PokerStars books Thor Hansen for EPT Barcelona
Thor Hansen is undoubtedly one of the best-known and most colorful characters in poker. Called the 'Godfather of Norwegian Poker', he has been living off poker and gambling for over 40 years. Hansen has made and lost millions, and has led an extraordinary life among the rich and famous all over the world, writes Mad Harper.
Now Hansen, who has won two World Series bracelets and holds the record for most cashes all-time in the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), has put his explosive life story down in print in a new book called 'Uncensored'. PokerStars is celebrating the publication of the book with a series of promotions and events in the Nordic region and also by sponsoring the veteran pro at EPT Barcelona next week.
Hansen's book - which includes tales of smuggling, robbery, murder, gambling addiction and sex - is only available in Norwegian at present but Norwegian players only can try winning a copy in a series of special 'Thor Hansen bookclub' tournaments online at PokerStars in November and December - see Hansen's PokerStars page for details. Norwegian-speakers can also buy the book in the PokerStars VIP Shop for 2,750 FPP points.
