The World Poker Tour Malta Main Event has reached its final table after the 26 players who started Day 3 were whittled down to just six. The man who will lead the final tablists into battle at 13:00 CET on Thursday is Jackson Genovesi.
Genovesi has lead this tournament from start to finish and it would be no surprise at all of the vocal Italian went all the way and won the €120,000 first place prize. Day 3 was a real roller coaster of a ride for Genovesi, his willingness to play pots and see flops out of position almost cost him dearly but whenever he entered a pot you could guarantee he was making his opponent's lives a misery.
Genovesi ended the night with 1,553,000 million chip and was just one of two players who broke through the one million chip barrier; the other being France's Yorande Kerignard and his 1,422,000 chips. Kerignard is a very talented poker player and from listening to the railbirds today and watching him play his cool, calm and collected style he will go into the final table as the overall favorite.
Joining Genovesi and Kerignard are Finland's Sampo Ryynanen, former WPT Venice champion Alessio Isaia, Croatia's Zeljko Krizan and the first woman to reach a WPT final table in what seems like an age, Hui Chen Kuo.
Play resumes at 13:00 CET and PokerNews will be there to bring you all of the action from the Casino at Portomaso. Make sure you join us as we crown our Malta champion.
