29th January, New Delhi: Adda52 has been revolutionizing India’s online poker industry by bringing super-value tournaments with huge prize pools for its participants. 2018 turned out to be a milestone year, as the poker site not only signed the cricket superstar and ace batsman Chris Gayle as the brand ambassador but also rolled out some of the significant and industry-changing tournaments. One of the biggest tournaments was the 'Gayle Storm', launched in August by Adda52’s brand ambassador Chris Gayle, which was unique, because of low buy-in and much higher prize money.

So far, in the 6-month run on Adda52, a total of 4 editions of the tournament have been hosted and INR 2.25 Crore+ in prize money has been given out. The first Gayle Storm took place on 5th August 2018 and it went down as the biggest online event in India’s poker history. It drew 2000+ entries and awarded INR 12.17 Lac to the winner Dinesh Kumar aka ‘danny_durr’, who incidentally had won a free ticket to enter the tournament. After an enormous response from the poker community, Adda52 increased the guaranteed prize pool to a whopping INR 75 Lac for the 2nd edition, which took place on 7th October 2018 and it was won by Rahul Melwani aka ‘therealslowroller’, outlasting a massive 2457-entry field. Towards the end of 2018, the tournament saw its 3rd and 4th editions being organized with Sanish Chhabra aka ‘sanish21’ winning the 3rd and Ritam Bhattacharya aka ‘RitamB’ shipping the 4th respectively.

The charm of the tournament not just lies in the simplicity of it but also how people from various backgrounds with equal fervor take part in it. None of the winners are the biggest names in the poker community, which gives the belief that this tournament can be won by anybody and everybody.

In the same spirit, Adda52 is now launching its 5th edition on 3rd February 2019 at 5 pm. The tournament has been true to its name by drawing record-breaking fields and doling out life-changing prizes. The much-anticipated event features a monumental prize pool of INR 50 Lac at just INR 2500 buy-in, which makes it an incredible value for every poker enthusiast. Players can win tickets to the event via online satellites on Adda52 for as little as INR 150.

Speaking about the magnificence and importance of these poker tournaments, Mohit Agarwal, Founder & CEO Adda52 said,” the tournaments we organize are of international standards, thus, providing the Indian poker players the platform to keep upgrading their skills. The year on year growth of poker players on Adda52 and the scale of the tournaments are a testimony to the same. Gayle Storm like other tournaments tests the players' patience and skills. And this year, the intent is to take Gayle Storm a notch higher and provide our players an extraordinary experience."

The upcoming storm of prizes on Adda52 is expected to draw 2500 + players from across the country and will most certainly recreate history.
