Partypoker live debuts inaugural Nordic Poker Championship.

By RP, August 2, 2017

party poker LIVE is hosting its inaugural Nordic Poker Championships (NPC), with a Euro 1 million guarantee, in Prague – Czech Republic from 14-18 December 2017.

The NPC will be held at the upmarket Grandior Hotel in Prague and accepts only players who have Nordic passports (or residential status in a Nordic country).

“Prague is such a great place to be in December – great festive atmosphere – and the influx of hundreds of Nordic players is certainly going to add to that,” John Duthie, president of partypoker LIVE, said. “Nordic players are not just excellent at poker, but are also pretty good at partying so this will certainly be a fun event. I imagine it will be a tough field though – I’m not sure how I’d fancy my chances if I found myself sitting at a table full of Nordics! I expect we’ll see a lot of the big names coming along, but this also is a great opportunity for recreational Nordic players to compete for a very big prize pool in a great location.”

The Nordic Poker Championships is one of a series of regional Championship events being hosted by partypoker LIVE. Next month is the Euro 1 million guaranteed German Poker Championships taking place at Kings Casino in Rozvadov from 6th August.

The CAD $2 million guaranteed Canadian Poker Championships is scheduled for 8th September.
