List Of WPT India Main Event Winners

World Poker Tour (WPT) is one of the world’s top poker series. Incepted in 2002, the WPT has, over the years, expanded across several locations across the globe. Today it is one of the most popular international poker tournaments and televised poker series worldwide.

The WPT title and trophy are considered one of the most prestigious poker titles in the world. The series made its debut in India in 2017, and ever since, there have been three successful editions held at Deltin Royale Casino in Goa. The COVID-19 pandemic brought a standstill to the series. After a hiatus of almost three years, the series is returning to India with WPT Prime India 2023. The series is all set to run between the 12th to 18th April, 2023. 

As we gear up for the upcoming edition, let’s look at the past WPT Main Events over the past three editions.
