Icelandic Poker League

Play the IPL and win an EPT Grand Final prize package!

The Icelandic Poker League lets you challenge other players in the country and pick up great prizes along the way. Up for grabs is almost $3,000 in monthly cash prizes, not to mention a prize package for the European Poker Tour (EPT) Grand Final in Madrid! With tournaments running every night of the week, it’s your chance to prove you’ve got what it takes.

The League has two divisions and will run in April, with points awarded every time you enter any of the daily tournaments. The more tournaments you play and the higher you finish, the more points you’ll earn. At the end of April, the top 25 players in both of the Divisions win cash prizes!
