Three starting flights were scheduled for the prestigious Deltin Poker Tournament (DPT) Main Event. Earlier, we reported 31 players progressing from Day 1A of the tournament, with M Khan ending as the chip leader. Yesterday, Day 1B kicked off at 2pm, while Day 1C Turbo began at 9pm.

Some of the top names in Indian poker were in attendance across all starting flights, and a total of 108 players managed to bag their chips to progress to Day 2 which will be played later today. 41 players survived Day 1B out of the total field of 114 entries, and it wasn't a surprise to see Nikita Luther ending as the chip leader with a massive stack of 209,500.
