Helsinki Freezeout 2008

Helsinki Freezeout is Finland’s most prestigious annual tournament. This high-profile event attracts many of the top Finish players such as Juha Helpi, "Hellraiser" and others known from the international poker tournament circuit. Due to its proximity to Sweden, you will also find many well-known Swedes participating.

Last time we went there with Team Rakemeback, our top finisher took 9th place – Time to see if we can improve on that!
