The EPT Final and WSOP

We are approaching the EPT Final in Monte Carlo, and the event looks to have the biggest prizepool in poker's history (outside the US). Almost every Poker Icons player will be attending the EPT Final in Monte Carlo, and we would not be surprised if one of them took it home.

We just finished up the EPT in San Remo and it had a staggering 1200 players entering, giving the winner; Constant Rijkenberg almost $2 million for his efforts.

Some of the Poker Icons players have been tipped as the "ones to watch" during the WSOP, so it's going to be interesting to see if these predictions come through :-)

Good luck to all our players - and partners as well!

The revealing of Peter Jepsen

Peter "Zupp" Jepsen is a cool guy, so we needed a cool way of breaking the news that he's the newest member to Betfair Poker's pro team! So we announced to the media that they should all meet in the hotel lobby during the EPT in Copenhagen to see who it was. In walked Peter fully dressed in a motorcycle outfit and with a helmet on. He stood in the lobby without saying a word or showing his face for 10 minutes, before he lead the way out to a custom bus waiting outside where he finally took of his helmet and showed himself to the press. Yes it was unothorodox, but it got the attention we were looking for :)

After day 1a we have Albert Iversen on third place. Arnaud Mattern is also still in the game. Today, we look forward to see Annette Obrestad, Soren Kongsgaard, Michael Tureniec, Peter Jepsen, Jesper Hougaard, Stefan Mattsson, Ramzi Jelassi, Jonas Molander, Andrew Feldman and Casper Hansen in action.

One of the most exciting day 1 tables ever is probably also going to take place; Jesper Hougaard, Michael Tureniec, Annette Obrestad, Gus Hansen and Bertrand Grospellier all at the same table! An exciting table and day to follow. The action starts in a couple of minutes...

Poker Icons Lounge preparation

We are having a Poker Icons VIP lounge for our players, partners and friends during the Pokerstars EPT Copenhagen, and here is a billion things to take care of for the lounge - but thank god we got people who have done it before and know the drill.

Having a poker agency lounge is something new at the EPT (thanks to the EPT organizers for allowing it), and we hope the visitors will like it.

We are sending anything from 10 to 30+ players to each EPT event and want to take care of them the best way possible. After all, being a high paid poker pro is no picnic so we can at least ease the burden by doing this No seriously, it's something we have are thrilled to do as it's a nice way of bringing together the agency, players, partners and friends...

Big name joined Poker Icons!

WPT and EPT (high roller event) winner Juha Helppi from Finland just agreed to let Poker Icons represent him as his poker agency.

It wasent without fierce competition we won his signature - but we won

We really look forward to working with this fantastic player who is actually our first player from Finland (!)

It's days like this that make it worth while with all the long hours and hard work...

Now - back to shoveling snow! (this year it's a snow record where I live!)

Exciting times..!

Ok, so now it's official - Poker Icons and Vegas Group have merged.

First let me give you a little background about both companies.

Vegas Group is considered as the best (poker) event organizers in Scandinavia as well as having some of Swedens finest poker players in their relatively new poker agency division. They also have a solid relationship with the Swedish poker and general media.

Poker Icons have a reputation as being the premier agency for professional poker players from all over the world. We are by far the biggest withing our niche in Europe, and we have good connections and relations with the worldwide poker media.

Ok, so here is how it all came about...

I came to talking with Lars Kollind, the CEO of Vegas Group sometime early in October 2008, and we both soon realized that we shared the same philosophy on how to do things and where we wanted to go...

It seemed like our companies had so many obvious synergies that a merge made perfect sense!

As you can imagine it's not very easy to merge 2 companies like we wanted to do, but after some friendly negotiations where we among other things, decided that Lars Kollind should be the CEO, while I take the role as President of the poker agency - here we are!

Both parties consider the merge as the birth of a true "super agency" within the industry, and we are now able to not only continue to deliver premium services to professional poker players, but also serve the partners in a very powerful 1-stop-shop way!

I don't know about you. but I am really excited!

(Oh and to top it off, we just signed a really high profiled poker player to our poker agency - more on that in the upcoming press release).
