Which Country is THE Pokerland  0   
Can't pick your own country. (well.. of course you can but that's no fun) Tongue

When you see/hear a name of a country, which one brings POKER to your mind...?

actually 3 countrys...USA, denmark and finland.

denmark/finland because they have the best players (or?) Smile
but i think the country that brings poker to my mind is USA because most players are coming from the states, the 5card draw western.............and ofc VEGAS.

Well several big poker profiles are from at least canda and italy, im not sure about vietnam though. But seriously what other reason do you have for wanting to put sweden other than that you live there?

We almost have atleast one player on every finaltable but names is diffrent and that is nice . Thats prove that we is one of the best nations. And Sweden have me the superdonk Aww crap! Aww crap!

Yes and the states have half the final table almost every time. Besides, there are hardly any famous swedish poker players, I can see no real arguement for it being the poker country, once again your choice is based entirely on you living in sweden.

Every countrey fear seden players. We very smart but maybe u and me doesnt count Big Smile . I only say Vietnam,France Canada ,Italy and Spain.
And USA have 95 procent of the starting people in every tournament.

well i would say that a lot of players would make it more of a poker country rather than less. Besides though we have a some final tables sweden have very few actual brecelet winners. I might agree with you to the extent of giving sweden the title of a poker country, but never the. And I don't think anyone would objectivly think so.

Cardplayer made an investigation on which country won most medals pr participant and Denmark won with allmost double as many medals(wins) pr participant as the runner up which country that was runner up I can't remember.

Partypoker also made a research to find which nationality had most winners, and guess what Smile over 25% of the danes playing on Party are winning players(think it was 27,?%). That's alot compared to you normally say that only 5-10% of the players are winners.

Don't want to ruin the thread but it's actually not up to discussion Denmark is the strongest poker nation that's a proven fact Cool

Strongest countries in my order:

Denmark
Finland
Sweden
USA (Nevada obv)
Norway

I still think there should be other factors than success when determining the poker country, come on I honestly don't think that there is much of a contention about USA being the poker country right now, come on, the biggest poker game right now is TEXAS hold 'em for gods sake.

Results speak louder than words in poker and in most other things too for that sake.

I won't argue with you about the statistics, but I don't think that results is the sole factor when determining the poker country. I would no doubt say that we are in the poker decade at the moment, but I can assure you that there are more loosing players now than ever.

Scotty Nguyen, J C Tran, David Pham, Chau Giang are a few of the big names from Vietnam...

Well, Sweden does have a few good players, and has good results in total, but I dont think we have any superduper players here?

To put it the other way arround.
My first thought when I were young and heard Poker were a 5 card draw in a saloon in a western movie, and of course in USA. They drink wiskey and it always ends with a fight.
