      Hi guys!


      Tomorrow the Swedish Community Manager team will go to SPT Seville to support our member HenrikX (Niklas Toorell), as you might remember from the WSOP Las Vegas where he came on place 68, winning around $114k.

      We will bring a camera (not video camera unfortunately), and our laptops, so we will try to take some pictures, get some comments from the players and maybe even some interviews. If we are lucky, we might find a way to do something on video.

      So now my question is to you guys: Do you know any other PokerStrategists or other famous players you want to especially hear about?

      I would also like to remind you that we are mainly going here to support our HenrikX, but when we got time we will try to get some other stuff for you to read in this thread.


      Cheers, Joakim and Fredrik

      Hi all!


      Because of lack of time I couldnt make the image smaller, so it might take some time to load. ;)



      Now we are finally at the hotel, just on the verge to go to the Casino. Let's just hope we find the way there ;) The check in is 6pm but the tournament starts at 8pm.

      Wish HenrikX good luck, here we go!


      Cheers, Joakim, HenrikX and Fredrik

      They've just started playing and we've made ourself comfortable here in the press section. VIP for me and Joakim ;)

      Apparently, Swedes are good at playing satellites, cause we've met a ton of Swedish players here who've qualified. Sweden rule!

      Will post some pictures as soon as they're finished uploading.


      HenrikX has lost a small amount of chips, but nothing too serious. He will soon be back on top!

      HenrikX took a beating the first few hands but is now recovering with aggressive play.

      One hand he raised from cut off, button 3-bet. BB and HenrikX calls. The flop comes A5A, BB checks, HenrikX thinks for a while before making a value bet. Everyone else folds. *ka'ching*

      The dealers get their final instructions.

      HenrikX getting ready for some fish and chips. *badum tish* :f_biggrin:

      Joakim sneaks up to HenrikX in a dealer change and has a quick word with HenrikX:

      How are you doing?
      - Well, not so good.

      But you did get some chips back in that A5A pot.
      - Yeah.

      ...
      - Although I've still got lots of big blinds *hint of a smile*.

      Yes, you are quite deep - You can manage this. Good luck!
      - Thanks


      Starting stack: 15 000
      Estimated stack of HenrikX: Slightly more than 13 000

      MP1 limps and HenrikX (BU), SB and BB calls/checks.

      The flop comes 568 of spades, SB bets and MP1 and HenrikX calls.
      Turn Ac, gets checked to HenrikX who makes a pot bet. SB folds and MP1 calls.
      River 6h, HenrikX makes a valuebet but gets reraised. He thinks for a while before calling.

      HenrikX shows 79o for flopped straight, but its not enough against Villains 55 and thus a full house.

      HenrikX is down to approximately half of the starting stack, about 7,500 chips left.

      He can make a comeback he still has chips left hasn't he. A chip and a chair is all it takes.

      Blinds are 50-100, HenrikX got around 7000 chips from the 15000 he started with.

      Blinds go up in 10 minutes, but first a break.

      A man I found when I was going around taking photos. :)



      Fredrik is reporting live while I feed him with Photos and Information from HenrikX table.



      María Maceiras (May), Spanish Champion, that for instance got in place #70 in WSOP this year.



      The game is back after the break and HenrikX starts off with stealing some chips from the poor fishes at the table. Is this the start of a comeback?
