German and Swedish tournaments sign sponsorship agreements with poker powerhouse
Two tournaments – the Swedish Poker Federation's Swedish Poker Championship, and the King's Casino Deutsche Poker Tour's German Championships of Poker – will benefit from 888Poker sponsorships in deals announced this week.
With the Kings deal, 888Poker gains ground in the Czech Republic, where the Rozvadov-based King's Casino will host the Deutsche Poker Tour (DPT) and German Championships of Poker, comprising nine events in all starting later this year but offering satellite opportunities right now.
888 will also use the opportunity to mount several 888Live events at the venue as it seeks to broaden its strategy of partnering with top live poker operators in joint events.
The Swedish sponsorship runs for two seasons through 2017 and starts late May with the online Swedish Poker Championships, giving players the chance to win big in the main event, along with a seat in the Poker-SM Live tournament in Malta later in the year
