Battle of Malta 2015 - The island’s largest poker event

Battle of Malta 2015 is the island’s largest poker event ...

The first Battle of Malta was held in late November 2012, with a 150.000 Euro Guarantee.  On its first edition, the event had 349 entries coming from all over the world. In the following year, 2013, almost 900 players took part smashing the 200.000 Euro Guarantee. 

By 2014, BOM is now considered a mini festival for poker players, who appreciated how the event combined poker together with cultural tourism and other entertainment aspects.  The 2014 edition broke the record as the biggest poker tournament ever held in Malta with 1,447 entries during the main event and a massive prize pool guarantee - 500.000 Euros.

Players flew from all over Europe and other locations to spend five to seven days in Malta.  A combination of leisure, holiday and visits of the surrounding beautiful landscapes that the gorgeous Mediterranean island has to offer, paired with its architectural peculiarity.

Acting in complete respect of local law, and bei…

The Other Door - What's wrong, Why not?

Exposing bodies, Uprooting routines, intertwined relationships, What's Wrong, Why Not....The very notions set by society are stripped to their core to expose The Other......this performance aims to establish alternative possibilities of the socio-cultural construct.

Within the concepts of gender and culture, it provides a fluid interpretation that analyses notions of ambiguity. Arguably, The Other has the potential to challenge the simplistic overview as being merely framed by male and female binaries. This piece explores the possibility that, when devoid of the social layering of constructed binaries, the body has the potential to reveal transcribed texts that are more deeply embodied, creating a fluid experiential body of ambiguity. 

Throughout the production, the body is considered to be an unfinished entity, constantly evolving to expose a new Other.

Representatives of Hard Rock Cafe Malta, this week gave a supporting hand to the rehabilitation of injured turtles in the Maltese islands – a project which is run by Nature Trust (Malta) .  At present there are four turtles under rehabilitation at San Lucjan tower in Marsaxlokk. Three of these were found recently injured close to the coast mainly having swallowed fishing line and hooks.

In the last months Hard Rock Cafe Malta, launched a campaign where part of the proceeds from a special collectable pin featuring a rockin-turtle pin were aimed at supporting the setting up of a new wildlife rehabilitation centre in Xrobb L-Ghagin. This centre will be providing more modern facilities for the rehabilitation of injured turtles and cetaceans found in the Maltese Islands as well as other local protected wildlife rescued such as hedgehogs, chameleons, bats, and other local mammals and reptiles.
