PokerFinnkampen (PFK) is a well-known tournament for the Swedish and Finnish poker community.
The idea of this battle amongst nations is based on the original concept called Finnkampen that is an athletic competition between on its 11th anniversary and is usually hosted in Tallinn due to the geographic placement.
PFK is a 2 day tournament with a low buy-in for the leisure player and offers a lot of fun during the play and late nights in the hotel and casino bar. It´s a social and “team creating” event that your average player looks forward to being participating in. You make a lot of friends in both camps and the PFK concept creates memories for life.
The Main Event, whereas it is a competition between countries it is also a competition between the players, a “normal” tournament.
The concept is based on 3 different formats; a terminator; an individual; a country ranking.
There are payouts for the terminator system (€25 for each knock out) and for the individual (€300 from the buy-in goes to the tournament prizepool).
For each player, a country gets a ranking point dependent on place. All points are then counted for and we can crown the winning country.
We will also host tourneys such as Sviten Special, PLO and Deep Stack Texas – all with affordable buy ins.
Get ready for poker action around the clock!
We promise that you´ll have a lot of fun, drink a lot of Saku and make a lot of friends on this event.
