Over my time at the 2018 Malta Poker Festival, I took a number of pictures to help me remember the great times I had there. I’ve curated them through multiple Tweets and pictures, highlighting what was so special, to help capture what the entire experience was like.
I hope you enjoy experiencing the trip “through my eyes” and that it’ll perhaps convince you to head on over to Malta for a visit at some point, in particular for the next Malta Poker Festival. I know I’ll be going back some day!
Longtime poker fan Yishai Mendelsohn has never played poker for real money and had never witnessed a poker festival in person. In Malta for the 2018 Blockchain Summit, he decided to pay a visit to the inaugural Malta Poker Festival to finally experience firsthand fandom.
In this special guest post, we get to see things through his eyes and enjoy the ever-so-rare perspective of a brand new poker spectator.
The 2018 Malta Poker Festival was a big hit and much of that can be owed to the efforts put in by its founder Ivonne Montealegre. With two decades of experience in the poker industry, she’s had an incredible career that we explored in this interview. We also talk about the ingredients that helped make the inaugural Malta Poker Festival such a resounding success and the hard work and effort put in by so many people behind the scenes to pull it all off.
