The nine women players are from all different parts of India and all have various trades and positions outside poker. These roles include journalists and social workers. 9stack have dubbed as the women in poker as the ‘Nine Missketeers’.
The Missketeers are made up of Muskan Sethi (team leader), Radhika Mahalingaiah, Chandni Malik, Simrit Tiwana, Rupal Bansal, Lavanya Thota, Ritu Chadha, Prashaste Sinha and Sakshi Misra.
This is a good move for women in poker with Indian Women Poker Players standing up. It is a big help to bring equality to the game, especially in such a male dominated up and coming poker country. Women’s Poker World hopes to see more of the Nine Missketeers at the tables, maybe over the coming 2018 WSOP.
