The 2014 €500k-GTD Battle of Malta already got a significant boost to its prizepool. Now it’s getting a boost to its venue as well.
Outgrowing its previous space after a record-breaking 2013 this year’s Battle of Malta will move to the world-class Grand Master’s Suite at the Portomaso/Hilton casino complex.
The Grand Master’s Suite is one of the largest conference rooms in Malta with capacity for well over 1,000 players. It’s equipped with theater lighting, a viewing gallery, state-of-the-art sound system and a centerpiece stage.
The stage will host a feature table to showcase big-name pros and aspiring players climbing their way to the top of the chip counts. It's the first time the Battle of Malta will have a feature table.
€500k GTD, VIP Parties, The Amazing Maria Ho
The 2014 Battle of Malta has quickly become one of the best-value poker tournaments in Europe with a reasonable €550 buy-in but a massive €500,000 prize pool.
This year’s winner will likely walk away with over $100,000 USD in what will likely be the biggest tournament ever held in Malta.
The emphasis at BOM, though, is still about having fun and poker players will be treated to tons of VIP perks, a beautiful location in sunny Malta and a pro-tour-feel tournament all for €550.
The amazing and effervescent Maria Ho will also take over hosting duties this year. The former Amazing Race contestant and 2007 WSOP Last Woman Standing takes the reins from ESPN's Kara Scott, who'll be busy at the Nov. 9.
