Skjervøy Sails to $200k Win

Patrik Antonius
Patrik Antonius was one of Skjervøy's many victims last night.

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.
