A Swedish player named Jan Failla is considered to be one of the best professional poker players of the world. In fact, he has been ranked by some as the most talented and promising poker player of the entire world.
Most of the people know him by his nickname, Will Failla. His poker name means “blind-side”. He has also been called “Devil” by one of his former players because of his tough and aggressive playing style.
Like many other professional poker players, Jan Failla actually began his poker career as a walk-on. He played for just a few months before being given a spot in the Team PokerStars tournaments. He would then become a member of the professional team and would win most of the tournaments.
In 2020, Failla was a part of a poker team which included another Swede, Wilfred Bischofberger. This team won the highest-stakes tournament in the history of poker – the World Series of Poker.
Failla had recently quit playing the game to be a businessman and investor. However, he and Wilfred Bischofberger decided to get back into the game after it became apparent that the World Series of Poker would not end.
During this time, Wilfred Bischofberger asked Failla to bring his old poker cards back to the United States and place them at his disposal. The two got together and started playing the game again.
After a couple of weeks, Failla and Bischofberger were all set to start the season again. This time, Failla got to bring back a little bit more – another set of cards. He told his friends that he was bringing back more than fifty extra cards, which he later announced this party at Bischofberger’s house.
All of a sudden, Will Failla went on to become one of the best professional poker players in the world. No longer just a player who competes for Team PokerStars. Failla even began to work for them, even traveling to Las Vegas.
Failla has shown himself to be a great businessman and investor. He continues to be a beloved figure for Team PokerStars and for the entire poker community, although he maintains that he has nothing to do with the World Series of Poker.
Like Wilfred Bischofberger, Failla will be a great asset to the World Series of Poker when it goes on to the next phase. If you think about it, they are looking for people like Will Failla to come in and help them out in the future. Since he has already been there once, they will probably not miss the guy too much.
Failla would also have a great story to tell. So if you want to know about something that happened or someone that got famous in a poker tournament, ask him about it.
Will Failla is not only an accomplished poker player, but he also happens to be an important figure in the poker community. He should not be forgotten and you might hear a lot more about him.
