Malta is every bit as beautiful as I remember. I was out here to play the WPT event but had a bit of a problem with sending my buy-in over and sadly arrived with only one bullet instead of two for the re-entry. I played Day 1b and it was a bit of deja vu as at my starting table was my friend (and really great poker player) Fabrice Soulier. We played last year at WPT Malta as well and both had very frustrating days from what I remember. Sadly, I didn’t make Day 2 but I did go and have a drink after play finished with my teammates Tony G and Marvin Rettenmaier to catch up on their stories.
I’m always surprised when people miss out on this tournament because I think that Malta is one of the best stops on the WPT Europe calendar. The nightlife is great here and being able to lay on the beach and get some sun is the perfect antidote for bad beats. I’ll be here for a few more days enjoying the scenery and then it’s back to Italy for a little time away from the tables!
