Gokul Krishna leads final 19 in DPT Colossus Warm Up Event
The Deltin Poker Tournament (DPT) is something that all the top Indian players look forward to from time to time. One of their newer series is DPT Colossus where, as the name suggests, the buy-ins are colossal, and you will only find some of the best in the business taking part in this series. This is the second edition of the DPT Colossus.
The series is scheduled between 2-5 May 2019 and yesterday, the INR 50k Warm Up Event kicked off and we saw many top names in action on board the Deltin Royale in Goa. Adda52 Celebrity Pro Minissha Lamba and Team Pro Kunal Patni were also in action, with the latter progressing to Day 2 as well.
By Level 10, registration shut with a total of 66 entries joining the tournament. The prize pool is set to be shared among only the top 9 players, and by the end of Day 1, 19 players bagged chips to return later today. All will have their eyes on the top prize of INR 10,80,000. Complete pay-outs:

Gokul Krishna (pictured above) is the player who held the chip lead right from early on in the tournament and continued to do so by the end of the day. He holds a massive stack in excess of 400k and the only one close to him is the veteran Meherzad Munsaf (pictured below) who possesses a stack of 320k, both way above the others in contention.
Munsaf was runner-up in this event last year and he'll be looking to go one step further than 2018 when he resumes today. Popular names like Nishant Sharma, Kunal Patni and Raghav Bansal also progressed, but they will need to chip up early on Day 2 if they want to finish in the money.
