We predicted a monster tournament and we are pleased to say our expectations are being met with Day 1A’s field looking highly likely to eclipse 2017’s 320 runners.
There are a number of familiar faces populating this bumper field, one of whom is Albert Sapiano – a player with a reputation for aggressive play familiar to those who play on the UK poker scene. We’ll be watching developments on his table carefully as he has been known to make a rebuy or two in previous competitions – often in the process of accumulating gargantuan stacks. At present he looks slightly upset as a result of a tardy cup of tea failing to arrive.
Another player in the mix who will be familiar to many is Joe Grech. Joe has a Maltese background but has been playing poker for years around the UK and Europe and has acumulated well over a million dollars in this time. It will be interesting to see how these two stalwarts’ days pan out.
