Next week it's time for World Poker Tour to make a stop in Malta. The tournament will be played at Portomaso Casino and it's the first major poker tournament on the small mediterranean island. However it remains unclear if WPT Malta will attract many big names since WPT Borgata Poker Open in New Jersey, USA, is played at the same time.
The WPT Malta main event will be played as re-entry-tournament. This means that players that get knocked out during the first starting day can buy-in again Day 1b. The decision, which was taken a few days ago, has been welcomed by many players as they think it will give the prize pool a good boost.
WPT Malta kicks off on Tuesday next week. The buy-in for the main event is $3,000 and the final table will be played next Saturday.
