May 2016: India’s popular online poker website, Adda52 and Bangalore-based casino, Rockets Poker Room are ending their association after one successful year of collaboration. Adda52 signed a deal with Rockets Poker Room last year to launch its live tournament brand, Adda52 LIVE.
Rockets Poker Room saw some changes in the past few weeks after the resignation of one of its managers, Mr. Praveen Dwarkanath. The other partner, Mr. Sathosh Suvarna, has now taken over control of the management. Apparently, Adda52 has kept the renewal of the contract with Rockets on hold until the management issue has been sorted and the new management is comfortably settled into the operations.
Adda52 LIVE received a lot of positive response from live tournament players because it offered more wins for lower buy-ins; Rockets Poker Room’s hospitable services added to the popularity of the tournament. Whether these two establishments will renew their contract will be clear with time.
