Andreas Hoilvold is a professional poker player. He is originally from Sunderland England where he was born in 1972. He moved to Norway, Oslo in 2008, and then to Kristiansand in 2009. He currently calls Las Vegas Nevada his home.

Hoivold first burst onto the scene in 2006 when he won the 2007 EPT Championship Event in Germany. In Season 3 of the EPT he would go on to face some of Europe's toughest players and come out on top winning almost $1 million in the process. This would be his largest cash to date as of 2014.

Before this win, Hoivold was still a decent player. He had placed and final tabled numerous big events all throughout Europe. Masking these accomplishments even better was the fact that he had only been playing professionally for less than 7 months.

In his short time being a professional he would final table and place 3rd in the 2006 Ladbrokes Poker Million. His finish would garner the attention of the poker community as well as $250,000. Ladbrokes would sign the player to a sponsorship deal following his finish.

His total lifetime winnings are $1.6 million as of 2014. He mainly plays overseas in Europe, but does visit the prestigious WSOP time to time. He has 14 cashes at the WSOP and over $70,000 in winnings. He adds 1 final table to his name as well. In 2014 he cashed 4 times at the WSOP.

Andreas has over $1 million in winnings on the EPT in 5 cashes. He has 1 championship and 1 final table.

He is one of the more popular Scandinavian players and calls Gus Hansen his poker idol. His notoriety in Europe has earned him numerous sponsorships and deals with various poker sites in his time as a pro. He gained worldwide fame when he appeared in season 6 of High Stakes Poker. He would only stay for the first 2 episodes, but his performance was noteworthy.
