Lvl 1 – 25/50 – 12 players
Off we go again for the third and final flight of the 1st redbetLIVE event in 2018.
Starting bang on time with 12 players, just as 1B wraps up. GL everyone!
Lvl 2 50/100 – 16/16 players
Action picking up here as players come in to register for Day 1C. Late reg is open until 00:30 for this flight, the end of level 9.
Guarantee is broken as we have already had 24 entries for this flight, with 7 30 min levels to go. 1 re-entry has already happened, but that’s the way it goes sometimes.
BREAK – 15 mins
Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 26/29 players
Plenty of action here as this turns into of one of the busiest flights we’ve had so far!
Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 27/30 players
Everyone having fun here, the chips are flying about.
If you fancy playing tonight, plenty of time to join us. If €200 is too much to buy in for you, make sure you join up to redbet poker online and keep your eyes peeled for our €5.50 satellites to this event, the next one is planned for March 2018.
Lvl 6 – 150/300/25 – 27/30 players
Really good atmosphere here at the moment, lots of laughing and needling. FUN!
Most importantly the dealers are getting in on the action. Guiseppe (shocking name for an Italian, I know) is full of classic Italian comebacks that only 4 players at the table understand.
Here at Redbet we like to think of ourselves as the United Nations of Poker (Trademark Pending), with players from over 13 nationalities currently playing, but with probably more drinking! Still 2 hours left of registration time to come down here and join the best Saturday night on the Island in January!
Ahhh… we just got a lovely neck massage from Antonio Intravaia; man has skillz. It’s amazing the things that poker players can do, huh?
BREAK – 15mins
Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 26/30 players
Lvl 8 – 250/500/50 – 26/30 players
Not much movement in the last hour. It’s the stage of the tournament where blinds are big enough to create decent sized pots, but not so big that people are forced into action because of the large starting stack in relation to the structure.
Lvl 9 – 300/600/50 – 25/30 players
Into the last level of entry for the day, and players can see the end in sight.
We have a couple of complaints today that players are not allowed to enter the tournament until the start of day two, but the reasoning behind it is, we believe, sound; as a recreational player, it feels better to know that entry is closed, and know how many opponents you have to beat from the start of Day2.
redbetLIVE is proud to be a poker brand that is focused heavily on recreational and inexperienced players, and we don’t like the idea of experienced players rocking up on Day 2 and causing carnage. You wanna make Day2 in our tourneys? You grind your way there!
BREAK – 15 mins
Lvl 10 – 400/800/100 – 24/30 players
We lost Andrea Stellato in the last hand before the break when he bluffed with AQ on J84J and was picked off by Phil Pearson holding pocket fives. Unlucky Stellato!
Lvl 11 – 500/1000/100 – 17/30 players
Messy last level with a few eliminations. Day 2 is getting closer, and busting now is painful!
Lvl 12 – 600/1200/100 – 13/30 players
13 players made it through to Day 2 from Day1C. Day 2 starts at 1pm Sunday 7th January.
