What a night for Finland's Jens Kyllonen
21-year-old Jens Kyllonen, a respected poker pro from Helsinki in Finland, tore up the virtual nosebleed tables on Full Tilt Poker this week, crushing a series of top players to take home an impressive $861 000 in a single session of 1 134 hands.
Playing $300/$600 PLO Six-Max, Kyllonen took on a series of formidable poker pros that included Esvedra, fellow Finn Patrik Antonius, ‘The Great Dane' Gus Hansen, DrugsorMe, and Andreas ‘skjervoy' Torbergsen.
The latter had a terrible night, losing almost a million dollars – much of it to Kyllonen.
The young Finn, who plays the live poker circuit as well as online, where he uses the handle Ingenious89, has racked up career earnings approaching $3 million, with lucrative firsts in the EPT Scandinavian Open and Copenhagen tournaments.
Other big overall winners in the session were ronnyr37617, who was up $234 000; DrugsOrMe, who took home $130 000 and NoPasaran with a profit on the night of $92 000.
