Battle Of Malta 2018 - €1,000,000 GTD - October 25-30 - Buy-in €550



Battle of Malta 2018 with €1,000,000 GUARANTEED Prize Pool!

Europe’s best low buy-in live poker tournament is back and it’s bigger and better than ever before.

The Battle of Malta – awarded “Best Low Buy-in Tournament in Europe” in 2015 – will return in 2018 for its seventh edition.

What’s New in 2018?

More Money! – For the first time the Battle of Malta main event will have a €1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool of! That’s twice the prize pool it used to have!

New Ownership – PokerListings has sold the Battle of Malta to the Eden Leisure Group (ELG).

The ELG is the owner of the new Casino Malta, the Hotel InterContinental (Malta’s largest 5-star hotel), the Holiday Inn Express and the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre.

With its 3000m2 conference area formerly known as the Bay Arena, the Battle of Malta will now have room to grow even further.

New Dates – The Battle of Malta will take place October 25-30. Despite the double in guarantee the buy-in remains at €550 but for the first time unlimited re-entries will be available, which will result in an even bigger prize pool.

New Location – The next Battle of Malta will take place in the middle of Malta’s entertainment centre in St. Julian’s.

The InterContinental Conference Centre features a main area with enough room for over 140 tables, giving it a potential player field of more than 1,000 players every day!

Elevating BoM to the Next Level

Casino Malta owner Kevin De Cesare said, “Being the owner of the hotel, casino and event organization puts us in a unique position to be able to elevate this tournament to the next level.

“Our two hotels provide the largest number of rooms situated around a Casino in Malta, our Arena can easily take some 140 poker tables all on one level and our Casino is significantly larger than any other casinos in Malta.”

Moving the event to new and larger premises will ensure that the BOM can continue to grow in the years to come and establish Malta as the hottest poker location in Europe for small and mid-stakes players.

PokerListings will accompany the new Battle of Malta and provide you with news about the schedule and additional events as soon as possible.

About the Battle of Malta

The inaugural Battle of Malta took place in 2012 had a single main event with a guarantee of €150,000. It attracted 347 players.

Over the years, the main event has grown into the largest standalone tournament in Europe with a buy-in of under $2,000.

In 2017 the winner took home €50,000 more than the original guarantee. The guarantee had been raised up to €500,000 and will reach €1,000,000 for the first time in 2018.

While there was just one side event in 2012 (the Siege of Malta Second Chance) there were nine events in 2017 including a Ladies event, a High Roller event, a PLO event and several Hold’em tournaments.

The Battle of Malta also features daily parties, free casino buffets for the players and, most of all, the chance to escape the early days of winter in Europe and spend them on a sunny island in the Mediterranean while simultaneously having the chance to win life-changing money playing cards.

FB Press Release by Battle of Malta by PokerListings (27-07-18)

Battle of Malta set for record numbers

This year’s Battle of Malta in October looks set to break all records thanks to a hugely successful pan-Europe promotional road trip by Casino Malta organisers Telly Bartolo and Diane Fenech.

An enthusiastic response at casinos right across Europe – coupled with huge fields for MPN’s weekly online satellites – means nearly 600 hotel rooms have already been booked for the event – and there’s still three months to go.

Bartolo, who is Special Events Coordinator for Casino Malta, said: “Everywhere we’ve been there has been a huge buzz about this year’s Battle of Malta. It’s been incredible. The response has just been so great and I can already tell we are going to absolutely smash it this year.”

So far, there have been live satellites at tournaments in Sicily, Cantina and Milan as well as the recent MPN Poker Tour event in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria. There has also been a lot of interest and support from European media.

Bartolo and Fenech aren’t done with their road trip however; this weekend they’re off to the European Poker Series at Casino Gran Madrid Torrelodones where they’ll be promoting the event to players from all over Spain.

Bartolo added: “This year’s Battle of Malta Main Event has a guaranteed prize pool of €1,000,0000 – double previous years – so that obviously has a lot of appeal. Also players can rebuy as often as they like, and they’ll have the option to surrender their stack at the end of either Day 1a or Day 1b, and rebuy for the following day.”

The €550 buy-in Battle of Malta Main Event has three start flights in total with Day 1a taking place on Thursday, October 25. The final Day 1c is on Saturday, October 27. All Day 1s have 40 minute blind levels and will play down to 15% of the field – with all survivors making the money.

In addition to the live satellites across Europe and weekly satellites on MPN, which have three packages guaranteed, there will also be several super satellites held live at the tournament venue, the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre, with the first one taking place on Wednesday, October 24.

The Battle of Malta, which was founded by PokerListings in 2012, has grown every year and last year broke its own records with a staggering 2,074 entries, making it the largest poker tournament ever held in Malta.
