Hungarian daddy-daughter team takes part in IFMP poker tournament in Kiev

Bréda Bianka and her father Lászlo are competing alongside other Hungarians as part of an initiative to clean up the image of poker worldwide.

A Hungarian team is proving a success at this year’s International Federation of Match Poker (IFMP) tournament in Kiev.

Bréda Bianka and her father Lászlo are competing alongside other Hungarians as part of an initiative to clean up the image of poker worldwide.

Bréda is a well-known R’n’B DJ and amateur poker player. She plays poker for fun both live and online, and the sport is in her blood thanks to her father.

IFMP is the governing body of sports poker, promoting poker and its Match Poker variation as a skill game and have highlighted the Hungarian team as good examples of sportsmanship in the game.

“Team #Hungary's Bréda Bianka in action during the #MatchPoker #EuropeanNationsCup in Kiev where she and her father both had the honor of representing their nation! #RoadtoPeru,” an IFMP tweet reads.

Founded in April 2009 in Lausanne, Switzerland, home of the Olympic movement and most other sports federations, IFMP champions poker as “a mind-sport of strategic skill”, alongside chess, bridge, draughts and Go.

As it campaigns to clean up poker’s image, and lobbies legislators to separate poker from gambling, IFMP’s member nations now number more than 60 worldwide from five continents. IFMP events do not involve buy-ins or gambling.
