Women decide everything – even where a man goes on vacation
The Festival Malta is only 27 days away. Each of these days offers the opportunity to qualify for the festival at a discounted price through our many online partners. There are options for every taste and budget. You can win only a € 550 Main Event ticket, a package that includes accommodation, or a package that includes travel expenses – choose the one that suits you best and come on board.
Speaking of coming on board, last Friday, The Festival Queens tournament took place simultaneously in Paf, Coolbet, GUTS, Betfred poker rooms, bringing together a total of 126 players at the online tables, who generated a prize pool of € 3858.40 through buy-ins. This also meant that the guaranteed prize pool of a three-thousand-euro package was nicely filled, and only narrowly missed the chance for a fourth package to be awarded.
|Total Prize Pool||€ 3858.40|
|€ 1000 package wins||3|
|Package winners||2 x &|
For those who remember, male players were also allowed to play, but if they won, they were "obliged" to gift the prize package to someone else. Here, we present to you The Festival Series Team's vision of how one man played and what happened then.
Stig Solskjær Johansen & wife Katie from Norway
Stig's wife: What you are doing?
Stig: Honey. I am playing online poker. The Festival Malta satellite. The TOP 3 get a package
Stig's wife: Are you winning?
Stig: NO, I am short stack, soon out
Stig's wife: NO. You Better win it! Otherwise no sex tonight!
.... a few hours later
Stig: I won a package! Can I get my present now?
Stig's wife: NO! I am tired!
As with most things in this life, this time too, the woman's will and cunning and the man's wishful thinking decided that Stig won the package, which he ultimately gave to his wife. Congratulations to Katie, who got what she wanted, and congratulations to Stig, who… ee.. .who, thanks to the woman's friendliness, can now come with her to Malta to enjoy the holiday.
Marita Mägi, Estonia
However, who did not have to give the package as a gift and is coming to Malta to enjoy it herself is the Estonian female player Marita Mägi. Marita is an experienced poker player who has successfully performed in online tournaments before. For example, in 2020, Marita managed to win the online series competition of the Estonian Women's League, which unfortunately she later failed to transform into a victory in the live final, but we will see that already in Malta, whether this time history will repeat itself or Marita will write it in capital letters. Being The Festival Queen sounds proud.
Unfortunately, we did not manage to get in touch with the third qualifier, but we wish her the best of luck and hope to meet in Malta.
Tuesday - 20:00 CET Jevakims Special Satellite
However, we can make all those poker lovers who love female poker players happy by knowing that already today one of the most respected Norwegian poker players, Ylva, is once again playing at the poker table and not only playing but also streaming. The Festival Jevakims Satellite starts at 20:00 CET and can be seen as a broadcast HERE.
