As per Mr Manish Adnani, Business Head of Delta Corp Ltd.,“DPT has evolved as a product over the past 28 months since its inception in early 2016. Back then we just had one series the Deltin Poker Tournament which attracted regulars, pros and all kinds of recreational players. As the fabric and space have evolved we felt the need to have a Super High Roller series which took shape in the form of DPT Colossus in April this year clearly dissecting the High rollers from the rest of the pack.
Having said this, there are players who do play cash games at least 3-4 times a week in A , B and C cities but never make it out of the closet to a DPT event as they generally don’t land up playing live tournaments primarily due to high buy-ins and the standard of the game with the pros and regulars participating in these player fields.
DPT Xpress is specially designed to get these players out of their closets giving them a taste of tournament experience with a spectacular destination like Sikkim with exciting cash games. We hope that the players enjoy this experience in Sikkim as it will be a lot of fun all around. We will be live streaming the Bounty and Main Event Final table and hope to give everyone a great experience. Going into 2019 we will have three distinct properties DPT, DPT-Colossus & DPT Xpress catering to the poker playing community in India.”
