Truce! Antoan Katsarov is the 2014 Battle of Malta Champion!

By PokerListings.com

We asked for a battle, and we got a battle.

So much of a battle, in fact, our two finalists battled right into the 5 am hard stop the casino is required to impose.

At the decision of the Tournament Director, the two will split the remaining prize pool according to the chips at the time of the stop.

Because they are being required to stop, they can't make a further deal to play for any extra money or the trophy, so the tournament is offically over.

The chip leader as of the final hand? Bulgaria's Antoan Katsarov, who will take home €122,750 and the Battle of Malta trophy for 2014!

The runner-up is Malta's own Alan James Brincat, who will himself pocket €107,250.

Both players were quite happy with the decision, although there was some playful banter about who would get to take home the fantastic Battle of Malta trophy.

Congratulations to our two worthy combatants! Full recap to follow in our news section.

1. Antoan Katsarov, Bulgaria €122,750*
2. Alan James Brincat, Malta €107,250*
3. Pär Ebenhardt, Sweden €53,000
4. Oskar Szwed, Poland €42,500
5. Hugo Lemaire, France €32,000
6. Declan Connolly, Ireland €23,000
7. Pontus Dargren, Sweden €16,095
8. Johan Krans, Sweden €12,100
9. Wouter Beumers, Netherlands  €9,100
