Level 5: 200/400 (400)
Day 1c is now officially bigger than both Day 1a and Day 1b combined with the total field now approaching 1,300 entries. One player that will need to re-enter if he wants a shot at a massive payday in the Battle of Malta Main Event is Vittorio Morello after he lost his stack to Sharon Moalem as follows:
Morello fired out for 4,000 into a pot of around 12,000 on the 3♥T♥6♥ flop. Moalem called while Giuseppe Privitera folded. Morello bet 5,000 on the 5♠ turn. Moalem called and Morello bet another 5,000 on the 9♣ river. Moalem asked for a look at Morello’s stack before he jammed for far more than the 10,000 remaining in Morello’s stack if he folded.
Morello shrugged his shoulders before he called. He then attempted to muck his cards after Moalem turned over the A♥8♥. The dealer turned over Morello’s cards as it was an all-in and a call and he held an overpair with K♦K♠.
Sharon Moalem – 95,000
Giuseppe Privatera – 12,000
Vittorio Morello – 0
