The tournament in Malta has the prize of $ 1 million and probably refers to the game with the biggest prize so far. The one that took place in England is different and did not compare with the other from Malta. I also see a good poker player here in 5th place and congratulations for the players of the final table.

Congratulations to the winner and I hope that there is much more with this luck, if by those coincidences they could give me some of that luck I would not complain hahaha because the truth is I am not the only one but almost reaching the paid positions or sometimes with a good hand they end up winning me sometimes with less than 5% and that's why I want to kick everything haha Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

Feels good that it was a fellow Swede who won but I would have needed that money more then he does I think! All joking aside tho, it's always a nice felling to turn your buy-in into an amount 100 times bigger. Rarely happens for anyone but I guess that's the reason there are only a few real pros out there.

If you still opened the thread, i tell you again with other words that you have no idea what you're talking about. It's the biggest prize for Malta, not for United Kingdom. It doesn't matter if these tournaments are part of a series. Here it refers to something and you didn't understand.

Relatively low buy in for the money won for the first place and not only Smile
A good return for that 3.3k USD.
And he used credits that he already have, so practically his entrance was zero.
That is an even better return Smile. No info on how many players were in.

When you win $ 100 with a single dollar not great performance but when you win $ 330K with 1% buy-in you can say that is a remarkable performance. The amount of money is very large and the value matters. In the future i think the prize for 1st will increase.

How come that the final hands on these namebrand live tournies are always dissapointing to the degree that you would think any semi-competent player would drop these cards even in a heads-up game let alone playing for the 1st place?

The final hand in many games at heads up is ugly, because most of the time, the fatigue is very high. Sometimes because of the large stack difference. I won 1st place in a few small tournaments but also in freeroll games with over 1000 players and i know. Fatigue is sometimes great and it doesn't matter how you play.
