Like father, like son...

Happy birthday dad! Ronnie bought his father into the ME
Regular blog readers will of course know ParadisePoker Tour Season 2 League champion Ronnie Espensen for his poker skills – but you not be quite so familiar with the Dane’s softer side!

Ronnie gave his father a great gift, in the PP blog’s humble opinion, for his 50th birthday by bringing him out to ParadisePoker Tour Vienna and entering him into the Main Event.

The pair both played the €100+15 warm-up event too and it dad Tommy Jensen who made the greater impression, finishing 7th from the 100-odd player field to claim a €480 prize. Not too shabby for daddy!

Having bagged his entry into all Season 3 events plus €10,000 for winning his league title last year, Espensen seems to have passed on a few of his skills to the man he taught to play, but insists they remain very different players.

“He is so patient, it’s unbelievable,” Ronnie told the PP blog, “He can sit there for hours waiting for the right hand and the right spots, so maybe I can learn something from him there.

“He might outlast me in the Main Event too, but we’ll see how we both get on.”
