A stunning iconic sterling silver bracelet from luxury jewellers Tiffany & Co. will be awarded to the winner of this year’s Battle of Malta Ladies Event. The beautiful prize is part of the champion’s package by Poker League of Nations who are sponsoring the €110 buy-in tournament.
Poker League of Nations (PLON) is the world’s largest and most internationally represented women’s poker organization. PLON was founded in 2017 with the aim of proactively creating and promoting more opportunities for ladies to enter open fields by hosting poker events worldwide, as well as lobbying event organisers to host ladies events and ladies-only satellites into main events and other open tournaments.
Poker League of Nations is an international cooperative whose staking initiatives are actively sending women into higher buy-in open fields worldwide.
The Battle of Malta Ladies Event kicks off at 5pm on Saturday, October 27. Players will get a 20,000 starting stack and have unlimited re-entries through to the end of late registration. Last year’s Ladies Event winner – Soile Lerviks of Finland – took home a cash prize of €2,100 after she outlasted a field of 74 entries that created a €6,548 total prize pool.
PLON co-founders Maureen Bloechlinger and Lena Evans (pictured here with PLON Spain Ambassador Ana Marquez) are travelling to Malta from Switzerland and the United States respectively to play both the Ladies Event and Main Event – alongside PLON Malta Ambassador Jackie Cachia, PLON Italy Ambassador Giada Fang and 888 Ambassador and PLON Spain Ambassador Ana Marquez.
On Sunday, October 28, the ladies are invited to attend the Battle of Malta Players Party to celebrate the newly-crowned ladies’ champion and socialize with fellow players.
For ladies arriving at the kickoff of the festival, PLON will run a Last Longer for the €1 million guaranteed Battle of Malta Main Event, which starts with Day 1a on October 25th. In order to qualify for the Last Longer, ladies must wear the PLON patch and be the last woman standing on Day 2 (or at the final table). The Last Woman Standing will win the cash prize, a beautiful Battle of Malta backpack and other PLON swag.
