The Maltese Are Here

• Nível 2: 75-150, 0 ante
Jackie Cachia

A lot of poker players are living on Malta but only a few of them originate from this island country.

There are four Maltese players in the field today. One of them is Mark Vella. The local hero just lost a small pot against Natalia Panchenko but nothing much to worry about.

The other three players are really close to the top of the Maltese all-time money list. Charlo Azzopardi is placed in second on that list with $116,260. In fourth, we find Konrad Abela who's just $30,000 behind Azzopardi.

Jacqueline Cachia is placed in between those gentlemen.

She just lost a small pot against Miroslav Forman. He three-betted Cachia's opening raise to 1,050 and Cachia called. She check-called 900 on the {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{K-Clubs} flop.

Both checked when the {9-Clubs} came down on the turn. Cachia then check-folded to a 3,700-bet when the {A-Hearts} showed up at the river.
