Just as the return of the MPN Poker Tour to Vienna (see report) is a testament to the Austrian capital’s standing as a global poker venue, selecting Malta as the second host of 2017 is indicative of how popular the tiny Mediterranean island proved the last time the MPNPT enjoyed the hospitality of this popular tourist resort.
Taking place at Casino Malta in the picturesque St George’s Bay, 27-30 April, the festival will boast a Main Event with a guaranteed prize pool of €150,000 as well as other interesting events for players to stick their teeth into. One such is the MPNPT Casino Malta Poker Cup, for which the €150 buy-in is included in the €1,500 package that can be won at 32Red for pennies!
As always, the qualification process is very player-friendly. Of course, it’s possible to simply buy a package or the €550 Main Event buy-in directly via 32Red, but it’s a great feeling to sit down at a big money tournament knowing that you earned your place as part of a poker holiday for a mere 25 cents…
In addition to the conventional qualification process that features regular qualifiers for packages and seats, with cheap ‘feeder’ tournaments every day, players can also win the whole package by hitting a royal flush in 32Red’s exclusive €3 buy-in Flush Royale tournament, which runs every night, and has a €500 guaranteed prize pool.
The Package, valued at €1,500, consists of the following:
Entry into the €550 Main Event (€150,000 Guaranteed)
Entry into the €150 MPNPT Casino Malta Poker Cup
4 nights, including breakfast, at the Be Hotel (for you and a guest)
€400 for travel/expenses
*You may transfer your side event ticket to a guest if you wish. If you do not transfer your side event ticket but are unable to play because you’re still playing the main event, we’ll refund the buy-in/s to your MPN account. Otherwise, the side event entry is not refundable or exchangeable.
