Jens "Ingenious89" Kyllönen Win a Quick Million

Move aside Patrik Antonius.  Welcome a new Finnish online poker phenom.  His name: Jens "Ingenious89" Kyllönen.

The 2009 EPT Copenhagen winner enjoyed yet another milestone over the weekend.  Kyllönen just won a cool million dollars on Full Tilt Poker over the weekend, playing against the likes of Gus Hansen and Andreas “Skjervoy” Torbergsen.

It’s become a little easier for the European poker pros to win on Full Tilt Poker these days now that they’ve been chased out of the US market.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall…the cream rises to the top…The rich get richer.  All three of these statements are pretty common figures of speech. Additionally, all three are good descriptions of the last 24 hours in the nosebleed online poker games as one poker legend reminded all why he is arguably the greatest, while the hottest young player in the game reminded us all that he is just as likely to lose an obscene dollar figure as he is to winning.
