EPT Copenhague : 17-21 février 2009

Recommended Posts

- Chéri, tu connais cette "team Cénacle" ?

- Non, regarde sur Google...

- Whaou ! Ils font des tables de poker !

Regarde celle-là comme elle est belle !

- Ca doit être une entreprise sérieuse pour s'offrir une équipe de joueurs professionnels

Demain je les contacte, il nous faut une de ces tables de luxe.

Extrait d'une conversation entendue ce soir plus de 1000 fois dans les foyers en français, anglais, norvégien, suédois, finlandais, danois, allemand, italien, espagnol, portuguais, ... °(

Conclusion: Plus de vacances pour Bastos pendant 10 ans ! :P

Seat 1 : Jussi Nevanlinna, 30, from Helsinki, Finland - 894,000 chips

Jussi only turned 30 a few weeks ago and is getting one of the best birthday presents ever – a seat at an EPT final table.. Jussi only started playing poker three years ago and turned pro within a year. He mainly plays online - anything from $10/20 to $50/100 No Limit cash games. He has already competed in a few EPTs including San Remo and the Monte Carlo Grand Final last season, and London and Budapest this season. His biggest result so far was making the final table at The Helsinki Freezeout

2009 – he came 8th for ¤14,045. He won even more than that for his second place finish in a side event at the same festival - ¤ 25,171 in the ¤200 PLO event. In his spare time, Jussi enjoys tennis. He is a Helsinki local where he has been living with his girlfriend for the last two years.

Seat 2 : Peter Hedlund, 40, from Stockholm, Sweden - 367,000 chips

This is Peter’s second EPT final table after his 7th place finish at EPT3 London where he netted £36,000. He first started playing live in Las Vegas in 1992 but it took him two years to really get the hang of the game. By 1997 he was playing semi-professionally, juggling poker with working in the financial markets, and full-time for the last five years. He is being cheered on in Copenhagen by his friends including the seven-time speedway world champion Tony Richardson. Peter’s mum and girlfriend are supporting him from home - he doesn’t want them here as they will be a distraction from what he calls work. Away from poker, Peter enjoys playing his grand piano - a hobby he admits to being to being terrible at. He also loves to cook and eat food and is a big follower of many sports.

Seat 3: Jens "Jeans" Kyllönen, 19, from Helsinki, Finland – 366,000 chips

Jens has been playing poker for about two years and started playing full-time once he completed his national service in the army. He used to mainly play NLHE but nowadays his main game is Pot Limit Omaha. Jens is aiming to compete at all the remaining EPTs this season as he really likes the EPT atmosphere. Nevertheless his best results so far have come from playing online - EPT Copenhagen is only his second big international overseas tournament.

Seat 4 : Jonas Klausen, 22, from Odense, Denmark - 262,000 chips

Jonas Klausen is best known as an online player where he competes under the username Tulkas. Results to date include going deep in the $215 Heads Up tournament., 3rd in the Sunday Million, 6th place in the $320 PLHE WCOOP event and 7th in the $530 $250,000 guaranteed tournament – all on PokerStars. Now Jonas has turned his attention to live events and has already achieved quite a record. Coming from the same hometown as world champion Peter Eastgate, the poker pro from Odense finished 11th at EPT Barcelona and 12th at EPT San Remo last year. Jonas also made two final tables at the national Danish poker championship and cashed at the WSOP last year. He enjoys both live and online poker and is considered one of the very best Scandinavian online players. Nevertheless, if there was no such thing as poker, Jonas Klausen says he’d like to train has a police officer.

Seat 5: Eric Larcheveque, 35, Puteaux, near Paris, France – 221,000

Eric has only been playing poker for two years but has already final tabled in three major tournaments. In 2007, he came 6th at the Master Classics in Amsterdam for ¤87,000 and the following March came 8th at the Irish Open for ¤75,000. He also won a $500 tournament at the Bellagio last summer for a further $50,000. Eric, who runs an online entertainment company, recently created a small poker team with his friends Sébastien Decamps and Thierry Tregaro. The team is named Cenacle after the poker table brand. EPT Deauville was Cenacle’s first outing but none of the trio cashed; Copenhagen is a different story however and now Sebastian and Thierry are happily cheering on their captain as he reaches his third major final table. Eric’s wife Yveta is supporting him from home in Riga, Latvia, where she is looking after the couple’s five-month-old daughter Anastasia.

Seat 7 : Petter Petersson, 28, from Malmo, Sweden - 407,000 chips

Petter Petersson has been playing poker full-time for the last five to six years. He mainly plays online under the screen ID “Slaktarn” and is best known for beating Patrick Antonius in a $25k heads-up PLO tournament. But the taciturn Swede is now turning this attention to live events and has played in several EPTs already. This is his best live result to date and although he is thrilled to make the final table, he says it was a pretty tough journey to get there. He is planning to compete in all the remaining EPTs this season.

Seat 8: Rasmus Hede Nielsen, 27, Copenhagen, Denmark - 1,031,000 chips

Rasmus plays online as ‘Jungleras’ - named after a Danish comedy series. He has been playing poker professionally for two years and already accrued some great results with three major final tables finishes: 4th place here at EPT Copenhagen last season, 2nd place in the WSOP $1,500 NLHE event for nearly $400k and 5th place at the Master Classics in Amsterdam for ¤106k. . 2009 also got off to a great start for him when he became a father for the first time to daughter Silja. His hopes now are to cement his achievements by winning a major poker title. Rasmus studied business at college but has never used his degree as he has focused on poker instead. He said:

“I haven’t seen all the other players, but I have great respect for my fellow countryman Jonas Klausen.”

Seat 9: Anders Langset , 23, Eidsvåg, Norway - 1,119,000 chips

Chip leader Anders has pretty much surfed his way to the final table of EPT Copenhagen. He reckons the total number of hands he’s played online is around 3,000 and his only live experience comes from playing in the card room in the “Ocean Sands” casino in the Dominican Republic where he has been holidaying for the last few months. Anders was bought into EPT Copenhagen by his father and it’s his first ever live tournament. Anders graduated in logistics from university and is planning to continue with his studies next summer. He is currently working as the manager of Norway’s third-biggest cycling club. If he wins EPT Copenhagen, he plans to sail around the world with his buddy.
