There is plenty of poker tournament action taking place at casinos around the world, so here is your chance to get caught up on the latest results, and upcoming events in the poker world. Later this week we’ll update you on even more tournament results, including the EPO, the WSOPC in Bossier City, and of course the World Series of Poker Europe tournament series.

WPT Malta

The WPT Malta Main Event was won by Yorane Keringard, who defeated the 168 player field to win his first major poker tournament. While the field size was relatively small (The tournament is competing with the WPT Borgata Poker Open, the English Poker Open, the WSOPC Bossier City, and the HPT Colorado tournaments, as well as the upcoming WSOPE) the field included some of the biggest names in poker including Tony G and Phil Hellmuth.
