2016 Battle of Malta kicks off today – Follow it on!

The Battle of Malta is Europe’s hottest low-buy-in tournament

In 2014 the Battle of Malta was voted low-buy-in Event of the Year at the European Poker Awards!

Last year unbelievable 1,803 entries created a massive prize pool of €874.940 and that for a buy-in of only €550!

There is no doubt, that the Battle of Malta is the hottest low-buy-in poker tournament in Europe!

Low Buy-In, Massive Prize Pool

The secret of its success is the combination of the low buy-in and massive guaranteed prize pool. Where else can you play for €550 buy-in for a guaranteed prize pool of €500,000?

Battle of Malta VIP Sponsorship

But the Battle of Malta is more, it is one of the friendliest and most fun poker tournaments on the circuit and gives players the chance to combine it with a holiday as it is still warm in Malta in the beginning of November.

New record and up to 2,000 players expected in the Main Event

Year after year the Battle of Malta has been boosting the record for the biggest poker tournament ever held in Malta.

This year the number of online and live satellites was bigger than ever before, that’s why organizers expect up to 2,000 players in the Main Event, which would mean the guaranteed prize pool would be doubled! For the first time a 1 Million Euro prize pool could be reached.

The Main Event kicks off today at 2 pm CET. It has three starting days and the tournament will last over 6 days with the final table starting Monday at 3 pm CET.

Live updates direct from the tournament area!

We will be also sponsoring players for the Main Event.
