“Who is Evy Widvey Kvilhaug,” you might be asking yourself, “and why is she the featured guest on the latest episode of Poker In The Ears?”

That would be a dead giveaway that you weren’t paying a lick of attention during our coverage of the EPT Monte Carlo Main Event last week, in which case: a) we’re resisting the urge to say shame on you, and b) it’s time to make up for your mistake by having a look back at what you missed.

Take your time. There’s a lot of good stuff in there. We’ll wait.

Okay, now that we have that out of the way, the next thing you’re probably asking yourself is, holy crap, what in the world was it like to go from qualifying for €55 to knocking out three players in a row on the TV table at an EPT Main Event?



“There was so much going on there,” she tells Stapes and Hartigan, starting at 24:20 of the episode, of her insane start to Day 4. “What was going on in my mind was, ‘Oh no, I’m all-in on the first hand!’ When [my pocket jacks] held up I was thinking, okay, I can relax a bit.”

Then she picked up pocket aces. “It was an easier call, but I was thinking, ‘Is someone joking with me? What is happening?'” And then, after the aces held, it was jacks again. “It was such a shock, there were so many emotions going through me, that I don’t remember much of it, actually.”
