Many players have come out of Sweden, one of the more notable ones is Viktor Blom, AKA Isildur1. But one of the best is a relatively unknown who goes by the name Andreas Berggren. He lives in Gothenburg Sweden and is considered one of the best online players.
He goes various screennames online. mrAndreeew, r4ndomr4gs and bushuset are just a few. His Poker Stars account is where he has done the most damage. He's accumulated more than $2.7 million in winnings here. He's won various major tournaments including WCOOP and SCOOP events.
In 2014 he was ranked the number one player in the world for a short time. He currently sits at number 7 in 2014. He's also won the triple crown of online=e poker by winning a SCOOP, WCOOP and an FTOPS event.
He has a total of 3,290 cashes online with $4.6 million in total winnings across all sites. His largest cash was for $174,000.
Some of his accolades include winning the Super Tuesday for $120,000. He's also won an ECOOP event for $174,000 which was his biggest win.
Playing live his results are not as impressive but he has not played live all that much. He only has a total of 10 cashes in live tournaments with $246,000 in winnings. He's had 2 cashes at the WSOP and WSOP Europe.
His best live finish was in 2007 when he placed 24th in the main event of the WSOP Europe for $61,000. His other cash in the WSOP came in 2008 when he made another deep run in the American WSOP Main Event placing 196th for $38,000.

It's obvious his skills and results are best served online. With plenty of time left in his career, he may overtake the number 1 spot for all-time money won online and go down as one of the best to every play in this venue.
