Are you ready folks? Deltin Poker Tournament (DPT) is back with another edition, which promises to be an exciting ride in your poker journey. One of the most-awaited live poker series in India, it kicks off on 8th November and will run all the way till 14th November in its home Deltin Royale casino, Goa.

As with all the previous editions, the series will be highlighted by the High Roller and the Main Event. Apart from the High Roller and Main Event, the upcoming series has a 25K No-Limit Hold’em Bounty and a 25K PLO Bounty Turbo on its schedule to cater to Bounty and PLO lovers in the country. And it promises to be a special treat for poker ladies as there will be a 15K buy-in Women’s Special as well.

One big reason why one should not miss out on this series is that there is something for everyone with buy-ins starting at INR 15k. Players can grind in satellites to be a part of the marquee events of the DPT. While today will mark the end of online satellites on Adda52.com, players can grind in live satellites on 7th November at the Deltin Royale in Goa. Check out the details of the satellites HERE!

As we are now just a couple of days away from the commencement of the DPT, we caught up with Adda52 Game Ambassador Kunal Patni, who is currently one of the best players in the country with several prestigious live poker titles under his belt. Currently ranked 10th in India’s All-Time Money List with $609,383 in live cashes, he has been in terrific form over the last few months. He has already picked up two prestigious live titles this year and is looking for yet another title at the DPT. His first title came in August when he shipped the WPT Prime Cambodia 2022 Deepstack and the second one came just last month when he won the Poker Dream Vietnam 2022 Mystery Bounty.

The WPT Prime Cambodia 2022 and the Poker Dream Vietnam 2022 Mystery Bounty champion, Patni, who has been traveling in the Asian region for live poker tournaments, is now looking forward to the DPT November and he seems pretty excited about the series. He believes that DPT is one of the oldest live series in India and must be attended by every serious poker player in the country. 

Throwing light on the significance of the DPT for the first-timers and newbies in the country, the talented MTT pro said, “DPT is the biggest and the best live poker series in India. For first-timers and newbies, it’s the best way to experience how a live tournament series works. Most of the Indian pro players played their first live series at DPT and it’s a great place for breeding upcoming talent.”

When asked about his advice for poker players attending the DPT for the first time, he came out with the following crucial tips that should help you to do well and kick-start your DPT journey in style.

  1. Plan properly and keep time at hand as one needs to take a feeder boat to get to the casino.
  2. Don’t be overwhelmed by the situation and meeting popular poker players. Keep your calm and focus.
  3. MTT is a game of patience. Don’t panic if you lose some chips in the early levels. It’s a long tournament, so don’t get flustered and throw your stack away.
  4. Sleep well and rest properly as playing live for 9-10 hours daily and sitting on a chair for a week isn’t very easy.
  5. Don’t go overboard partying during the series. Remember every day is important during the series.

We hope that the above tips from this talented poker pro help you to put your best foot forward and win big at the upcoming DPT series in Goa. Wishing you all good luck at the DPT felts! See you in Goa!
