Unibet Ambassadors Vlog Pursuit of €1 Million Poker & Crypto Profit in 1 Year
Unibet Ambassadors Espen Uhlen Jorstad and Rauno ‘Estonian Jesus’ Tahvonen, together with their friend and roommate Rauno Kiviloo will attempt to make €1 million ($1.24 million) collective profit in 2018 from poker and crypto trading.
Sounds familiar? The premise for the show is reminiscent of the 2 Months $2 Million poker reality show that aired on G4TV in 2009. That group of four fell more than $1 million short of their goal, but they also only gave themselves two months to achieve it a hefty goal — and crypto wasn't even a thing yet really.
The three Unibet Poker personalities, living together in Tallinn, Estonia, are launching a new weekly vlog series Friday, March 9 where the trio who will open their lives, struggles and successes on camera. Check out the trailer to get a taste of what's in store.
About the Players
The only non-Estonian, Espen Uhlen Jorstad, who hails from Norway, is a former master brewing student who was picked up by Unibet in late 2016 after he started streaming his poker exploits on Twitch. Last year, Jorstad completed a 24-hour Twitch stream marathon, and he recently logged his biggest live cash of €20,000 for finishing 8th in the Nordic Poker Championships.
Rauno Tahvonen joined the Unibet team after qualifying for the 2017 Unibet Open London €10 online, then finishing 6th for $17,022. In addition to playing poker, he does charity work and recently went to Palestine with an organization called SkatePal to teach children skateboarding.
Rauno Kiviloo became friends with Jorstad and Tahvonen through a Skype study group and is on a roll as of late. His last three live tournament cashes have been final table appearances including a fourth-place finish in the Kings of Tallinn High Roller and earlier this year, a sixth-place result in the Unibet Open London High Roller.
Their weekly vlogs documenting the progress of their lofty collective goal will be released each Friday beginning March 9, and a hand history review video will be posted every Wednesday. You can tune in to their YouTube channel to catch the action and watch the Unibet pros track their poker and crypto portfolio progress, as the world watches.
