Level 31: 150,000/300,000 (300,000)
The action slowed down quite a bit with many players taking a bit more time than they were before. That combined with no real action led to a temporarily lull in the action which is common at most deepstacked final tables.
2023 Malta Poker Festival Spring Edition Grand Event fifth-place winner Kjetil Hanstvedt regained the lead in a small three-way pot. Georgios Zachmanidis min-raised the button and was called by Hanstvedt from the small blind and Arthur Navellou from the big blind.
Two players checked the 2♥2♦9♠ flop. Zachmanidis bet 600,000 and both his opponents called. Both the 8♦ turn and Q♣ river were checked down.
Hanstvedt turned over the A♣9♥. Navellou flashed the 9♦ but mucked the rest of his hand. Zachmanidis mucked as well and Hanstvedt was back with a small chip lead over Navellou.
Kjetil Hanstvedt – 21 million
Arthur Navellou – 20 million
Georgios Zachmanidis – 10 million
