Norwegians were able to play their National Championship in Norway for the first time since 2003 earlier this week! Due to legislation, the Norwegian Championship was played abroad for years as players needed to travel to Ireland to play their National tournament.

2014 WSOP Main Event runner-up Felix Stephensen was able to win the Championship as a monster 1,974-player field (all from Norway) participated in the historic event.

Congratulations to all that made this event possible – great job, Norway!
