Hi DD,

As Kev has already outlined they are not allowed to play live in Norway.

This is their Championship which they have ran alot of qualifiers and leagues ect for them to qualify.

Last year the main event attracted 848 players which is the largest national poker event in Europe and possibility the World. Which is part of the national pride for each and every Norwegian to play the event. If the event was open to non Norwegians the organisers believe less Norwegian players would travel to game as it would mostly likely be won every other year be a non Norwegian.

There is a total of 51 tournament of which 6 are for Norwegians only. Of these events there's only really the main event that most Irish players would be interested in playing. For sure some would like to play the PLO and the Ladies event but I don't think to many would play the €2000 HORSE, €1500 Heads-Up or €500 Limit Holdem.

Believe me when I say this, there will be more action at this event than most can handle with what you are allowed to play.

Hi Jason,

Frode thinks we will 30+ players.
This is a new event in the Norwegian Championship schedule so it's hard to guess. We do have 20+ players for the 50k KR (around 8k min buy-in) high roller cash game which will be on the weekend before.

I guess it depends on who is still in the main event. I've also been in contact with some high profile players from the states who are thinking about coming over for this and the Irish open.

Could probably do with pulling all the threads together.

Iirc its a 3 day event (€675 + €75) starting on Fri 23rd @ 6pm with a 20k stack / 1 hour. I'm sure its in here somewhere though in one of the threads.
