The countdown has begun. Set to sizzle through the summer months of August and September, the qualifying tournaments for the Norwegian FHM/Purple Lounge Poker Tour started in earnest this month with sponsor Purple Lounge offering ten opportunities to win a free seat on the tour.
The freeroll tournaments, held at 20:30 BST, spanned over a period of four weeks giving players the option to choose in which tour stop they wanted to play. From Bergen to Stavenger, they simply entered the appropriate freeroll tournament and won their seat at that tournament.
The tour has generated a great deal of interest in recent weeks in both the UK and in the Norwegian market, with coverage by TV2 and all the popular print magazines. This is in no small part due to the uniqueness of the event itself.
More than just your average tournament, The Norwegian Purple Lounge/FHM Poker Tour has launched itself onto the circuit with a dazzling extravaganza of entertainment events from live shows to themed activities. What’s more, the all girl, FHM glamour model card-dealing team, led by feisty Nordic beauty Aylar, have lent an irresistible twist to the dealing of cards.
“This is certainly a tremendous addition to the poker tour circuit, with Purple-Lounge.com again raising the bar in glamour and fame stakes of poker,” purred cyber siren and spokesperson for Purple Lounge, Tara. “Confirmed qualifiers for the event included poker titans such as Jenny Woo, and an extremely talented body of worldwide Purple Lounge players all playing to win this new title. We are very excited.”
Tour stops include Frederikstad. Lillehammer, Kristiansand, Sandefjord, Tonsberg, Stravenger, Haugeund, Bergen, Trondheim, and Oslo, where the final will take place on the 15th of September.
