Team PokerSnowie performed admirably on the first day of the Battle of Malta, with 3 out of 5 players still in the tournament. The average chip stack of those still in is at an impressive 40k (starting chips were 20k), with Karsten leading the pack with a respectable 51k chips.
Marko had the most spectaculor exit: he was at 32k in first position with a pair of 9s. He raises to 700, and the 4th position raises to 2100 with everyone else folding. The Flop brings up 9-8-2 rainbow. Marko checks, and opponent bets 2500. The turn reveals a 3 of clubs - Marko checks again and the opponent bets another 2500, to which Marko raises 7500. The river brings up a 6 of clubs; the opponent only has 9000 left so Marko goes all in. Opponent reveals an AK of clubs.
If you're gonna exit, make sure it's spectacular!
Tomorrow PokerSnowie Team 2 will battle it out against 400 additional players - let's wish them all the best!
