World Cup of Poker: Team Iceland
For the past couple of weeks, we've been introducing you to the World Cup of Poker IV finalists. Here are three members of Team Iceland who are getting packed for Barcelona.
My name is Fridrik (Fredrick). I'm 26 years old and called Frikki. I was a sports bar owner but i sold it and started a marketing company with my uncle. I've been playing poker for a little over a year. I mostly play 45-player turbo tournaments, but have made it to the final table in some regular tournaments. So far, the World Cup of Poker has been unreal--so much fun. I just want to thank PokerStars for putting on the WCP and giving guys like me a chance to see what the can do in a real live tournament without having to pay lots of money for it. Just playing well is rewarded.
I'm 26 years old and I am self employed. I don’t play as mush poker as I would like and I would like to play higher stakes. I live in Reykjavik, Iceland. I mostly play at PokerStars. I have five year-old son.
I've been playing poker for about three years and moved over to PokerStars because I consider my self a tournament player. As you know, PokerStars is the best site for tournaments. I don’t play much live, but hopefully I will play more in near future. It is a great honor to be the Team Captain of the Icelandic team. I hope I can play for the Icelandic team every year. Not long ago the last World Cup of Poker was televised here in Iceland. GO ICELAND!
I'm 42 years old and sales manager from Reykjavik. I worked as a fisherman for 15 years . I'm half Spanish and half Icelandic. I have three kids and have been playing poker for two years. I took third place in the Icelandic championship last year, first in the place Icelandic open, and 4000th place or something in the World Series 2006 main event after winning a satellite on PokerStars last year. The experience has been great and I'm really looking forward to playing in
