Adda52 made the much-awaited announcement about the third edition of its popular live poker series—Colossus. Adda52 Colossus 2022 is all set to take place between 2nd – 7th August 2022 and will feature hefty buy-ins which only translate to heavy-duty cash prizes. The venue for Colossus 2022 is the Adda52 Live poker room onboard Deltin Royale in Goa. Colossus 2022 with #UnleashYou at its core is looking to have a smashing high roller series, where players get to unleash their poker prowess and win amazing rewards.
While we prepare for some intense high-stake action to unfold and new champions to be crowned, let’s also take a quick walk down memory lane, and revisit the inaugural edition of Colossus held in 2018. The successful edition was held between 26th – 29th April in 2018 at the luxurious Deltin Royale casino in Goa.
Several notable personalities, including top pros from the country, entrepreneurs, investors, as well as celebrities, marked their presence at the high roller series. It had events featuring massive buy-ins. The tournaments became the talk of the town not just because they were high roller events, but they also offered some nail-biting action for all to see. The final tables of the 200K High Roller and 50K Warm-up tournaments were live-streamed, adding to the excitement and drama element of the series.
Famous West Indian cricketer Chris Gayle and 888Poker’s ambassador Sofia Lovgren were also present at the series.
This event kick-started the series in style. The ₹50,000 buy-in event was shipped by Vivek Rughani for ₹9.05 Lakh, after he beat celebrity poker player Minissha Lamba in the heads-up clash. Lamba took home a pay cheque of ₹5.73 Lakh. The event had 61 entries, including several celebrities like Chris Gayle, 888poker ambassador Sofia Lovgren and WSOP bracelet winner Aditya Sushant, Kunal Patni, Abhinav Iyer, Abhishek Goindi, Zarvan Tumboli, Nikita Luther, among others. This two-day event had the top seven players sharing the prize pool of ₹30,19,500. Sadly, poker pro Luther bubbled the final table at the eighth place.
The 200K Super High Roller was one of the most anticipated events of the Colossus 2018. High rollers are the most action packed events in poker. Players throng these tournaments for the thrill and high-octane action that these tournaments offer, and the 200K Super High Roller was no different. The tournament ended with Indian pro Sriharsha Doddapaneni defeating Meherzad Munsaf in the heads-up to nail the title for a massive ₹28.70 Lakh. The Hyderabad player became the biggest player of the series.
Bollywood actress Minissha Lamba finished third for ₹14,36,000. The event had 44 entries who paid a buy-in of ₹2,00,000, generating a prize pool of ₹87,12,000, which was shared by the top six players.
This was the final event of the series. It was shipped by Satguru S for ₹2.57 Lakh. Adda52 Game Ambassador Kunal Patni finished second for ₹1.54 Lakh.
