Level 9: 500/1,000 (1,000)
We caught up with 2019 Battle of Malta High Roller champion Chris Da Silva on the break while he was chatting with Charles Akadiri.
Akadiri still has a stack but Da Silva was out of chips.
“So, are you already on 300K?” we asked.
“I was well on my way, but lost my stack,” shared Da Silva. “I am debating on whether to re-enter the Main Event today with 25 big blinds or wait until tomorrow.”
“You had less when you won the High Roller,” we reminded. “You entered during the start of Day 2 with just 15 big blinds.
“Well, that was when I was good at poker,” Da Silva shared.
We can confirm that Da Silva is an amazing player but maybe things haven’t been going as well for him as of late.
“Well, you usually do well in Malta,” we reminded Da Silva.
“I did flip a coin,” Da Silva shared. “If it came up heads, I said I would re-enter after the break.”
“Well, what’s the verdict?” we asked.
“It wound up heads,” Da Silva replied.
“I guess you have your answer then,” we said.
Shortly after, Da Silva headed to the registration desk to get back into the event but not before allowing us to snap a photo of him with his lucky coin.
We wish Da Silva the best of luck in his quest to become the latest Battle of Malta Main Event champion.
