Jorbeck Triumphs in the PartyPoker Late Night Poker Event

On March 19th, 2008, during the last broadcast of the PartyPoker Late Night Poker event, the viewers of Channel Four in Britain got to witness 36 year-old poker player Andreas Jorbeck edge out the final table full of poker games professionals to get the championship for this year's event. Jorbeck, who is from Stockholm, Sweden, won his slot in the event by joining an online satellite event at PartyPoker and edged out several poker professionals to win the event. The participants for the final table include Eddy Scharf, Surinder Sunar, Roland de Wolfe, Andy Black, Ian Frazer, Maria Demetriou and David Tighe.

Jorbeck was able to make it to the final table of the 5th qualifying event of the tournament where he was up against online qualifier Jon Parsons, Joe Beevers, Liam Flood, Rene Mouritsen, Agnieszka Rylik and Dave Ulliott. Jorbeck was not favored to win the event at the beginning, but it did not take long for Jorbeck to make his presence felt in the game. Andy Black edge out British poker player Maria Demetriou with his pocket kings against Demetriou's pocket queens.

Black also edged out Ian Frazer with his A-K against Frazer's A-T and a king on the flop. Then Jorbeck started making his move. Eddy Scharf decided to go all-in with the use of an A-Q against the T-9 of Jorbeck and a Jorbeck using a 9 on the river finished off Scharf. Roland de Wolfe also started of making his presence felt, edging out David Tighe and Surindar Sunar, leaving de Wolfe, Jorbeck and Black at the gaming table.

Despite a remarkable start, Black was the next one to leave the final table after Jorbeck run him out with jacks against his A-2 cards. He then went in all in with his next card hand with his large blind and could not see a hand to hold him up in the game. Jorbeck and de Wolfe were the only ones left in the table for the final showdown and in the end, Jorbeck claimed the championship.
