Redbet LIVE is coming to Malta (October 10th-18th 2016) and bringing their popular €350 three day Main Event structure, as well as a host of other games and formats. Redbet LIVE festivals have proved to have a huge impact on the local poker scenes that they have visited with a unique focus on low-stakes players and fun, creating huge prizepools by attracting players to the enjoyable atmosphere that is Redbet LIVE’s trademark.
Redbet LIVE know that people play poker primarily for money, but noticed that in recent years there has been so much focus on huge buyins that the average recreational player was getting left behind. Redbet LIVE festivals are perfectly designed to offer a recreational player an extraordinary chance to take part in an aspirational poker experience that won’t break the bank. Tournaments are run like the higher buy-in events, at glamorous venues, with professional staff and full media coverage, but the lower buyins mean that the average low-stakes player has a better chance to compete against the bulk of the fields.Malta may prove to be a tough nut to crack, with some of the biggest brands on the international poker scene also choosing the beautiful island to hold events. The Redbet LIVE team is positive about the festival, and confident that local players and those from around Europe will identify with the levels of play offered.
Why should it only be nose-bleed stakes players that get to come to somewhere like Malta for poker?
The Redbet LIVE Main Event buy-in is over €150 less than the next nearest low-stakes brand, and side events start at just €30. By encouraging participation from new players, inexperienced players and players looking for a fun holiday, Redbet LIVE events are quite simply less of a long shot than other brands. Redbet LIVE is not looking to break records and make huge claims, but to ensure players just have a laugh, as well as an actual, tangible shot at winning some money. Redbet LIVE may not be trying to break records, but the last series of Redbet LIVE events, as part of the Olomouc Poker Festival in the Czech Republic, did just that, creating the largest number of entries that the local scene had ever witnessed with over 1400 players entering a €175 buy-in game. Redbet LIVE may have found a sweet spot in the market, providing a week of poker for those who are deeply passionate about the game, but don’t want to sit at a table with world-class names when poker is their hobby, not their profession.
Satellites for the Redbet LIVE Malta Main Event are running now, and feeders start at just €1.10, proving Redbet LIVE’s commitment to getting micro and low stakes online players into a live tourney. The micro-stakes feeders roll into two weekly package satellites, €54 with re-buys and a €135 freezeout to win a package including buy-in, hotels and spending money; this ensures there is a route for players at all levels. Seat only satellites will be available from the beginning of September, and the final weekly package satellite will play on 29th September.
Flights to Malta from all over Europe are reasonably cheap, and the island has a wealth of hotels at a range of prices. Many flights from major European cities are available on Saturdays, and the festival includes an entry day to the Main Event on Sunday 16th to ensure those who can only fly out after a week’s work get the chance to play.
Redbet LIVE has consciously situated their festival just before the EPT Malta leg (18th-29th October) so any EPT players can just swoop over to the lovely island a week early, and play in some great warm-up events, preparing for the marathon that is the EPT. There are plenty of different low-stakes events during the week, and the €350 Main Event plays between 14th and 18th October, by design, to run neatly into the EPT schedule.

"mFala69" from Czech Republic (pictured) also nabbed himself a €1000 package, and he knows the value of Redbet LIVE events after coming 3rd in Dublin in 2015 for almost €7k.
