I am Andreas Høivold, was born in Sunderland, but I have lived most of my life in Norway and 100 % consider myself a Norwegian.
After having had a few normal jobs in my life, I turned to poker in 2006.
I quit my job in an IT company to go for poker full time. From the start all went great and I never looked back.
From 2009-15 I lived in Las Vegas. That was great for poker, but I missed Norway - both the nature and the ocean, but mainly friends and family.
Even before moving to Vegas I have had a thought about making a database about everything that had to do with poker. I worked on the project that ended up as 1stSpade.com for years.
Today I live in Kristiansand in the south of Norway. I like it here! I am now part of a small group that runs a circle in the new poker app, Pokio.
The idea of 1stSpade is to collect every information related to poker at one place, or at least links to where you can find it. The focus will not only be on the information about poker players but also on everything else that has to do with poker.
Pokio is a poker app for phones and tablets. It’s the only legal poker app out there and you are welcome to join the club 1stSpade (ID: 100033). Check out pokio.com for more info.
