Lvl 1 – 25/50 – 6/6 players
Clocked rocked at 14:01 with Miss Jeanelle at the helm. She’s a strict task-master, but the players love her! If you need lessons in being organised at poker tournaments, then come to see Jeanelle!
Lvl 2 – 50/100 – 14/14 players
Afternoon flight picking up whilst the weather is a little bit grey. Perfect November afternoon solution, PLAY POKER!
Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 15/15 players
BREAK – 15 mins
Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 18/18 players
This may be the first time we have reached level four without an elimination; this is especially unexpected as Totti Lind is playing. #BantzOn
Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 17/19
We have made it to the introduction of the antes, and this afternoon’s players have decided not to have a big discussion about button or bb antes. Maybe standard antes are not entirely unpopular…?
Okay, disregard the above, the ante discussion happened, and it was beautiful and emotional.
Lvl 6 – 150/300/25 – 18/20 players
Carrying on as it slips into evening here in Malta. As usual the atmosphere is very relaxed and we think it might be about time to order some food.
Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 17/21 players
Couple of re-entries. There is flight 1C at 19:30, so there’s no pressure to re-enter the afternoon flight; that said, the structure is pretty mellow, so even sitting down now in level 7 will give you 70 bigs!
Lvl 8 – 250/500/50 – 17/21 players
Last two levels for registration. Day 1 plays to level 12.
Lvl 9 – 300/600/50 – 17/22 players
The day continues as one more player pops in a re-entry. This tournament is a re-entry tournament, but max 1 re-entry per flight.
BREAK – 15 mins
Lvl 10 – 400/800/100 – 16/25 players
Last three levels of the day for the 1B players and the 1C players are starting to slowly appear.
We have been discussing with players the idea of getting rid of one of the Day 1s next year, and only having 2 starting days… but then people keep turning up for all three.
If you have any ideas about how you’d like to see the tournament formats be next year, then let us know, because nothing is set in stone yet!
Contact Kat Redbet on FB with any cunning plans.
Lvl 11 – 500/1000/100 – 13/25 players
The end of the day is in sight for the day 1B players. Joe Hall, the event photographer, has just arrived to cover the end of one flight and the start of another.
Lvl 12 – 600/1200 – 12/25 players
Exits have slowed down as we enter the last level. Some players take the strategy that it’s go hard or go home at this stage. Some players wanna scrape into Day2 with even a shortstack, because we come back to 800/1600/200 and the levels are 45 mins, there is always hope!
Two of our past winners started Day2 with under 20 bigs… NEVER SURRENDER!!!
10 players made it through from Day 1B to Day 2 which starts at 14:00 on Sunday 25th November- blinds will be 800/1600/100.
