Welcome to Day 3 of the PokerStars.com EPT13 Malta €5,300 Main Event

Chip leader Guillaume Diaz on Day 2
Chip leader Guillaume Diaz on Day 2

Day 3 of the PokerStars.com European Poker Tour Malta Main Event is here and only 90 players are still in the hunt for the title and a first prize of €355,700. In fact, the field will be just a few eliminations from the bubble when play resumes at Casino Portomaso.

The bubble nearly burst on Day 2, but play concluded with 90 players left and plans to pay only 87 of them.

Start-of-the-day chip leader Guillaume Diaz likely won’t fear the bubble, but several others will be desperately trying to book at least the €8,070 min-cash in this penultimate Main Event on the EPT.

Diaz bagged up 583,500 chips yesterday and the Frenchman is leading the field by a decent margin over Gianfranco Visalli (518,000) and Peter Ockenden (469,500). Plus, there are several big names left in the field, including five former EPT champions.

Dominik Panka, who won the PCA in season 10, is the one with the most chips. He’s fifth on the leader board with 385,000. Davidi Kitai (284,500), Frederik Jensen (191,500) and Roberto Romanello (82,000) are also still in with a shot at winning their second EPT crown. Jean Montury (85,000) can even win this exact same event for the second time. He was the EPT Malta champion in season 11.

There are still plenty of other notables in the field as well, including Sarah Herzali (362,000), Eugene Katchalov (284,00), Dan Shak (203,000), James Akenhead (176,000), Stephen Chidwick (100,500), Ole Schemion (86,000) and Maria Ho (40,500).

They’re all set to play five 90-minute levels today. They will start at level 15 with the blinds at 2,000/4,000 with a 500-chip ante.

Play begins at 12 p.m. local time in Malta and the PokerNews live reporting team will bring you all the action as it happens. It’s going be a day packed with action so be sure to tune in.

Alexandru Baron Secures Early Double

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante
Alexandru Baron
Alexandru Baron

Canada's Alexandru Baron has gotten of to a great start at the third day of the PokerStars.com EPT Malta, after his {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs} managed to take down Brian Altmans {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} all in preflop.

Preflop the action was folded around to Baron at the button, who needed a minute to contemplate his decision.

"I don't think he's gonna call", Altman in the big blind told Baron in regards to Viatcheslav Ortynskiy in the small blind, who still hadn't made it onto the tournament floor.

"Did you look yet?", the Canadian asked Altman.

"Not yet", Altman replied.

Baron spend an additional minute in deep thought before announcing all in, and after a quick peek at his cards Altman called with the queens. Luckily for Baron the dealer served an ace already on the flop, and with the board running out {5-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} {J-Clubs} {4-Spades}, Baron collected the double.

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante

Dmitry Yurasov shoved the button and Alain Fluri tanked for a long time in the small blind, then folded pocket fours.

Soon after, Jerry Odeen raised to 9,000 and Mikita Badziakouski gave it quite some consideration before three-betting to 27,000. The action folded back to Odeen and he shoved, Badziakouski called.

Jerry Odeen: {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}
Mikita Badziakouski: {A-Spades}{7-Spades}

The board came {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} and Odeen was the first casualty on Day 3. Fluri has two big blinds left.
