Daily Quotes

God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e., everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.
Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens, 1991

William Thorson, a Young Professional Swedish Poker Player

William Thorson is only 27 years old but on his account there are 23 cashes in different tournaments. His total winnings exceed $2,000,000. He is triple final table player in the European Poker Tour (EPT).

What concerns his World Series of Poker, in 2006 he walked away with $907,128 on the 13th place. That time he played No Limit Hold'em. But the next time, just in a year in the same tournament he won the third place in Limit Hold'em and cashed over $130,000.

Thorson won the PokerStars Baltic Festival Main Event in Tallinn, Estonia and took $98,000 home. His recent major tournament is 2010 WSOP Main Event. Also he is one of five non-American players in the top eight in chips, which is quite impressive.

Except poker games, he likes riding and training horses. Also he is the member of Team PokerStars Pro.
