Just waiting for one more body to start the clock on this event tonight!
Level 1 – 25/50 – 9 players
AAAAAANDD we’re off on the 5th event of the year!
It’s a small crew to start, but we expect that on a Friday night. If you’re playing at another casino, we wish you good luck, and remind you that reg is open here until 12:30 tonight, so if you bust, we’ll see you later!
Gentle and peaceful start tonight. The structure is chilled enough that one player hasn’t bothered regging yet, she’s just sat next to us playing a computer game on her phone. It’s not always about poker!
Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 13/14 player
One early bust out! One of redbet regs, Dario Pace Taliana ran into some trouble, but he’s an experienced player, he knows the bitter taste of variance, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him re-enter and come back to destroy souls.
BREAK – 15 mins
Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 15/16 players
Relaxed pace continues here. The starting stack is 30k, so if you wanna register right now, you’ll sit with 150 big blinds which is probably enough, right?
Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 15/16 players
Lvl 6 – 150/300/25 – 15/16 players
Quiet night here, but the time is passing quite quickly.
There’s always a lot of chat at these events, probably a side effect off the gentle tournament structure.
BREAK – 15mins
Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 16/18 players
One more elimination, as we go into the last three levels of registration.
Lvl 8 – 250/500/50 – 15/18 players
Still max chill here. This is the lowest number of entries we have had for a Day 1A… so this bodes well for a little bit of overlay maybe?
We’re pleased to say that this event has yet to miss its gtd prizepool, so we’re happy to accommodate a little bit of a donation to the Malta locals!
There’s two more Day 1s though, Day 1B Saturday 29th at 2pm and Day 1C at 19:30, so I guess we had better not speak too soon!
Into the last level of the entry period for Day 1A. There’s been a couple of re-entries, and it’s relaxed enough that the Tournament Director Jeanelle, is able to eat sweets with the security guard.
BREAK – 15mins
Lvl 10 – 400/800/100 – 12/19 players
Registration now closed for flight 1A. There is a cash table open and running with 3 open seats.
The promotional gift for this tournament was an exclusive deck of redbet cards, so we may find a bit of rummy happening here later on. That’s how we roll, folks!
Lvl 11 – 500/1000/100 – 11/19 players
Down to the wire now for the remaining players. As Phil Pearson, another redbet reg, said, “everyone is fighting to stay in now”. Day 2 is the prize from this point on!
Lvl 12 – 600/1200/100 – 8/19 players
The last blast is on.
