Battle of Malta Starts Today – Follow The Action

It's November 6th and that means that it is time for the biggest annual tournament hosted in Malta to begin. The Battle of Malta will have its very first playing day today, with tons of players having pre-registered, qualified online and live as well as people just showing up to register for the tournament today. Pokerlistings, who is hosting the tournament, hopes and believes that today will be sold out, having a total of 750 entries.


But how do you follow the action if you're not in Malta and can't just pop by the Portomaso Casino to rail your friends or the many celebrities and pro poker players participating? It's quite simple actually, as Pokerlistings and their renowned media team will be covering the event in all possible ways imaginable.


Pokerlistings have send a team of experienced live reporters to the tournament, who will blog live all days from the tournaments and post pictures, smaller interviews, notable and big hands, chip counts and follow all the pro's and celebrities up close. They start as soon as the tournament starts and they don't go home until the players do. You can follow the Pokerlistings Live Reporting right here. 


But that's not all, because Pokerlistings either go big or go home. They have brought their amazing video team once again for the Battle of Malta, who will once again create funny, action-packed and thrilling video's from the tournament series and the parties hosted by Pokerlistings. You can see all video's from the Battle of Malta 2014 by Pokerlistings here.

Shortly put, you'll find all the news, updates and video clips that you could possibly want and need.
