Grosvenor Poker Ambassador Andy Hills has had a stunning year on the tournament circuit, but this week he’s had, “Probably the best run in any live comp I’ve ever played.” He’s won several big tournaments in 2018, but notes that they were “not even close” in comparison to the massive 3,816-strong field in Malta. This is his second MPNPT final table appearance after finishing ninth in Bratislava, and he is looking forward to improving on that result today, as well as adding a second Malta flag to his online trophy cabinet. “I think I have the two most polarised Malta flags of anyone on the Hendon Mob,” he grinned, pointing to his last Malta cash – a mere €420. “I’ve bypassed the four-figure cash and gone straight for five figures.” Then,
after a pause: “Well, hopefully.” A former computer programmer specialising in artificial intelligence (not to mention an occasional techno DJ!), Hills has been playing poker professionally for around 10 years now, and with the second-biggest stack going into the final table, his eyes will be set firmly on the trophy. He’s being supported at the rail today by his girlfriend Georgi.
