poker face competitionOnline Poker spot and Casino are running a competition with a difference; they want to see a picture of players’ best poker faces. The winner will be entered into the land-based PAF Poker Challenge tournament, with a prize package worth around €1,300.

Potential winners have until Wednesday to upload their photo, and all who do will be given a free voucher worth $5.50 to use at

The winner is decided by players voting for their favourites on the site. By the end of Wednesday, the submission with the most votes will be announced, and along with a seat to the PAF Poker Challenge they will receive a travel and hotel package for two.

Online Poker Manager for Rickard Petterson recently released a statement to say that their Poker Challenge Tournament already has a guaranteed prize pool of €100,000. The idea behind the poker face photos was to let players “express their personalities” as well as giving them an opportunity at “winning a fantastic prize.”

The PAF Poker Challenge is an annual event, of which the current edition is the seventh. This year it is scheduled to take place on the Aland Islands from May 20 to 22. The buy-in costs €800, and the competition caps at just 200 players. PAF say they expect to build on the success of seven previous years of experience, with last years tournament selling out two weeks before the scheduled start.

“We are really serious about poker at” continued Petterson. “But we think it can be serious fun too…people should get their tickets now.”

As well as their land-based Casino HQ in the Aland Islands and a strong online presence, PAF also own many casinos on-board passenger ferries and cruise ships which operate on the Baltic Sea and on International waters. They began investing in Internet gaming in 1996, and have seen continuable growth in their online services since then. Visit their website here:
