Lvl 1 – 25/50 – 6/6players
Started bang on time today with some of the beloved redbet regs who turned up in time to play.
Traffic for this event is a little slow this time around, but we know the local players are busy trying to qualify for the two massive events happening on the Island in a few weeks.
redbet is sponsoring both Battle of Malta and The Malta Poker Festival, and online qualifiers are available now with feeder routes and finals for both complete packages and seat only tickets.
You can check out the full schedule by creating a poker account and looking at the poker lobby. (drop down menu on top left if you prefer a language other than English).
We’re just gonna sit here and chill for the afternoon. What you gonna do?
As expected, the players are arriving slowly for this afternoon.
Feel free to come and join us, this is a nine handed tournament, so there are seats open, you’ll sit down with 300 blinds right now.
Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 14/14 players
The gentle trickle of players continues! Satellite winner Totti Lind has rocked up to play, we’re just glad he could find the casino!
BREAK – 15 mins
Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 14/15 players
Jackie Cachia AKA PokerMamma continues to run like a centipede with no legs as she manages to smash into Totti Lind’s AA preflop. We feel here pain, it’s not possible to overcome the #ScandiLuckbox effect. Unlucky PokerMamma, hope the 2nd bullet hits the mark!
Crusing into level five, the atmosphere is friendly.
Three lads have turned up to see what’s happening. Should we convince them to play, or try to preserve the hope of some overlay?
Lvl 6 – 150/300/50 – 18/21 players
Sudden flurry of players as the afternoon sun begins to dip.
We get it guys, we love poker, but being able to sit on a beach all day in September is pretty good too!
BREAK – 15mins
Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 14/21 players
Unusual for us to get more players on a Saturday afternoon than a Friday night, but hey, who can really predict the poker action on the Rock Of Poker?
Lvl 8 – 250/500/50 – 13/21 players
Technically still an hour to go of late reg on this flight, but reg for the evening flight opens at 19:30, so all the options are yours!
Lvl 9 – 300/600/50 – 13/21 players
BREAK – 15 mins
Lvl 10 – 400/800/100 – 13/21 players
Entry is now closed for flight 1B but open for Flight 1C!
Lvl 11 – 500/1000/50 – 12/21 players
Average stack in this flight is currently 52k which is more than enough to be a contender tomorrow, so we expect to see play tighten up a bit now as people want to get to Day2.
Playing six handed is much more fun anyway, as it’s more likely to be a good move to play a wider range of cards!
Lvl 12 – 600/1200/100 – 11/21 players
Into the last level of play.
We will play down to 10 mins remaining in this level and then we will draw for 3/4/5 final hands.
Our players always seem to pick 5 hands blind from the card selection… we guess they just like playing!
