The poker club Krukan in Stockholm is the biggest poker club in Sweden since it opened last year. Krukan is known to be a serious club where no shady business whatsoever is going on.

It's weird that stuff like this happens in the Sweden, i mean after all isn't that the country that houses the banks that holds the money of many of the world's dictator.

no way thats crazy..........a[fnqpivf0qyqqqo9eewe,f WTF those sweeds are crazy enough as it is dont start pissing them off when there playing poker. Thats just rude. I'd be well pissed off if i was waist deep in chips and then the gavvers busted in and stole my chips. Noooooooooooooooooooo bigoted freaks. why is it that the government just hates people doing what they want to do? If the club was well above board then all the players should demand compensation for the emotional stress they have been put under.

@NazPal: That would be Switzerland. Back when your president left the Philippines we had a tax on OWNING money in Sweden. If the s**t hits the fan again at the next election after this summer, we'll be stuck with that tax once again. Stupid socialists.
Poker clubs aren't forbidden, but playing for cash outside of the goverment-owned casinos is.
