Prepare for Battle!'s Battle of Malta is back

Friday, 9 August 2013

€200k GTD.

Pack your espadrilles and sun cream and prepare to do battle this September, as our friends's €200,000-guaranteed Battle of Malta returns to the beautiful Mediterranean island.

This promises to be more than just a tournament – it’s the ultimate poker holiday, set amid the splendid hotels and harbour-side restaurants of one of Europe’s most luxurious tourist destinations. There will be parties and side events galore, and all we can say is that we really hope they’re sending journalists out there – specifically Bluff Europe journalists.


Last year’s tournament, which had 349 runners, exceeding the guarantee of €150,000, was won by Italian Nicodemo Piccolo who took home €35,000.


Once again hosted by Kara Scott, the Second Annual Battle of Malta will take place from September 26th to 29th at the Portomaso Casino, this time with an even higher guaranteed prize pool. With a buy-in of only €550, the event is all about offering players a world class poker tournament experience and VIP hosting in a stunning setting, at a fraction of the price. And it doesn’t stop there – among the side events on offer is a €10,000 Guaranteed “Second Chance” event.


Some big names already signed up are Daniel “Jungleman12” Cates, Johannes Strassman, Andreas Hoivold and Max Altergott – and with a spot of luck you could be joining them. Battle of Malta online qualifiers are running now at 888Poker and PartyPoker, with 888 offering a qualifier every other week from now until September 7th. These $30+$3 qualifiers are free for first time depositors at 888poker, using the promo code “PLBOM”, or to existing players who deposit at least $20 using the promo code “BOM888”. The €1,400 packages include flights and transfers, four nights accommodation in the five-star Corinthia Hotel, a buy-in to the main event, plus access to exclusive side events and VIP parties.

If you fail to qualify, you can purchase a complete package for €1,400 at, or, if you want to make your own way there, the main event seat is €550.

Go on, it’s been a long, hard year. We think you deserve the poker holiday of a lifetime.
