Tone Damli at Battle of Malta for Pulse-Pounding Poker Adventure

Published on 6 November 2015 by Pokerlistings 186

Norwegian singer and TV star Tone Damli is playing poker at the Battle of Malta and she told PokerListings she loves the game because it gets her heart pumping. The 27-year-old performer has only been playing poker for a year but she's already got some experience under her belt before touching down here at the Battle of Malta. This summer Damli made it deep in the Colossus event at the World Series of Poker that drew over 22,000 players. Damli made the top five per cent of that event, recording her second live poker cash. Damli says she gets a similar rush when she's performing for a big crowd but that poker is more nerve-racking because she's much more comfortable behind the mic than behind a stack of chips. Nerves aside, the Norwegian says she loves poker and since she's hooked up with Betsson as a sponsor it's safe to say we'll be seeing more of her at the poker table.
