Skjervøy Sails to $200k Win
Andreas “Skjervøy” Torbergsen annihilated the competition in the high stakes games on Full Tilt Poker last night.
The young Norwegian pro hit the $200/$400 Cap PLO Six-Max tables and recorded over 1,329 hands. He eventually left with a $201,250 profit.
It was no cake-walk for Torbergsen who had to beat players such as Phil Galfond, Patrik Antonius and Phil Ivey over the course of the evening.
Torbergsen is one of the lesser-known pros in the high stakes online scene but he's actually a full-time instructor with CardRunners.
Born in the town of Skjervøy in Norway, Torbergsen emerged on the high stakes online poker scene in Spring of this year and quickly lost nearly $200k. He righted the ship near the end of the summer and, thanks to last night, is currently up $379,083 on the year.
It was all about the young guns on Full Tilt yesterday as Skjervøy, harrington25 ($154k), URnotINdanger2 ($119k) and Urindanger ($59k) were the biggest winners.
Meanwhile numerous members of the old guard were down a considerable amount. Luukie21 took the biggest hit with $229k in losses while Ziigmund lost $118k, Phil Ivey lost $88k, Patrik Antonius lost $85k and Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond lost $81k.
