Pokerfinnkampen 2006 Final Score
Finland – 1204 points vs. Sweden – 817 points
Winner: Ilari Sulasalmi playing for Finland
Terminator: Martin “Franke” von Zweigbergk playing for Finland
A trial tournament was held in December 2006 where 50 happy and maybe not to sober Finns took a cruise ship to Sweden with a daring challenge; we are better than you in poker. The first national battle was sold out with 100 participants and a very happy and not so sober Ilari Sulasalmi took home the individual prize. Martin “Franke” von Zweigbergk shocked almost everyone by taking out 8 Swedes on his own and thus securing the terminator title. Finland as a nation won with quite a margin and the bragging rights for 2006 was secured.
