Famous American track and field athlete Allyson Felix, once said, “Everyone sees the glory moments, but they don’t see what happens behind the scenes.” While Felix said it in the context of her hard work behind the sport, doesn’t it hold true for any field, any activity? While we talk about the grand conclusion of the Deltin Poker Tournament (DPT) April 2022 and its inspiring winners, let’s not forget that there was a whole team working tirelessly behind the scenes, for days and months together ensuring that everything falls into place.
One such individual was Pravin Dwarkanath, Poker Head of Deltin. The glorious series, held aboard the Deltin Royale Casino in Goa, was a big hit among the players. But to understand how the series went for the men behind the curtains, we got in touch with Dwarkanath. Here’s what he had to share:
My biggest takeaway is that if you take efforts to improvise or upgrade player experience then you’ll always have happy players coming back. My main observation is that there is always room to improve and make it more fun and convenient for players. It’s my first biggest event as Poker Head and it’s an event for all players – professional, recreational, upcoming, established – everyone looks forward to it, so it’s been a learning experience for my team and me too, to understand what each category of the player looks for at an event of this scale.
Every event saw the guarantees being crushed, and DPT saw some record-breaking numbers!
We received a lot of appreciation for our new registration process for being time-saving and much easier. As it’s new to everyone including us, we did have some teething issues on Day 1, but we implement feedback and fix whatever was required.
As much as we were hoping to crush previous DPT numbers, the current situation around us all meant everything was uncertain. But yes, we see the registrations and our team comes in with ten years of combined experience so we had anticipated and were really glad and grateful that it met our expectations.
Yes, definitely. We are already in talks about something, when things are finalised, you’ll be the first to know.
Well, now that makes us all the more eager and excited to see the luxurious Deltin Royale casino blazing with unparallel poker action in the coming times. And looking at the success of DPT April 2022, we can stay assured of the best live poker experience at Deltin Royale. So, the next time you’re in Goa and want a surreal poker experience, Deltin Royale should be your destination.
But that’s not all, there is more that Dwarkanath shared about his association with Deltin and the what more milestones Deltin Poker Tournament achieved.
