Luigi D’Alterio opened for a min-raise from early position with 10 8 before Oystein Brenden three-bet jammed for 1.5 million from the cutoff with A Q .

Matthew Micallef quickly called off his stack of slightly less from the small blind with A J and D’Alterio folded.

Micallef was the final local Maltese player in the Main Event. The title won't stay at home in Malta after ace-jack wasn’t able to push ahead of ace-queen on the 7 K 7 3 5 board to send Micallef to the rail in seventh place for €8,350.

Oystein Brenden - 3 million
Matthew Micallef - 0
