While we are still waiting on a full player list (coming soon!), we can inform you that we’ve had 75 entries so far in this Day 1a. It is admittedly a somewhat bijou field thus far, but MPNPT tradition holds that Day 1b is always the busier of the two start days, plus with the blinds steadily increasing (Level 4, blinds 150/300 right now) we’ll soon see the delightful unlimited rebuy format start to work its magic.
Among the players who have made it to the tables today are MPNPT Malta finalist Edgaras Bucinskas, currently sharing a table with garrulous Irishman David Lappin, multi-aliased local religious icon Rauno Tahvonen and MPNPT fixture Angus Dunnington, and across the room we also have British wunderkind Andy Hills and enthusiastic Twitcher Espen Uhlen Jørstad.
We’ve already seen four players go all in and fail to come out again in one piece; there’s no word yet on whether the hapless all-out players have chosen to exercise their right to rebuy, but with registration open until the start of play on Day 2, there’s plenty of time to decide about that, perhaps over a drink or two at the lovely Viimsi Spa with the online qualifiers later tonight.
