Andread Hoivold - Struggling for Poker Legality
Andread's favorite game is Omaha H/L Pot Limit. His total winnings exceed $1,470,000. The people, who he takes example from, are Daniel Negraneu, Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, Gus Hansen and Age Spets.
He started playing poker in 2002. In 2006 he won Ladbrokes Tallinn Challenge 2006, which took Tallinn, Estonia. He won in 2,000 Tallinn Challenge Cup - No Limit Hold'em. That was a great achievement for him as he cashed $ 30,852.
The next great thing happened to him that year was third place Poker Million V, Sky Sports Final. That was a real break through for him. He won $250,000 then.
The next year in 2007 he won EPT in Dortmund. He did it in 5,000 EPT Main Event. And of course he received almost $900,000. That became his largest winning so far.
As of mid summer of 2010 he made his way to 37th place in 41st World Series of Poker. It was Hold'em Mixed (Limit / No Limit) and he cashed $5,503.
Andread Hoivold wishes to have poker legal in Norway.

It's not whether you won or lost, but how many bad-beat stories you were able to tell.
