It's day three of the Festival in Malta, and the tournaments are in full swing. There has been tons of action, as well as a few big winners so far in the first few days, so if you haven't yet, get your ass down to Portomaso Casino and get involved.
There have been a few winners at the Festival so far, the biggest winners both bagging over €5,000 for their first-place wins. Totti Lind beat Erik Risberg heads-up to claim the W in the Sviten Special taking home €5,200.
