The 2015 Battle of Malta is shaping up to be the must-play event of the year. We show you why…
1. €500,000 guarantee
Unless you’re a high-rolling superstar, you don’t often get to play poker for serious life-changing money. The 2015 Battle of Malta comes with a massive €500,000 guarantee, for a buy-in of just €550. Last year the guarantee was smashed and the prize pool ended up at €723,500. 170 players went home with at least double their buy-in and the first prize was €140,000 – a return on investment of over 25,000%! Not bad for a few days in the sun. Make sure you’ve got a chance of lifting the trophy this year.
2. Be a record breaker!
The very first Battle of Malta was held in 2012 when 349 runners turned up creating a prize pool of €169,265. In 2013, the BOM Main Event attracted 888 runners, making it the largest tournament held in Malta. Last year the numbers almost doubled when 1,447 turned up and helped BOM smash its own record. This year it’s expecting even more runners and possibly a seven-figure prize pool! This is your chance to get your name in the record books and play in the largest tournament in Malta’s history.
3. It’s more than poker
You might be playing for life-changing cash in the Main Event, with loads of one and two-day side events if you bust, but there’s a lot more to the Battle of Malta than just the poker. If you were there last year you’ll know the parties are as big as the poker at BOM and this year is set to be no different. You can mingle with the stars at the infamous VIP party, enjoy the cocktail party at the five-star Hilton and treat yourself to table service for All-In Friday at Twenty- Two, Malta’s most exclusive nightclub.
4. Enjoy the winter sun
When you’re not playing poker it’s time to enjoy your holiday. The weather in Malta is still hot enough in November to get some serious sun at some of the best beaches in Europe. The sandy beach at St George’s Bay is slap-bang in the party capital of Malta and it was the first to get a blue flag in Malta. If you want to beach it and stay close enough to the shops and bars, this is the place to go. The rocky coast of Sliema offers a great alternative if you want to snorkel in the clear blue sea.
5. Satellite and save
