Posted on 23 March 2015 by "T".

The first day of the first ever European Poker Tour Main Event in Malta has come to an end. Approximately 260 players turned up for Day 1A, and 153 remained after eight 75-minute levels of play in the Grand Masters Suite of the Portomaso Casino.

EPT winner Michael Tureniec became the first player ever to be eliminated from an EPT Main Event in Malta, and Greece's Evangelos Tsairis, who finished in 18 place at the 2015 EPT Deauville Main Event, bagged up the chip lead (18,3000) at the end of play. Here are a few other notables that made it through Day 1A:

Dominik Panka 66,700
Theo Jorgensen 52,900
Daniel Dvoress 49,200
Jack Salter 73,600
Jan Heitmann 75,600
Ruben Visser 44,600
Dimitar Danchev 40,200
Ole Schemion 36,200
Sam Greenwood 25,600
Martin Finger 20,200


The number of participants should increase significantly today when Day 1B kicks off around noon local time. According to pokerstars blog, Vanessa Selbst, Steve O'Dwyer, Jonathan Duhamel, Isaac Haxton, Jake Cody and George Danzer, among other big names, will enter the tournament today.

We will be back with another update tomorrow morning. Stay tuned!

The stars came out, including the likes of Liv Boeree, Marcin Horecki, Theo Jorgensen and Jan Heitmann of Team PokerStars Pro, plus the SportStar Fatima Moreira de Melo, and a host of other top names in the game.As is typical, some survived to fight another day, while plenty of others perished. Moreira de Melo caused some trouble, but hit the rail. Boeree was three-outered right and the death, and that ended her day.

This looks like this tournament is going to be huge and the names being touted for Day1b looks frightening, there are some top players being lined up and i look forward to see who comes out on top

Before this tournament started I had already seen lots of the well known players being very enthusiastic about going to Malta and it definitely looks like all the star players will be involved.
I notice Jack Salter doing well again,he seems to be on a good run at the moment.

Theo Jorgensen is very well classified and is, in my opinion, the one who can best win this event. Of course they all know a lot of the game and they're all used to the kind of pressure they're feeling in this moment, but i guess Theo Jorgensen is more prepared than the others due to his experience.

Really not bad what these guys are playing, but I am rather proud of my own "European Poker Tour" success. Yesterday I have win 50 cents in the German EPT live malta freeroll on Ppokerstars. It was only the minimum cash, but still better then just watching poker on TV.
