The Battle of Malta 2022 Autumn Edition is over. Nine days of chip-shuffling symphony ended with the final chord: the finish of the Main Event, where OlyBet Last Longer’s winner Toivo Rinne finished among those who split the lion’s share. Yet, it was Greece’s Dimitrios Anastakis who secured the title and the biggest payday.

The Battle of Malta €555 Main Event via six starting days attracted 4,342 entries, so the €1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool was more than doubled. 15% of the field got paid at least a min-cash of €1,000, but the biggest payouts awaited the finalists.

There were around 150 Estonian players, dozens of players from Finland and Lithuania, and some Latvians. Many of them entered the Main Event, and at the start of Day 2, OlyBet invited them to participate in a unique Last Longer with a Kings of Tallinn 2023 €1,100 Main Event ticket for the winner. 

Thirty-four players joined the promotion, and at the beginning of Day 4, Finland’s Toivo Rinne became the last man standing. He secured a trip to Tallinn next February but had no intentions of stopping there.

The 22-year-old poker prodigy reached the final table in 8th place but managed to maneuver toward big money. On the way to the TOP3, Lady Luck was generous several times, saving Rinne’s tournament life with AQ vs KK with six players remaining. 

After three more busts, the TOP3 players agreed to a deal, which granted €125,200 for British player Will Jarman€165,900 for the OlyBet-patch-wearing fin, and €185,900 for the massive chip leader Dimitrios Anastakis. A whopping €100,000 was put aside for the eventual winner.

It didn’t take long, as the Greek managed to catch a stroke of luck and eliminate both opponents despite being dominated when the cards were turned over. Interestingly enough, both times, he held the same hand. Will Jarman departed 3rd when his AQ couldn’t survive against Anastakis’ A6. And just a few hands later, the same A6 for was victorious for the Greek vs. Rinne’s A7s. The Main Event was over and Anastakis bagged a mindblowing top prize of €285,900.

The Battle of Malta 2022 Autumn Edition has finished, but it’s less than seven months till the next Battle of Malta festival in May 2023. Before that, OlyBet invites all poker enthusiasts to the largest festival in Northern Europe – Kings of Tallinn 2023, which will take place at Olympic Park Casino and Hilton Tallinn Park hotel, starting from February 24th. Toivo Rinne confirmed that he will be there. Will you join him?
