We’re here waiting for the gentle afternoon flight to begin. 1 player is registered, 1 dealer sits patiently, 1 Tournament Director tries to look busy, 1 redbet rep attacks the valet for a massive coffee.

Very quiet and peaceful game of afternoon poker happening here. We have chilled music on the stereo and if you’re looking for a relaxing way to spend your Saturday, then this may be the place.

Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 6/6 players

We redbetlive malta dragonara stellato feb2019have learned this level that Andrea Stellato does not want “disco music” in a poker room. Seems reasonable, how do you feel about thrash metal?

BREAK – 15mins

Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 7/8 players

One re-entry has happened, and a new player joined us as the evening begins to fall on this delightful Mediterranean island.

Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 9/10 players

It was pretty chilled here, there appears to be some sort of dispute happening, but TD Paul Kelly is dealing with it._d3_0838
Equally, it could just be a conversation. It’s hard to tell with Italians sometimes!

BREAK – 15mins

Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 8/10 players

It’s dinner time here, so we’re tucking into a chicken burger from the restaurant… for quality control purposes, obviously!

redbetlive-0970The evening quietly rolls on as the few players from the afternoon hang in for Day2 to come.

BREAK – 15mins

Lvl 10 – 400/800/100 – 6/12 players

The 1B players are being good as gold, quietly grinding through the levels till the end.redbetlive jackie cachia poker mamma malta dragonara feb2019 day1c
Jackie “Poker Mamma” Cachia, the PLON ambassador is on the table, so maybe she’s keeping them all in check.

Lvl 12 – 600/1200 – 6/12 players

These guys have worked hard for this day 2. Short handed play is very taxing when you are more used to full 9/10 handed tables.
They are on the home stretch now.

Four players made it through from Day 1B after a mad flurry in the last five hands where two players were eliminated back to back!

Play starts again tomorrow, Sunday 10th February at 2pm. Please arrive five minutes early to open your chip bag!
