Anish Juwarkar
Anish Juwarkar

The series opener ₹5K Burn N Turn Event has culminated, crowing a winner in Anish Juwarkar. We had earlier predicted that Juwarkar would be a player to watch out for, and as it turns out, he was the last player standing from the starting field of 197 entries.

Juwarkar, who has been playing poker for over a decade now, had entered the final table as the short stack. Despite the tough odds, he put his 11 years of experience to good use and eliminated the likes of Niyut Shah, Dhaval Doshi, and Karan Mehta, en route to his heads-up showdown against Rajat Singh.

Once again, Juwarkar had started out on the back-foot at the start of the heads-up play. Still, he managed to make a comeback and whisk the chip lead away from Singh, ultimately claiming his first DPT Xpress title. This win comes as a redemption of sorts for Juwarkar, who had final tabled two events at the last DPT Xpress series in Goa!

When there were just five players left on the final table, the finalists had decided to strike an ICM deal. As per the deal, Singh assured himself the lion`s share worth ₹1.58 Lakhs. Dhaval Doshi (₹1.37 Lakhs), Clinton Fernandes (₹1.28 Lakhs), Anish Juwarkar (₹1.08 Lakhs) and Karan Mehta (₹98,200) divided the remainder of the prize money.

Rajat Singh Finishes Runner-Up

Board

A seven on the flop saw Juwarkar’s hand improve to a set, winning him the title and the DPT Xpress trophy!

Singh walked away with ₹1,58,800 for his runner-up finish, while Juwarkar took home ₹1,08,700 and the title!

The DPT Xpress Series Starts Today at 6 PM

• Level 1: 25 -50, Ante

Since last year, the live poker scene in Goa has grown by leaps and bounds. Earlier this year, the Baazi Poker Tour (BPT) and India Poker Championship (IPC) returned with their recently revived series.

Deltin Poker Tournament, on the other hand, has been flourishing in the coastal state for some time now. In this time, the DPT has worked up quite the reputation for itself and has even branched out to offer sub-brands (other live events) that cater to players of different stakes. While the original DPT series is aimed at the mid-to-high stakes players, the DPT Colossal has been curated for the high stakes players.

The DPT Xpress is a one of its kind series that caters to the low-to-mid stakes players and is ideal for newbies looking to get a taste of the live poker scene. Previously hosted in Casino Deltin Denzong in Sikkim, the series shifted base to Goa (Deltin JAQK) last year and immediately witnessed a spike in attendance.

In fact, the last edition was by far the most successful outing for the series thus far, with the ₹15K Main Event recording its largest-ever field of 205 entries. Seasoned pro Anant Purohit claimed his career-first live title for the shipping the event for ₹7.40 Lakhs.
