There was a time when Bengaluru was the hub of live poker tourneys and though the city boasts of an active live poker circuit, what has largely been missing is the exciting rush of a regular tournament series. Here’s where MadOverPoker, the online gaming portal has stepped in. A month after launching the first live tournament edition of its flagship online ‘Hysteria’ event, MadOverPoker has now announced its second edition for the same. ‘Hysteria Live 2.0’ is coming to the Garden city, to be hosted once again in the luxurious Tilt Poker Room located in Indira Nagar on June 30!
The first edition of Hysteria Live had also been held in Tilt Poker Room – one of the biggest poker haunts in Bengaluru. The tournament pulled in a healthy turnout of 148 entries that included 115 unique entries and 33 re-entries, marching beyond the ₹5 Lakhs prize-pool guarantee to reach a final prize pool of ₹5.92 Lakhs which was divided amid the top 18 finishers. Alireza P won the tournament to bank a first place payday of ₹1.22 Lakhs.
“We are very humbled to receive a stupendous response from the poker community for the inaugural Hysteria live event. We received a great feedback in regards to the structure and organization of the event. Our team will continue listening to our players and address these issues to cater to the needs of our player community and give them the best experience. In this regard, we plan to double down on hysteria live product offering and enhance it for greater player satisfaction.” said CEO of MadOverPoker, Amit Kanodia, in a statement to PokerGuru.
This time, MadOverPoker has endeavored to add attractive offers and bounties for poker players. Featuring a buy-in of ₹4,400 and running on the re-entry format, Hysteria Live 2.0 once again features a ₹5 Lakhs GTD prize pool. While the satellite events will begin from 12 pm onwards on June 30, with buy-ins starting as low as ₹500, the Main Event will start at 2 pm sharp.
There are two shining offers for the tournament. The Online Registration offer allows players to pre-book their seat by registering themselves and depositing ₹4,400 on MadOverPoker.com using the code HYSBIRD, on which they will receive a ‘cash back’ of ₹1,100 in their MOP account. The offer is open till midnight on June 29.

Also users can deposit ₹20,000 using code HYSX2, and get a free ticket entry to Hysteria Live and Sunday’s flagship online Hysteria.
Adding to the glitter of the aforementioned offers, MadOverPoker has announced several bounty programs for MadOverPoker players participating in the event. This includes, the 2-7 Offsuit Bounty that entails the player to win hand with 2-7 offsuit and claim a bounty of ₹2,000 bonus money in their MOP account.
Another bounty offer is the Highest Hand of The Tournament (Minimum Quads), that features a bounty of ₹10,000 bonus money.
