About the founders

What Poker means to me?

All I feel about the game is summarized in one quote “Poker is to cards what Jazz is to music”

My Story

I think everyone in life is seeking a fix. For some it is money, for some it is fame or for some it is even the comfort of routine drudgery.
For me, It was always about adventure. I feel more connected to life when I am being challenged. On my business trips to America, what started out as a cursory glance into the game of poker , soon turned into a passionate “fix” . Apparently , I turned out to very good in the game and went on to win the World Professional Tour in Sri Lanka or maybe I just got lucky 😉

After a heart to heart conversation with Dad, I decided to change this “fix” of mine into a small mission of mine and decided to launch Poker Magnet. I feel disappointed when the game is equated to gambling and i want to change that. For me, Poker feels a lot like lifting weights with your mind.When i see someone make serious money in this game, I feel I own a small part in that joy.
