Lennaárd Crushes BOM Deluxe, Bergman Pulls Off Surprise Proposal

This year at the PokerListings Battle of Malta there was more than poker on the schedule. Two men met to settle years of bitter rivalry in the boxing ring, on the poker felt and on the chess board. Ken Lennáard is a well-known poker player and writer in Sweden and it was in the comment section of his blog that he first met Andreas Bergman. Harsh words followed, mostly from Bergman if you believe Lennáard's story, before Bergman suggested they meet face to face to put their beef to rest once and for all. We captured it on video and although it didn't pan out the way we hoped, the ending surprised us all. Check out the full short documentary to see the story unfold for yourself.

GPI's Alex Dreyfus: It's the Right Time to Start Sportifying Poker

Two and a half years ago Alex Dreyfus bought the Global Poker Index with the intention of making it the worldwide standard for poker rankings. He now says he's accomplished that goal and is looking forward to making poker a mainstream sport. Dreyfus competed in the PokerListings Battle of Malta, the biggest poker event in Malta's history, and says the event's low buy-in and major-tournament feel are a key way poker brands can attract new players to the game. Dreyfus says it's a format that's largely missing from the European tournament scene but that globally it's actually the fastest-growing style of poker event. Dreyfus goes on to explain his new projects the Global Poker Masters and the Global Poker League, two new initiatives to make poker more marketable to a mainstream audience. Through both events Dreyfus hopes to create a system where the best poker players in the world don't have to buy-in to major events, but can instead compete for big prizes supported by team owners and advertising sponsors, similar to professional golf. Check out the full interview and stay tuned for more interviews and highlights from the 2014 Battle of Malta.
