Battle of Malta Near, Boot Camp No-Go


The 2013 PokerListings Battle of Malta is nearly here but the strategy boot camp that was supposed to precede the event has been cancelled.

The camp, which was planned for Sept. 23-25, generated interest but not enough to justify the entire seminar and time commitment of pros Dan “jungleman12” Cates, Johannes Strassmann, Max Altergott and Ashton Griffin.

Despite cancelling this year’s boot camp, there’s a good chance an even better version debuts next year at the 2014 Battle of Malta.

Battle of Malta Registration Strong, 500+ Expected

Cancelling the boot camp doesn’t affect this year’s Battle of Malta tournament with attendance looking very good in the early stages of registration.

Over 500 players are expected for the €550 buy-in tournament which offers a €200,000 guarantee -- an upgrade over last year’s €150,000 guarantee.

This year’s Battle of Malta takes place next week from Sept 26-29 with numerous pros like the aforementioned Cates and Griffin set to play as well as Andreas Hoivold, Luca Moschitta, Sofia Lövgren and many others. 

Registration is still open and full packages available on the Battle of Malta webpage.
