The Battle of Malta 2022 Autumn Edition Main Event is still on the way, but we can already announce the winner of the OlyBet Last Longer. With Estonian Marko Keskel busting at the start of the day4, Toivo Rinne from Finland has secured this win and a Kings of Tallinn 2023 €1,100 Main Event ticket.
Thirty-four players from Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, and Finland at the start of the Battle of Malta €555 Main Event day2 signed for the OlyBet Last Longer. 11 of them advanced to day3. You can check the photos from the day3 action on the OlyBet Poker Facebook page.
After a long fight, only 45 players secured places on day4. Estonia’s Marko Keskel (1,545,000) and Finland’s Toivo Rinne (3,510,000) were the last two wearing OlyBet patches, so it was indirect heads-up for the €1,100 Kings of Tallinn ticket. It didn’t last long. After just 8 minutes of day4 action, Marko Keskel decided to go all-in after the opponent’s raise with KQs and got an answer from the pair of eights. Community cards brought no help, so Estonian exited in 44th place (€4,000), leaving the fin the last man standing.
Toivo Rinne may already start to pack for the Kings of Tallinn. Northern Europe’s biggest live poker festival will run from February 24th to March 5th, 2023.
