Tarun Goyal was tired of trying to boost his income. He was in several grueling jobs. He tried to climb the corporate ladder. But company politics and bureaucracy was too much for him. He was living in India, where per capita income is hardly $1000, and chances to boost income and get rewarded for skills are scarce. Goyal was in a soul-sucking IT job in Bangalore. After a few months, he left Bangalore and moved to Bhatinda to start his own business. Things didn’t work out for him in the new city.

One day, Goyal decided to turn his life around once and for all. He opened famous poker website Adda52.com and signed up. Goyal already had some poker skills. He also researched and worked on his skills and started putting in small amounts of money. Soon after, he was converting hundreds into thousands.
