EVIL TABLE Poker Showdown
A couple of weeks ago one of the funniest events of the season took part in Stockholm. It was the Evil Table poker tournament where 16 pro snowboarders took part in a long and sweaty battle.
For some reason, most snowboard pros have lately developed a strong passion for Poker. Some of them make a lot of money and some don’t and just playing for fun. The idea was to invite the bulk
of Europes pro riding poker lovers to Stockholm to have them battle each other in a prestigious tournament for glory and wealth.
The Event was held at Klubben in central Stockholm where the Evil Table team, me, Chris Sörman, Simon Ax, Jonas Carlson and Martin Sandberg were battling riders like Ingemar Backman, Kalle Ohlsson, and Ronnie Andersson.
16 players started on two tables and after 5 hours it was Jonas Carlson who claimed the throne and at the same time got €2000 richer. The party didn’t stop here but went on to the well know luxury club Café Opera and the FHM party also presented by Evil Table.
The whole event turned out to be a success, thanks to the organisers and the riders. We will for sure make this happen again, so in the meantime: Log in to http://www.eviltable.com to play with us!
