redbetLIVE at Dragonara, Malta: March 2018 Day 1B

Clock will start slightly late as we are in Malta afternoon mode and players are slow to arrive. We have three registered and the clock starts with 5.

 Lvl 1 – 25/50 – 8/8 players

Clock started at 14:16 with 8 players. The afternoon flight is always the quietest, and tends to be the most hardcore poker play as well.

Lvl 2 – 50/100 – 13/13 players

_00a1364As predicted, the players are starting to wake up!
There is an ongoing argument here about the weather. Some people are hot, some people are cold, some people think winter is coming and some people watch too much Game Of Thrones.

Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 15/15 players

Very relaxed here, and no-one has been eliminated. This flight has a very different vibe from last night, it may be because there is less beer being drunk right now… hmmm… science.

BREAK – 15 mins

Long time media professional of the poker industry, Dirk Oetzman has just proudly informed us he’s made it to the first break. You did start with 600 big blinds, Dirk, but we’re glad your years of experience have helped you through the first 90 mins of play!

Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 15/15 players

Predictably, the conversation  in the breaks keep swinging back to the Battle of Malta/Malta Poker Festival saga. Poker players do love a bit of drama, don’t they?

Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 15/16 players_00a1446

The antes have kicked in and we have had the first re-entry of the day. Very relaxed here, Dragonara card room always seems so calm when Jeanelle Brincat is in charge.

BREAK – 15 mins

Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 14/19 players

_d3_1713Lvl 9 – 300/600/50 – 15/20 players

Last level of entry for flight 1B. There are a few players knocking about and they are not sure whether to enter late into 1B or wait 30 minutes until 1C starts.

Into the final level of play for the guys in Day 1B. The remaining eleven just have to survive 30 more minutes of play and they will be back tomorrow at 14:00 to carry on playing Day 2.
