Win your way to Battle of Malta 2022 on PokerStars


The Battle of Malta has joined forces with PokerStars, the world’s biggest real money online poker site, to run online qualifiers for the forthcoming festival later this month. The satellites on PokerStars will give players on the .com site as well as players in France, Italy and Spain, the chance to win their way into the €500,000 guarantee Battle of Malta Main Event with qualifiers offering guaranteed seats or  €800 prize packages.

Feeder satellites on PokerStars start from as little as €3.30 with the main qualifiers running four times a week (on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays); eight seats have been generated so far. The qualifiers cost €50 to enter on .fr, .es and .it and €55 on .com with a guaranteed seat for every €555 in the prize pool.

A PokerStars spokesperson said: “Battle of Malta went live on .IT & .com last week with the first qualifiers taking place on March 27. Both of them performed really well and .FR is now live as well.”

The €555 buy-in Battle of Malta Main Event starts April 21 with unlimited re-entries and a total of five starting flights. Each Day 1 will give players a 25,000 starting stack and 40-minute levels (or 20 minutes for the final Day 1e turbo). Each Day 1 will play down to 15% of the field with all survivors making the money.

Battle of Malta runs from April 20 to 26 and is being held at the InterContinental Conference Centre in St Julian’s, one of the island’s top tourist resorts. There are 25 tournaments in total. In addition to the flagship €500,000 guarantee Main Event, the schedule includes numerous other tournaments.
