It’s been said that big surprises may be found in surprisingly little parcels. Malta is a little island in the Mediterranean Sea, yet it has a huge and well-deserved reputation despite being just 45 kilometers in length and 15 kilometers in width, with its capital, Valetta, fitting comfortably into a single square kilometer.
Even if you’ve never visited or have no prior knowledge of this renowned tourist attraction, you’ve probably seen a fair amount of it in films like Gladiator and Troy as well as television shows like the worldwide smash hit Game of Thrones. Although though few people have watched Popeye, the bird released in 1980, I feel obligated to mention the Popeye Village tourist attraction.
Pokerlistings regulars may have noted that Malta is also a top location for international players. PokerStars, the online poker behemoth, is bringing back its Summer Festival Malta for a second year, and it’s shaping up to be another blockbuster. The opportunity to win life-changing amounts of money in live poker tournaments is just one more reason why real money online poker is the ideal, user-friendly conduit between online and live poker events (and a dose of ego-boosting glory, of course).
Six days of thrilling poker, sun, sea, and all the tourist-friendly pleasures that Malta has to offer will come together at the Intercontinental Arena for the Summer Festival, which runs from June 27 to July 2.
