Ils étaient 895 lors de la première édition pour le sacre de Jean Montury (Saison 11) et encore 651 lors de la Saison 12 pour la victoire de Niall Farrell. Alors que les inscriptions sont ouvertes jusqu'à l'entame du Jour 2 de l'European Poker Tour Malta Saison 13 by PokerStars, mardi à midi, l'affluence provisoire du tournoi n'est que de 459 joueurs soit une baisse de presque 50%.

Après un départ timide, et 134 entrants lors du Jour 1A, ce sont 325 joueurs qui ont disputé le Jour 1B, lundi au Casino Portomaso de Malte. Au maximum 162 rescapés ont emballé des jetons à l'issue de 8 niveaux de 75 minutes. Ils rejoignent les 61 survivants de dimanche pour former un groupe provisoire de 223 ambitieux.

Chipleader à l'issue du Jour 1A avec 185 100 jetons, Dan Shak a perdu son trône. Andras Nemeth a pris le pouvoir en montant 192 700 jetons lors du Jour 1B. Le Hongrois est néanmoins le seul joueur du field à avoir dépassé l'Américain.

De nombreux réguliers du circuit se sont glissés parmi les joueurs qui ont multiplié leur tapis de départ par quatre ou plus, soit un tapis approchant les 120 000 jetons. Le Suédois Mats Karlsson, l'Ukrainien Eugene Katchalov, le Gallois Robert Romanello, la joueuse PMU Poker Poker Sarah Herzali, les Winamax Davidi Kitai et Guillaume Diaz ou encore le vainqueur de l'IPT Malta Ismael Bojang ont franchi cette marque.

Juste derrière on retrouve la joueuse Thi Nguyen ou encore Asker Aloev, déjà vainqueur de deux sides ici à Malte, et Mikita Badziakouski qui s'était illustré sur un high-roller en début de festival. Ludovic Geilich, Dominik Panka, Dietrich Fast et Anton Morgenstern ont aussi réalisé une belle journé.

Martin Staszko, Benny Spindler, Pierre Calamusa, Pierre Merlin, Erwann Pecheux, Johan Guilbert et Gaëlle Baumann ont franchi le premier obstacle au contraire de Jake Cody, éliminé sur la dernière main. Vainqueur à Barcelona après s'être qualifié pour 27€, Sebastian Malec a chuté d'entrée, tout comme Adam Owen, Allan Sannier, Valentin Messina, Adrien Delmas, Alexander Lakhov, Yorane Kerignard, Antoine Saout, Emil Patel, Tobias Peters, Quentin Lecomte, Arnaud Peyroles, Kitty Kuo, Niall Farrell, Jimmy Guerrero, Romain Lewis, Gilles Huet ou Jan Bendik.

Rendez-vous mardi à partir de midi pour suivre le Jour 2 de l'EPT Malta.

Gancedo Doubles in Last Hand

zedmaster84 • Niveau 8: 400-800, 100 ante

Thi Nguyen raised to 1,800 in the very last hand and all opponents folded. Nguyen tabled the {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} with a smile on the face and bagged up more than double the average.

One table over, Rafael Gancedo shoved his last 5,600 and Ivan Deyra called with {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} in the big blind. Gancedo had the {A-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and the board {8-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} provided the ace for the double and left Deyra rather short.

Five More Hands

[user13328] • Niveau 8: 400-800, 100 ante

The clock has been paused for the remainder of the day and all tables play five more hands before this day ends!

We'll be back shortly with the latest updates and chip counts.

Geilich Surprised by the Way Lanuza Doubled

[user13328] • Niveau 8: 400-800, 100 ante

From first position Felix Bleiker raised to 2,000. Next to him Ludovic Geilich three-bet to 4,800 and Gaetano Brignone made the call.

It was folded to Armando Collado Lanuza in the big blind and he moved all in for 19,700. Bleiker folded and so did Geilich, but Brignone made the call.

Geilich couldn't believe what he saw when Lanuza opened {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} and Brignone had {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}. "O wow", Geilich sighed.

The board ran out {5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and Lanuza doubled up.

"I don't know what just happened", Geilich said. Bleiker claimed he folded pocket jacks, Geilich said he had tens.

Lanuza had an explanation for his move. "When I play football this is my number, nine!"

Cody Crippled; Triples and Doubles Up

zedmaster84 • Niveau 8: 400-800, 100 ante

A raising war broke out between Walter Treccarichi and Jake Cody and the former ended up all in for 43,900 with the {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}. Cody only had {J-Hearts}{J-Clubs} and the board came {4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}.

That left Cody with just a few chips and Andras Nemeth stole the blinds and antes the next hand.

Then, Cody was in the big blind with another 400 behind. Treccarichi raised from the cutoff to 1,700 and Angelo Mancini called in the small blind, Cody called all in out of the big blind. The two remaining active players checked down the board {Q-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}. Mancini showed {K-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, Treccarichi the {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs} and Cody tripled with {J-Hearts}{8-Clubs}.

Fast forward another hand, Andrea Cortellazzi raised to 2,200 from the cutoff and Mancini called. Cody shoved for 4,400 in the small blind and Cortellazzi reshoved for 21,300 to force out Mancini.

Cody: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Cortellazzi: {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}

The board ran out {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{4-Spades}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Cody was suddenly back in it. Cortellazzi busted a few hands later.
