Martin Finger opened with a raise on the button. Pratyush Buddiga three-bet to 3,200 from the small blind, Sylvain Loosli cold-called from the big blind, and Finger called as well. On the flop, Buddiga continued with 6,000, which netted two snap-folds from his opponents.
Buddiga is looking to repeat his performance from EPT Barcelona, where he took down the €25,500 Single Day High Roller for a whopping €690,275. The American started off well here in Malta, finishing fourth in yesterday's €10,300 High Roller, boosting his bankroll with a €61,690 payday.
