Pratibha, a computer science engineer, started her professional poker career in June 2017. In her final year of ‌college, she joined a poker stable— an informal group that coaches aspiring players. Since learning poker competently demanded a full-time commitment, Pratibha took a leap of faith. She left her job placement as a software developer at Adobe Systems to pursue her poker dream. Ever since then, there has been no looking back for her. Starting from a very young age, she quickly increased the stakes and is now playing at the highest stakes in the country.

Pratibha has also represented and won various awards internationally at the Asian Nations Cup held in Bangkok and Oxford, London. She has also been awarded ‌Player of the League in several such competitions. In addition to that, she was also a part of the televised league called ‘MatchPoker’, which was showcased on MTV, where her team won 4 out of 5 consecutive years.

She also holds a WPT trophy in the WPT 6-Max India championship held on Adda52.

Pratibha is primarily an online high-stakes cash game player who likes to travel to get in on her quota of live games at various casinos worldwide to live the poker dream. Along with being a regular at the online cash game tables, she is all set for her new association with Adda52 as their Game Ambassador and writing a new chapter of success.
