Jeans89 is 8th on the list of biggest poker winners tracked by HighstakesDB. The data is based on 560629 hands played and his total cash game profits amount to $4,242,060.
Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen is the latest in a long line of standout Finnish poker pros that includes Patrik Antonius, Ilari FIN, Sami “LrsLzk” Kelopuro and Jani Vilmunen.
Many people also know Kyllönen under his Full Tilt screen name “Ingenious89,” which is where he first gained international poker fame. Unfortunately, the fame and winnings took a while since he lost over $388k from May, 2010 to March, 2011. But April is when Ingenious89 really took off since he earned around $1.4 million, which includes one of the top days in online poker history. As evidenced by the graph below, he is today one of the biggest earners in online poker history on both Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker.
In addition to his excellent online poker success, Kyllönen has made an additional $1.36 million in live tournament winnings; this includes a 2009 PokerStars EPT Scandinavian title ($1,120,815), and a 12th place finish in the 2009 EPT Barcelona ($57,225).
