The €110 Poker League of Nations-sponsored Ladies Event at this year’s Battle of Malta was a grand success this year with 104 entries.
The winner, Madara Sviska, earned €2,533, a bomber handmade Mdina Glass trophy and a Tiffany’s bracelet.
Needless to say she was pretty chuffed about it.
Maybe even more chuffed about it was her boyfriend, Janis Saulitis.
Saulitis says he was playing the Main Event at the time but had more interest in Madara’s final table run, which ultimately ended in triumph.
Even better? She had all of her own action despite his offer to stake her!
Well played, Madara. Check out the two of them telling Laura all about it:
