Event host Laura Cornelius is returning to her role as the “face” of the Battle of Malta for next month’s tournament. The former PokerNews presenter will play a leading role at the festival – introducing the action in the Eden Arena each day as well interviewing players, chatting to event winners, and reporting on all the fun and excitement at Battle of Malta’s tenth anniversary celebrations.
This year’s Battle of Malta is taking place from October 4 to October 12 at the InterContinental Conference Centre in St Julian’s. In addition to the flagship €1 million guaranteed Main Event, Battle of Malta will also include dozens of other tournaments ranging from €65 buy-in turbo satellites right up to the €1,100 High Roller.
Cornelius, who started her career with PokerNews back in 2011, has worked at tournaments all over the world and presented dozens of poker shows including the Unibet Open, Irish Open, the European Poker Tour and the Global Poker League.
Cornelius will be in familiar territory at the Battle of Malta as she used to live on the island and still has tons of friends here. She said: “It’s always such fun hosting the Battle of Malta – the festival has an unbeatable atmosphere and I love catching up with players and former colleagues. I’m really looking forward to next month’s festival and thrilled to be returning once again as the event host and presenter.”
