CardRunners Welcomes PLO Pro Andreas "Skjervøy" TorbergsenJuly 30, 2010 9:30 am
Instructional poker site CardRunners hasn’t had the best of times of late, having lost two of its main trainers Brian Townsend and Cole South recently.
However, finally the site has some good news to announce after securing the services of a Norweigan pro thought to be one of the best Pot-limit Omaha players in the world today.
Andreas “Skjervoy” Torbergsen started playing poker in 2005, and aside from taking a degree in marketing at the University in Norway, has been able to notch up considerable wins at both PokerStars and Full Tilt in the meantime.
Now as a CardRunners instructor, members will be privy to a great deal of advice and information from the young Pot-limit Omaha specialist with more than $1.4 million in online winnings to his name.
Torbergsen started playing Pot-limit Omaha after winning a WSOP package to Las Vegas in 2005. After that, he found playing with four cards more stimulating than just two and so proceeded to grind his way up the online PLO levels, playing $10-20 PLO by late 2006, and then eventually moving on to the $25/$50 and $100/$200 game.
Commenting on what has made him such a successful player, Andreas “Skjervøy” Torbergsen said:
“I’m a feel player. I like to believe my instincts are good, and I love trying out stuff, but I’ve learned to use the math behind…I’ve been lucky to have some good friends to talk poker with along the way and learned a lot from the 2+2 forums in the beginning.”
His loose-aggressive style has certainly worked wonders for his bankroll and earlier this year he even managed to set a new personal biggest one day win record of $279,642.
CardRunners’ members will now certainly reap the benefits of having such a top PLO specialist in their midst.
