    Uncertainties of the legal situation prompt a move

    The vagaries of Norwegian legal approaches to poker have resulted in this year's Norwegian Poker Championships moving to Nottingham in England, where a clearer and more practical attitude toward the game exists.

    The event will be hosted by the Dusk Til Dawn Club from April 28 to May 5, 2008.

    Police raids and Norwegian authorities declaring poker to be 'illegal' under current Norwegian law have prompted the move, despite the respected skills of many Norwegian players who will now have to travel to compete in their own national event, now in its seventh year. Up to 500 Norwegian poker players are likely to make the trip and test their skills, with aircraft charter arrangements in hand by the sponsors of this year's event, Expekt.com.

    Planning at present is aimed at presenting ten feature events, each with buy-ins around GBP100-500 and including no-limit and fixed-limit hold'em and pot-limit Omaha, with several rebuy and "second chance" events envisioned.
