Seat 1: Gustav Vadenbring, 44, originally from Sweden and living in Malta - 5,075,000

Gustav Vadenbring is the Chief Financial Officer for a Malta-based i-gaming company; making the final of the Battle of Malta is by far his best live tournament result. He started playing poker as a youngster with his grandfather but started taking the game seriously around 10 years ago, specialising in STTs. He said: “Actually, I really like playing live sit’n’gos. I used to do it a lot when I was young but now I’m very busy with my kids so I don’t have time to play – I just fit it in when I can. That’s why I am here today.” Vadenbring has loved playing the MPNPT @ Battle of Malta Main Event. “It’s a fun tournament with a lot of players and I think it’s very well organized. Thanks to the pretty low buy-in, a lot of players can join and enjoy some nice days of ‘true poker’. It’s been amazing since the start – a huge event – but what I have liked most is that it’s given me the chance to play close to poker pros and learn from them.”

Gustav said it would be hard at the final table as he’s short-stacked. He added: “I will just try to make it happen. I hope I can do my best.”
