“The Festival Fishes 100: Mau & Franke’s Epic 100-Year Poker Bash!”

“The Festival Fishes 100: Mau & Franke’s Epic 100-Year Poker Bash!”

When reaching the Abraham age of 50 years old, you might think that someone slows down a bit, but the opposite is true in this case. Franke & Mauritz: Friends and companions in daily life, but when it’s about poker, usually it changes into rivalry deluxe. But this time, they celebrate it together!

The Festival Series stands for unity, harmony, and healthy rivalry. A perfect combination of ingredients for this particular online satellite tournament. We have had similar tournaments in the past, for example, the ‘Franke 50 Springs’ and ‘Franke 50 Winters’. But also tournaments named as ‘Battle of the Fishes’ part I and part II.

For a mere buy-in of € 20, with optional re-entries (one of the favourite hobbies of both birthday boys), players can enjoy a great structured tournament, with a whopping 3x exclusive The Festival packages guaranteed! Each package is worth € 2,000 and will bring you to the Palace of King’s Casino in Rozvadov, where an epic tournament schedule is awaiting you!

50+50 Years of Card Games

Franke and Mauritz have been friends for a while. The biggest thing they have in common with each other is their endless passion for card games. Not only poker but also a game called ‘Chicago’. A great card game, which keeps them both as sharp as a knife. But where does the game ‘Chicago’ come from? Guess, Guess! Would it...?

It’s actually ‘allegedly’ invented in an underground poker club at Hammarbykajen, Stockholm in Sweden. On this day, the game is extremely popular in Sweden, as well as in Finland. Passionate fans of this card game call it perhaps a poker ‘mixed game’, whereas others compare it mostly with the game ‘bridge’. There are dozens of different understandings of this ‘old man’s game’, and when you see the two friends Franke & Mau play this game, you will find out what real competition is like. Competition keeps people sane, young, and sharp.
