Swede reaps benefit of PartyPoker/PL.com freeroll

The Money

Thirty-two-year-old Jerker Lindblom managed to outlast 133 other players to take down the $5,000 freeroll offered by PartyPoker.com and PokerListings.com.

Lindblom has been playing for about four years now and hails from Västervik, Sweden. He earns a living as a DJ and poker player.

"My little brother introduced me to poker," he said. "He showed me an episode of the WPT and after that I played some live games."

Now Lindblom plays online poker every day and makes the journey to the casino at least twice a month for some live action. Lindblom got a little luck to win the freeroll but played a solid game throughout.

"The field was mixed," he said. "I got a lot of good hands at the end of the tourney and built a big stack for heads-up play."

Because of that big stack it took only five hands for Lindblom to best his opponent in heads-up play. Lindblom held A-6 while his opponent had Q-5 and all the chips went in the middle. There were no surprises on the board and Lindblom walked away the winner.

Lindblom checks PokerListings.com a few times a week to catch up on news, tips and room reviews. His favorite room to play at is PartyPoker.com.

"I play at three different sites but most of the time at Party Poker because there are always a number of tables running and a lot of players," he said. "I like the support too. I receive quick answers and they are always kind."

When asked what he would with the money he won, Lindblom responded that he would withdraw a percentage and add the rest to his bankroll.
