Cake Poker's Battle of Malta Packages
By RTR Dennis
It's a dream of poker players everywhere to compete in live tournaments where multi-million dollar prize pools are up for grabs. Unfortunately it’s hard for small and mid-stakes players to do this because big events inevitably mean big buy-ins. And even if you just want to play for prize packages online, this can also get pricey for the larger land-based tournaments.
So if you’re looking for a more realistic live poker tournament opportunity, you should consider the Battle of Malta event. This tourney will be held at the Protomaso Casino in St. Julian, Malta from November 22nd-25th, 2012, and a €150,000 Main Event prize pool is ready to the taking.
As for how you can make it to Battle of Malta, Cake Poker are currently running satellites for this event. The cheapest satellites start at just $2, and the qualifiers cost $20 + $2 with re-buys and add-ons available. This is actually really cheap for a qualifier, especially given that each one gives out a $2,500 Battle of Malta prize package. Below is a quick look at what the prize packages cover...
- €500 + €50 Main Event buy-in
- Four-night stay at the Hilton Malta
- $700 cash for spending/travel purposes
- Daily breakfast and dinner buffet
- VIP cocktail party at the vibrant Club Twenty Two
The first Battle of Malta qualifier happens on July 22nd, 2012 at 5pm GMT, and you can expect to see more qualifiers throughout the summer. One more point worth making about the prize package deals is that they’ll give you an opportunity to hang out on the beautiful coast of Malta – where incredible beach scenery and nightlife awaits!
