About Match Poker and IFMP:

Match Poker is a recognised game of skill and mind sport, played digitally and in teams. It challenges players’ strategic thinking, decision-making, and teamwork abilities in a dynamic and competitive environment. Match Poker is governed by the International Federation of Match Poker (IFMP), which promotes the sport globally and organises international tournaments. Match Poker is a team sport where the luck element in conventional poker via the random draw of cards has been removed.

Far from being another poker variation to sit alongside Texas Hold’em, Omaha and Stud etc. it is in fact a revolutionary approach for how any of these variations can be structured into meaningful and sporting competition through a more skill based format. Match Poker is a recognised sport that has reduced the element of luck, while embracing a digital contest based on skill, providing an exciting and challenging team competition. It involves the thrill of strategy, emotions, bluffs, and traps in a game that’s both intellectual and social, with all the fun and excitement of a team sport!
