The final two players are extremely deep. As such, they've opted to take a moment to talk numbers. Cards should be back in the air shortly.

Hand #31: With the {q-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, Alen Bilic raised from the small blind and won the pot.

Hand #32: Jaroslaw Sikora limped from the small blind with the {a-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and Niall Farrell exercised his option from the big with a raise to 240,000 with the {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}. Sikora immediately moved all in for 1.585 million, and Farrell snap-called.

Sikora had major kicker issues, and the {8-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop didn't do anything for him. The {4-Spades} turn was a blank, and the {8-Spades} river wound up being the last card Sikora would see in the EPT12 Malta Main Event.

Hand #30: Niall Farrell made it 175,000 from the button with {9-Spades}{5-Clubs} and action was on the shorty in the small blind. Giulio Spampinato found {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and shoved for 675,000. Alen Bilic in the big blind woke up with {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and called rather quickly. Farrell laughed and instantly folded his hand.

Giulio Spampinato, surrounded by his friends and family, wished for an ace, but it wouldn't come. The board came {5-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{8-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Spampinato was out in 4th place. His biggest score to date was winning the Big 55 online for $17,000, he improved on that here by quite a large margin, picking up €203,640.

The remaining 3 players are now guaranteed €265,840.

The PokerStars Blog took a look at the path the final six took to reach the EPT Malta Final Table, check it out here.

Hand #27: Farrell looked down at the {a-Spades}{a-Hearts} under the gun and raised to 130,000. Rainer Kempe then picked up the {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} in the cutoff and three-bet to 300,000. Action folded back to Farrell and he paused for a few beats before moving all in. Not surprisingly, Kempe snap-called off.

Kempe, who became just the eighth player to make back-to-back EPT Main Event final tables (he finished fifth in the EPT12 Barcelona for €320,400), was in desperate need of a queen, but it never came as the board ran out {5-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Clubs}{6-Clubs}.

With that, Kempe finished fifth in back-to-back EPT Main Events, this time for €161,340.

Hand #20-26: Bilic Wins Three in a Row

Webjoker • Ниво 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #20: Alen Bilic, with just the {A-Diamonds} displaying, made it 125,000 to go under the gun and he picked up the blinds and antes.

Hand #21: Alen Bilic received a walk in the big blind with {Q-Hearts}{7-Spades} so more blinds and antes for the man from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Hand #22: Action folded to Bilic in the small blind and he raised to 155,000 with {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. Jaroslaw Sikora called from the big blind with {A-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. The flop came {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} pairing no one. Bilic made a continuation bet of 175,000 and Sikora called. The {2-Hearts} on the turn was a blank and Bilic and Sikora both checked. The {Q-Hearts} completed the board and Bilic fired 350,000 into the 710,000 pot. Sikora folded rather quickly, the bluff worked for Bilic who moved over the 8 million mark with that pot.

Hand #23: Farrell received a walk with {J-Hearts}{9-Clubs} in the big blind. "My button is broke[n]" Sikora said with a smile.

Hand #24: {Q-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for Niall Farrell in the small blind and he raised to 180,000. Rainer Kempe folded {J-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} from the big blind.

Hand#25: Niall Farrell raised to 125,000 from the button with {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts} and took down the blinds.

Hand #26: Jaroslaw Sikora raised to 125,000 under the gun with the {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} and Alen Bilic defended from the big blind with the {10-Clubs}{7-Spades} to see a flop of {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}, which both players checked. When the {2-Diamonds} appeared on the turn, Bilic bet 155,000 and Sikora released.
