Biography

Espen Uhlen Jorstad is a Norwegian professional poker pro who resides in London, United Kingdom.

In 2022, he won two WSOP bracelets including the 2022 WSOP Main Event for $10,000,000, becoming the first Norwegian to win poker's biggest title.

The former Unibet Poker Ambassador, also won Event #55: $1,000 Tag Team alongside Patrick Leonard for $148,067 and his first WSOP bracelet.

Many will know Jorstad from his online poker grind, mostly on PokerStars where he is known as "Hymn2ninkasi" and GGPoker where he uses the alias "COVFEFE-19". Primarily a cash game player, Jorstad dips his toes into the tournament poker world on occasion.

Jorstad had never cashed at the World Series of Poker until this year. However, he does have 20 WSOP online cashes to his name, including a sixth-place finish in the 2021 WSOP $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event Online Championship worth $603,058.

The popular Twitch streamer cashed in his first live WSOP event at the start of the 2022 WSOP, finishing in the money in Event #5: The Housewarming. He and Patrick Leonard took down Event #55: $1,000 Tag Team for $74,042 each plus both players' first WSOP bracelet. Another cash, this time in Event #68: Million Dollar Bounty, set Jorstad up for deep run to the Main Event title.

Jorstad won his $10,000 WSOP Main Event seat online at GGPoker where he won a $1,050 satellite. He, Vadim Rozin, and Tom Kunze were the last three remaining GGPoker qualifiers. Jorstad secured a free WSOP Europe Main Event seat by virtue of reaching the final table while the two other GGPoker qualifiers fell short.
