The last national championship outside of Norway - NCP 2015
Despite the tough regulation prohibiting the operation of poker tournaments within Norway, Norway-based poker enthusiasts can still participate in their excusively dedicated Norwegian Championship of Poker (NCP), one of the most anticipated tournaments making up the JP Poker Masters and Norwegian Championships, to be held in Ireland in late March. Strict, the Norwegian government establishes a strong law regarding gambling businesses. Interestingly, the countrys Ministry of Culture has recently amended the said regulation, providing an open door for the running of poker tournaments within Norway. That being said, this years edition could be the last Norwegian Poker Championship held outside of the country. Pending this, Norwegian poker players should move to another country to indulge themselves in the game of poker. From March 20 to 29, 2015, the City West Hotel in Dublin will be abuzz with the Norwegian Championship of Poker, an event accessible for 800 of entry-fee.
Last year, this Norwegians-only event attracted 1,263 players. Unbeatable as he was, Vegard Nygaard wrapped the battle up by claiming the first-place prize of 102,780 of the 909,360 prize pool. The 2015 Norwegian Championship of Poker actually features 57 events, all with affordable buy-ins, ranging from 60 to 2,000. Include the likes of the 150 NLH Deepstack "Welcome Party", 150 by-in Open Face Chinese, 1,000 Team Event and the 2,000 NLH High Roller. Visitors are also allowed to participate in the 550 buy-in JP Poker Masters scheduled from March 27 to 28.
