Lvl 1 – 25/50 – 5 players
Clock starts with 5 players and a couple knocking about considering their options.
Some people don’t like playing short handed, and we understand that. Anyone got any good advice for improving one’s short handed game? We know we need it!
Our photographer will arrive around 5pm, so you will have some lovely new photos then, in the meantime, we’ll provide as many faces as we can from our live event archives.
Lvl 2 – 50/100 – 9/9 players
Not much to report from the first half hour of play. These games always have the feel of homegames on a lazy afternoon, so, honestly, we’re just putting our feet up and chatting. Not sorry for it, the atmosphere is superb here; come and hang with us, even if you don’t want to play poker!
Lvl 3 – 75/100 – 12/12 players
The field is growing! These redbetLIVE games at Dragonara were never meant to be mind blowing fields and prizes, they were meant to be a place to play chilled out poker and potentially win a few beans. Fair to say they are just that, we think!
We’re relaxing into the afternoon, with a summer breeze and a deepstack structure, what more is needed on a Saturday afternoon?
BREAK -15 mins
Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 13/13 players
Players still wandering in with plenty of time to register!
There is another player here to register, but he got embroiled in a heated discussion about the infinite multiverses and quantum physics; standard.
Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 12/13 players
We lost satellite qualifier Maurizo Autellitano in the last level, but we’re sure he can bink a seat for the next event as we know he’s a satellite shark!
There are a lot of pots like this happening:
Dimitar Ivanov raises to 450 from two seats right of of the button (hijack) and is 3bet to 1450 by Grably Yair from the cutoff (one seat to right of button).
Ivanov calls, flop is 4d 4s 7s and both players check. The turn is Ah and Ivanov checks letting Yair make a 2k bet which he then calls.
The 5h river is checked by both players and Yair takes the pot with AK versus Ivanov’s A10.
Lvl 6 – 150/300/25 – 12/13 players
There are players lurking about here. There’s a lot of poker in Malta this weekend, and it feels sort of like a festival spread over multiple casinos. Players are wandering between looking for value! Poker is definitely alive and well…?
BREAK – 15 mins
