While the 700+ players of the main event have left the Great Hall to ransack the buffet, the fourth and final flight of the Battle of Malta 2018 has begun.
300 players have sat down to go for the turbo edition of day 1, and behind them there are still more than 100 players waiting to jump in.
Level times have been set to 20 min, so that we can play down to 15% of the field before the breakfast room of the Intercontinental opens, and also, there are NO re-entries for day 1D.
It’s a traditional, fast-paced slaughterhouse, except the survival rate of 15% is exceptionally high.
We now have four tournaments running simultaneously – main event day 1C, main event day 1D, the Ladies event and the PLO. That’s another first for the Battle of Malta.
