Battle of Malta Event Director Diane Fenech said: “Staying at the Intercontinental is a really great experience; there’s an amazing atmosphere during the Battle of Malta and nothing beats the luxury of being able to get to the tournament area from your bedroom in just a few minutes! The Intercontinental is a fabulous hotel and located right in the heart of St Julian’s, close to numerous great bars, restaurants and clubs.
“Malta is a dream location for a poker tournament and October often has amazing weather which all helps make Battle of Malta a true must-attend tournament on any poker player’s calendar. We were staggered by the turn-out last year and looking forward to welcoming even bigger numbers for this year’s event.”
