The Poker Tour Finnkampen or Pokerfinnkampen is an annual poker tournament established in 2006. Pokerfinnkampen is the official poker national competition between Sweden and Finland.

Sweden and Finland have a long tradition of good competitions regardless if it is athletics, ice hockey or motor sports. Now with the addition of Poker the excitement is completed. The first pilot tournament of Pokerfinnkampen, held in Stockholm, finished with Finland ending up as the clear winner by achieving a victory in all three competition categories; individual ranking, terminator achievement and country total player points.
