2017 BoM Bigger, Better Than Ever
If you haven’t checked out the 2017 Battle of Malta schedule yet, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.
Nine events will run over the 6-day festival with buy-ins from €100 to €1,320 for the Grandmaster High Roller.
Included in that calendar is our first-ever Ladies Event and super fun PLO Knight’s Crusade, NL Win the Cross and PLAY2CARE Charity Pineapple tournaments.
If it’s value you’re looking for €650,000 is guaranteed between the BoM Main Event, Siege of Malta Second Chance and Grandmaster High Roller but if last year’s turnout is a benchmark expect that to be closer to €1,200,000 or more.
New host Gaelle Garcia Diaz, 4 player parties and a cards-up live stream of the main event final table on Nov. 7 are also on tap to boost the atmosphere of what’s already known as one of the friendliest tournaments in Europe.
