Lvl 1 – 25/50 – 7 players
Play started with 7 players, but as the TD started the clock two players wandered in looking for action.
Currently overlay stands at €1.2k, but there is a good chance this tournament will hit the guarantee… or close. This makes an amazing statement about the Maltese residents commitment to poker, given there’s been an election AND a Champions League Final this weekend.
What’s more important… Politics, Poker or Football?
Lat reg till lvl 9, which is around midnight. Plenty of time to watch the footy and then come on down!

Slight dispute surrounding the last elimination when a player opened UTG for 7k on 500/1000.
The dispute involved the infamous underraise rule, and as we’ve noticed this seems to cause a lot of confusion, let’s clear it up!
An underraise is a raise that is more than the standing bet, but not enough to re-activate action for players who have already made or called the standing bet. A bet must double the last raise to be counted as a full raise and so re-activate betting.
In this example, UTG opened for 7k on 500/1000, making the raise 6k. The big blind was 1k PLUS 6k raise.
The 7k was called by the small blind and the big blind shoved his stack, a total of 10500.
As the original raise was 6k on top of the blind of 1k, the amount required to be a full raise was 13k (6k raise plus 6k original raise plus the 1k blind).
The raise to 10500 was therefore, an underraise, and did not reactivate the betting for the UTG player who originally raised to 7k, so when UTG attempted to move all in, this was not allowed.
Hope this clears up the underraise rule!
Day 1C closed with 5 players:
Day 2 resumes tomorrow at 1pm from lvl 13 (800/1600/100).
