It’s always nice to see familiar faces from the tour returning and there are definitely a smattering of those frequenting the tournament arena.
Two players fresh from success in Vienna are looking to have back-to-back successes here in Malta. First there is Richard Clarke, who has built up a good reservoir of experience on the European poker circuit and managed a cash at MPNPT Vienna.
Another Vienna casher is Russian player Artur Yarovoy, who came within a whisker of scooping the title there, finishing 5th for € 13,960.
Meanwhile, back from yesterday, taking advantage of the opportunity to have a second bite of the cherry is Tanel Every, whose first bid for glory foundered but he’s back to let his true colours shine through today.
Good luck all!
