BoM2018Hills8

Grosvenor Poker Ambassador Andy Hills has had a stunning year on the tournament circuit, but this week he’s had, “Probably the best run in any live comp I’ve ever played.”

He’s won several big tournaments in 2018 but notes that they were “not even close” in comparison to the massive 3,816-strong field in Malta. This is his second MPNPT final table appearance after coming ninth in Bratislava, and he is looking forward to improving on that result today, as well as adding a second Malta flag to his online trophy cabinet.

“I think I have the two most polarized Malta flags of anyone on the Hendon Mob,” he said, pointing to his last Malta cash – a mere €420. “I’ve bypassed the four-figure cash and gone straight for five figures.” Then, after a pause: “Well, hopefully.” He’s being supported at the rail today by his girlfriend Georgi.
