Published on 6 November 2016 by Pokerlistings 500
Day 3 at the Battle of Malta is done and it saw a starting field of 72 hacked down to the final table of nine. Tomorrow over half a million euros are on the line for the top nine spots with a huge €160,000 first-place prize waiting for this year's champion. In today's highlight video we hear what this opportunity means to some of the final table players and learn more about the craziest story from this year's Battle of Malta. Rasmus Eriksson and Robert Berglund are two best friends from Sweden who have been coming to the Battle of Malta together for the last three years. They're sharing a hotel room and, amazingly, this year they both made the final table. Next we check in with Roland Boothby, the commentator of tomorrow's final-table live stream on Twitch. And finally we speak to Battle of Malta creator Ivonne Monteleagre about the work that went into another record-breaking year at BOM and what she sees in store for the event's future. Check out the video for the whole story and check back tomorrow to watch the final table play out live on Twitch.
