888poker Teams Up with Swedish Poker Federation

One way for an online poker operation to gain additional traction in a given poker market is to team up with some of the local organizations and to host some of their events online for them. This is exactly what 888poker have struck up with the Swedish Poker Federation, in the shape of a 2-year deal, which is essentially about 888poker hosting the entire online component of the Swedish Poker Championships, known as Poker-SM.
The Swedish Poker Federation is a non-profit organization, which aims to promote the game in the country, using all its membership fees as well as corporate sponsorships towards this goal. Only Swedish residents can play in the events set up by the Federation, and there are indeed two such festivals held each year, a live one and an online one. Thus far, the company behind PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, Rational Group, was the one who hosted the online events as well as the online qualifiers to the live component of the calendar.

The deal has been struck up just in time too: Poker-SM gets going on May 24, wrapping up on May 30, and it features no fewer than 12 events. The Series comes complete with a Main Event, which is a 2-day affair, scheduled for May 29-30, and which features a buy-in of $160. It also features deep starting stacks (20k chips) and 30-minute blind levels, so there will be plenty of opportunities to put skills to work. Those looking to play their way into the PSMO Main Event for less will be able to do so through 2 satellites which are also included in the schedule, which cost $5.50 and $12 respectively.
Play at 888poker. If you're from Sweden, the PSMO awaits you, and you'll even be able to make it into the Main Event for pocket change.
