teen Patti world has come up with the World Series of Teen Patti/Three Card (WSOT). It is presented by Taj Systems. As such, we could say without a doubt that there are indeed professional Teen Patti players today.

Let us take a look at some of the more prominent players of Teen Patti.

The person to hold the distinction of being the first ever to win a World Series of Teen Patti seat is Ranjit Samra. He is from Toronto, Canada and he won his seat in a live Teen Patti tournament following a golf tourney sponsored by TeenPatti.

Alladina Shanawaz hails from Toronto, Canada. He won a seat to play in the World Series of Teen Patti in the first qualifier event in Toronto. This was in October of 2006.

Then there is Krishan Mehra. Just like Alladina Shanawaz, this Teen Patti player comes from Toronto, Canada. He also won a seat to play in the World Series of Teen Patti in the first qualifier event in Toronto. This occurred on the same day as Shawanaz won his seat!

Girish Sharma won his seat to the World Series of Teen Patti in a slightly different way from that of Mehra’s and Shanawaz’s. Sharma actually got his seat to the World Series of Teen Patti by outbidding all the other contenders during a charity auction at the Palm Springs Golf Tournament. Talk about giving to a good cause while having fun!

As this game is relatively new to the scene, there are not as many high profile professional players to date. Unlike the WSOP, where prolific players abound, WSOT still has some ways to go before reaching the same status. It is thus a good opportunity for you out there with some skills at Teen Patti. Anyone with skill and passion can stat making a name for himself in this relatively new game. It is more or less like an equal playing field, with not much established contenders. So why not sharpen them up and try to get a seat at the WSOT? Who knows, you just may be a pro in the making?
