Both Day 1 flights are done at the PokerListings Battle of Malta with event host Kara Scott advancing to Day 2 of the contest.
With 42,800 chips, Scott will join the likes of Dan “Jungleman” Cates and Gaelle Baumann tomorrow, both of whom survived Day 1a, to begin the playdown to the final table.
“I’m having a lot of fun and I’m really glad I didn’t bust because I get to keep playing poker tomorrow,” said Kara Scott.
“The people at my table are a lot of fun and we’ve had a ton of interesting hands and conversation today so I’m really looking forward to trying to make the final table tomorrow,” she added.
Leading the pack heading into tomorrow’s playdown is Christian Bergstrom, a paramedic from Stockholm who bagged 234,500 before all was said and done on Day 1b. That’s roughly 100k more than the chip leader from Day 1a.
