A new kid looking for a perfect platform to practice and hone your skills in live poker? If yes, then DPT Xpress is meant for you! It is a unique live poker tournament series designed specifically for the new kids on the block who are daunted by larger fields or otherwise cannot play tournaments due to high buy-ins. As the series draws minimal participation from the pros and regs, it serves as a heaven for the newbies who want to practice and hone their skills in live poker. While poker is always fun, great destinations add extra value to the game. To provide players a destination experience, the 3rd edition of DPT Xpress is traveling to Deltin JAQK, a beautiful casino in Goa where players will not be able to just play the best in class of tournaments but also experience amazing cash game action.
The 3rd edition of DPT Xpress kicks off on 6th June 2019 and will run till 9th June. Like the previous editions, it will feature a total of 4 tournaments, kicking off with the 5K Burn ‘N’ Turn on 6th June and concluding with the Tag Team Event on 9th June. The Main Event running from 7th to 8th June will be the biggest highlight of the series. 8 June will also bring 10K Bounty Event to cater to bounty lovers.
The structures have been tweaked for the 3rd DPT Xpress edition as well with the Main Event becoming deeper and carrying a stack of 20K this time. We caught-up with Delta Corp’s Business Head Poker – Manish J. Adnani to know what makes DPT Xpress stand out for the players venturing into live poker tournament environment and he came out with five solid reasons, which include:
- DPT Xpress is the smallest live series buy-in in at INR 35,000 in India that offers poker players a great value to come practice their live poker skills. Multiple formats give players a good work-out over 4 days of action.
- It is a rolling event and will be featured at all Deltin properties, thereby giving players a destination experience. Poker is always fun but good destinations add that balance to any poker player’s trip making that trip even more memorable. Sikkim, Goa and in the near future Nepal will be another destinations we plan to feature for DPT Xpress events and are confident players will enjoy the series.
- The field is all-new and is populated by the Millennia generation and offers a very different vibe overall to the DPT, DPT Colossus and WPT. There is also minimal participation from the pros and regs, which makes it a “heaven” for the newer lot of players.
- It serves as the perfect breeding ground for the Champions of tomorrow. Poker for everyone started the same way and so is the progression. DPT Xpress is designed with the ethos “going back to the roots”, which is why it features the smaller buy-ins. The structures have been tweaked to perform better in the 3rd edition of the DPT Xpress as well and this is an ongoing process post feedback from the players.
- Poker is a community game and camaraderie shared at DPT Xpress is special and players can only experience this once they are at the event.
So, it is going to be more exciting this time. Don’t miss 3rd edition of DPT Xpress starting on 6th June!
