There was a delayed start to the PPC Malta €225 Win the Button with all the action of the two opening flights of the Main Event.

The event has just kicked off and it will be a high-octane affair with 15-minute blind levels. The tournament is unique as the button doesn’t move clockwise but heads to the player that won the previous hand. The tournament kicked off with 13 entries but this figure should increase significantly until late registration is closed.
