Last Minute Chance to Get to Malta Poker Festival

mpfMore than six months ago, I convinced the redbet Casino VIP manager that he wanted to spend some of his budget on poker packages for the Malta Poker Festival, 1st-6th November 2018.

The reasons for this were two-fold:

  • 1) I genuinely believed it would be a nice gift to casino VIP players. Many play poker anyway, and I figured those that didn’t would be up for a nice Mediterranean holiday. Big live poker events are mainly handled by the event organiser, so to reward casino VIPs in this way is cost and effort effective for smaller brands like redbet.
  • 2)I couldn’t afford the sponsorship out of the poker budget alone.

Malta Poker Festival have a pretty good sponsorship deal, and redbet got 30 x packages of €1400 value included in the cost (we add €250 expenses to make the value to poker players €1650).
The agreement was that 15 packages belonged to the redbet poker department and 15 belonged to the redbet casino VIP department.

I’ve had great fun giving these away, and unlike some smaller poker brands, I was not desperately worried about overlay, because I had explained to my boss that we had agreed a marketing cost, and as a result had 15 x “shop window” products to shift.

At the time of writing, of the 30 Malta Poker Festival Packages that redbet bought from the organiser, 13 have been given to redbet Casino VIPs as rewards for being valued customers, 8 have been won in package finals (1 to go -5pmGMT 28th Oct), 4 have been given away in social media promos and 2 poker influencers were invited by me personally (Simon Jones cos he’s good craic and supports our brand, and Donna Morten who supports every poker brand).

Now, if you’re good at maths, you’ll count that as 28 packages… and 28 is a number that is 2 lower than 30; it’s that kinda maths skillz that make my bosses respect me.

The two extra packages are casino VIP ones that they did not get around to giving away, and I had a discussion with the VIP manager as to what he wants to do with them.
He had a couple of ideas, but in the end, I convinced him that the lowstakes poker community would be grateful for them, probably more than casino VIPs might.

He said, “yeah, go on then, offer them up”.

Boom. €3300 donated by the redbet casino team to the redbet poker function.
We probably owe them a beer!

I’ve decided to slap on two tournaments to win these packages.
I could have done a freeroll, but decided to give an advantage to players who have tickets already because they’ve been supporting the satellite route.
I have decided on a €1.25 unlimited rebuy tourney and a €6.25 unlimited rebuy tourney because these are the most common outstanding tickets in the system.
The lower value tickets can still be used to win €1.25 or €6.25 tickets for use in these aggro rebuy finals. Both structures will be quite aggressive, but the €6.25 will be less so due to the higher buyin.

They will happen at GMT 6pm (€1.25) 7pm (€6.25) in addition to the final scheduled package satty (€156.25) which starts at 5pm on Sunday 28th Oct.

For anyone who hasn’t seen the satellite route, there are many daily flips to win €1.25/€6.25 tickets and the route starts at 1c. The lower value flips are in place until Oct 25th.

The reason I’m writing this is for transparency about the methods we use to generate members, sales and package value.
I have nothing to hide in the way my company, or my poker network does business, so I may as well tell you about it, huh?

See you at the tables, or hopefully, in Malta very soon!

redbetLIVE at Dragonara: September 2018

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!

Lvl 2 – 50/100 – 10/10 playersa6

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

_mg_7787Not much movement here. Hands are won and lost, chips pass between players, flops are dealt, then turns, then rivers. This is what happens at poker tournaments you see?

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!

_00a5461Lvl 9 – 300/600/50 – 14/19 players

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.

redbetLIVE at Dragonara, Malta, July 2018: Day 2

31 players return today to compete for a total prizepool of €15660.
The prize breakdown will be published shortly, as the players are arriving and opening their bags.

Clock started and the 31 redbettors get to it!
Well, not quite 31, as three players are running a bit late. We suspect Saturday Night Shenanigans got the better of them!

Prize breakdowns announced, with all the final table players getting paid.

Flavia Guedes eliminated in 31st place.

John Sammut

John Sammut

John Sammut eliminated in 30th place, with redbetLIVE regular, Igino Xuereb being the benefactor of his chips.

Marek Jarub eliminated in 29th place.

George McIntosh eliminated in 28th place after Aicseli Hosig 3-bet him light with KhJh preflop, was called by McIntosh with AK and found the magic backdoor to flopping nut flushes.
After they hand, Hosig said, “yeah, I was betting you light, but I did have KK and QQ the last two times I did it,” it did not seem as if McIntosh was too fascinated by the story.

Lvl 14 – 1000/2000/200 – 26 players remaining – av stack 100k

Ferdi Duman eliminated in 27th place.

Dario Pace Talliana eliminated in 26th place.

Antoine DeGiorgio  eliminated in 25th place.

Lvl 15 – 1200/2400/200 – 24 players remaining – av stack 108k

Tunes are playing and it’s Scorchio. We love a bit of Sunday afternoon poker.

These sneaky incremental levels are what slows the structure down. In theory, this allows more skilled players an advantage, but if one’s strategy is nit the f*** up and hang on for a monster, it allows more hands to be dealt to bring the monster.
We personally love a deep structure, but what are your thoughts? More for gamble or more for playing complex street poker?

Simon Forster eliminated in 24th place.

Patrick Gulldek eliminated in 23rd place when he got all in pre-flop with A8 v A9. Everybody loves a chopped pot? Gulldeck would have, but a bag of rags made sure the nine kicker booted him railward.

Mikael Thomas eliminated in 22nd place.

Riccardi Rossi eliminated in 18th place.

Madness on table 1 as Colley and Xuereb get themselves involved in a big pot. Colley had 40% equity preflop against Xuereb’s short stack, but couldn’t realise it as he turned a full boat to dead her.

She was left with 6 bigs and got it in next hand against Berman’s KK.
Xuereb decided not to rest, and got the rest of his newly doubled stack in against Berman with QQ.

When the flop delivered  a Q for Xuereb, who’s turning boats for fun today, he was left with a massive stack and Anna Colley has been eliminated in 16th place.

As a reminder to all, there are package satellites to Battle of Malta and The Malta Poker Festival playing on redbet online poker later today, with over €1.5milly gtd in prizepools between 25th October and 6th November this  year.

Zoltan Kavai

Zoltan Kavai

Zoltan Kavai found a spot to get his remaining chips in the middle preflop with A10 versus Berman’s pocket 66  and couldn’t find his half of the equity in that particular hand to be eliminated in 12th place.

Lvl 18 – 2500/5000/500 – 11 players – av stack 225k

Marc Schembri eliminated in 11th place after working a short stack like a beast for a long time.

Players now play hand for hand as we approach the dinner break and the bubble boy position looms.

David Lappin eliminated in 10th place after he lost chunks getting unlucky with KK getting outflopped by Liverhall’s pocket 10s after they got it all in preflop.

Players have now reached the final table and the money.
They have gone on a thirty minute dinner break.

Xuereb was getting short but managed to double against Hosia after getting it in with a flush draw on the flop versus Hosia’s top pair and finding the card he needed on the river. Play continues 8 handed.

Clint Sammut has apparently been “on 14 big blinds for 17 hours”. At least your decisions are easier?

Xuereb got his money in with two pair on a K610 flop against Hosia’s pocket Aces, and he was looking pretty solid until the river when an Ace materialised to give Hosia a set and eliminated Xuereb in 5th place for €1253.

 Lvl 23 – 8k/16k/2k – 4 players – av stack 652k

The remaining players are all experienced and lots of small pots are being won and lost without showdowns.

The battle continues 4 handed on the final table, with nobody giving an inch.
They did discuss reducing the length of the blind levels, but the current short stack, Hosia, declined the suggestion. Well, wouldn’t you??

Lvl 24 – 10k/20k/2k – 4 players – Av stack 652k

Akseli Hosia eliminated in 4th place for €1566 after getting brutalised by a miserable run of cards and then being forced to call off Sammut’s button shove with A6os and 15 bigs.
Sammut had AK and the runout went his way. Three remain.

The players are electing to take a 15 min break slightly ahead of schedule before continuing.

 Lvl 25 – 15k/30k/3k –  3 players – av stack 870k

Battle continues with a 25 big blind average, although Berman is currently chip lead.

After losing a race with 77 v Larsson’s AQ all in pre flop, he has been attacked from all sides, getting involved in pots with dirty runouts.
Mark Berman eliminated in 3rd place for €1566

Larsson and Sammut had a short break before agreeing to chop the remaining prizepool 50/50 and play out for the trophy.

After 7 hands, Sammut emerged the victor and raised the trophy with a song.

redbetLIVE at Malta Poker Festival 2018

maltapokerfestivallogoWe’re SUPER excited to be part of the Malta Poker Festival 2018!

It will be held at Portomaso Casino, Malta, November 1st-6th, 2018 with a main event buyin of €550 (€500k gtd) with a great live tournament team that are massively experienced at running tournaments of this magnitude.

We’re excited, and that excitement is spilling over into our online poker room, which you can check out HERE, where we have gone ahead and set up a satellite route for you starting at just 1c.

The first four levels of this satellite tree are in the flip format, because we know it’s not just the amount of money that keeps low stakes players away from live events, it’s also the time required to grind up to the package final!

In this structure, you can register for these tournaments and let them play whilst you sleep, or work, or play Fortnite, whatever you like!

From the €6.25 buyin stage, the “real” play begins, but the tournament tickets are designed to last for the full duration of the promotion, so you have full flexibility and control.redbetLIVE Malta Poker Festival Banner

A deposit of just €10 will give you 1000 entries to LEVEL1, and the satellites are available now in the lobby for early registration.

Players can join the satellite tree at whatever branch suits their bankroll/spare time and we look forward to meeting you in Malta in November as part of team redbetLIVE!

We will be adding to this promotion as the months continue, but we just wanted to get it started as soon as possible, so watch this space for further developments!

What is it about Saturday night that means poker players drink more beers?

Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 16/16 players

We’re pleased to see Malta Poker Festival organiser, Ivonne Monteleagre taking a seat in flight 1c.
One of the best things about poker in Malta is that the organisers of events are all seriously passionate poker players.
There will be satellites for the Malta Poker Festival on redbet online poker from 13th May, with micro-feeders starting at just 0.01!!

BREAK – 15 mins

Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 19/19 players

Couple of entries in the break.
We’ve just had a firework display for the 2nd night in a row! They love their fireworks in Malta, just one of the many, many reasons to come and visit this beautiful country!

Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 20/21 players

We are short of the guarantee by one entry! This event has not missed its gtd prizepool in 8 previous events, so tbf, it’s about time we donated a little bit!

_d3_1657Lvl 6 – 150/300/50 – 16/22 players

As the beer flows, the players fall!

BREAK – 15 mins

Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 17/24 players

We realise we should be working… but Ivonne Montealgre has just bust to Seb Rebhan, so we’re gonna drink champagne, dance about and talk about the upcoming Malta Poker Festival in November.
Satellites for this Malta epic event will start on redbet on 13th May, so keep your eyes peeled!

We’ve just lost Antoine Degiorgio AKA “Twanny The Trophy Hunter”, as we’ve just learned his official nickname in the Malta poker community!

Lvl 8 – 250/500/50 – 16/24 players

We’ve just lost Antoine Degiorgio AKA “Twanny The Trophy Hunter”, as we’ve just learned his official nickname in the Malta poker community!

Lvl 9 – 300/600/50 – 15/24 players

Play has tightened up as we come towards the end of the entry period for flight 1c.

BREAK – 15mins_d3_1670

Lvl 10 – 400/800/100 – 15/24 players

Totti Lind lost a decent sized pot with AK v AA on a K high flop. Lind is stacked up enough to sustain it.

Lvl 11 – 500/1000/100 – 14/24 players

Two more levels of play, and the remaining players have certainly got their game faces on.

Lvl 12 – 600/1200/100 – 13/24 players

Last level of play today, players are much quieter than they were 4 hours ago, because busting now would be pretty ugly!

Day 2 Qualifiers from Flight 1C, Day 2 starts at 2pm Sunday 6th May:

day-1c-qualifiers

redbetLIVE at Dragonara, May 2018: Day 1B

Lvl 1 – 25/50 – 5/5 players

Clock started at 14:01 with five players. The afternoon flight is always slow to start, but we’ve never had less than two tables in an afternoon flight.
The weather is beautiful today, so we can see why people want to squeeze in a bit  of sun before the come along!

Lvl 2 50/100 – 7/7 players

The players are creeping in.
Some computer issues with the media today, but it’s fine, laptop thrown in the sea and we’re going to live on a deserted island where technology cannot find us.

Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 8/8 players

Knut Rysstad redbetLIVE Malta May 2018TD Paul has just had to make what he described as a difficult ruling.
A player stated 700 when the intent was 7000, facing a 1200 bet when the big blind was 100. Paul decreed the raise would be minimum, as the amount stated was not enough for a raise.
We 100% support the ruling here. Paul finds it difficult, because he has great respect for the player in question.
It shows that a good TD would rule against his own mother if it was the right rule, and sometimes it is hard to swallow.

BREAK – 15 mins

Lvl 4 – 100/200 – 9/9 players

One unfortunate bustout, after all the money went in on the turn after Igino hit trips with Q8 on 6828.
Dario Pace Taliana came from behind with QQ, but the river gifted him the case Queen for a better boat and he scooped a massive pot.

Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 9/11 players

Gross hand here between Shane Dempsey and Rudolf Gun after Dempsey opened UTG and it passed to Gun on the button.
Gun raised to 2k and Dario Pace Taliana called from the small blind; Dempsey also called.

The flop was J high, all diamonds, and it checked to Gun who bet 3k.
Taliana passed and Dempsey raised to 7.5k. Gun asked how much Dempsey was playing and when the answer came 20k, Gun raised all in.
Dempsey snapped it and turned over KJ with the Kd.

Lina Teuma and Rudolf Gun

Lina Teuma and Rudolf Gun

Gun flipped AJ with the Ace of diamonds… “I’m in bad shape here” said Dempsey… no sh*t, dood!

90% equity wasn’t enough for Gun as the turn showed itself as the King of clubs and the dealer couldn’t find a cheeky diamond on the river.
Gun took it well, a mere moment of poker pain flickering across his face before he regained composure.

Gun had Dempsey well covered, so we continue 9 handed.

Lvl 6 – 150/300/25 – 9/11 players

BREAK – 15mins

Lvl 7 – 200/400/50

Very relaxed vibe here as we cruise into the last 3 levels of entry for flight 1b.
Flight 1c starts at 19:30.

Dario Pace Taliana

Dario Pace Taliana

Lvl  8 – 250/500/50 – 9/11 players

 Taliana is back to starting stack, but, in his words “that’s okay, cos I gave them to Jackie”.
Such a friendly game!

Lvl 9 – 300/600/50 – 9/12 players

BREAK – 15mins

Lvl 10 – 400/800/100 – 9/12 players

Last three levels of entry for day 1b and Day 1c is is about to start with players already registered.
You can join 1b with 35 bigs  or Day 1c with 600 bigs, your call.
Or do the former, followed by the latter, the choices are endless.

Lvl 11 – 500/1000/100 – 9/12 players

9 players hanging on now… will they all make it to Day 2?

Lvl 12 – 600/1200/100 – 7/12 players

No, they won’t.
Down to 7 in this flight as we enter the last level of Day 1.
Flight 1C is well under way with 16 players seated.
