The CEO of PSL, Pranav Bagai said that “The journey of the league has been a roller coaster ride and initially many could not believe that the league would materialise into something as large as other sports leagues in the country. The never seen before structures and massive prize pool kept the adrenaline rush going for the players along with a chance to make some serious money. On closing our first season with a splendid grand finale, we are sure that this is definitely not a one-and-done season and we have plans to come up with season two next year.” Pranav Bagai promises to return with the second season of the Poker Sports League.
