Erik Hellman Sweden's Last Hope at WSOP Main Event (Video)

The last Swedish player standing in the 2012 WSOP Main Event seems to be going by two names. To his friends and the Swedish poker community he is Jonatan Hellman. But on official WSOP records he appears as Erik.

A simple clerical mistake to be sure, since Erik is the first name that appears on his passport, but until the WSOP rectifies the situation we're forced to call him Erik.

Hellman was a professional poker player for the last few years but has plans to go back to school, even if he wins the Main Event and $8.5 million. And he's got a shot. Right now he's 13th out of the remaining 36.

Check out the interview above to get to know him a little better, and follow his progress with our WSOP 2012 Main Event Live Updates.
