Prasit Chowdhury Is The WPT Prime India 2023 Main Event Champion!


After four days of intense grind, 857 entries, cut-throat action and a seven-hour-long fierce final table, WPT Prime India 2023 finally has its winner in the form of Prasit Chowdhury. The Kolkata-based player has taken down the most coveted title of the series after beating Amit Tejura in the heads-up.

The Main Event broke all previous records to generate the highest prize pool, the biggest entry field and the biggest top prize in the history of WPT India. Chowdhury takes home the WPT Prime India 2023 title, the prestigious trophy, a pay cheque of a massive ₹86,60,000 and a $10,400 seat into the season-ending WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas for his finish.

Chowdhury entered the final table as the chip leader. In the final hand of the event, Tejura raised to 1,500,000 and Chowdhury limp shoved which led to his short-stacked rival going all-in with 6,800,000. Chowdhury called with K Q , while Tejura had A 6 in hand. The board brought 5 8 2 4 K to give Chowdhury his winning hand. 

  • Tejura: A 6
  • Chowdhury: K Q
  • Board: 5 8 2 4 K

Chowdhury was so deep into the emotion that during the final hand, he didn’t watch the hand unfold and chose to close his eyes. His winning moment is truly heart-warming.

Amit Tejura Finishes Runner-up

Tejura put up a good fight during the heads-up. Although Chowdhury started the heads-up with a hefty lead, Tejura managed to put up a good fight and steal chips from his opponent. So much that the stacks almost evened at one point on the table, thanks to a couple of double-ups by Tejura. Finally, the Goa resident took home ₹57,75,000 for his second-place finish.
