Norwegian Poker Championships To Be Held in Nottingham

Yes, we know Nottingham isn't in Norway, but those smart Norwegians have found a way around a government law in their home country

Monday 31st March 2008

They say you have to change your game up, keep your opponent on their toes, right? Well, the Norwegians certainly know how to do that, having just announced that this years Norwegian Poker Championships will be held not in Osla or Oppland, but Nottingham. That’s Nottingham on the M1, in England…

The brand new Dusk Till Dawn card room will be playing host to the Norwegians after the Nordic government had banned poker, considering it to be a lottery. That means that anyone playing could face a criminal prosecution. The solution was to take the championships off Norwegian soil. The 7th Norwegian Poker Championships will run from 28th April to 5th May.

A direct flight from Oslo direct to Nottingham will be drafted for the event, with local hotels chosen to host the visitors. This is proof for DTD who had argued in court that the opening of the card room would be beneficial to the local economy. Around 400 players are expected to make the trip over the North Sea.

The schedule is as follows:
