Play will commence at 2pm on Sunday 10th February.

Seating Draw:
table-draw-day-2

Players are arriving for the 2pm start.

Blind levels are 45mins on day 2 and we start at level 13, 800/1600/100.

Lvl 13 – 800/1600/100 – 24 players – av stack 83750

Clock start 14:01.redbetlive malta dragonara paul kelly kat arnsby poker

As a side note, we’ll just point out that because this is well structured tourney, players are currently paying .5bb less per orbit in antes than they would be in a consolidated ante structure.

Quite a few players are late for the start, including chip leader, Mr Stellato.
2pm is a pretty early start here in the Med.

Big hand early on here on table 2 as Markus Larsson opened to 4k and Flavia Gledes shoved all in for 50k. Marco La Grutta tank called and then, with the usual drama and noise, Saviour Spiteri called behind.

Mark Vella

Larsson did not look happy as he mucked his cards and the three way all in went to showdown. La Grutta was in a good position with AK versus Gledes’s AQ and Spiteri’s KJ. He stayed good and tripled up, eliminating Gledes and putting a dent in Spiteri’s stack.

Flavia Gledes eliminated in 24th place.

Alexsandrs Nizniks eliminated in 23rd place.

Martin Gamblin eliminated in 22nd place.

Lvl 14 – 1000/2000/200 – 21 players – av stack 96k

Jacqueline Harvey eliminated in 21st place.

Teemu Hietala eliminated in 20th place.

Eliminations coming thick and fast now as the shorter stacks make moves… and get obliterated…

Timely double up for Michele Montone after he shipped allin pre with A10 and won the flip versus Dieter Falzon’s pocket nines.

Per Steinar Sele eliminated in 19th place.

Play continues on two tables on this lovely, sunny afternoon.

Bouron Vincent eliminated in 18th place.

Lvl 15 – 1200/2400/200 – 17 players – av stack 125k

It’s the incremental levels that really make the difference to how fast the play feels in tournaments, and the traditional ante means players still get a .25bb discount on an orbit of play versus a consolidated ante structure, and that’s nine handed!

For players who mainly play one day turbos, this is one of the best poker tournament structures around for €200 buyin; tournament average is 50 bigs.

Marcin Trela eliminated in 17th place.

Mark Vella eliminated in 16th place.

Jacob Neilson eliminated in 15th place.

Jackie Cachia

Jackie Cachia

Jackie Cachia eliminated in 14th place.

We are getting closer to the final table, this is unusually early. There are some very strong players left in this field, so we think this will be an exciting final table.

BREAK – 15mins

Lvl 16 – 1500/3000/300 – 13 players – av stack 155k

Verot Timothee eliminated in 13th place.

Totti Lind was looking good for a double against Spiteri after he got it all in with KK v Spiteri’s JJ pre flop.
Q high flop was no threat… but the jack on the turn must have hurt like a wallop in the primaries with a giant hammer.

“I folded Ace Jack,” someone immediately stated. Thanks for sharing buddy… very unlucky Totti.

Totti Lind eliminated in 12th place.

Tortomasi Domenico eliminated in 11th place.

The tournament is now played hand for hand as the final table is 9 handed.

Neville Grech open shoved his short stack with A4 diamonds and got called by Stian Danielsen from the big blind with pocket nines.

Neville Grech

Neville Grech

KK6 flop with only one diamond looked safe for Danielsen, and the third King on the turn gave him a full house.
“Here comes a King,” Danielsen joked. There was no king… but there was an Ace. FT bubble double for Grech.

Lvl 17 – 2000/4000/400 – 10 players – av stack 201k

A double up for Danielsen after getting 30k in pre with AK versus Montone’s couldn’t-fold-for-the-extra A3.
K hi run out worked for Danielsen.

Minor boot off on table 2 after one player, who shall remain nameless, was taking about action during the hand… when he wasn’t in the hand.

Words were exchanged, feelings were hurt and a two-hand penalty was issued. All the boo-boos were kissed better and the adult game of poker continues.

Stian W. Danielsen eliminated in 10th place.

We have now reached the final table. There will be short break whilst the TD does a chipcount.

final-table

Play will restart in two minutes with daragh Davey going into the final table as the chip leader and Neville Grech as a short stack with a lot of work to do!

 

 

 

 

Lvl 18 – 2500/5000/500 – 9 players – av stack 223k

Final table is underway. Only 7 players will take money, so some players are hating life right now as they try to stay out of trouble until AFTER the shortest stacks have gotten themselves into trouble.

After losing a couple of small pots, Spiteri managed to get his full 90k stack in with QQ versus Stellato’s KJ preflop.
redbetlive-1129The ladies love Spiteri and he won the pot, he was quiet when he celebrated, and definitely did not shout really loudly and laugh and point.

Bone Fide sickness happened when Stellato open shoved 40 bigs from UTG with AJ, was called by Falzon with QQ and short stack Grech with KK.
Stellato had everyone covered, and thanks to Daragh Davey we know he had 30% against the two pairs.

No help for AJ as Grech casually turned quads and trebled up. Falzon suffered a small loss, but was left with 90k after winning the side pot.

Massive three way pot with Daragh Davey covering two players allin pre flop. Davey had AK, Montone had pocket sixes and Stellato had pocket jacks.
An ace on the flop and no last minute savers for the pocket pairs means that we’re down to seven players and Davey is the overwhelming chip leader.

Michele Montone eliminated in 9th place.

Andrea Stellato eliminated in 8th place.

BREAK – 30 mins

Lvl 19 – 3000/6000/600 – 7 players – av stack 285k

 

Dieter Falzon 7th place - €482

Dieter Falzon 7th place – €482

Dieter Falzon came back from the break and found an A on the button. He ripped 30 bigs into Davey on the big blind who woke up with pocket tens, snapped him off and sent him packing.

“You are running well, Sir,” Falzon said as he shook Davey’s hand.

Dieter Falzon eliminated in 7th place for €482.

Spiteri ran A9 into the AK of markus Larsson, all the chips went in on the ace high flop.

Spiteri called for a nine, begged for it, but it never came.

“That’s how you ladder!” shouted Grech as Spiteri walked away.

Saviour Spiteri eliminated in 6th place for €724.

Hougaard found himself in a bit of a mess after shoving his short stack allin pre with 86 of diamonds.
Larsson probably thought he was in good shape with pocket kings against eight high… but on this occasion a flopped flush draw turned into a flush for Hougaard by the river and he doubled up.

Play continues 5 handed.

Lvl 20 – 4000/8000/1000 – 5 players – av stack 402k

Hourgaard’s stack took a slapping when he couldn’t make pocket kings survive the A high gauntlet, and then the change was lost with 79 v A9.

Kresten Hougaard 5th place - €1085

Kresten Hougaard 5th place – €1085

Kresten Hougaard eliminated in 5th place for €1085.

Lvl 21 – 5k/10k/1k – 4 players – 502k

The four remaining players battle it out. They are all strong players and no-one is giving an inch.
They are 50 bigs deep average so this may take a while.

There are a lot of small pots being won and lost, with very few rivers being seen.
We have learned that if you eat a chocolate dessert next to Daragh Davey, he does a convincing impression of a starving street cat. Lols to sharing, obviously.

Grech found A7s on the button with 10 bigs and got it in. Unfortunately for him, Davey found AQ on the big blind.

Neville Grech - 4th place -€1347

Neville Grech – 4th place -€1347

Neville Grech eliminated in 4th place for €1327.

We have also lost Marco La Grutta… so quickly after Neville we missed the hand!

(update – he shipped A5 and Davey found a pair of nines that managed to hold.

Marco La Grutta - 3rd place - €1809

Marco La Grutta – 3rd place – €1809

Marco La Grutta eliminated in 3rd place for €1809.

BREAK – 15mins

Lvl 22 – 6k/12k/1k – headsup – av stack 1milly

Heads up play will begin with Davey as the chip leader.

Current stacks are Larsson with around 350k and Davey with the rest, but Larsson isn’t rolling over yet, taking the opportunity to 3-bet Davey’s last button open and getting a fold.

It’s back and forth here with the lads sniping at each other with pots small pots being won alternately. Larsson definitely isn’t giving this up easy.

Markus Larsson - 2nd place - €2412

Markus Larsson – 2nd place – €2412

Davey opened and was called to see 623 flop all spades. Larsson bet and was called, the turn was the K of spades.
Larsson tanked for a while before jamming all in for just under 300k into 1ook. Davey muttered soemething a bit grumpy sounding, but largely unintelligible before calling.

Larsson had a flopped Jack flush, but Davey turned the Q high flush and so it was game over.

Markus Larsson eliminated in 2nd place for €2412.

Daragh Davey IS THE WINNER for €4221.

Lvl 3 – 75/150 – 14/15 players

Grown to two tables here with 1 re-entry. Two players are having a minor argument about some personal beef. TD Paul stepped in and told them be quiet or get out.
It’s gone quiet.

BREAK – 15 mins

Lvl 4 – 100/200- 14/15 players

redbetlive-1071Play is coming to a close on the other flight, and there may be some crossover players as there are some last minute eliminations happening.

Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 13/17 players

Play always seems a little bit more aggressive on a Saturday night. There are a few local sharks in this field tonight, so fireworks are to be expected!

Lvl 6 – 150/300/50 – 13/17 players

Almost 1/2 way through Day 1C.

BREAK – 15mins

Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 13/17 playersredbetlive-1147

Three more levels of entry in the final flight for the February event. The gtd prizepool was breached earlier in the afternoon.

Lvl 8 – 250/500/50 – 12/17 players

It’s always about this time that poker play gets a bit more intense as people realise they have an hour to bust and re-enter or build a fighting stack to grind the last three levels.

Day 2 entry is not available in this tournament.

The photographer, Joe Hall, has left for the day now, but the link to the gallery with all the photos from Day 1A, B and C is available  at https://josephhallphotography.pixieset.com/g/redbetlive/

Couple of last minute entries as we go into the last level for entry today. Some of the players still here were here at the start of the afternoon flight as well, so they must be feeling a bit tired now. GL guys!

BREAK- 15 mins

Explosion of exits in level 10. Just under an hour of play left for today.

UCOP: WarmUp, Mini and Passport

We’re getting off to a banging micro start to 2019!

The UCOP (Universal Championship of Online Poker) is back, and as usual, redbet is making sure the micro guys have a chance to compete with the deep wallets and sharks.

UCOP WarmUp redbetWe’ve started UCOP early with a “WarmUp” series of 1c madcap rebuys.
Super cheap, super fun and a nice way to build a micro-roll to prepare for UCOP: Mini.
Every day between 1st-13th January there will be four tournaments with a 1c buyin and €25 gtd between 7pm-8pmGMT.
Three players only required to start the clock on these, and they are fast, unlimited rebuy, NLHE tournaments (15 mins only late reg/rebuy).

The UCOP: Mini is a series of micro poker tournaments that runs between 13th-27th January and the full schedule can be found here.social-media-1200x630
Satellites to the events are running from very small buyins, and we hope your bankroll from the UCOP: WarmUp series gets you through!

The UCOP: Passport is a series of larger buyin tournaments that runs from 27th January- 10th February, with the full schedule available here.
This is the big boy, and satties will run throughout the UCOP: Mini and UCOP: Passport periods.

social-media-1200x630There is a league attached to UCOP: Passport, with some pretty sick prizes on there. Check it out below, and we wish you some serious New Year Rungood during UCOP!

Goodbye 2018!

This time of year is usually pretty exhausting… assuming you’re an adult, obviously! Kids are having a great time right now.

Sometimes I do feel like a bit of a kid, I work in the gaming industry, and not in one of the serious jobs like legal or compliance.
I get to play and market my favourite game in the world… THE POKERS!!

The Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) is settling into its new software followng launch on redbet in September; no-one’s pretending there aren’t bugs, we’re not blind, but I can see the work they are doing, and I’m excited for 2019 in that respect.
Alex Scott is the boss of MPN, and he and his team are very committed, and are pushed and nagged by the various brand managers on the network.

Fireworks at a redbetLIVE event in Malta.

Fireworks at a redbetLIVE event in Malta.

We don’t think we always get it right, but we absolutely know we care about getting it right.

If you want to get involved in the discussion you can go to the MPN thread on 2+2 and talk directly to the head of poker (Alex), the online poker room manager (Peter) and the live poker tour manager (Richard); they all  go on there regularly and answer questions.

MPN don’t hire shills and hide behind them, they take it on the chin themselves.

There’s quite a lot going on on redbet and the network to end 2018 and see in 2019.

On 30th December there will be the €50k gtd BLOWOUT tournament and satellites are already running from 10c.
At the same time the Merry Missions promotion is running, which means you can play to win from the Missions and also qualify for BLOWOUT tournament.

The live tour arm of Microgaming poker will be in Tallinn, Estonia, 24th-27th January.
Tallinn is an amazing city, and I recommend anyone should visit; it’s one of those places where you’ll never be bored if you bust the poker!merry-missions-campaign-1200x628

I can’t go myself, because I’ll be in Blackpool with the BLUFFEurope writers’ team at the APAT Team Championships; we’re trying to better our points score from last year… which was a healthy ZERO POINTS!!
If you are planning Tallinn, make sure to buy some thermals, because in January, it will be a winter wonderland.

As ever, if you have any questions, or just wanna moan about bad beats, you can hit me up directly on Facebook as Kat Redbet or on Twitter as Redbet Kat!

I wish you all a joyful festive season, and hope you get some new year rungood!

redbetLIVE at Dragonara, November 2018: Day 1B

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

_mg_7821Play continues into level three with 15 players and it all relaxed here at Dragonara, as it always is. Even Stellato is behaving himself! Wonders never cease.

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.

BREAK – 15 minsredbet live poker dragonara malta november 2018

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

Jeanelle Brincat Dragonara Malta Poker November 2018 redbetLast 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.

25 players are returning and the average stack is 69600.

Lvl 13 – 800/1600/100 – 25 players – av stack 69600

First casualty of the day as Thomas Pupar could not find a double for his short stack.

Maurizo Autellitano eliminated in 24th place.

Raphael Toledo eliminated in 23rd place.

Losi Maria Rosa eliminated in 20th place.

Phil Pearson eliminated in 19th place.

Lvl 15 – 1200/2400/200 – 18 players – av stack 96k

Current chip leader is Andrea Stellato after Phil Pearson got fed up of his constant open raises and 3bet jammed 40 bigs with A9c. Stellato called with AQos and although chop outs were a reality on the turn, they did not come for Phil and his chips went flying towards the Mouth of Malta. Nice hand, Stellato!

Igino Xuereb eliminated in 17th place.

Mondelli Maurizio eliminated in 16th place.

We are powering through the players today! There are 7 paid places with a top prize of €3236 and min cash of €418.

BREAK – 30 mins

Players are now on the scheduled dinner break.

Lvl 19 – 3000/6000/500 – 9players – av stack 193k

The battle begins as only 7/9 players will get paid.
A bubble payment was discussed and rejected, so let play commence!

Instant doom for Luca Berita as he open shoved 99 from late position and bounced straight into Skawinski’s pocket tens which held up and sent Berita packing. GG, ciao!

Berman doubles against Galea after getting it in with top set on the turn and being called by Galea with the nut flush draw. The river was not the heart Galea needed, and so Berman is now a force to be reckoned with at this table.

Lvl 20 – 4000/8000/500 – 8 players – av stack 217k

After a tough grind, Durante Adolfo bust with AQ after getting it all in pre v Berman, who was holding pocket queens for the second time on this final table.
This elimination burst the bubble, and there are now 7 players remaining, with min cash at €418.

Lvl 21 – 5k/10k/1k – 7 players – av stack 248k

Mark Berman eliminated in 7th place after flopping two pair with 7-2 from the big blind. Bignalay haad sneaked in with QQ and rivered a 2nd pair to flick Berman out with a cash of €418.

Andrea Stellato eliminated in 6th place after both he and Skawinsk flopped a pair of Aces and then turned Aces up as the board paired. All the money went in and Skawinski had a Jack kicker with his Ace, Stellato only a 3.
Skawinski is now a monster chip lead.

Carnage as Skawinski wins a flip v Thomas. Thomas had no choice but to get 10bigs in with AQ pre. Skawinski had pocket sixes, but it wasn’t a race for long when Skawinski flopped a set and turned quads.
He is now monster chip lead plus a jaunty hat.

Raymond Galea eliminated in 4th place before we had even finished typing the last exit!

BREAK – 15 mins

Lvl 22 – 6k/12k/1k – 3 players – av stack 580k

Skawinski still way in front in terms of chips, holding 1/2 the chips in play.
However, with the shallow structure, the other two are far from out yet.

Play continues, and with 1st prize being almost twice 3rd prize, the competition is ON!

We are heads up after Falzon ran AQ into Bignaley’s AK preflop and although the turn gave him a gutter, it was not to be and he was elinated in 3rd place for €1566.

 Lvl 23 – 8k/16k – Headsup -av stack 870k

The two remaining players have flattened out the remaining money, and they are taking at least €2500 each with €428 and the trophy to play for.

We have a winner after a short heads-up! Well player to all players, and our winner, Vincennt

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.

Another level, another re-entry. This has blown our tiny minds here to be honest, we have now 59 total entries and 3 levels of entry left in this afternoon’s flight, with another flight this evening!
This was always intended to be a small, local event for local players to enjoy some serious deepstack poker without having to sell a kidney; we are overwhelmed at the support, and wish all players the best of luck!

 Lvl 8 – 250/500/50 – 15/21 players

The competition heats up as such deep stacks and slow structures mean that everyone has plenty of chips to play with. 5bets pre anyone?

We play until the end of Level 12 today, and registration for flight 1C opens in about 20 minutes.

Option A followed by option B if option A goes down the wrong way?

Lvl 11 – 500/1000/100 – 8/22 players

Active last level for the players of Day 1B as they smelled the new flight starting and did not like the look of a short stack.

Lvl 12 – 600/1200/100 – 7/22 players

Going into the last level of play there are just 7 soldiers remaining. Will they all survive? Closing chipcounts will be posted here as soon as we have them.
