GTO Inspector - My attempt at building an online business

This document explores the hypothesis and my experience running an online business in the Indian poker ecosystem.

What problem are we solving?



Validation approach

  1. Distribute the crude version among the poker stable members (About 10 folks)

    • Everybody loved the tool and wanted a full fledged dashboard. Coaches were willing to pay me to work on this full time (apart from my coaching fees on newer players)
  2. Given the positive feedback from my circle (read: bubble), and the market potential, I went ahead building a MVP of the tool. The idea was to first launch the PLO version and then eventually expand into more popular game formats like NLHE/Tournaments.



I had a couple paths forward after reaching monopoly in the Indian PLO market. I could continue scaling the PLO tool or build newer poker tools for bigger audiences.
