Trip in the space: The poker pro Jens Kyllönen decided

Recognized as a online poker professional player, Jens "jean89" Kyllönen decided to try a new adventure with a trip in the space. Note that Kyllönen is a star of online High Stakes cash games. But he also made great achievements in live tournaments. Indeed, he is known by the public by having been victorious at the European Poker Tour Copenhagen in 2009. With his performance, he currently holds approximately $ 1.4 million in live tournament earnings and $ 3.5 million in virtual tournament winnings. The Finn would be ready to break his piggy bank to experience such a trip into the space. Moreover, he has already made a reservation with the company Virgin Galactic.

This is a company run by Richard Brunson who specializes in the organization of space travel for tourism. Its services are generally intended for the wealthiest men on the planet. In this context, the billionaire Guy Laliberté has already participated in a trip organized by Virgin Galactic to finance the activities of the One Drop Foundation. Regarding Kyllönen, his great expedition that will last two hours will be held in 2014. He will be then the first poker player to visit the space. He invested € 160,000 in this adventure that fascinates him for a long time. Before taking off, he will be trained in the launch base in New Mexico.
