One of India’s fastest growing online poker portals, MadOverPoker (MoP) has established itself as a brand that caters to all poker players. Their offerings include high value live and online tournaments, round-the-clock free rolls and insane cash game promotions that have something on offer for everyone!
In its continuous efforts to offer high value lucrative tournaments, MadOverPoker had introduced a new flagship tournament the ‘Rehab’ last October that offered great value for a modest ₹1,500 buy-in and a massive ₹5 Lakhs prize pool. The next Rehab is scheduled for today (January 13), at 4 pm.
The site has successfully hosted three editions of the Rehab in the past with the event making it`s debut on October 7 last year, and it would be an understatement to say that the same was a success. The inaugural edition pulled in an impressive 300 entries where Kshitij ‘thegodfath3r’ Kucheria took home the top honors, converting an ₹1,500 investment into an ₹85,000 windfall.
Speaking about his win, Kucheria had said, “This was actually my first tournament on MOP. I registered on MOP on Sunday specifically for this high-value tournament. The field was super soft. I reached the final table with a position of 6/8 and people immediately started to talk of a deal there. I felt I had an edge over others, so I continued playing. And here we are!”
The second edition of the Rehab took place the following month in November and was an even bigger success. Jason ‘BranStark’ topped the huge field to take home the ₹1 Lakh top prize and he managed to do that on just one bullet.
Echoing Kucheria on how soft this tournament is, Jason said, “Rehab is the perfect tourney for grinders. The field was easy. I started playing tight aggressive (TAG) and even after knowing I was playing tight, most of the time people would call my pre-flop shoves and I was just shoving on Aces and Kings. It is one of my biggest scores; I would never miss a tourney like Rehab”
The December edition of the Rehab was won by Vasoo ‘edawg’ Wadhawan.
Talking about the Rehab, MadOverPoker’s founder & CEO Amit Kanodia told PokerGuru, “The event was designed for players who are serious about their game and have something to prove. The Rehab is the perfect platform for players starting out or even players who are experienced but have a big appetite for max value tourneys.”
“The popularity of Rehab has grown over the months. We thought it would be a one-time thing but after talking to the players and looking at the demand, we had to make Rehab a monthly tournament,” added Kanodia.
To make the upcoming Rehab tournament more inclusive, MadOverPoker has put up deposit offers that can win you free tickets for the tournament.
MadOverPoker had last month announced the Winter Madness promotion that offers cash game players a chance to win all-expenses paid packages to the upcoming The Indian Poker Series (TIPS) in King’s Casino Rozvadov.
MadOverPoker has also recently revamped it`s popular Hysteria event which now has a more affordable buy-in and an increased prize pool guarantee! The ₹3,300 buy-in event will now cost ₹2,750 and promises twice the rewards with the prize pool guarantee doubling to ₹10 Lakhs!
