American ex-pat Sally Stephens came to Malta as the first stop on a bucket-list poker adventure and left with her biggest tournament score ever. Stephens played in the Battle of Malta Main Event but didn't cash. Then she decided to enter the €1,200 Grandmaster High Roller Event and ended up chopping the tournament heads-up for over €25,000. This is something Stephens has been looking forward to for a long time. She started playing poker when she saw Chris Moneymaker win the World Series in 2003. She's practiced online, studied books and television and tried to emulate what she sees as “young-gun poker strategy”. Stephens has lived in Costa Rica since 2012 and plans to visit stops on the European Poker Tour including Prague, and Australia for the Aussie Millions in January. She said her win at BOM will make it easier to play more events because she hates using her own money to buy into poker tournaments.
