#FlashbackFriday: When Raghav Bansal Won The DPT ME


Ever since the Deltin Poker Tournament (DPT) was launched in 2016, it has seen immense popularity and participation from the players across the country. Every edition witnesses a good number of players battling it out for the top spots and a few walking away with truckloads of cash in prize money. 

DPT is coming back this November at Deltin Royale in Goa from 8th to 14th November 2022. And as we prep for the upcoming edition, we thought, why not look back to the very first edition in January 2016. The first-ever DPT was hosted between 21st to 26th January 2016 and is known among the poker community as a turning point in the history of the Indian poker tournament series. 

The ₹100K buy-in Main Event, it had a mega ₹1 Crore guarantee. The top 12 finishers made it in the money and over 450 entries participated in the series and the overall advertised guarantee and recorded a final prize pool of ₹1.5 Crore.

Coming back to the Main Event, it recorded a field of 102 entries. Delhi-based Raghav Bansal became the first-ever champion by beating fellow city man Akash Malik in the heads-up to lift the title for ₹30.60 Lakh. Malik settled for the runner-up spot for ₹18,87,000. The final table was a glitzy affair with names like Dhaval Mudgal (3rd, ₹13,26,000), Rishabh Jhunjhunwala (4th, ₹10,20,000), Abhay Bokadia (5th, ₹7,14,000), Madan Kumar (6th, ₹5,61,000), Romit Advani (7th, ₹4,08,000), Ujjwal Rana (8th, ₹3,06,000), and Jaideep Sajwan (9th, ₹2,55,000).

Bansal started the final table with the second-highest stack of 623k chips, just short of Mudgal with the highest stack. He eliminated six players on the final table before entering the heads-up with Malik. 

During the final hand, Bansal bet 80,000 and Malik pushed all-in. Bansal called and flipped K Q , while Malik showed A 4 . The board of 6 K 4 3 8 gave both the players a pair, however, Bansal’s king-pair came to his rescue.
