redbetLIVE Malta Dragonara StaffLvl 1 – 25/50 – 13 players

Good start here with 13 players taking their seats at the start.
No rush to join, as the structure is pretty chill.

Lvl 2 – 50/100 – 22/22 players

Up to three tables here with seats available as players keep drifting in and nobody has bust. Pretty hard to spew off 600bb though, right?

Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 26/27 players

Turns out you can spew of many many blinds in a short space of time if you work at it.
With the first elimination under our belts, action continues here at Dragonara.

BREAK – 15mins

Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 30/32 players

Another entry in the break as the valets pop round with some snacks.

Lvl 8 – 250/500/50 – 29/37 players

They keep coming and they keep getting knocked out… basically, that’s how poker tournaments work.
Right, there appears to be a fashion for kissing one’s opponent when you bad beat them. Let’s just nip that right in the bud, shall we?

Great turn-out for Day 1A of this event, and there are 30 minutes remaining to enter this flight.
