It’s been a cracking few months for live poker with redbetLIVE, and I’m shocked at how close we are to the end of the year.
The last redbetLIVE of 2017 at Dragonara, Malta is coming up this weekend, and I’m very excited. It’s been a great year so far as I’ve managed to take a trip to Manchester and Tallinn with the MPNPT (Microgaming Poker Network Poker Tour).
These four day jaunts are really good fun, with a €550 main event (€150k gtd), some exciting lower buyin side-events, and plenty of non-poker activity, organised by the tour director, Clodagh Hansen.
There are MPNPT satellites on redbet online, with feeders starting at €1 and final package satellites at €135/€200 depending on what route you choose.
If you’re fairly new to poker, and fancy a shot at a live event and a weekend holiday, then I recommend starting at €1 and trying to win a few tickets to €11 satties.
You can then play for a €55 ticket, then a €200 and then go for the full €1500 package.
Your package will include your hotel for four nights, a main event AND side event entry, some money to help with expenses and a redbetLIVE players merch pack.
You will also have beers with me and prove conclusively that “MPNPT” is really hard to say 25 times quickly after the cocktails have been flowing.
The next event is in Mazagan, Morocco and I am very much looking forward to meeting some of the redbet online players there; the satty route is open now, get on it!
If you have any questions, contact me directly on FB or Twitter, I can be found under Kat Redbet on both.
Before I travel to Mazagan, I get to be involved with the redbetLIVE €200 buyin (€10k gtd) event at Dragonara casino this weekend (see details of this game below).
I love being at Dragonara, it’s such an unusual poker venue, and I’ll never get tired of staring wistfully out to sea.
These local events have been a lot of fun; small, friendly poker games with a very playable and relaxed structure.
Nearly 350 players have taken part, generating over €62k in prizepools since the first event in March, and I’m thrilled that redbetLIVE and Dragonara have agreed to go ahead with a new series of dates for 2018.
These will be released in January, after we’ve got our heads together with other local operators to make sure we all put on a great schedule for everyone next year.
I live in Malta, and I hate to miss out on playing an event because I’m running one! Long live poker!
I’ll be playing the brilliant Battle of Malta event at the end of next week (2nd-7th November), and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s part of the poker history of Malta, and I’m super excited about the main event and the ladies event!
I want a trophy… although I know there are some fierce poker ladies on this island that I have to compete with.
I look forward to meeting you at a live event soon!
