From the 15th – 22nd October 2019, 888poker returns to The Battle of Malta at the Intercontinental Hotel, St. Julian’s, Malta. This island country boasts fantastic coastal scenery with amazing views from the cliff nestled high above the Mediterranean Sea.

The Battle of Malta is Europe's biggest poker tournament and stands out as one of the best mid-stakes tournament series.

The Main Event buy-in comes in at a very affordable €555!

Lots to Do Away from the Felt

The island of Malta is located on the Mediterranean Sea and experiences very mild weather – even in October. So, there’s always plenty to see and do away from the poker felt.

As well as the breath-taking views from Dingli Cliffs, there’s the beautiful capital city of Valletta. If history is your thing, then check out the medieval town of Mdina and the prehistoric Haga Qim Temples that date back between 3600 B.C. and 3200 B.C.

For those looking for a great night out on the town, the lively city of St. Julian’s offers up plenty of clubs, restaurants and cocktail bars.
