15 mins to go on clock start here at Dragonara as flight 1B runs into the last three levels of play.
Clock starts at 19:31 and the rodeo rolls for the second time today!
Lvl 2 – 50/100 – 7/7 players
Some serious looking faces on this table, the poker passion is palpable.
Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 12/13 players
Few players rocked up for action in the last level, there is quite a lot of laughing now, so people seem to be settling in.
BREAK – 15 mins
A few faces from yesterday and this afternoon have returned to the battle to try again. GL everyone!
We have also learned tonight that Andrea Stellato invented limp strategy and floating… so Stellato is a floater?
Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 19/21 players
We have reached the gtd prizepool amount here, and there are still players registering. This is great news, and with only 17 through to Day2 so far there is plenty of room for more tomorrow!
Lvl 6 – 150/300/25 – 19/21 players
Nearly half way through Day 1C and the average stack is 110 bigs, so it’s no lie when we say this tournament structure is very gentle!
Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 20/24 players
Players still sneaking in, possibly after busting one of the other local games. Malta is our favourite place in the whole world for low-stakes poker, because whenever you come out here, whatever time of year, you’ll be able to get a decent game of low-stakes poker.
Lvl 8 – 200/400/50 – 21/25 players
Lvl 9 – 300/600/50 – 18/26 players
A couple of exits and a couple of re-entries, the circle of life continues.
People are having fun and a few are drinking some vino and enjoying the pleasures of Saturday night.
Lvl 10 – 400/800/100 – 17/27 entrants
Into the last three levels of the day.
Lvl 11 – 500/1000/100 – 17/27
We are playing on 2 tables here and players may be entering the cling on for Day 2 stage.
On the other hand, as Antoine told us in the break, he’s “feeling creative”… so anything could happen.
Attention all players! If you move the button for the dealer, the etiquette is to notify them!
You can say “button good” or something, or just tap the table sharply twice with the button as you move it. The poor old dealer might move it twice and then there’s a right old carry-on!
Attention all dealers! Seriously, pay attention; cos even when the players mess stuff up, it’s still your fault. #DealerLife
Oh these people wanna make Day2.
We have 14 minutes till we stop the clock on the final flight of the November event. The players will then play 3/4/5 final hands to close down the day.
We have had 72 players for this event and this generates a prizepool of €12960.
The full payout breakdown will be published tomorrow.
12 players made it through to Day 2 from Day 1C.
Play starts at 14:00 tomorrow with blinds of 800/1600/100.
