Purple Lounge Poker and Moore magazine are making sure the 2007 Swedish Poker Tour is one to remember, with supermodel dealers, perpetual entertainment and a giant prize package for the winner. And online satellites to get in on it are underway.
Top models Aylar and Michelle Orpe will be leading the Purple Lounge Poker crew through an 11-city tour this summer, with live events planned across the country culminating in a big August final.
To win a sought-after seat on the tour: simply log into your Purple Lounge player account and freeroll your way in.
Dates for online qualifiers to corresponding live events have been set, and the list follows below:
|Stockholm||Wednesday, April 25|
|Göteborg||Sunday, April 29|
|Båstad||Wednesday, May 2|
|Halmstad||Sunday, May 6|
|Helsingborg||Wednesday, May 9|

The Stockholm live event then goes June 16, with the following eight set for four each in July and August.
Seats won from the online qualification freerolls are for their corresponding city (i.e. Stockholm, Göteborg, Båstad, etc.), and aren't transferable.
Top three players in the live tournaments will win a seat in the final and some similarly desirable gifts, with first place spoils including a Purple Lounge poker table, a 30GB iPod, a poker chip set, and a membership in the VIP "Quintessentially" club.
Winner of the Final at the end scores seven days in Macau - the gambling destination of the Far East - including flights, accommodation and $1000 spending money.
