Actor-host Rannvijay Singh has admitted that poker is his guilty pleasure. However, he does not regret playing and is quite proud of it as he believes it has “taught him a lot of patience and reading game."
The former MTV VJ, who has been selected as the Chief Guest of the IPC Awards Ceremony which features poker aficionados being honoured, said in a statement "I have always believed in supporting excellence, in any and every part of life. This time I have got an opportunity to honour excellence in the Poker industry and I am equally excited as much as the fans or the people are.
"I am proud to say poker is my guilty pleasure, it has taught me so much about patience and reading people. I hope the players I will meet at the awards can teach me a trick or two..."
Other than Ranvijay, Shibani Dandekar will co-host the event. Talking about the event she said, Shibani said: "I have hosted and attended a lot of awards and events but this is my first-ever poker awards night, I am very excited to be a part of the IPC Awards.
"I have played a lot of poker with family and friends in friendly games and now I enjoy playing online whenever I can. I hope to meet these poker pros and pick up a few tips on how to ace the game."
