The second edition of the Deltin Poker Tournament (DPT) Colossus Super High Roller (SHR) is upon us. Scheduled to run from May 2 to 5 at the luxurious Casino Deltin Royale, located in the coastal state of Goa, the series is expected to bring in the big crowds to the poker hub of the country.
Powered by premier online poker site – Adda52, the series mainly caters to high-stakes poker players and is a sub-brand of the bigger DPT brand. Similar to the Colossus, DPT has also started a series for low-to-mid stakes players, the DPT Xpress, which recently hosted its second edition at the picturesque Casino Deltin Denzong in Sikkim, from March 14 to March 17.
According to industry reports Delta Corp. has been looking to sell its online poker brand Adda52, which it had acquired back in 2017, for several months now. According to a source, Delta Corp is in advanced stages of talks with a potential buyer, and a formal sale announcement is expected shortly. It is still unsure what will happen to the DPT brand with Adda52 no longer in the picture or if the upcoming series will be the last time these two brands work together. It looks like we will have wait and see how things pan out.
