If you’d like to watch a real, live former November Niner play poker we can tell you 2016 WSOP Main Event final tablist Fernando Pons is plying his trade on today’s Battle of Malta live stream.
Take a watch over on our Facebook page right here.
As you watch him play (he’s in Seat 5 in the middle there) you can read this short interview we grabbed with him just after the last break.
BM: How has your life changed since the WSOP November Nine?
FP: Well, I can’t say a lot. I simply say that I am very happy since the WSOP November Nine and I play more confident than before. Now I am really involved 100% with poker and my life is always happy. What else?
BM: Why are you coming back to BOM?
FP: BOM is a well organized tournament that I really like because I always feel good here. I am happy to play here, the atmosphere is fantastic! This year the location looks amazing and I am trying to do my best.
BM: What do you like about it?
FP: I like as always the atmosphere, the organization and even the field. Of course I like the location, Malta is an amazing island.
BM: Anything you don’t like about Malta?
FP: The weather is always good and it is very similar to my island Mallorca. Of course Malta nightlife, clubs and people are the best part of this island and I can say at all that I don’t find any negative aspects. It is always a pleasure for me to come back to Malta when I can.
BM: Plans for the future?
FP: I want to play more and more. I don’t know exactly what will happen but I am sure about two things: Poker and Mallorca. Play poker is what I want to do in my life now.
Mallorca is my place where I belong and where I always come back after my travel. I am a big traveller, I go around the world for playing poker and to visit new places but when I am at home I am always happy. Wherever I go I always come back to Mallorca!
