The #1 destination low buy-in poker festival is back for 2016!

Dates for the 2016 Battle of Malta have now been set from November 2-7 at the spectacular and newly refurbished Hilton Malta.

Three Day 1 flights are available (Nov. 2, 3, 4) with the final table playing out November 7.

All the special features that have made BOM the European Poker Award winner for Best Low Buy-in Tournament will return with new and intriguing twists in store.

In case you need a reminder, a few of the things that made the 2015 Battle of Malta so exceptional:

  • 1,804 entrants in the €550 BOM Main Event (up 25%)
  • €874k prize pool divvied up among 180 players
  • 3 (!) six-figure winners at the top of the payouts
  • Bigger and better side events (an 83-player High Roller!)
  • 3 blowout VIP parties
  • Amazing atmosphere in perfect, Mediterranean weather

We also had a spectacular guest list of poker pros and celebs including Humberto Brenes, Fatima Moreira de Melo, Anatoly Filatov, WSOP Main Event runner-up Felix Stephensen, Fabrice Soulier, Sofia Lovgren, Luca Moschitta, Andreas Hoivold, William Hung, Kim Herold, Claire Renaut and more.

Host Maria Ho again proved why she's the best in the business and the Hilton/Portomaso Casino staff and dealers all showed why Malta has become an A-list stop on the European poker circuit.

At its heart the Battle of Malta is THE poker destination holiday for the casual player and 2016 will deliver the same major tour feel at rec-player prices.

We can't wait to host you and your poker friends again. Watch this space for more details on satellites, packages and new experiences planned for 2016. A 2,000-player field and €1m prize pool aren't out of the question!
