It is going to be a tough Valentine for those poker players, who have a partner and will have to choose between love and poker love! This is one contest that the latter is most probably going to win, especially in lieu of the Tilt Poker Series, set to run Feb 11 – 16 at the Rockets Poker Room, Bangalore.
Based on a “Movie” theme, this series will feature exclusive film titled events and the highlight will be the INR 25K Gladiator Main Event on Feb 14.
Now come further enticements from the organizers, who are going all out to ensure players get some really delightful treats. Read on to know about the newly added goodies in store, as well as the change in timings of the events…
Trip to Macau Poker Cup for Player of the Series
In our last update on Tilt, Sangeeth Mohan of Tilt Poker Series had stated that,
“We have also included a lot of unbelievable value adds for our players this time around. You just have to wait and watch as we are going to announce these very soon. The whole idea being, that tournament poker enjoys its long lost erstwhile glory. Cheers".
True to his words, the organizers have now come out with a special package for the winner of the “Player of the Series” title at the upcoming Tilt Poker Series. Return tickets and five nights stay at Hard Rock Hotel in Macau for the upcoming Macau Poker Cup, valued at INR 1 Lakh await the winner.
Last time, Tilt had given away seats to the IPC and talking about promotions, Sangeeth says,
"We gave tickets to the IPC last time around and I think it was an easy decision to send the player of the series to Macau to experience the Macau Poker cup because it is the biggest event in Asia. We at Tilt are constantly trying to add value to our tournaments and will continue to do so in the future. It is our undying endeavor to improve the quality of Poker in the country and provide maximum exposure to the up and coming Poker talents. Hence, the decision to make available the opportunity, to experience the hub of Poker in Asia."
Thanking the PokerStars team, Sangeeth concluded, "I would also like to thank Danny McDonagh and Ankur Diwani of Pokerstars who concur with our vision and made this possible. And like we say, "It's #goodforthegame."
Start Times Preponed
A change has been made to the schedule timings, with the start of all events, preponed from the originally announced 4pm to 2pm.
Considering the recent massive player-crowd at the IPC, it is expected that similar crowds will throng the Tilt Poker Series.
Commenting on the changed timings, Sangeeth adds, "We are expecting a bigger crowd this time around and just want to give ourselves enough time to seat everyone even if it means that we have to split the field into 2 flights."
