Top player Bo Sehlstedt came in fourth in the Stockholm heat.

After 11 stops around poker-crazy Sweden, the conclusion of the Purple Lounge Swedish Poker Tour looms. The final table is set to be battled out in Stockholm in October.

"The tour has been a huge success and we're extremely happy that the players have had such a great time with us along the way!" said a Purple Lounge press release.

With stops from Malmö in the south to Skellefteå not far from the polar circle, the tour has elicited enormous interest from both players and onlookers.

Many hopefuls vied in the online qualifiers only to be eliminated, and most of those who remained bit the felt in the corresponding live final.

The press release went on to say, "We've seen some excellent poker and we're looking forward to the grand finale in October. Purple Lounge is returning to Stockholm for the finale and it promises to be a really exciting evening from what we've seen so far on the tour."

The reward for October's winner is a seven-day stay in Macau, a peninsula of the Chinese mainland known as the Las Vegas of east Asia. First prize includes flight and accommodation, and $1,000 cash to sweeten the pot.
