Have you seen the buzz that Adda52 Online Poker Series (AOPS) has created since the series was announced by online poker giant – Adda52. A ₹15 Crore GTD series, with 110+ events, 25 trophy events, ₹3 Crore Main Event and the final table of four marquee events to take place live at the Deltin Royale, Goa.
The much-awaited online poker series, which is massively popular among players kick-started on 27th January, and will run till 18th February 2024. The highlight of this series is the prestigious Main Event, offering a ₹3 Crore prize pool.
The Main Event comes with a buy-in of ₹11,000 and nine flight events before survivors progress to Day 2. We bet every poker pro wants to nail this title and add boatloads of money to their bank accounts. We thought it’s best to present a list of players who we think could ship the coveted Main Event (ME), keeping in mind their recent performances on online felts across different poker platforms.
Adda52 Game Ambassador needs no introduction. He has aced the live and online poker games with his excellent poker skills and continues to give his opponents a tough time at the games. Sriram will be participating in the series which kick-started on 27th January and we bet he has his eyes set on the Main Event. This poker pro added a heavy-duty title like the EndBoss on PokerBaazi to his credit in September 2023 and has close to 100 online poker titles to his name. As a pro who grabbed one of the biggest pay cheques in 2023, Sriram has top notch potential to take down AOPS 2024 Main Event.
This player has already once before shipped the AOPS Main Event title in March 2020. The question begs itself—Can he do it again? We think he can. Alam has been running hot in the initial weeks of 2024 when it comes to online poker tournaments and if he continues his streak of running good, then AOPS 2024 ME title does not look like a far-fetched dream. Will this dream come true? Only time will tell.
This player is a well-established name in the Indian online poker industry. His name pops up every now and then in the list of players who have shipped titles or had deep run-ins in poker tournaments across various online poker platforms. In December 2023, Behera shipped PokerBaazi’s EndBoss title like a boss and added a cool ₹1 Crore prize money to his bankroll. Is he capable of pulling a Main Event victory in AOPS 2024? Yes, he is! There is no doubt that this poker pro has a ton of potential; Behera with the help of a robust strategy can surely win the AOPS ME 2024 title.

Malik in the second week of January 2024 was the third highest prize winner. He added over ₹18 Lakh to his bankroll in just one week.

This Adda52 Big Game champion can surely roll up his sleeves for the upcoming AOPS 2024 series and take down the coveted ME title.
Do we need a reason to add Aditya Agarwal to this list? We don’t think so. This poker pro and coach is considered to be the God of poker in India. A look at his 2024 poker exploits, Agarwal has third place finishes in the MoneyMaker for over ₹7 Lakh, BSS Big Bounty for close to ₹2 Lakh and Ultron for ₹1.60 Lakh. Not to forget he shipped the India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) Main Event title in January 2023 and left competition to bite dust.
