5 days have passed since the last hand of the festival was dealt in Platinum Casino, Sunny Beach. We thought we would take the time to reflect on what happened during the festival, talk about our upcoming stops and most importantly, release that hand we’ve been telling you about all week which saw our Cash Game Festival Veteran, Kevin Malone, scoop to win himself his 2nd Feature table trophy and that €1500 Package to Bratislava.
Cash Game Festival gets another 2-time winner!
Kevin Malone enters the Cash Game Festival Hall of Fame as a 2-time trophy winner. 30 minutes from the end of play on Day 5 and “No Phone Malone” had a decision on his hands – walk away from the table breakeven for the day, or call off most of his stack in a 4-way pot that would most definitely secure him the package and make him a 2-time champion.
You can’t help but feel that the famous catchphrase of Cash Game Festival commentator Henry Kilbane “No gamble no future” was going through his mind as he flicked in the call. The rest as they say, is history. In case you didn’t get the chance to watch the hand on stream you can watch it by clicking this link.
In the build up to that insane hand, we had 5 days of activities for all of our qualifiers to truly make it a poker vacation. Yes, we are a Cash Game Festival, but at the same time we want players to enjoy their time away from the tables and to make friends off the felt. So, what’s a better way to create strong bonds than a football tournament on the beach?! With the World Cup still fresh in our minds we headed out to the beach for some beach sports, refreshments and a boat ride. We won’t mention any names, but let’s just say, not all our qualifiers were brave enough for the banana boat. You can check out all the festival highlights on our Facebook page
Cash Game Festival in Sunny Beach is over, but there are more stops!
The sad news is that Cash Game Festival Sunny Beach is over. Maybe that saying ‘good things always come to an end’ rings true. Or not! We have 2 confirmed stops in our pipeline, one of which is just around the corner. We’re heading to Bratislava from 19th-23rd of September for the 2nd time this year and if that wasn’t enough for you, in November we’re going back to our roots. Our hometown where Cash Game Festival originated from, Tallinn! You can register in advance if you would like to take part on one of our feature tables. Don’t worry if you’re camera shy, we have plenty of games running at all stakes for those just looking for a fun game. You can register your interest on our home page.
We would like to thank everyone who came to the festival, the staff at Platinum Hotel and Casino for doing an amazing job and to all of those that tuned in on our twitch.tv channel. Without the support of all of you, none of this would be possible. For now, we’re gonna love you and leave you and hopefully see you all in Bratislava!
