The Battle of Malta is mainly a tournament for people who have regular jobs and play poker because they love it, not because it’s their job.
Some players, however, are good enough at poker so that they move from the first party to the second – or they go at least halfway.
One of these is French film director Fabrice Soulier, who’s not only been travelling around the world playing in high buy-in events, but has also been a regular at the BOM.
This is no going to change this year, as Soulier has registered tonight to play tomorrow. Be smart like Soulier, people, it’ll save you the trouble of waiting in line!
