Your old pal Bam Stroker here, and I've good news! We're running another Fanfest poker tournament this year. Last year's tourney was a big success and a lot of fun so we're happy to be bringing it back for another spin. My AUTZ spacepal jurekiedi will be in charge this year. He's a seasoned poker player and referee and did a great job running the EVE Down Under poker tourney last year so you'll be in good hands.

Once again the tournament will be held on Wednesday (the day before Fanfest officially starts) at the Bryggjan Brugghús downstairs from CCP's offices, just a short walk from Harpa and downtown Reykjavik. Ásgeir and the team at Bryggjan were fantastic hosts last year and it's worth paying them a visit to try some of their amazing craft beer and enjoy a delicious lunch.

CCP are stepping up to the plate and offering some incredible prizes for the top finishers in the tournament, including limited edition copies of the new Frigates of EVE book, EVE merch and some other really cool things I kind of want to leave as a surprise for the day. ;)

We'll also be providing some additional prizes for players who get the first flush, straight and so on, as well as bounties for knocking out any devs who may sign up to join us. So even if you're not the greatest poker player you've still got a chance to bag some dank swag!


Where: Bryggjan Brugghús, Grandagarður 8, 101 Reykjavík (map link)
Date: Wednesday, 5th April
Time: 1pm* until the tournament concludes (6pm at the latest)


Sign up is free! Just visit the link below and fill out the form to enter. There are 40 seats total. 38 will be available to players, 2 will be reserved for devs. The first 38 players to sign up will be guaranteed entry. Any subsequent sign-ups will go onto a standby list and will be called up in the event of no-shows. All players will be notified of their status (either entered or on standby) a couple of days prior to the event.

Sign up form:

* Even if you only make the stand-by list you should come down to Bryggjan anyway! It's a great place to chill with your mates and you might be lucky enough to get a tap on the shoulder if someone else pulls out.

Hope to see you guys there for another awesome tournament!
