Finnish Pro Joni Jouhkimainen Joins PartyPoker

Finnish Pro Joni Jouhkimainen Joins PartyPokerPartyPoker’s roster of sponsored pros has just swelled to 19 after it was announced that Joni Jouhkimainen has become the latest ambassador to join the site. Following his signing, the Finnish pro who now joins a long list of other talented players which includes the likes of Sam Trickett, Patrick Leonard, Natalia Breviglieri, and Marcel Luske, commented:
“I’m really happy to be joining team partypoker. All the efforts that partypoker has been making recently to put players first have made me – and many others – really happy. partypoker’s initiatives, both live and online, are really good for the whole poker community.”
Joni Jouhkimainen, 26, has been cashing in on the live tournament circuit since 2009, and has now amassed $2,466,074 in winnings, placing him at number 6 on Finland ‘All Time Money List’. In 2012, he also enjoyed his biggest years to date with $817,936 in earnings, including a 3rd place finish at the €5,300 EPT Barcelona Main Event for €404,050 ($496,436).
In 2017, Jouhkimainen added a further $233,644 to his bankroll, and in December closed out the year with an impressive performance at the €2,200 partypoker Nordic Poker Championships in which he managed a 4th place finish for €70,000 ($82,356). That was also the year PartyPoker decided to branch away from the WPT and launch its own partypoker LIVE tournament series, which has since proved to be a huge hit amongst players.
In a sign of the tour’s growing popularity, it will be debuting in Punta del Este, Uruguay from February 24th to March 4th as the partypoker LIVE Latin American Poker Championships. The six event series will be spread over nine days and feature an impressive guaranteed prize pool of $2 million, including a $1 million guarantee for its main event. An added attraction of the venue is that Punta del Este is considered one of Uruguay’s premier seaside resort, complete with excellent restaurants, and a lively nightlife.
Jouhkimainen said that he was now eagerly anticipating a greater involvement with the series, stating: “The partypoker LIVE schedule for this year also seems really exciting, so I am very much looking forward to seeing what 2018 brings. I cannot wait to play live events with partypoker.”
