Malta Poker Festival Grand Event Winner Mirko Mostaccio
It was a cracker of a final hand between Mostaccio and Harnes. Both players had great hands, so it was understandable that all the money went in preflop. Harnes limped from the button, and Mostaccio made it 1.5 million. With 8.5 million behind, Harnes jammed and was called by Mostaccio. The cards were flipped over.
Thomas Harnes: KcJh
Mirko Mostaccio: AhQc
The flop produced a 9h 2c Ad, all but securing Mostaccios win. The dead turn sealed Harnes' fate and gave Mostaccio the title.
Well done to both players on a fantastic run at the Autumn Edition of the Malta Poker Festival!
