Day 1B of the IPT Main Event has reached the halfway point and all the final numbers for the event are in.
By the close of registration today a massive 723 players had taken their seats (number to be confirmed), and added to yesterday, means the event total is 947 players. That’s down on the 1,285 the last IPT Malta attracted in March but, considering the amount of choice open to players in Europe right now, is an extremely encouraging number. The prize pool informational will be published on the blog just as soon as the information is released to us.

When David Lappin spoke to the blog earlier in the day, he partly explained how his stack got low:
“I flopped two pair, less than flopped better two pair; straight less than flush and trips less than trips. So, I’ve had a few car crashes! Luckily, being 250 bigs deep, I only lost around a quarter of my stack each time.”
