Every year the Battle of Malta has gotten bigger and added more features.
This year the low buy-in, high value tournament is offering a final table live stream for the first time ever thanks to sponsors Betsafe, Betsson and NordicBet.
That’s right, you can actually watch in real-time as nine players attempt to parlay their stacks into a hefty €160,000 first-place prize and arguably the best trophy in poker.
Even second place will take home €110,000. The entire final table will be sharing €541,440, which is more than the guaranteed prize pool alone!
The stream will be completely live with almost no delay between the action and broadcast. The live stream is being produced by PrimeProductionsTeam and will feature the GPL's Roland Boothby as lead commentator.
Here’s a look at the stacks as we head into play:
1. John Finnighan (Ireland) — 10,840,000
2. Rasmus Eriksson (Sweden) — 8,795,000
3. Lawrence Brandt (USA) — 8,000,000
4. Flaviano Cammisuli (Italy) — 6,215,000
5. Gonzalo Fernandez (Spain) — 2,900,000
