MPF Autumn Back at Portomaso in Fall 2022

Fall poker is returning to Malta thanks to The Casino at Portomaso and the Malta Poker Festival (MPF). From October 24th-31st, MPF Autumn will fill the tables at Portomaso Casino headlined by a €500,000 guaranteed MPF Grand Event powered by partypoker. The festival will also feature the 4th edition of The Hendon Mob Championship (THMC) Malta.

It had been a long time since the last Malta Poker Festival before the MPF returned in April of 2022. It wasn’t hard to tell that live tournament poker was missed. The MPF Grand Main Event drew 1,014 entries, creating a €486,720 prize pool. Easily smashing the €300,000 guarantee. Daniel Lakerveld of the Netherlands was the victor, claiming a €71,000 top prize.

€500,000 Guaranteed MPF Autumn Grand Event

The MPF Autumn Grand Event powered by partypoker is raising the stakes and offering a €500,000 guaranteed prize pool. There are five Day 1 starting flights available with a buy-in of €550, kicking off on October 26th. Players will start with 50,000 in chips and a 40-min clock. Re-entry is available. Play is set for three days and satellites will be running.

THMC Malta and MPF Side Events

The Hendon Mob Championship will also be featured during the MPF Autumn. THMC Malta will begin with Day 1 on October 28th. THMC Malta carries a buy-in of €225 with a starting stack of 30,000 and 30-min levels. Jan Daan Hoogendijk bested a field of 327 en route to a €13,415 payday.
