Linus Loeliger Poker Club

I am very proud of this win because I think I played the best poker I have ever played and the competition was really tough. The Purple Jacket is an important title and it feels about the same as winning the WSOP Europe Main Event last year, but that time I had some tears when I won, I was more emotional. I want to thank everyone that supported me, and partypoker Poker Central, PokerGO and everyone else that helped to organize these events.”
