Live Poker action from the heart of the Mediterranean!

The international event attracted poker players from all over the globe each with the intention of taking home the biggest share of the €189,000 prize pool.

The event, by Titan Poker, kicked off at 16:45Hrs with all the players at their seats, eager to start the tournament which is taking place over the next three days at the Casino Di Venezia Malta.

Players were given a stack of 10,000 chips at the start of the tournament with which they started placing well calculated bets at these early stages of the game. Blinds levels started at 25/50 and will increase every 45 minutes for the first four levels of the game. They will be extended to 60 minute levels from then on, for the duration of the tournament.

The first player out of the game, Julien Kapitzke from Germany had a surprising beat whilst holding King Kong [KK] when we pushed all in against an opponent who hit a set of 9's on the flop whilst holding pocket 9's. Julien's oppponent called this push and was delighted when his set maintained their strength at the river, sending Julien out, and doubling up at such an early stage of the tournament.
