Norway's Felix Stephensen Targets 2015 Battle of Malta Trophy

Published on 4 November 2015 by Pokerlistings 178

Last year Felix Stephensen finished second in the year's biggest poker tournament, the World Series of Poker Main Event. Right now he's competing in the 2015 Battle of Malta and he says he's got his eye on the trophy, literally. With a relatively small €550 buy-in, BOM is a lot more affordable than the WSOP Main Event, and even though first place won't be getting seven figures, they will be taking home a massive prize, and an amazing miniature knight trophy. Stephensen was here for EPT Malta last week and decided to stick around in hopes of taking that puny paladin home with him. Stephensen tells us why he thinks Malta is an amazing destination for vacation and poker and goes on to share an interesting story about how a $1,000 football bet where he got 60 to 1 ended up sending him to the 2014 WSOP Main Event where he won $5 million. Check out the video and stay tuned for tons more from the 2015 Battle of Malta.
