EPT Malta: Urbanovich leading Stud final; Big numbers in the Turbo Deepstack
There's just seven players left in the €1k EPT Limit Stud Championships and leading the way? Dzmitry Urbanovich. The Polish player has already won three events at the EPT Malta Festival and is looking to add a fourth. He also has another motive - the three victories have put him in the lead for the Player of the Year award ahead of Davidi Kitai.
Seven players also remain in the €2k event including Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov and Stephen Chidwick. Everyone left is currently guaranteed a minimum payout of €20,300 with €119,000 still available for the winner.
The €300 Turbo Deepstack that began at 9pm saw 250 entries involved after registration closed. Currently, around 150 remain with 31 places getting paid a minimum of €640 while first prize receives €15,385.
In the late satellite for tomorrow's €10k High Roller, there were 107 entries with 37 rebuys and 105 add-ons. There are 11 seats available with 12th getting €7,465. Albert Daher, Martins Adeniya and Fernando Brito are among the 37 players left.
There were a total of 362 players with 55 spots being paid a minimum of €1,720 in the €1k Single Re-Entry event; the winner will take home €68,120. This event is scheduled to finish around 1.30am and the surviving players will come back tomorrow at midday to play to a winner.
