Maria Ho: BOM 2016 broke records and brought players from all over the world to Malta for big prizes and a poker experience they'll never forget.
This year's Main Event got one thousand eight hundred and thirteen players, including poker pros, celebrities and amateur players from all over the world.
Over five action-packed days of poker the field was cut down as players fought for a spot in the money.
179 players got paid but everyone had their sights set on the final table.
Among the final nine were players from Sweden, Norway, Ireland, America, Spain and Italy all gunning for the 160,000 euro first-place prize.
The craziest story at this year's Battle of Malta was two best friends from Sweden who have been coming to the Battle of Malta together for the last three years.
Robert Berglund and Rasmus Eriksson bought one of our special discounted friend packages and both of them ended up making the final table.
When it got down to three-handed play both of them were still in.
Robert Berglund: It feels really, really good. I kind of felt bad when I knocked him out in third place but at least I took care of the chips. We're going to have a big party tonight I think. Or tomorrow. We'll see.
Maria Ho: The Main Event was massive this year but it wasn't the only thing going down at the Battle of Malta.
Four parties over four days and a huge schedule of side events guaranteed that even if you busted the main event you'd have plenty to keep you busy.
That's it for another record-setting PokerListings Battle of Malta. Join us next year when we'll be back, bigger and better than ever.
