Indian Rummy Challenge

IRC (Indian Rummy Challenge), the phenomenal live rummy tournament by Adda52 rummy as a part of WGF (World Gaming Festival) became a huge sensation this year. In November, Adda52 rummy announced satellite tournaments and invited the VIP players of the website to participate and win Main Event tickets of Indian Rummy Challenge at Deltin Royale, India’s most luxurious cruise casino in Goa. There were four quarter-final rummy tournaments which ran between 23rd October to 19th November, 2017 on the website. Satellite buy-in amount was just Rs. 25 and as one might expect, lots of players participated to win the Main Event ticket and turn their dream into reality. There was also option of direct entry available through leaderboard with minimum 40,000 loyalty points. Players were also offered to purchase the ticket by making a deposit of Rs. 50,000 directly for the Main Event. 

Divakaran, who plays under the username “vikkyking” on Adda52, registered himself to play the satellites. The competition was tough where players with extraordinary rummy skills competed against each other to win but Divakaran managed to defeat others and won Main Event ticket of IRC. Main Event was a multi-table tournament which was held on 4th Dec, 2017 aboard Deltin Royale Casino in Goa. 

Divakaran competed against the sharpest minds of rummy industry at the massive Main Event. Needless to say, the battle was ferocious till the end. Divakaran’s patience and efforts finally paid off, he prevailed over all his opponents and ultimately made it to the top. Rajasekhara Reddy, known by username “virat447” joined the bandwagon of money and reached at 2nd position in the tournament.
