From HighStakesDB.com:

Jens played throughout the day from early morning until close to midnight, taking several short breaks but putting in over 2600 hands across 73 tables ranging from $25/$50 up to $100/$200 PLO. 

It was his 2.5 hours spent at the $100/$200 PLO tables in the middle of the day which produced all of Jens winnings however and where he won his biggest pots.

Kyllönen recently offered up a mere $200,000 for his Virgin Galactic space journey. 

“Space has always fascinated me. The first opportunity to try out one of the first space flight, I took the opportunity,” Kyllönen said.
