There's been plenty of talk about China being the next poker market to explode but little has been heard about its giant Asian neighbour India. Players will get the chance the chance to enjoy top class tournament action in Goa this June in the form of the Casino Royale Cup.

Satellites for the Main Event are now up and running at PokerStars with packages worth $1,740 up for grabs.

One person definitely taking part will be Bryan Huang. "This will be my second trip to Goa and I am looking forward to renewing the friendships I made on my first trip last year. The poker action is also fast and furious and players there are known to play any 2 cards so expect the tournaments to be action filled!"

Danny McDonagh, PokerStars Director of Live Operations for Asia-Pacific added, "Poker is on the rise in India and PokerStars is honoured to support this fantastic event in Goa. The Indian poker community is very hospitable and Phil Sanders and Craig Wildman run a great operation on the Casino Royale."
