skjervoy is 27th on the list of biggest poker winners tracked by HighstakesDB. The data is based on 83915 hands played and his total cash game profits amount to $2,481,581.

Andreas "skjervoy" Torbergsen is a Norwegian pro who has been absolutely obliterating the high stakes poker scene. By some people’s accounts, it looks like skjervoy has come out of nowhere to dominate the nosebleed tables at Full Tilt Poker; however, he has actually been around the online game since 2005 - the same year he won a WSOP prize package, and got hooked on PLO during his short stay in Las Vegas.

Torbergsen has been playing lower stakes up to PLO 25/50 for a long time, but first showed up on HighStakesDB in March of 2010 when he was down over $124k. However, this would be his lowest point because skjervoy quickly worked off the deficit, and earned some massive profits over the next several months to sit at $1.77 million by September of 2010. Most of his winnings came in $500/$1,000 PLO, and he was certainly not afraid to get involved in huge pots during this time period.

On September 28th-29th, 2010, skjervoy played in pots worth $543,780(lost), and $407,146 (won) against Cadillac1944.” Not coincidentally, this is the same day that Torbergson made big news at HighStakesDB for winning over $1 million in a 24-hour period. What’s amazing about Torbergson’s run is that most of it has come against the world’s top $500/$1,000 PLO competition such as Gus Hansen, Isildur1, Rui Cao and Ziigmund.

Torbergsen is known to start a lot of tables and arent afraid of battling vs the best regs on his stakes.

Torbergsen has used his impressive online poker accomplishments to teach other players the ropes through CardRunners. He signed with CardRunners in the summer of 2010, and has quickly become one of the most popular instructors there.

With all of the hours that skjervoy puts into instructing other players and playing online, he doesn’t have a whole lot of time for the live tournament scene. Even still, he’s managed to cash in the 2008 WSOP Main Event (551st place, $23,160), and a couple of 2009 Norwegian Poker Championship side events.
