Ville Wahlbeck on playing in Tallinn: There‘s a good chance I won’t leave the Hilton

WSOP bracelet winner Ville Wahlbeck confirmed that he is joining OlyBet Kings of Tallinn.

Wahlbeck was the first Finnish player to win the World Series of Poker bracelet after taking down the $10,000 World Championship Mixed Events 8 Game in 2009 for a $492K payday.

“I don’t play much poker anymore but there’s going to be loads of friends and loads of action during the Kings of Tallinn. I’m excited that I’m going and it’s going to be great fun,” Wahlbeck said.

“I used to live in Tallinn and I really like the city. However, there’s still a good chance I only stay inside the Hilton and gamble,” he laughed.

Ville Wahlbeck has more than $1.7 million in live tournament winnings.
