The biggest Battle of Malta Prize ever was won by a Lucky Farm Manager from Israel
Battle of Malta is considered to be the Global Poker Event of the year. It is organized by PokerListing. The popular tournament takes place "in the Heart of the Mediterranean".

The competition has recently finished its 6th season. More than 2000 participants were involved in this capital event.
Take a few minutes to read this exciting big winner story from the 2017 Battle of Malta event.
Surprising Big Win
Nadav Lipszyc is the name of one of the most surprising participants in the event of 2017. He grabbed the exclusive title and won the Grand Battle of Malta prize. The fact that he arrived for the tournament with very little money in his pocket (he even did not have enough money to buy a simple breakfast before the big win) makes it really surprising.
With little money in the pocket, poor experience in this field and plenty of good luck, Lipszyc – a farm manager from Israel won the largest Battle of Malta prize ever!
Results from the final table
Four players from Israel were around the final table. Lipszyc was one of them. For the first time players from the same country go to the final table of Battle of Malta tournament. Lipszyc's win was really impressive – he took home the massive €200,000. To have an idea, in 2012, the first winner, Nicodemo Piccolo took home only €35,000. I don’t dare to think what next year’s Battle of Malta Grand Prize will be.
