After a grand debut in April, one of the most awaited live poker events in Bengaluru – Hysteria Live 2.0 with ₹5 Lakhs GTD returned on June 30 and went on to repeat the success of its inaugural edition!
Hosted at the luxurious The Tilt Room, housed in one of the city’s most upscale localities, the event registered a massive field of 205 entries (111 unique entries) easily crushing the advertised guarantee with the total prize pool touching an impressive ₹8.2 Lakhs that was shared among the top 20 finishers with ₹2 Lakhs reserved for the winner. The turnout was enough to make the event one of the biggest poker tournaments in recent times to be hosted in Garden City!
After 12 hours of intense action, local pro Santhosh Suvarna (cover image) came out on the top after defeating Vishal Krishna in the heads-up match and took home his first Hysteria LIVE trophy along with the top prize of ₹2 Lakhs.
The event saw participation from well-known players from the domestic circuit like Guruprasad Gupta, Chirag Sodha, Chiraag Patel, Vinay B, Madan Kumar, Abhijeet Shetty and Santhosh Suvarna among many others.
The event had plenty of offers for the players at hand which made it a fun filled affair along with the great value on offer for all the participants. Promotions included offers like 2-7 off-suit bounty, best hand of the day bounty and the bubble back bounty. To top it off, there were several deposit codes awarding free seats and bankroll as well!
As expected, feedback was overwhelmingly positive towards the MadOverPoker team.
Guruprasad Gupta said, “It was a fantastic experience… good show!”
Local poker pro Chirag Sodha said, “It a good event and as always the Bangalore players didn’t disappoint and showed up and crushed the GTD again. We should have more such events in Bangalore, a lot of the poker crowd in India is from here.”
Chiraag Patel shared his views on the event saying, “I loved the tournament! We rarely have any live tournaments in Bangalore nowadays and especially ones that pay-out 2 Lakh up top. It was awesome!”
