During the four days of the Battle of Malta tournament at Casino Portomaso, players and visitors had the opportunity, for the first time ever, to play against PokerSnowie on PokerTrainer.
7864 hands were played over the four days - who won?
We've reached the final 24 players at the Battle of Malta, but unfortunately Erol, the last member of team PokerSnowie fell down in 46th position for a €1700 paycheck.
Team PokerSnowie will be back for another live tournament soon; but in the meantime The PokerSnowie challenge goes on.
After 4.5 hours of play, the field is down to 100 players, which means one thing: we're in the money!
And of our 4 players, one is still holding the PokerSnowie flag.
Olivier with his short stack, was the first casualty after the first 30 minutes of play. Bojan followed shortly after.
Team PokerSnowie is down to 4 after the late elimination yesterday of Vladimir and Marko.
Ivan is leading the pack with 63500 chips. Erol follows with a slightly under average chip stack of 56700 and Bojan will need to get some early action to grow his 31400 stack.
It was always going to be a tough challenge and unfortunately history did not repeat itself – the youngest member of Team PokerSnowie, Zeljko, lost all his chips to be the first player of the team out today on day 1b of the battle of Malta.
Day1B started on a fast and furious rhythm here in Malta. 7 members of Team PokerSnowie took their seat today; amongst them Zeljko, very eager to try and repeat last year’s final table performance. Olivier, the co-founder and original creator of PokerSnowie is amongst them, in what is probably his biggest live tournament entry to date.

The battle is raging at the Battle of Malta event, but meanwhile another PokerSnowie team is quietly making its mark at the Mega Poker Series event at the Maestral resort and Casino on the Montenegrin coast.
Luka, Drasko, Bojan, Nikola and Nebojsa entered the €770, 77000 deep stack event on the 25th September and have all successfully progressed to day 2, which started today at 16:00 CET.
The Battle of Malta participants have been pitting their talents against PokerSnowie at our tournament stand, where we've made PokerTrainer available on a couple of iPads to dozens of eager challengers. Our Heads Up, best of 3 challenge has proved quite popular, with about 35 taking it up.
