Jonathan is an accomplished player, from England, he took down ESPT - UKIPT - Marbella Main Event

, which is his biggest live achievement so far. There were several well-known players on the final table, with the likes of WPT National Champion

Andreas wasn't planning to play the event, but one of his friends had won a package to the tournament, playing an online satellite on Unibet Poker
. “They asked me to join for three weeks, but I said no as I had to focus on school. But at last, I joined anyway and was just going to play a satellite and hang out with friends if I didn't win a seat. On Friday I just decided to buy in.”
Even though he was maneuvering with a short stack for several hours, Wiborg finally managed to take the lead and pulled away at the beginning of the heads-up. However, Schuman was able to double up to close to even.
In the last hand, Jonathan 4-bet shoved with Ace-Queen and Andreas, holding Ace-Jack, called. The board seemed to run out clean, until the river, where the young Norwegian spiked a lucky Jack for the river.
