Frozen Poker Won by WSOP Champion 2006-04-04
The latest round of the Extreme Poker tournament, played in sub-zero temperatures, was won by Robert Varkonyi, champion of the 2002 World Series of Poker Main Event.
The tournament was played above the Arctic Circle in Finland's, Ice Castle, a location chosen by Juha Helppi, the winner of the first Extreme Poker Challenge tournament played underwater in the Caribbean.
Players in the frozen tournament were allowed to buy back into the game by trading in some of their clothes once their chip-stack ran low.
Just three hands into the tournament, Varkonyi needed to use his re-buy option, trading in his coat after going broke against Daniel Stern, an online qualifier. Varkonyi continued the remainder of the tournament wearing only a T-shirt, despite temperatures of minus 10 degrees centigrade. He managed to stay warm by running around the hall between hands.
The final round found Varkonyi and Helppi facing each other, after having beaten the four internet qualifiers.
Varkonyi reportedly said that though he had suffered through the most excruciating cold he has ever experienced, winning the title made it all worthwhile.
The Next Extreme Poker event will take place in an aeroplane 10,000 feet above the Nevada desert, with losing contenders required to leap from the plane and parachute down to the ground.
