Published on 7 November 2016 by Pokerlistings 1062
How many times have you joked with a friend on the way to a poker tournament about what it would be like to end up heads-up for the title? That dream came amazingly close to reality for two Swedish poker buddies who have been coming to the Battle of Malta together for the last three years. Robert Berglund ran through 1,813 players to become the 2016 BOM champion and his best friend Rasmus Eriksson was just two spots behind him in third. Finishing in second was Ireland's John Finnighan and between the three they walked away with €337,000. Berglund took the biggest prize in Battle of Malta history, pocketing €160,000, and a one-of-a-kind BOM trophy. Check out the video to see how the final table played out and check back tomorrow for a full recap of the 2016 Battle of Malta.
