Janne "Durian" Juutilainen began his poker career playing in home games with friends in the mid 90's. The most popular game in Finland at the time was a 5 card stud derivative called sökö. He started playing online when online poker was in its infancy primarily in free-rolls, play-money games and LHE. In mid 2002, he transitioned to PLO and began to win serious money. He has been playing professionally for the last 10 years and has solidified himself as a top player in the high stakes PLO games.
