Finnish Invasion: Puma Swede, The Dudesons Playing Battle of Malta


The island of Malta has repelled many invasions but this September marks the first time they’ll have to deal with a certain group of hard-partying Finns.

Stunt group The Dudesons and adult film star Puma Swede will all be heading to the beautiful Mediterranean island on Sept. 26.

The reason for their surprise visit? The €200k guaranteed PokerListings Battle of Malta tournament.

The Dudesons Take Malta

Taking place at the first-class Portomaso casino in St. Julian's, the Battle of Malta will run from Sept. 26-29, 2013, with some of the biggest poker names in the poker world set to attend.

Puma Swede should fit right into the VIP poker experience as she’s used to living the fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle.

The award-winning Swede - who despite the name was born and raised in Finland -- recently released her first book My Life as a Pornstar in English to rave reviews and will enter the poker tournament on a major high note.

Meanwhile The Dudesons, which includes Jukka Hilden, Jarno "Jarppi" Leppälä, Hannu-Pekka "HP" Parviainen and Jarno Laasala, have starred in numerous reality shows in Europe and the United States.

The group often battled Bam Margera’s Jackass crew in various challenges and most recently starred in The Dudesons in America.

Last year Italian poker amateur Nicodemo Piccolo outlasted 349 players to win $44,796 at the inaugural Battle of Malta.
