Former Dutch professional tennis player Raemon Sluiter made it into the money at the Battle of Malta and even though he ended up busting short of the final table, he said he had a blast at Europe's biggest stand-alone poker tournament. Sluiter said he's only made the money four or five times before so it was definitely a special experience for him. He also said he loves the big field and casual atmosphere the Battle of Malta has to offer. Sluiter is dating Team PokerStars SportsStar Fatima Moreira De Melo and said when they began seeing each other they used to play heads-up all the time. But seeing as they're both world-class athletes, the matches got too competitive and they had to stop. Now they work together to succeed at live poker tournaments around the world and get to check out awesome destinations like Malta along the way.
