Per Indersund 2022 Champion
Last year Norwegian Championship was held in Dublin, Ireland and it was Per Indersund who was a crowned champion at the end, beating Robert Kaggerud in heads-up for the title and €127,500 prize.
But the main story of the last year championship was a Norwegian chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen, who finished the tournament in impressive 25th place and pulled a successful bluff along the way against John Erik Dagslot. The video already has hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube.
In addition to the tournaments, there are many cash game tables running with various different stakes. They start as early as 11:00 and last until dawn.
Along with the cash money prizes and the titles, winners will receive trophies and valuable watches!
