Jens Kyllönen

May 29, 2016


Jens Kyllönen started playing poker 2006, winning $10 from a freeroll and quickly grinding it up to $300 playing limit hold’em. He then switched over to no-limit hold’em and continued to quickly rise in limits and just one year later played $5-10 and $10-20 regularly. He played some sit-n-go’s and tournaments on the side as well and managed to win the ECOOP main event in June 2008 for $315,000.

At around that time he started to play Pot-Limit Omaha and made a full transition from NLHE in the beginning of 2009. After completing his military service in January 2009 he began playing the live circuit and at the second EPT he played, EPT Copenhagen in February, he managed to win it and take home the neat sum of €878,057. He has been playing highstakes PLO for the last few years and is a regular at the nosebleeds.
