Tried the Poker Face Challenge yet?
One of the wildest challenges that last went viral was the ALS ICE bucket challenge and another such challenge is the India Poker Championship’s – #acethepokerface that has spread like wildfire.
To leverage the audience frenzy that surrounds the return of the much-awaited live poker tournament and to create an exciting touchpoint for people to be a part of the tournament, the India Poker Championship has initiated the thrilling campaign entitled #acethepokerface. The challenge requires a participant to put a scoop of ice-cream in his or her mouth for 10 seconds and maintain a poker face. The challenge may seem easy to perform but it’s difficult to maintain a poker face with a scoop of ice cream in your mouth. You take it and it freezes your brain!
To get this rolling, the individual then nominates a minimum of three people to do the same thing, having only a 24-hour time frame to complete the challenge. Five lucky winners of the poker face challenge would get a fully paid trip to Goa to witness the Indian Poker Championship, starting from January 14, whilst the top entries would get a shout out on the influencer’s page.
The IPC 2020 edition will take place at the Big Daddy Casino in Panjim, Goa, and will be a six-day extravaganza starting from January 14 till January 20, 2020.
Many TikTok and Instagram influencers have taken part in the #acethepokerface #pokerfacechallenge and are also motivating their friends to #acethepokerfacechallenge.
