Andrea Dato Flying Italian Flag in Malta
With over $627k in live tournament earnings, much of it won on regional tours around Italy, Andrea Dato is in the top 30 on the Italian all-time money list.
Andrea Dato has his sights set on the Battle of Malta title.
Dato has a long list of high five-figure scores highlighted by a third-place finish at the World Series of Poker in 2011 worth $138,044.
This November Dato will be bringing that experience to bear at the Battle of Malta.
"I can't wait to participate in the tournament,” Dato told PokerListings.com.
“I love the Portomaso Casino and playing poker in such a beautiful environment and I would be more than happy to leave Malta and go back home adding such a significant victory to my records,” he continued.
And while all four hosts will have the chance to win big money at the Battle of Malta, it’s not the only reason they’re happy about being on the Mediterranean in November.
“The weather in Malta is incredible,” said Kara Scott.
“I recently read that they tied for first place for best climate in the world! Spending some of cold November in the warm Mediterranean will be a real treat for all of the people who come out to play Battle of Malta.”
